Megan Fox devours role as demon-possessed high-schooler
Megan Denise Fox (born May 16, 1986) is an American film and television actress. Fox began her acting career in 2001 with a supporting role as Brianna Wallace in the film Holiday in the Sun. Fox then guest-starred in various television series, including What I Like About You and Two and a Half Men, and played a recurring role on Hope and Faith. In 2004, Fox relaunched her film career starring opposite Lindsay Lohan in Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen, but it was not until 2007 that she had her breakout role as Mikaela Banes, the love interest of Shia LaBeouf’s character in the blockbuster film Transformers, a role for which Fox was nominated and won various Teen Choice Awards. She reprised her role in the sequel, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.
Fox is of Irish, French and Native American ancestry and was born in Oak Ridge, Tennessee to Darlene Tonachio and Franklin Foxx, who dropped an “x” from his surname. She has one older sister. Fox’s parents divorced when she was young and she and her sister were raised by her mother and her stepfather. She said that the two were “very strict” and that she wasn’t allowed to have a boyfriend. She lived with her mother until she made enough money to support herself. Fox has also spoken of how poor she was when she was growing up and how she had to make her own toys.
Fox began her training in drama and dance at age five, in Kingston, Tennessee. She attended a dance class at the community center there and was involved in Kingston Elementary School’s chorus and the Kingston Clippers swim team. When Fox was 13 years old, she began modeling. At 10 years of age, after moving to St. Petersburg, Florida, Fox continued her training. Fox attended Morningside Academy, a private Christian school, for her middle school years and finished her high school education at St. Lucie West Centennial High School, though at 17 she was tested out of school via correspondence.
At 16, Fox made her acting debut in the 2001 film Holiday in the Sun, as spoiled heiress Brianna Wallace and rival of Alex Stewart (Ashley Olsen). The film was released Direct-to-DVD on November 20, 2001. The following year, Fox landed the lead main role as Ione Star on the television series Ocean Ave. The series lasted two seasons, from 2002-2003 and Fox appeared in 122 one-hour-long episodes. Also in 2002, she guest-starred on What I Like About You, appearing in the episode “Like a Virgin (Kinda)”. She was an uncredited extra in Bad Boys II in 2003. In 2004, Fox guest-starred on Two and a Half Men in the episode “Carmel Filters and Pheromones”. In the same year, Fox made her film debut in Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen co-starring opposite Lindsay Lohan, playing the supporting role of Carla Santi, a rival of Lola (Lindsay Lohan). Again in 2004, Fox was cast in regular role on the ABC sitcom Hope & Faith, in which she portrayed Sydney Shanowski, replacing Nicole Paggi in the role. Fox appeared in 36 episodes from seasons 2 to 3, until the show was cancelled in 2006.
Russell Brand’s skeevy enthusiasm during Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards underscored the obvious: Megan Fox is Hollywood’s new screen siren.
The Tennessee native stars in the sexy, violent “Jennifer’s Body,” which opens Friday.
Being a sex symbol, she insisted last week at Toronto’s film festival, where “Jennifer’s Body” premiered, “definitely wasn’t an ambition, it wasn’t a choice. These things happen (because) I was thrown into a movie” – “Transformers” and this summer’s blockbuster sequel – “that made $800 million and that’s responsible for whatever success I’ve come to acquire.”
Now able to draw crowds just by shopping, Fox reflected, “It’s a scary line that you have to walk. If I don’t break out of that (sex symbol) box, I won’t be able to have the career I’m hoping to have. It’s a lot of responsibility to get my (expletive) together.”
In the film, Fox’s Jennifer is a pushy high school senior who dominates her best friend (Amanda Seyfried of “Mamma Mia!”).
The two have a kissing scene, but Fox said no to nudity.
“For me it wouldn’t have been a good decision. I have a permanent no-nudity clause,” she said. “I feel that’s all I have left that is private and that is mine, that can’t be taken by the world. And I don’t feel like sharing it with anyone.”
In the screenplay by Oscar-winning writer Diablo Cody (“Juno”), Jennifer is brutally murdered in a satanic ritual – but she comes back.
“It’s definitely not a horror movie; I call it an irreverent comedy with bizarre horror elements. I don’t know if that’s the right way to describe it,” Fox said.
Jennifer, she added, “is a kid who obviously doesn’t have a healthy family life. She has a mother who’s not present. She has no father. She grew up with a lot of insecurities and this unhealthy friendship” with Seyfried.
“She’s scared and sort of broken. Those usually are the people who are bullies in high school; they’re the most afraid and have the most insecurities. Then she crosses over to the other side. I always felt it was a choice she made to eat boys. That was her revenge, getting back at her father for being gone.”
