Megan Fox proved to have a promising career leading up to her blockbuster role in Transformers, having starred in the Olsen twin film Holiday in the Sun and Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen alongside Lindsay Lohan.
So, it’s no surprise she became a breakout star while playing Mikaela opposite Shia LaBeouf in 2007.
“I don’t think any of us knew how big Transformers was gonna be — we had no idea,” the star said about her rise to fame during a 2011 interview with The Hollywood Reporter. “It’s not like all of a sudden I had become an actress; I was just all of a sudden a celebrity,” she explained. Megan knew she had a passion for performing ever since she was a child.
Even though fans couldn’t stop fawning over her good looks, the star said she was “never the beautiful” or “popular” girl at school.
As she paved her way in Hollywood, Megan landed other roles like Jennifer’s Body, Jonah Hex, This Is 40 and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The Tennessee born star showed off her range as an actress in horror flicks and comedies, making her even more versatile.
Along the way, she married actor Brian Austin Green and they welcomed three kids together, Noah, Bodhi and Journey. The couple later split in May 2020 with Megan officially filing for divorce six months later. Despite filing paperwork again in October 2021 to finalize their divorce, it has yet to be completed due to a clerical error.
These days, she’s happier than ever with new fiancé Machine Gun Kelly (real name: Colson Baker), whom she grew close with on the set of their film, Midnight in the Switchgrass.
MGK and Megan announced their engagement on January 12, 2022, revealing he popped the question one day before under a banyan tree.
The soon-to-be wedded couple previously showed up and showed out at the 2021 MTV Video Music Awards in September, where she and pal Kourtney Kardashian called their respective boyfriends, MGK and Travis Barker, their future “baby daddies” before welcoming the rockers to the stage for a performance of their hit “Papercuts.”
More recently, Megan unveiled a daring platinum blonde ‘do in a selfie for her upcoming role in Johnny & Clyde. “This is what the devil’s daughter looks like,” she teased about her upcoming thriller flick.
