Megan Fox is hot right now in Hollywood, thanks to her leading roles in the blockbuster movie “Transformers” and also the sequel “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” where she was the leading actress portraying action hero Mikaela Banes in the film.
She was born in May 1986 in Tennessee, USA, into a middle-class family; she attended dance and drama classes at the age of five. She continued with her classes and became very confident in her acting ability as time went on. As a teenager she began winning talent and modelling contests but all was not well behind her happy smile.
School was becoming a nightmare as she was constantly bullied and even had to resort to eating her lunch alone in the bathroom to avoid being the target of bullying of both the mental and physical kind.
This ultimately led her having very low self-esteem, feeling vulnerable and no real friends she felt she could rely on.
Regardless of this at age 15, Megan made her acting debut in the film “Holiday in the Sun” and her focus was set on making it in Hollywood.
Even with her success on the big screen Megan’s isolation by the students and bullying at school was taking a toll and grinding away at her self-esteem.
Finally in 2004 at the age of 18 she managed to escape the physical and mental bullying and made her way to Hollywood to pursue her dream of becoming a famous actress. With her years of experience with drama and dance classes behind her and her exceptional good looks Megan was in a good position to succeed in Hollywood.
After having various roles in the hit comedy “Two and a Half Men” and starring in the long running American TV drama “Hope & Faith” she finally hit the jackpot when she was cast in the blockbuster film “Transformers”.
In 2007, at the young age of 21, Megan Fox had arrived as one of the young stars of Hollywood and again in 2009 she starred in the sequel “Transformers Revenge of the Fallen” and lit up the silver screen with her heroics.
Still recovering from the years of bullying at her high school Megan Fox is still a loner in some ways and enjoys spending time alone and won’t go out unless it is required.
In fact Megan says that she enjoys nothing more than being at home and playing computer backgammon or doing pottery, also with a young family in tow she cherishes family time and just being herself.
She has been dating her husband Brian Austin Green since she was 18 and is now married to him and has two children with him, Noah born in September 2012 and Bodhi born in February 2014.
Interestingly, Megan whose husband is 12 years older than her says she has no time for young men in their teens or their 20’s stating that they are immature and a waste of time offering nothing conversationally or intellectually and always felt she had a better shot with real men in their 30’s and above.
Adding fuel to the fire she also has a distrust for women in her industry and says that she doesn’t trust these types of individuals as they are way too competitive and backbiting and she really doesn’t have time for all of that.
Being raised in the Pentecostal Church and also Catholic Church, Megan still has a strong faith and regularly speaks in a very biblical and unique form of language referred to as “Speaking In Tongues” it is believed to be a sacred and little known language amongst Pentecostal followers.
At the age of 27 and married with two sons Megan Fox has achieved so much in such a short space of time; a loving husband, two beautiful children, a sparkling film career, fame and a huge fortune.
My only concern is I hope she manages to fight off the serious demons of being bullied at school which has definitely left a deep mental scar for her to overcome.
