In 2010, she was seen in Giorgio Armanio mascara print ad.
She began her acting career in 2001, with several minor television and film roles, and played a regular role on the Hope and Faith television sitcom.
Fox began dating actor Brian Austin Green in 2004, after meeting on the set of Hope and Faith; she was 18 years old, while he was 30.
They became engaged in November 2006. In February 2009, they had ended their engagement.
Later that year, Fox was targeted by a group of fashion-motivated criminals known as The Bling Ring, who robbed Green home for access to Fox possessions.
Fox and Green were reported to have become engaged again on June 1, 2010, but Fox stated that she and Green had been continuously engaged since 2006.
Fox and Green married on June 24, 2010 in a private ceremony at the Four Seasons Resort on Maui.
Fox filed for divorce on August 21, 2015, a few days after she and Green announced their separation.
By early 2016, the pairing were back together and expecting a third child.
Together, they have three sons, Noah Shannon Green (born September 27, 2012), Bodhi Ransom Green (born February 12, 2014) and another born in 2016.
In 2004, she made her film debut with a role in the teen comedy Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen.
In 2007, she co-starred as Mikaela Banes, the love interest of Shia LaBeouf character, in the blockbuster action film Transformers, which became her breakout role.
Fox reprised her role in the 2009 sequel, Transformers Revenge of the Fallen. Later in 2009, she starred as the eponymous lead in the black comedy horror film Jennifer Body.
In 2014, Fox starred as April O’Neil in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and reprised the role in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Out of the Shadows (2016).
Fox has a form of brachydactyly called clubbed thumb, and has discussed her obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD), insecurities, self-harming, and has acknowledged that she has low self-esteem.
She stated of her OCD, This is a sickness, I have an illness—this is not OK anymore.
She told Esquire in January 2013 that her Christian faith is still very important to her, she believes it keeps her grounded. She said that she still speaks in tongues, having done so since she was eight years old.
With regard to relationships and her sexuality, Fox said that she has a general distrust and dislike of men, and that the perception of her as a wild and crazy sexpot is false because she is asocial and has only been sexually intimate with her childhood sweetheart and Brian Austin Green, she stated that she would rather stay at home instead of going out, and emphasized that she cannot have sex with someone she does not love.
She is bisexual, and said she believes that all humans are born with the ability to be attracted to both sexes.
Megan Fox confirmed her bisexuality in 2011 in an interview with Esquire. She stated, I think people are born bisexual and then make subconscious choices based on the pressures of society. I have no question in my mind about being bisexual, but I’m also a hypocrite I would never date a girl who was bisexual, because that means they also sleep with men, and men are so dirty that I’d never want to sleep with a girl who had slept with a man.
Chris Lee of the Los Angeles Times called Fox a sex symbol of the highest order and added that she is a woman whose hotness has become emblematic of a specific era.
Call Megan Fox the first bona fide sex symbol of the 21st century.
Craig Flaster of MTV stated, Transformers broke Fox into the mainstream, immediately turning her into a household name and international sex symbol.
She has been featured on various magazine covers and hottest and most beautiful woman lists throughout the years, such as Maxim Hot 100 lists and when FHM readers voted her the Sexiest Woman in the World in 2008.
People named her one of 2012 and 2017 Most Beautiful at Every Age.
Scholar Marc DiPaolo stated that Fox achieved instant fame as Mikaela in Transformers because a highly sexualized, erotically idealized figure draped over a car or motorcycle invariably evokes lust in the heterosexual male onlooker and Fox did this by merely leaning low over the hood of a yellow Camaro wearing a flimsy pink belly shirt and impossibly short denim skirt.
To DiPaolo, this pose read as an unequivocal sex invite to male viewers.
The editors of Men Health also credited the Camaro scene with contributing to Fox fame.
Fox said all women in Hollywood are known and marketed as sex symbols, but that this is okay if the woman knows how to utilize the status.
She created a character for her public image because she was unwilling to sacrifice her true self to the world.
Scholars Wheeler Winston Dixon and Gwendolyn Audrey Foster disagreed that every woman in Hollywood is marketed as a sex symbol, and stated that Fox celebrity is based on what she admits is an entirely artificial construct designed for dissemination in the Internet age, a 21st-century media personality in every sense of the word.
Part of her persona included making outlandish comments, which she said helped her reach her level of fame versus being a typical starlet who said all the right things.
Her tattoos, which she began getting at age 19 as a form of self-expression, helped popularize tattoo fashion.
She had over nine known tattoos, including a picture of Marilyn Monroe face on her right forearm, a tribal tattoo on her left wrist, a quote on her shoulder, her husband name Brian on her lower hip, and a colored crescent moon overlapping a five-pointed star above her right ankle.
Author John Tehranian argued that Fox Monroe tattoo enhanced her implicit claims to Monroe legacy as Hollywood leading sex symbol.
Fox initially loved the Monroe tattoo, but ended up removing it in a series of laser surgeries because she felt that Monroe was a negative person and she did not want to attract this kind of negative energy in her life.
Fox public image came under scrutiny when, on September 11, 2009, an unsigned letter from three crew members of Transformers defended Michael Bay against accusations made by Fox about his on-set behavior, including a comparison with Hitler.
In response to the letter alleging that Fox on-set behavior is unpleasant and contrasts her public persona, Bay stated he does not condone the letter or Fox outlandish quotes, but her crazy quips are part of her crazy charm, he still love working with her and they still get along.
A production assistant who worked on Transformers also came out in Fox defense, stating that he had never witnessed Ms. Fox being rude or inconsiderate of people feelings or the work to be done.
Fox said the letter claims were not true and that she had privately spoken with the parties involved, was very fortunate to be a part of the franchise, and was looking forward to continuing her work.
DiPaolo concluded that Fox criticism of the media sexually objectifying girls and women was in stark contrast to her sex symbol status and that this, her defiance of director Michael Bay and frequent outspoken comments stifled her career.
The media often comparing Fox to actress Angelina Jolie, dubbing her the next Angelina Jolie, also affected her image.
The actresses were compared partly because they have a number of tattoos and status as a sex symbol.
The media additionally reported that Fox was to replace Jolie in a new Lara Croft film and that Jolie was displeased by this development, but Fox indicated that these were only rumors and said that she did not want to portray the character.
Fox commented that the comparisons indicate a lack of creativity on the part of the media, and attributed them to both she and Jolie being brunette, having tattoos, cursing, and mentioning and joking about sex, which people find outrageous.
Lee stated that Jolie and Fox are partly differentiated because of Jolie pronouncements on such subjects as the need to ban land mines in Southeast Asia or repatriate Afghan war refugees, while Zach Johnson of E! Online felt that various similarities between Jolie and Fox make them more alike than Fox is willing to acknowledge.
Lynn Hirschbergnov of The New York Times opined that the Jolie comparison would probably have been made by the media eventually, but Fox sped up the process by linking herself to Jolie and that she created an entertaining copy by telling tales of darkness and lust.
The increased media exposure was difficult for Fox, who acknowledged being shy and insecure, to adjust to.
It also positioned her as a potential role model, and later led to her being typecast. She stated that people sometimes avoided her to remain out of the media spotlight, and that she was a different role model for girls that maybe America was not comfortable with.
She rejected the notion of preaching to kids about appropriate behaviors, or about what women should be, but said that she could make young girls feel strong and intelligent and be outspoken and fight for what they think is right.
Fox viewed her constant references to sex as feminist commentary and not simply headline-seeking, and wanted women and young girls to believe that it was okay to feel sexy and find power in that.
She did not view being typecast as attractive as bad and felt that it can enable her to surprise people when she gives a good performance in a film, and inspire her to be an overachiever, but said she is interested in portraying less sexualized characters.
MTV Craig Flaster said that although Fox has been typecast as the big-budget sex symbol, she has shown comedic range.
Fox overexposure in the media led several men websites, such as AskMen, to boycott her in 2009, although some refused to do so, feeling that the boycott was a publicity stunt and therefore hypocritical.
In response to the boycott, Fox told magazine Nylon, in September of that year, that the media blitz for Transformers resulted in an over-extension of her welcome in the media. I was part of a movie that the studio wanted to make sure would make $700 million, so they oversaturated the media with their stars, she said.
I don’t want to have people get completely sick of me before I’ve ever even done something legitimate.
She became much less prominent in the media by 2010, after starring in the less commercially successful films Jonah Hex and Passion Play.
That same year, Fox said, My biggest regret is that I’ve assisted the media in making me into a cartoon character. I don’t regret what has happened to me, but I regret the way I have dealt with it.
Dixon and Foster stated, The problem Fox faces is that the image construct has replaced the real in the minds of the public; and once established, a media persona is hard to recalibrate.
I have no friends and I never leave my house.
I could see myself in a relationship with a girl, Olivia Wilde is so sexy she makes me want to strangle a mountain ox with my bare hands. She mesmerizing.
I resent having to prove that I’m not a retard.
