The Unveiled Secrets: Delving into the Untold Truths of Megan Fox’s Journey

Megan Fox became a household name thanks to a huge summer blockbuster. Director Michael Bay turned a childrenโ€™s toy into a widely popular movie franchise โ€” with six โ€œTransformersโ€ films as of 2021. Bay called on Shia LaBeouf to play the main male star in the 2007 original. And for the female lead, Megan Fox. In 2009, she returned for the sequel โ€œTransformers: Revenge of the Fallen,โ€ and that same year, she starred in the campy horror film โ€œJenniferโ€™s Body.โ€

In addition to her acting skills, Fox was a sensation for her looks. โ€œBy 2009, Megan Fox was not just a Sั”x symbol, she was the Sั”x symbol โ€” a universal barometer of Hเนฯ„ness,โ€ The New York Times wrote in 2020. But Fox also caused controversy and sometimes found it difficult to navigate her increasing fame. โ€œAt some point, no matter how high the pedestal that they put you on, theyโ€™re going to tear you down. And I created a character,โ€ she told The New York Times in 2009.

For those who get to know Fox, behind the pretty face is a complex woman. โ€œThe reality is, Iโ€™m hidden amongst all the insanity. Nobody can find me,โ€ she said in the aforementioned interview with the Times. That said, one can find some of the pieces that make up her unique story. Here is the untold truth of Megan Fox.

Inside Megan Foxโ€™s childhood

Megan Fox follows the classic celebrity timeline of starting off in a small town to find her way into Hollywood. She told GQ that her hometown of Rockwood, Tennessee, was โ€œa semi-mountain town, very rural.โ€ The actor remembered her โ€œdad used to hunt ducks and my mom would put them in the pot.โ€ This was just one example of her humble roots. โ€œWe lived really modestly. We had very little money,โ€ she said. Fox also grew up with a significantly older sister. At the age of ten, Fox moved to Florida after her father and mother divorced.

As a kid, she spent some of her free time performing. Fox practiced โ€œballet for much of her childhood,โ€ according to The New York Times. And when she wasnโ€™t in the dance studio, she would show off her talent at home. Though Fox said her drive as a child wasnโ€™t the need to perform, she did admit to GQ, โ€œI just always wanted everyoneโ€™s attention to be focused on me.โ€ But she didnโ€™t spend much time with other kids her age, with GQ noting that she wasnโ€™t allowed to hang out with friends outside of school. Even though she remembered missing her father, she was โ€œrelatively happyโ€ throughout her childhood.

Megan Fox had a difficult time as a young actor

Before she became known as one of the Sั”xiest women in Hollywood, Megan Fox started on a more family-friendly path. After appearing in the 2001 movie โ€œHoliday in the Sunโ€ starring the Olsen twins, Fox flew out to Los Angeles from Florida to try her chance at acting. Fox and her mother stayed in โ€œa huge apartment complex in Burbank that caters specifically to child performersโ€ while auditioning for TV pilot episodes, according to GQ. Fox remembered the experience as both โ€œhorribleโ€ and โ€œtragic.โ€ But her plan paid off and she appeared alongside Lindsay Lohan in the 2004 Disney film โ€œConfessions of a Teenage Drama Queen.โ€

The actor then landed a role in TV, except on the opposite coast: Fox scored a gig on the sitcom โ€œHope & Faith,โ€ which filmed in New York. As she recounted to the outlet, she lived on the Lower East Side in a โ€œtiny apartmentโ€ when she was 18. And while it may sound glamorous to reside in the Big Apple while appearing on TV, her experience wasnโ€™t quite that. โ€œI was really isolated. I never went out. I had no friends,โ€ she confessed to GQ. โ€œI was just on my own in the apartment the whole time.โ€ In fact, she became so unmotivated that it became difficult to take care of herself. According to the actor, โ€œI ran out of food. I ran out of water. I ran out of everything.โ€

The mysterious side of Megan Fox

In her film โ€œJenniferโ€™s Body,โ€ Megan Fox plays the ั‚ฮนั‚ular character, a โ€œdemon who has to eat boys to remain beautiful,โ€ as The New York Times recapped. And while the premise is clearly fictional, it may not be so far out there for Fox. The actor admitted that she believes in paranormal activity. In an interview for the AP, Fox talked about a constant โ€œfeeling I donโ€™t belong to anything โ€” even to the world.โ€ And she added that becoming famous only increased this feeling of separation to others. Fox admitted, โ€œIโ€™m one of those people who thinks, if aliens are real, when they come back to earth Iโ€™m one of the humans theyโ€™ll contact. Itโ€™s me โ€” I know itโ€™s gonna be me.โ€

Fox shared similar theories while talking to the Los Angeles Times. โ€œIโ€™ve always been into alternative history, antiquities, archaeology,โ€ she revealed before clarifying that itโ€™s the inexplicable aspects of history that most intrigue her. She said, โ€œIโ€™ve always been really consumed by these deep mysteries,โ€ which โ€œeat away at me.โ€ Fox said her fascination began while filming โ€œTransformers: Revenge of the Fallenโ€ in Egypt. During a tour of the Great Pyramid of Giza, her guide allegedly said โ€œthat the pyramid was never actually a tomb.โ€ According to the actor, she believes the site was originally an โ€œenergy plant at some pointโ€ and that โ€œthe sarcophagus that is in the Great Pyramid was put there by the government for tourism.โ€

Megan Foxโ€™s first romances

Prior to moving to Hollywood and becoming a famous actor, Megan Fox was a teenager in love. As she recalled in an interview with Rolling Stone, she was in a relationship with high school sweetheart Ben Leahy and โ€œshe would sneak out of the house at night and go lie in the grแด€ss with Ben, looking at the stars.โ€ The actor said of her former boyfriend, โ€œI loved him.โ€ And she detailed all the things that made her drawn towards Leahy: โ€œHe was very sweet and wonderful, really tall and big with a perfect body, and he was a badแด€ss. I was totally drawn to him.โ€

After relocating from Florida to the west coast to pursue acting, Fox found herself in a relationship with David Gallagher, the teen heartthrob from the TV series โ€œ7th Heaven.โ€ Once again, Fox was completely enamored with her guy. โ€œThis was my first real, real boyfriend if you know what I mean,โ€ she said in Allure. She revealed that the two were together for over a year and it was the first time in a relationship where she โ€œwas allowed to stay at his house, and get involved like that.โ€ In fact, things became serious quickly for Fox and she said of Gallagher, โ€œI thought I was in love with him.โ€ Looking back, Fox said her emotions were all over the place in that time of her life. โ€œI was such a lost little girl at that moment,โ€ she shared.

The story of Megan Fox and Brian Austin Greenโ€™s relationship

As a young actor, Megan Fox was living in New York and working on the sitcom โ€œHope & Faith.โ€ Her life changed in a big way in 2004 when the actor Brian Austin Green โ€” known for his role on โ€œBeverly Hills, 90210โ€ โ€” came on the show as a guest star. In an interview for Allure, Fox recalled seeing her future husband for the first time. โ€œAfter we were done shooting that day, Brian gave his number out to everyone,โ€ she said. And Fox made the first move. โ€œSo I called him,โ€ she revealed. The two clicked and started to see each other romantically, and Fox connected with his child from a previous relationship, Kแด€ssius. She told Allure that Kแด€ssius was โ€œthe only person I enjoy cooking for. I like arranging it on his little plate.โ€

It sounds like Fox was attracted to Green immediately. Chatting with Allure interview, she called Green โ€œgorgeous. Heโ€™s always been Hเนฯ„.โ€ She said of all her time in Hollywood and meeting many other attractive guys still couldnโ€™t change her mind on Green. According to Fox, he is โ€œthe most attractive manโ€ and is โ€œphenomenal.โ€

The two wed in Hawaii in 2010. Fox and Green had three children together, and in 2020, TMZ reported they filed for divorce.
