Megan Fox made her acting debut in the 2001 Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen favorite "Holiday in the Sun." At 14, she played the memorable role of mean girl queen bee Brianna Wallace.
Before she attained superstar status, Megan Fox was a Catholic school girl from Oak Ride, Tennessee. Megan began to model as a teenager, which led her to move to Los Angeles when she was 16 to pursue acting. According to a 2008 GQ story, "[Megan's] mom relocated with her, and they lived together and hustled for work."

In 2004, Megan Fox landed a role in her first major film, "Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen," opposite Lindsay Lohan — playing another quintessential mean girl. Megan's portrayal of her character, Carla Santini, garnered the actress a lot of attention from studio execs and Hollywood players.
It was lust at first sight for Megan Fox and now-husband Brian Austin Green. "I liked him right away," she told The New York Times Magazine in 2009. When Megan was 18 and living in New York, she co-starred on the ABC sitcom "Hope and Faith." Brian, who was part of the original cast of "Beverly Hills, 90210," was a guest star. Sparks flew.
These two have had a history of on-again-off-again drama. After two years of dating, Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green got engaged in November 2006. After a short break in February 2009, Brian and Megan were back on again in June 2010. The "crazy in love" pair married that year in a secret ceremony in Hawaii.
Megan Fox's career skyrocketed in 2007 when she was cast alongside Shia LaBeouf in Michael Bay and Steven Spielberg's "Transformers." She reprised her role in the 2009 sequel but did not star in the third installment of the film.
In the mid-aughts, Megan Fox was everywhere. Her media overexposure caused a few men's websites to boycott the actress on Aug. 4, 2009. If you can believe it, the day was labeled "A Day Without Megan Fox." The editor-in-chief of AskMen.com told the New York Daily News of Megan, "You can have too much of a good thing." Yikes.
Megan Fox found herself in hot water after making some questionable comments about her "Transformers" director Michael Bay in Wonderland Magazine in 2009. "He's like Napoleon and he wants to create this insane, infamous mad-man reputation," she said. "He wants to be like Hitler on his sets, and he is." Megan was then fired from the third "Transformers" movie. The two were able to clear the air by 2014, when Megan played April O'Neil in "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles," which Michael produced.
It's no shocker that Megan Fox is a bonafide sex icon. With her intriguing eyes and petite physique, Megan has graced magazine covers from Maxim and GQ to Glamour and Cosmopolitan. Even so, she's definitely a guy's girl more than a girl's girl. She told The New York Times Magazine in 2009, "Women tear each other apart… Girls think I'm a slut, and I've been in the same relationship since I was 18. The problem is, if they think you're attractive, you're either stupid or a whore or a dumb whore. The instinct among girls is to attack the jugular." Drama!
Megan Fox's other notable film credits include 2009's "Jennifer's Body," 2010's "Jonah Hex," 2011's "Friends with Kids" and 2012's "This is 40."
Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green welcomed their first son, Noah, in September 2012 and their second bundle of joy, Bodhi, in February 2014. "Brian and I have done everything you can do to ruin a relationship and we still love each other. I don't want to be boastful and say that we would never divorce, but I can't imagine a scenario we couldn't work through," Megan told Cosmopolitan in July 2014. Still, the couple parted ways in 2015 and Megan filed for divorce. But yet again, the couple reunited — and soon learned their third baby boy was on the way. Journey River was born in August 2016.
This hot mama has a spiritual side too. Although Megan Fox was raised a Pentecostal Christian, she now considers herself purely spiritual — and tapped-in to other energies. Megan told the Los Angeles Times in June 2016, "Sometimes I just know things. I accidentally tap into stuff sometimes. I used to do it as a kid, and I do it as an adult. I crossed over and saw a future string."
Megan Fox also told the Los Angeles Times in 2016 — while she was pregnant with her third child — that acting is no longer her ultimate passion. "I have other skill sets and gifts that are much, much stronger that I am obligated to exercise and use," she explained. "I'm really more intellectually minded. I've always been into alternative history, antiquities, archaeology. I've always been really consumed by these deep mysteries that exist on our planet that can't be explained today by science. They eat away at me." Who knew?!
Megan Fox has definitely tempered since she became a mom, and she's also very progressive in her approach to parenting. Son Noah is pictured here in a pink dress, supporting the notion that Megan does not make her kids conform to gender stereotypes. On the other hand, she has some strict rules. Megan told E! News, "Noah is too young and I try to keep them from television and movies for the most part. I think any sort of screen — whether it's television, iPad or iPhone — is really bad for their brain development so I try to remove that from their lives."
