Fox was not included in ''Film/TransformersDarkOfTheMoon'' because of her statements comparing working under Bay to [[GodwinsLaw working for Hitler]] (Bay said in June 2009 that Fox was fired on orders of executive producer Creator/StevenSpielberg, who disapproved of her comments about Bay). Fox and Bay have apparently reconciled and she was cast as April O'Neil in the Bay-produced remake of ''Film/{{Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles|2014}}'' and [[Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtlesOutOfTheShadows its 2016 sequel]].

'''Megan Denise Fox''' (born May 16, 1986) is an American actress and model. In 2004, she made her film debut with a role in the teen comedy ''[[Film/ConfessionsOfATeenageDramaQueen Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen]]''. In 2007, she co-starred as Mikaela Banes, the {{Love Interest|s}} of Creator/ShiaLaBeouf's character, in the [[SummerBlockbuster blockbuster]] action film ''Film/{{Transformers}}'', which became her StarMakingRole. Fox reprised her role in the 2009 sequel, ''Film/TransformersRevengeOfTheFallen''. Later in 2009, she starred as the eponymous lead in the black comedy horror film ''Film/JennifersBody''. Fox is also considered one of the modern female sex symbols, with her status as a MsFanservice being so well established that the promotional posters for ''Jennifer's Body'' had nothing but Fox on the poster with hardly any indication what the movie was about. Even when she's playing a man-killing demon, [[EvilIsSexy she's still hot]].

* RealLife/MeanCharacterNiceActor: She's not nearly as mean as some of the characters she's played. She said that she was quite shy in high school and is the exact opposite of the popular [[Film/JennifersBody Jennifer Check]]. However, her tendencies of displaying brutal honesty that leads to rather offensive comments have given her a less than savory reputation.
* TheOtherDarrin: She replaced the nearly nine-years-older Nicole Paggi as Faith Ford's oldest child for seasons two and three of ''Hope & Faith''.
