Megan’s lead role as Mikaela Banes in the 2007 megablockbuster hit, “Transformers” catapulted her into stardom.
The film featured alien robots that mutate into cars, but the real focus was Fox’s almost overnight transformation from an unknown name to a worldwide recognized celeb.
Relationship Roller Coaster Ride
To say that Megan and Brian's relationship was rocky would be an understatement. The two started dating in 2004 after meeting on the set of "Hope & Faith" and were engaged by November 2016.
Unfortunately, the pair ended their engagement in February 2009. However, much like the sitcom characters they played, their '"on-again-off-again" romance meant that they reunited once more in 2010. Life truly does imitate art!
Call My Agent!
Megan eventually signed with a big-time Hollywood agent to propel her career forward.
Well she knew how to pick 'em because the first audition her agent sent her on was none other than... "Transformers!" If that's not a Hollywood Cinderella story we don't know what is.
Very Bright Spotlight
The seismic shift of Megan's world into the public eye was overwhelming for the star. This is was exacerbated by the fact that she was only 21 at the time and that she wasn't fully aware of how popular the "Transformers" franchise would become.
While the attention at the time was mainly positive, Fox has said that the overnight fame left her "shellshocked."
The Angelina Jolie Angle
As soon as Fox made it big on the movie star radar, Hollywood did what it does best and compared the female stars to one another. In this case, Megan was compared to Angelina Jolie. While the stars share some similar physical traits and have at times been labeled as "outspoken", the comparison was unwelcomed by Megan.
Despite being a Jolie fan herself, Megan has made it clear exactly why she's not a fan of the constant comparison. For Fox, it boils it down to media outlets' laziness and inability to view the two women as separate entities.
