Established as one of the hottest actresses of the moment, Megan Fox is recognized in Hollywood for her sensuality and for having been part of some of the most important film franchises in recent years, in addition to having an outstanding net worth.
A native of Oak Ridge, Tennessee, Fox was born on May 16, 1986 and her parents divorced when she was three years old, so she was raised by her stepfather, Tony Tonachio, who along with her mother was very strict and did not allow her to bring friends over or have boyfriends.
Fox always wanted to be an actress
Fox always knew she wanted to be an actress and make it in Hollywood, so as young as five years old she started taking dance and acting classes, as well as being part of the local youth swim team.
“My mom said it was the only thing I ever said I wanted to do. When I was 4 or 5, I watched ‘The Wizard of Oz,’ and for a year, I asked her to call me Dorothy. When my mom explained to me that Dorothy was not real, that an actress plays her, I decided I wanted to be an actress,” Fox told The New York Times in 2009.
After modeling since the age of 13, her film debut came in 2003, at the age of 15 when she appeared as an uncredited extra in the film “Bad Boys II” and after moving to Los Angeles she landed a few small roles in series such as “What I Like About You” and “Two and a Half Men,” as well as appearing in the November 2001 direct-to-DVD movie “Holiday in the Sun.”
Transformers and Ninja Turtles, big shots for Fox
Her role in “Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen” opposite Lindsay Lohan was accompanied by her participation in a couple of seasons of the TV sitcom “Hope and Faith,” but her big break came in 2007 when she starred opposite Shia LaBeouf in the blockbuster “Transformers,” also appearing in the 2009 sequel.
Among her other films, Fox starred in the tongue-in-cheek horror film “Jennifer’s Body” and was part of the “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” franchise as April O’Neil.
On a personal level, she was in an on-and-off relationship with Bryan Austin Green from 2004 until 2020, with whom she married and had three children. Since 2020 she has been in a relationship with singer Machine Gun Kelly.
