Megan Fox was one of the more popular performers of the new millennium, thanks to major roles as spunky girlfriends and love interests in features like "Transformers" (2007) and numerous, provocative layouts in men's magazines.
She certainly had the attitude, looks and tattoos for it. The media blitz helped her graduate to leading lady status with significant tough and sexy roles in a number of features, including the inevitable "Transformers" sequel, "Jennifer's Body" (2009) for Oscar winner Diablo Cody, and "Jonah Hex" (2010), among others - all of which virtually assured her status as one of the most popular and publicized members of 21st century Young Hollywood.
She was the daughter of a former tourism director for Roane County, and though a self-confessed tomboy, began exploring acting and dance at the age of five. After relocating to St. Petersburg, FL, she continued her training throughout high school, and soon added modeling to her list of endeavors.
Most notably on a Swedish-produced soap opera, "Ocean Ave." (Syndicated, 2002-03). But she returned to films with a supporting role as Lindsay Lohan's chief rival in the bubbly comedy "Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen" (2004).
