Megan Fox is just a drop dead gorgeous bombshell actress. You know her best from her role as Shia LeBeouf’s fiery love interest in the action flick Transformers. What we like about her? She isn’t all over every gossip page, and she hasn’t been photographed leaving countless late-night clubs scantily clad. Perhaps it’s Megan’s willingness to keep her reputation and her repertoire firmly based in the film industry that makes her so desirable to fans, directors, and of course, men. Maybe it was her modeling career that shied her away from the limelight and instead onto runways. Either way, Fox is unmissable.

She was born in Oak Ridge Tennessee, and grew up in nearby Rockwood, where her drama and dance training began at the early age of 5. At age 10, her parents, sister, and Megan moved to St. Petersburg, Florida, where Fox continued training and performing in plays. She attended Christian private schools from then on, graduating from St. Lucie West Centennial High School with honours. But long before she received a diploma, Fox was launching her career with modelling gigs; she won several awards at the 1999 American Modeling and Talent Convention in South Carolina. Megan Fox

 Three years later, Fox was listed for supporting roles like Holiday in the Sun, as spoiled Brianna alongside the Olsen twins. She also landed guest appearances on Ocean Ave., What I Like About You, Two and a Half Men, and The Help. In 2004, she starred in Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen with Lindsay Lohan. Her big break, though, came with the toy saga flick Transformers, released in 2007. In June, Fox appeared in How to Lose Friends & Alienate People, with Simon Pegg and Kirsten Dunst. She portrayed a young starlet getting her first taste of fame, ironically just a few years off from reality. Fox is no stranger to men’s magazines like FHM, GQ, and Maxim; FHM voted her “Sexiest Woman in the World” in 2008, along with a lengthy five page cover spread.

For a knockout like Megan Fox, having only one boyfriend in the acting business is unheard of, but she’s never one for predictability. (In an interview with GQ, Fox claimed she fell in love with a female stripper at age 18, but nothing came of attempts to pursue a relationship.) Fox has been with Brian Austin Green of Beverly Hills, 90210, for almost five years, and the two are reportedly still together. She sports nine tattoos, including Green’s name on her hip and a symbol for strength on her neck. She has said of her passion for going under the ink, “I’m not kidding when I say that if I ever lose a role because of my tattoos, I’ll quit Hollywood and go to work at Costco.”

You’ll see Megan next in Jennifer’s Body, with Amanda Seyfried and Adam Brody, slated for release in 2010. And this time, she won’t be just another supporting actress.

Megan’s finally made it to “lead role “status. But, as we secretly suspected, she was going to get there anyway.
