CAREER

At age 16, Fox launched her career after winning several awards at the 1999 American Modeling and Talent Convention in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina.

Fox made her film debut in the 2001 film Holiday in the Sun as the spoiled heiress Brianna Wallace and rival of Alex Stewart (Ashley Olsen). She then landed guest appearances on Ocean Ave., What I Like About You, Two and a Half Men and The Help from 2003 to 2004. In 2004, Fox starred in Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen alongside Lindsay Lohan. She was later cast in a recurring role on the television series Hope & Faith, in which she portrayed Sydney Shanowski from 2004 through 2006.

Fox’s big break came when she acquired the lead female role of Mikaela Banes in the 2007 live-action film Transformers, based on the toy and cartoon saga of the same name. She played the love interest of Shia LaBeouf’s character Sam Witwicky. In June 2007, Fox was cast in How to Lose Friends & Alienate People, starring alongside Jeff Bridges, Simon Pegg and Kirsten Dunst. The character Fox portrayed is that of a young Hollywood starlet getting her first taste of fame. The film premiered in October 2008, and she has signed on for two more Transformers sequels.

Fox is working with Amanda Seyfried and Adam Brody in Diablo Cody’s second feature film titled Jennifer’s Body, which is due to be released in 2009.

There was some controversy surrounding Fox’s appearance while filming the sequel of Transformers when Michael Bay, the movie’s director, ordered the actress to gain 10 pounds.

Warner Bros. chose Megan Fox as the clear front-runner replacement for actress Angelina Jolie in the third “Lara Croft: Tomb Raider” franchise movie, but Fox turned down the role.

Personal Life

In a frank interview with GQ Magazine, Fox claimed that she once fell in love and sought to establish a relationship with a female stripper when she was 18 years old. Fox used the experience to illustrate her belief that, “…all humans are born with the ability to be attracted to both sexes.” On 14 May 2009, Fox stated that she is bisexual.

Fox has nine tattoos, including a poem on her ribcage, a Chinese word for strength on her neck, the name “Brian” on her hip, and a picture of Marilyn Monroe’sface on her right arm.

Quotes

  • I guess I see a resemblance between us two, but I want to become my own person.
  • I really enjoy having sex, and that’s offensive to some people. Women are the quickest to call other women sluts, which is sad. I haven’t met a lot of men who’ve said, “You like having sex? What a dirty whore you are!”. That’s because they wish their wives or girlfriends would have more sex with them.
  • I just had an incredible amount of empathy for her my whole life. I cry when I see her on camera.
  • People who don’t like me talk about it as though I’m trash because I have tattoos. I find that insane because it’s 2008, not the 1950s. Tattoos aren’t limited to sailors. It’s a form of art I find beautiful. I love it.
  • I didn’t get along with Lindsay Lohan on Confessions Of A Teenage Drama Queen, but you have to consider that we were 16-year-old girls. I haven’t seen Lindsay since then, but I imagine she’s grown and become a different person. I know I have. From what I’ve experienced, women aren’t good friends to one another. When guys want to hang out with you because your personality is badass, women immediately hate you.
  • I don’t think I’ve ever seen anybody commit to a character the way that he did. He makes really outrageous choices and it’s great when everybody else on the set is making more subdued ones and he goes with it and convinces us that it’s brilliant afterwards.
  • I have the libido of a 15-year-old boy. My sex drive is so high. I’d rather have sex with Brian all the time than leave the house. He doesn’t mind.
  • Because I looked older than her, she’d be nice to my face so I would buy her cigarettes. We got away with it every time.
    Is there anything wrong with you?
  • I’m horrible to live with. I don’t clean. My clothes end up wherever I take them off. I forget to flush the toilet. Friends will tell me, “Megan, you totally pinched a loaf in my toilet and didn’t flush.”
  • When I was 14, I thought I was the coolest kid in school because I told everyone the jokes in FHM.
  • I didn’t get along with Lindsay Lohan on Confessions Of A Teenage Drama Queen, but you have to consider that we were 16-year-old girls. I haven’t seen Lindsay since then, but I imagine she’s grown and become a different person. I know I have. From what I’ve experienced, women aren’t good friends to one another. When guys want to hang out with you because your personality is badass, women immediately hate you.
  • Lindsay and I weren’t the best of friends.
  • [on working with Michael Bay] Michael Bay’s name, if it’s attached to a script, you know it’s going to be a huge blockbuster released in the summer, with jets flying over at the premiere and all that kind of stuff. So, I knew it was going to be a huge movie.
  • [on George Clooney] He’s sarcastic, and he has a different girlfriend constantly. It’s considered charismatic. He’s like this James Bond, sexy dude. The older he gets, the better he gets. It’s a double standard. To be outspoken, or different at all, is a problem for women. As soon as you curse or, God forbid, make some sort of sexual reference that’s a joke, you’re labeled a party girl. They don’t do that with men, so I feel it would be a lot easier.
  • [Director Michael Bay] doesn’t like really skinny actresses. He’s been traumatized by them for some reason in the past. So I always try to put on eight to ten pounds before [filming], and I’m always the fattest I’ve ever been when making a Transformers (2007) movie.
  • [on her Marilyn Monroe tattoo] I committed to having her face on my arm for the rest of my life, so I have to be a pretty big fan.
  • I don’t want to have to go on talk shows and pull out every single Sat word I’ve ever learned, to prove, like, ‘Take me seriously, I am intelligent, I can speak.’ I don’t want to have to do that. I resent having to prove that I’m not a retard.
  • Wonder Woman is lame. She flies around in an invisible jet, but she’s not invisible. I don’t get it.
  • Olivia Wilde is so sexy she makes me want to strangle a mountain ox with my bare hands. She’s mesmerizing.

Hello Megan,
My name is Stu, from Kent, England. I wanted to write to you and I initially thought I better write something passionate and meaningful and then I thought, I’ll write something that is off-the-cuff, and not pre-planned, it has more meaning. Something similar to how I write a wedding speech, that way it comes from you and has honesty.
What made me laugh was the bit about you don’t clean and you leave your clothes hanging around, what’s wrong with that? Hahah, O I get it, that is something a man would do but not a woman? Well I think pre-conceived notations about what a woman should do are kind of dead. Tatoo’s are the same thing, although I like it when a tattoo has been etched on your skin that has meaning, maybe something similar to your gilded butterflies? I have one tattoo, it is a tattoo that simply says “Metallica”, my fav band. I had it since I was 18. Me and a few friends went to a tattooist, drunk I might add and had it done. Apparently, the worst thing you can do is get drunk before having a tattoo because it thins the blood and stops the tatoo from healing, so my “Metallica” tattoo never looked great from the start but it had meaning, band like Metallica and a fav of yours Motley crue were inspirational at that time in my life.
What’s your fav track at the mo or the track you have played most this year? I have got slipknot’s new album which I like, although my music collection is a bit weird by that I mean I listen to everything and anything. I play guitar so if a hear a tune I like I don’t care who sings it, be it Britney, Madonna, or Taylor Swift although keep that to yourself I have to keep up my macho image to friends of course. Love music.
Are you working on any movies currently? I really liked you in Transformers, you fitted the role well. Not sure what MB was thinking, maybe he was scared that you might become bigger than his film? Anyway, maybe a break from this franchise was a good thing, you know to lead you down a different path? I think you would be good as a super hero, maybe in the avengers? What, no you think? Come on, it would suit you well.
Okay, I’m going to go, hope you reply.
