Megan Fox Early Life and Education:

Megan Fox was born on May 16, 1986, in Oak Ridge, Tennessee,  to parents Gloria Darlene (née Cisson) and Franklin Thomas Fox, and spent her early years in Rockwood. Her upbringing was marked by strict Pentecostal beliefs and familial challenges, including her parent’s divorce when she was three years old and her stepfather’s abusive behavior. Despite these difficulties, Fox excelled in dance and drama from a young age, beginning her training at age five in Kingston, Tennessee, and later continuing in St. Petersburg, Florida. At 13, she ventured into modeling after winning awards at a convention, eventually leaving high school at 17 via correspondence to pursue a career in Los Angeles.

Throughout her schooling, Fox faced bullying and social challenges, often feeling like an outcast due to her assertive personality and preference for male friendships. She described her middle school years as particularly difficult, resorting to eating lunch in the bathroom to avoid harassment. Despite these hardships, she remained determined to forge her own path and pursued her passions in entertainment, ultimately finding success in modeling and acting, despite her aversion to formal education.

Megan Fox Career:

Megan Fox began her acting journey with a debut in the 2001 romantic comedy “Holiday in the Sun,” where she played the role of spoiled heiress Brianna Wallace. Following this, she appeared as a guest star on sitcoms like “What I Like About You” and “Two and a Half Men.” Fox’s early career also saw her in an uncredited role in the action film “Bad Boys II” in 2003. In 2004, she made her feature film debut in “Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen,” starring alongside Lindsay Lohan, and also landed a regular role in the ABC sitcom “Hope & Faith,” portraying Sydney Shanowski until the series’ cancellation in 2006.

In 2007, Fox rose to prominence with her lead role as Mikaela Banes in the live-action film “Transformers,” garnering nominations for MTV Movie Awards and Teen Choice Awards. She reprised her role in the sequel “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen,” which achieved box office success upon its release in 2009. However, controversy arose during filming when director Michael Bay reportedly ordered Fox to gain weight. Despite her success in the franchise, Fox was not cast in the third installment, “Transformers: Dark of the Moon,” following controversial remarks comparing Bay to Hitler.

Following her departure from the “Transformers series,” Fox took on her first lead role since the franchise in the film “Jennifer’s Body” (2009), earning praise for her performance despite initial mixed reviews. The film later gained a cult following and was critically reassessed as a feminist classic. Additionally, Fox starred in the western superhero film “Jonah Hex” (2010) as Tallulah Black / Leila, although the movie was met with criticism and underperformed at the box office, being named the “worst picture of the year” by the Houston Film Critics Society. Despite the challenges, Fox continued to navigate her acting career with resilience and versatility.

Megan Fox’s career continued to evolve with various film, television, and commercial projects. Despite some setbacks, she maintained her presence in the industry. Notably, in 2012, she briefly appeared in Sacha Baron Cohen’s “The Dictator” and had a featured role in Judd Apatow’s “This Is 40.” She also voiced Lois Lane in the animated comedy “Robot Chicken DC Comics Special.” In a commercial for Brahma beer, she showcased her versatility. Setting aside past differences, Fox collaborated with Michael Bay again for his reboot of “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” in 2014, portraying the lead character April O’Neil.

In subsequent years, Fox’s career expanded into various genres. She starred in the Plarium video game “Stormfall: Rise of Balur” and temporarily replaced Zooey Deschanel in the sitcom “New Girl” from 2015 to 2016, earning positive reviews. She reprised her role as April O’Neil in the sequel “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows.” Notably, she starred in the Korean War film “The Battle of Jangsari” in 2018 and took on lead roles in films like “Above the Shadows” and “Think Like a Dog” in 2019. In 2020, she starred in “Rogue” and “Midnight in the Switchgrass.” Additionally, Fox ventured into writing, releasing her debut book of poetry titled “Pretty Boys Are Poisonous” in 2023. Throughout her career, Fox showcased her versatility and resilience, solidifying her status as a prominent figure in entertainment.

Megan Fox Personal Life:

In 2009, Megan Fox became a target of the infamous “Bling Ring” group, who robbed her then-boyfriend Brian Austin Green’s home to access her possessions. Apart from her professional life, Fox has openly discussed personal struggles, including her form of brachydactyly called clubbed thumb, her battle with obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD), insecurities, and self-harming tendencies. Despite her challenges, she has emphasized the importance of her Christian faith in keeping her grounded. Fox and Green have been active supporters of Generosity Water, funding the creation of over ten water wells for the organization.

Regarding relationships and her sexuality, Fox has expressed distrust and dislike of men, often debunking the perception of her as a “wild and crazy sexpot.” She identifies as bisexual and has openly discussed her views on sexuality, mentioning that she would never date a bisexual woman due to her own biases. However, she takes pride in being viewed as a bisexual icon and finds fulfillment in helping others navigate their sexual identity.

In addition to her personal struggles, Fox has numerous tattoos, each with its own significance and story. From symbols representing strength and balance to quotes from literature and philosophy, her tattoos reflect her journey and experiences. She has also revealed her miscarriage experience in her book “Pretty Boys Are Poisonous,” sharing her vulnerability and further connecting with her audience on a deeply personal level.


Megan Fox began dating actor Brian Austin Green in 2004 when she was 18 years old and he was 30, after meeting on the set of “Hope & Faith.” Despite an initial hesitation from Green due to their age difference, they became engaged in November 2006. However, their engagement faced ups and downs, with a brief break in February 2009 before reportedly getting engaged again in June 2010. They eventually married on June 24, 2010, and together they have three sons. Their relationship saw challenges, including a separation in 2015, followed by a reconciliation and dismissal of divorce filings in 2019.

In May 2020, Brian Austin Green announced their separation after nearly 10 years of marriage, leading to Fox filing for divorce for the second time in November 2020. Their divorce was finalized on October 15, 2021. Shortly after separating from Green, Fox went public with her relationship with singer Machine Gun Kelly in June 2020. Their relationship became widely known after the release of Machine Gun Kelly’s song “Bloody Valentine,” which featured Fox in the music video. They announced their engagement on January 12, 2022, but Fox announced the end of their engagement on March 21, 2024.
