Career & Later Life

Megan-Fox-Career

Fox began her acting career at the age of 15 when she played the spoiled heiress ‘Brianna Wallace’ in the 2001 film ‘Holiday in the Sun.’ Also starring Ashley Olsen as ‘Alex Stewart,’ the film had a direct-to-DVD release.
She guest-starred on ‘What I Like About You’ and ‘Two and a Half Men.’ In 2004, she played ‘Carla Santini’ in ‘Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen,’ which starred Lindsay Lohan in the lead.
In 2009, Fox reprised her role as ‘Mikaela Banes’ in ‘Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen,’ the sequel to the 2007 film ‘Transformers.’ Directed by Michael Bay, the film starred Shia LaBeouf, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson, and John Turturro in important roles.
She was to star in the subsequent sequel ‘Transformers: Dark of the Moon,’ but was not included in the cast because of her statements likening director Michael Bay to Adolf Hitler.
In 2009, she starred as the eponymous lead in the film ‘Jennifer’s Body,’ which was written by the Academy Award-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody. She also starred in ‘Jonah Hex’ as ‘Lilah.’ Unfortunately, the movie was a commercial failure.
She featured with Dominic Monaghan in the 2010 music video of Eminem and Rihanna’s single ‘Love the Way You Lie.’ She also appeared in magazines, such as ‘Maxim,’ ‘Rolling Stone,’ and ‘FHM.’
Fox starred alongside Mickey Rourke in ‘Passion Play,’ which received poor reviews. She then voiced the ‘Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins’ in ‘Na Nai’a: Legend of the Dolphins,’ a 3D documentary film.
In 2012, she appeared briefly in Sacha Baron Cohen’s comedy ‘The Dictator.’ She then went on to appear in Judd Apatow’s ‘This Is 40.’ She voiced the character of ‘Lois Lane’ in the film ‘Robot Chicken DC Comics Special.’
In January 2013, Fox appeared in a Brazilian television commercial for ‘Brahma Beer.’ She set aside her differences with director Michael Bay to work in ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ in which she played ‘April O’Neil.’ In 2016, she reprised her role as ‘April O’Neil’ in ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows.’
She appeared in the 2019 movie ‘Above the Shadows,’ which is a supernatural romance film, written and directed by Claudia Myers. In the same year, she also played ‘Soledad Paladin’ in James Franco-directed comedy-drama film ‘Zeroville.’ In 2019, she was also cast to play ‘Jacqueline’ in a drama film titled ‘Big Gold Brick.’

Personal Life

Megan-Fox-Personal-Life

 

In June 2010, Fox became engaged to actor Brian Austin Green of Beverly Hills, 90210 fame. The couple had been engaged previously, following a two-year relationship, but canceled their wedding in 2009. Shortly after their second engagement, Fox made headlines when she lost her two-carat diamond ring on a beach while vacationing with Green in Hawaii. It was later revealed that the couple exchanged vows while they were in Hawaii.

The couple has three sons, Noah (b. 2012), Bodhi (b. 2014), and Journey (b. 2016).

In August 2015, Green and Fox announced their separation after 11 years together, before reconciling in 2016. In May 2020, it was reported that the couple had separated again. Fox began a relationship with rapper Machine Gun Kelly soon thereafter.

Film and TV Roles

‘Holiday in the Sun,’ ‘What I Like About You’

That year, Fox landed her first big break when she was cast as a bratty heiress in the 2001 Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen comedy, Holiday in the Sun. The film, which had a large cult fanbase, went straight to DVD. Over the next few years, Fox continued to appear in guest-spot television roles. Her next role was in 2002, when she appeared in the Swedish-produced soap opera Ocean Ave. That same year, Fox enjoyed a guest-starring role on the WB network show What I Like About You, starring Amanda Bynes.

‘Hope & Faith,’ ‘Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen’

The year 2004 was a big one for Fox. She made an appearance in the CBS hit comedy Two and a Half Men, starring Charlie Sheen and Jon Cryer, and was a series regular on the short-lived WB sitcom, The Help. She also began appearing on the ABC sitcom Hope & Faith, in which she played the daughter of Faith Ford’s character in the second and third seasons. Her performance earned her a Young Artists Award nomination in 2005. Fox also returned to film work that year when she won the role of Carla Santi, a rival of Lindsay Lohan’s character, in Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen.

Megan Fox Facts

Country Roads

Fox is a down-south girl: She was born in Tennessee to Gloria Darlene and Franklin Thomas Fox. Her parents split up when Fox was only three, and she was mostly raised by her mom.

Good Catholic Girl

Fox has said that her family was very strict with her growing up: They were Pentecostal and she attended Catholic school. She wasn’t even allowed to invite friends over to the family house, let alone have a boyfriend.

Rebel Rebel

Despite this religious upbringing, Fox wasn’t always the best-behaved kid, and rebelled a bit. She was even banned from a Walmart when she was 15 after she was caught stealing makeup.

Vogue

This girl was definitely no late bloomer: she began modeling at only 13 years old after she won a handful of awards at the American Modeling and Talent Convention in 1999.

Outcast

The actress has been very candid about the difficulties she faced while attending school as a teenager. She was bullied so severely that she had to eat her lunches in the girls’ bathroom—otherwise she was “pelted with ketchup packets” and made to feel like an “outcast.”

Orange You Glad to See Me?

Fox worked some pretty embarrassing jobs as a teenager. At one point, she was working at a Tropical Smoothie in Florida and had to go outside in a banana costume and dance to entice customers into the store. The most embarrassing part? The costume didn’t cover her face, so classmates would drive by, see she was in the banana costume, and bully her more.

We Don’t Need No Education

Perhaps as a result of this bullying, Fox doesn’t have a high regard for formal education. She has called her education in those years “irrelevant,” and she tested out of school at only 17 so that she could move to Los Angeles and pursue her career.

Guy’s Girl

The bombshell describes herself more as a guy’s girl than a girly girl. She has an “aggressive personality,” and has said that she’s had “only one great girlfriend [her] whole life.”

Controversy

Controversy arose again for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. A letter from members of the Transformers crew came out in 2009 criticizing the comments Fox had made about Bay—more specifically, the comments she made comparing the director to Hitler. The crew letter also called the actress “dumb-as-a-rock” and “ungracious.” Fox was subsequently fired from the third film, Dark of the Moon; Bay alleged that the firing orders came directly from none other than legendary filmmaker Steven Spielberg, though Spielberg denies this.

Off and On

Fox has been dating Beverly Hills, 90210 actor Brian Austin Green on and off since 2004—more than 13 years. The couple met on the set of Hope & Faith, a TV show Fox starred in, when Fox was only 18 and Green was 30. Now get a load of this history: they were engaged in 2006, but reportedly called it off in 2009. They then married in 2010, but filed for divorce in 2015. Yet, in 2016 they were back together again and Fox was pregnant with their child. As of this writing they are still together, and it looks like—even with the ups and downs—they are in it for the long haul.

Favorite Quotes from Megan Fox

“What people don’t realize is that fame, whatever your worst experience in high school, when you were being bullied by those ten kids in high school, fame is that, but on a global scale, where you’re being bullied by millions of people constantly.” – Megan Fox 

It is very difficult to be under the microscope every moment of every day. Everything that leaves your mouth becomes this sensationalized news story, no matter what your intentions were when you first said it, so it becomes overwhelming.” – Megan Fox 

I think most of us maintain some sort of fantasy in our minds that we are heroes, if only secretly, that we could really be amazing if only given a chance. That we could all be loved one day. You can always think of yourself as being transcendent or heroic. I think we all are.” – Megan Fox 

Just be you. I’ve learned the hard way and in the end, some people are just so full of hate that no matter what you say or do, they’ll always have something to say.” – Megan Fox

“I personally always find something really scary about watching little girls learning to manipulate their dads by baby talk. Then they grow up and use the same technique on their boyfriends or husbands. That scares me because it’s just so sick on so many levels.” – Megan Fox 

Fearless Lessons from Megan Fox

Now that you know all about Megan Fox’s net worth, and how she achieved success; let’s take a look at some of the strongest lessons we can learn from her:

Don’t Think You Have All the Time in the World Because of Time Flies By Rather Quickly

Do you need proof? It feels like my daughter just turned 3 years old yesterday, but guess what? Alyssa is now 20 years old! I took one blink and she grew up. That’s how fast it feels, so don’t procrastinate. When you want to accomplish something or experience something, go for it.

You’re going to win sometimes and you’re going to lose some time

The faster you learn to accept defeat and failure, the happier you will be. Take a lesson from Benjamin Franklin.

Lots and lots of people are not going to like you

Big deal. Everyone can’t like you or love you. Get over it.
