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''. 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]].

She also practices BrutalHonesty, being extremely blunt in interviews about her bisexuality, how awful her movies are, how she didn't really act in ''Transformers'', how Creator/MichaelBay is nuts, etc. When asked if she wanted to play Franchise/WonderWoman, for example, Fox quickly dissed the character, making her unpopular with some segments of comic book fandom.

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]].

!!Known for:
* AdamWesting:
** In ''Film/TheDictator'', where she plays a version of herself that has affairs with rich dictators.
** Also in ''How to Lost Friends and Alienate People'', where she plays a ditzy young Hollywood starlet who can barely act and only gets roles because of her good looks.
* CelebrityResemblance:
** Quite a lot has been made in the media about Fox's supposed resemblance to Creator/AngelinaJolie, physically and in terms of their habits (both are bisexual, both tend to be typecast as {{Action Girl}}s or MsFanservice, both have a wild child past, etc.). [[http://i.huffpost.com/gen/96085/thumbs/s-MEGAN-large.jpg This]] picture even illustrates it.
** Across the Atlantic, some British viewers consider [[http://images2.fanpop.com/image/photos/10300000/Stacey-lacey-turner-10346009-265-400.jpg Lacey Turner]] ([[Series/EastEnders aka Stacey Slater]]) to be a poor man's version for Megan Fox.
* HollywoodHypeMachine: The symbol of it in TheNewTens. The second ''Transformers'' became a huge hit; she was instantly propelled into worldwide fame, with near-constant hype from many sources. Her burn-out is a shining example of when this ''doesn't'' work out for somebody.
* RealLife/MeanCharacterNiceActor: [[invoked]] 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.
* OldShame: [[invoked]] Like most of the cast and crew, she disliked ''Film/TransformersRevengeOfTheFallen''. She isn't a fan of ''Film/JonahHex'' either, saying that she doesn't want her children to '''ever''' see it.
* TheOtherDarrin: [[invoked]] She replaced the nearly nine-years-older Nicole Paggi as Faith Ford's oldest child for seasons two and three of ''Hope & Faith''.
* StarDerailingRole: [[invoked]]
** ''Film/JennifersBody'', which was essentially HollywoodHypeMachine: The Movie. A Major Marketing Blitz was put around the fact that this was Fox's first big starring role outside of her ''Transformers'' fame. Not only did it under-perform, but her performance got torched by critics.
** ''Film/JonahHex''; even though she didn't have much of a role in the film, the fact that the film was a critical and commercial failure (only made around $10 million total and has a 12% rating on RT), and the fact that she was the most-hyped person in the cast certainly didn't help her any.
* TypeCasting: [[invoked]] Was cast as the AlphaBitch on a few (pre-''Transformers'') occasions. Now she's shed that, only to be typecast as {{Action Girl}}s - although there are of course worst type-catings. Her character in ''Film/JennifersBody'' was almost a combination of the two types.
