In 2001, Fox made his acting debut as the rival of spoiled heiress Brianna Wallace and Alex Stewart (Ashley Olsen) in the romantic comedy Holy Sun, which was released straight to DVD on November 20, 2001. In the following years, she made guest appearances in the comedies What I Like About You and Two and a Half Men. Fox also appeared as an uncredited extra in the action film Bad Boys II (2003). In 2004, Fox made her film debut opposite Lindsay Lohan in the musical comedy Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen, playing the supporting role of Carla Santini, Lola’s (Lohan) rival. She was also cast in a regular role on ABC’s Hope and Faith portraying Sydney Shanowski, replacing Nicole Pagg. Fox aired the second and third seasons until ABC canceled the series in May 2006.
In 2007, Fox cast Mikaela Banes in the lead role in the 2007 live-action film Transformers, based on the toy and comic book saga of the same name. Fox played the love interest of Shia LaBeouf’s character Sam Witwicky. Fox was nominated for an MTV Movie Award in the Breakthrough Performance category, as well as three Teen Choice Awards. She ordered two more Transformers sequels, reprising the role of Mikaela in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Controversy arose over Fox’s performance on the set of the sequel, when the film’s director, Michael Bay, ordered the actress to gain ten pounds. The film was released worldwide on June 24, 2009, to box office success. Fox was planned to star in the third episode of “Transformers: Dark of the Moon”, but was not included because she claimed that she compared working under director Bay with Hitler. Bay said in June 2009 that Fox was fired at the request of executive producer Steven Spielberg, but Spielberg denied the claim.
In 2009, Fox had her first lead since the Transformers series; she portrayed the title character in Jennifer’s Body, written by Academy Award-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody. The film initially received mixed to average reviews upon release, with Fox’s performance receiving praise. Over time, however, the film gained cult status and was hailed by critics as a “forgotten feminist classic”. According to Cody, the film was mismarketed by executives focusing on a young male audience. In April 2009, she began filming the Western superhero movie Jonah Hex, portraying Jonah Hex’s (Josh Brolin) gun-toting beau Tallulah Black/Leila. The film was released on June 18, 2010. Despite top billing, Fox described her role in the film as a cameo. Jonah Hex was a critical and commercial failure in the United States, and international distribution was canceled due to its poor performance. The Houston Society of Film Critics called the film “the worst picture of the year.”
Fox co-starred with Mickey Rourke in the drama Passion Play. After premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival, its traditional theatrical release was bypassed in favor of streaming, with only two screens showing the film briefly to meet contractual obligations. Rourke noted that the film was “terrible. Another terrible movie.” Fox appeared with Dominic Monaghan in the music video for Eminem and Rihanna’s single “Love the Way You Lie”. In 2012, Fox
made a brief appearance in the Sacha Baron Cohen comedy The Dictator and played a role in the Judd Apatow comedy This Is 40. She played the role of Lois Lane in the animated comedy Robot Chicken DC Comics Special; an episode of the sitcom Robot Chicken that aired as a one-off special on Cartoon Network’s adult swimming segment on September 9, 2012.
In January 2013, Fox appeared in a Brazilian TV commercial for Brahma beer. In February 2013, Fox put aside its differences with former director Michael Bay and worked with him again on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014), starring April O’Neil. In 2015, Fox was cast as Amelia Delthan in the Plarium video game Stormfall: Rise of Balur.

Megan Fox Health Condition
Megan Fox says she struggles with body dysmorphia is a psychological condition in which people focus on their appearance or what they perceive as their physical defects. Speaking about her struggle with body dysmorphia and self-acceptance, Megan said: “I have body dysmorphia. I don’t ever see myself really the way other people see me. There is never a point in my life where I loved my body. Never, ever. When I was little, that was like an obsession I had that I should look this way. And why I had an awareness of my body that young? I’m not sure.”
She added: “It definitely wasn’t environmental because I grew up in a very religious environment where bodies weren’t even acknowledged. The journey of loving myself is going to be never-ending.”
Fox has a form of brachydactyly known as clubfoot, and has discussed his obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), insecurities, and self-harm, and admitted to having low self-esteem.
