Megan Fox. biography
Megan Denise Fox was born on May 16, 1986, in Oak Ridge, Tennessee and took her first steps towards the limelight attending dancing and singing lessons at the age of five, coincided with modeling training by the age of 13.
After winning several accolades at the American Modeling and Talent Convention in 1999, Fox decided to leave high school and move to Hollywood in hope of transitioning her modeling success to that of acting. Her decision was later validated when she made her acting debut alongside the Olsen twins in the straight-to-video family comedy Holiday in the Sun (2001).
Fox’s career began picking up speed over the next several years with appearances in various TV shows such as Ocean Ave. (2002-03), What I Like About You (2003) and Two and a Half Men (2004) before landing her first substantial role alongside Lindsay Lohan in the dramedy Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen (2004). Her success continued with a supporting role in the TV series Hope & Faith (2004-06), but tripled in size when she got her big break as Mikaela Banes in the blockbuster Transformers (2007) opposite Shia LaBeouf.
After appearing in the comedy How to Lose Friends and Alienate People (2009), Fox reprised her role in Transformers: Rise of the Fallen (2009), which further increased her popularity. She was set to star in Transformers 3, but later dropped out due to her allegedly making rude remarks about director Michael Bay.
Despite the setback, Fox reignited her career with a starring role in the horror flick Jennifer’s Body (2009) and in the western film Jonah Hex (2010). She also starred alongside Maya Rudolph in the dramedy Friends with Kids (2011) and in the comedy This Is 40 (2012) with Raul Rudd and Leslie Mann.

Megan Fox Husband, Boyfriend, Girlfriend & Dating History Timeline
2000 – 2003
Firefighter Ben Leahy dated Fox for more than 3 years before deciding she was “too wild” for his taste and kicking her to the curb. He’s obviously not the smartest firefighter.
2003 – 2003
Fox was first rumored to be dating exotic dancer Nikita throughout 2003. The rumor remained unconfirmed for many years until Fox sat down in a tell-all interview with GQ in 2008, revealing how she ended up falling for Nikita:
“Well, that year my boyfriend broke up with me, and I decided—oh man; sorry, Mommy!—that I was in love with this girl that worked at the Body Shop [a strip club on Sunset Boulevard]. I decided that I was going to get her to love me back, and I went out of my way to create a relationship with this girl, a stripper named Nikita. I was there all the time—I would go there by myself. I bought her things—perfume, body spray, girlie stuff. I turned into a weird middle-aged married man. I felt like I had this need to save Nikita. I’d get lap dances so I could get to know her, and I’d give her what I thought were great little sound bites of inspiration—like You can do it, you’re better than this! I didn’t want her to be there.”
According to Fox, the relationship didn’t last “very long,” adding, “You know when you’re pushing something and it escalates much too rapidly and it explodes after only two weeks?”
Although open with her sexuality, Fox made sure to clarify her sexual preference, stressing the fact that she’s “not a lesbian,” but at the same time thinks “that all humans are born with the ability to be attracted to both sexes.”
Fox did, however, leave readers in a pool of drool when she revealed, “I mean, 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’s mesmerizing. And lately I’ve been obsessed with Jenna Jameson, but . . . Oh boy.”
‘Oh boy’ is exactly right. It’s the only term that comes to the human mind when visualizing Megan Fox rolling around with Olivia Wilde while Jenna Jameson waits to be tagged in.
