Biography

A statuesque actress who flaunted a "bad girl" attitude both on and off the screen, Megan Fox was one of the more popular performers of the new millennium, thanks to roles as spunky girlfriends in features like "Transformers" (2007), provocative layouts in men's magazines, and a much buzzed about romance with "Beverly Hills, 90210" star Brian Austin Green. After a successful stint as a model, Fox eventually graduated to television with recurring roles on "Hope and Faith" (ABC, 2003-06). But it was her breakout role via Michael Bay's summer blockbuster "Transformers" which helped position her as the "new Angelina Jolie." She certainly had the attitude, looks and tattoos for it. The media blitz helped her graduate to leading lady status with significant tough and sexy roles in a number of features, including the inevitable "Transformers" sequel, "Jennifer's Body" (2009) for Oscar winner Diablo Cody, and "Jonah Hex" (2010), among others - all of which virtually assured her status as one of the most popular and desirable actresses of early 21st century Young Hollywood.

In March 2012, Fox and husband Brian Austin Green were named as defendants in a lawsuit filed by a paparazzi photographer, following an altercation between Green and the photog on the beaches of Hawaii in December 2011.

"I know I'm seen as a sex object. I'm just really confident sexually and I think that sort of oozes out of my pores. It's just there. It's something I don't have to turn on," she says. "But I have no idea how to handle it. I don't want to have to be like a Scarlett Johansson—who I have nothing against—but I don't want to have to go on talk shows and pull out every 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." -- Esquire, June 2009
