Date of Birth: May 16, 1986
Born in Rockwood, Tennessee, Megan Denise Fox had a love of performing from an early age. She began her training in drama at the age of five, attended a dance class at the local community centre in Tennessee, and was involved in Kingston Elementary School's chorus and the Kingston Clippers swim team. At the age of 10, Fox's parents and older sister moved to Florida where Megan continued to thrive in her training and finished school.
Fox's entry into the limelight started at age 13 when she first began modeling and acting, winning several awards at the 1999 American Modeling and Talent Convention in Hilton Head, South Carolina. But Fox soon found that modeling did not satisfy her thirst for Hollywood, and she began to pursue acting. Her first big break came in 2001 when she made her film debut as Brianna Wallace in the Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen straight-to-DVD movie, Holiday in the Sun. Following her debut role, Fox landed guest appearances on the tv shows Ocean Ave., What I Like About You, Two and a Half Men, and The Help.
Her breakthrough role came in 2007 when Fox starred opposite Shia Labeouf in the blockbuster hit Transformers . The part transformed her from unknown actress to Hollywood sexpot as she was voted the number 1 sexiest woman by FHM readers in 2008. Fox has also made it onto Maxim magazine's Hot 100 list four years in a row (finishing at number 18 in 2007, 16 in 2008, 2nd in 2009, then slipping a few spots to #5 in 2010).
Although she filmed the sequel Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen , Hollywood's newest 'It' girl will not return for a third movie. Instead, she filmed a role in the box office and critical bomb Jonah Hex (2010), as well as starring opposite Mickey Rourke in Passion Play , which screened at the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival. Recent roles include the comedy Friends with Kids (2012), a part as herself in The Dictator with Sacha Baron Cohen and a role as reporter April O'Neil in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014). In 2016, she'll reprise that role in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows .
Fox married longtime boyfriend Brian Austin Green (whose name she has tattooed on her hip, along with eight other tats on various parts of her body) in 2010. They have two sons together: Noah who was born September 27, 2012 and Bodhi who was born February 12, 2014.
