Childhood and teenage years
Megan Fox was born on May 16, 1986, in Memphis, Tennessee, in a very modest family. The actress spent the first part of her childhood in Tennessee, being raised in a home of the Pentecostal religion. She began taking drama and dance lessons at the age of five.
As her parents later divorced and her mother remarried, the two, along with Megan’s older sister, moved to St. Petersburg, Florida while she was only 10. At the age of 13, Megan Fox had already started a promising modeling career.
In 1999, Megan Fox won numerous awards at the American Modeling and Talent Convention contests. This success convinced her to drop out of school and move to Los Angeles at the age of just 16.
That same year, 1999, Fox made her debut in her first film, the comedy “Holiday in the Sun”. The film that had a huge number of fans, went straight to DVD. In the following years, Fox continued to appear in smaller television productions, and her next major role came in 2002 when the Swedish production selected her for the role in the series “Ocean Ave”. That same year, Fox starred opposite Amanda Bynes in the film “What I Like About You”.
2004 was a big year for Fox. She appeared in the CBS comedy “Two And a Half Men”, alongside Charlie Sheen and Jon Cryer, and in the sitcom “The Help”. She was also asked to star in the ABC sitcom “Hope & Faith”, and her talent earned her a Young Artist of the Year nomination in 2005. Fox returned to film, where she agreed to star alongside Carla Santi in “Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen”.

With her impressive looks, Megan Fox was named the sexiest woman alive by FHM magazine in 2008 and entered the list of the hottest actors under 25.
She also appeared in the second movie of the “Transformers” series, but for the third, she left the project, apparently due to disagreements with Michael Bay.
Other roles, larger or smaller, followed, most of them very successful with teenagers, and at the end of 2018, she became the host of a four-episode series on the Travel Channel, “Legends of the Lost with Megan Fox”, which explored the historical and mythological values of people and events long past, such as the Trojan War.
In June 2010, Megan Fox got engaged to actor Brian Austin Green, David from Beverly Hills, 90210. The two had been engaged before but called off the wedding after two years of dating.

In August 2015, Brian Austin Green and Megan Fox announced that they were separating after 11 years of dating. But they reconciled again in 2016. They broke up again in 2020 and the actress started to date Machine Gun Kelly.
