Megan Fox is an American actress and model. She made her modeling debut at the age of 13, and had a small role in a direct-to-video movie at age 15, but her big break came when she was cast in the sitcom Hope & Faith in 2004. Then, in 2007 Megan won the part of the female lead in the live-action Transformers movie. The blockbuster success of Transformers catapulted Fox into the mainstream, and made her a bonafide movie star and sex symbol of the 2000s.
Born on May 16, 1986 in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, her middle name is Denise. Her zodiac sign is Taurus.
Megan is a practicing Christian, likely still of the Pentecostal denomination.
She attends church on Sundays, and has talked about her faith openly to journalists. “I have seen magical, crazy things happen,” says Fox. “I’ve seen people be healed. Even now, in the church I go to, during Praise and Worship I could feel that I was maybe getting ready to speak in tongues, and I’d have to shut it off because I don’t know what that church would do if I started screaming out in tongues in the back.” (1)
Megan also said that she herself began speaking in tongues at the age of eight. (2)
She also claims that she grew up being raised in a slightly different Christian faith. “I was raised Catholic. I went to Catholic school for 12 years,” Megan has said. (3)
The actress’ political views tend to lean towards the liberal.
Megan also tends to not be vocal about her personal politics. Instead, she will make incidental comments about politicians. Case in point: back in 2008 she expressed her fondness for President-elect Barack Obama in this way: “And God help me because I hope I don’t get in trouble for saying this, but I think he’s so articulate and so intelligent and so charismatic when he delivers speeches, that there is something very sexy about that—very! And he’s also very slim and lean.” (4)
Megan’s husband and father of her three children is actor Brian Austin Green. Her children’s names are Noah (born 2012), Bodhi (2014) and Journey (2016).
Megan and Brian’s relationship has been tumultuous since they began dating in 2004. In November 2006 they became engaged, but ended it in February 2009. On June 1, 2010 they became engaged again and 23 days later they privately wed in Maui.
In August 2015 Megan filed for divorce and the couple’s separation was announced. Things suddenly changed again in early 2016 when the couple reunited and Megan became pregnant with their third child.
Megan’s parents are named Gloria Darlene Cisson and Franklin Thomas Fox. Megan’s parents divorced when she was three years old and she lived with her mother and step father until she was able to support herself.
She has expressed a deep interest in questioning historical record.
“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.” (5)
One of her favorite shows is Ancient Aliens, which presents alternate theories about extraterrestrial visits in humanity’s distant past. (6)
“I would describe myself as a seeker. A seeker is someone who is never content to have obtained enough knowledge. History only gives us a one-sided view of the truth. That’s something I know from personal experience. My own history has been rewritten by other people who had a vested interest in changing the narrative. I haven’t spent my entire life building a career in academia so I don’t have to worry about my reputation or being rebuked by my colleagues, which allows me to push back on the status quo. So much of our history needs to be re-examined.” (7)
She prefers to stay home and does not drink. For hobbies, Megan has said she likes shopping, reading and designing pottery at Color Me Mine. She is also a gamer and has an affinity for Halo: Reach on Xbox Live.
Though portrayed in a sexy light, she describes herself as antisocial.
She has anxiety disorder, low self esteem and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD).
Megan has brachydactyly, which is a shortness of fingers and toes.
