The Stunning Transformation Of Megan Fox
Lifestyle - News
Megan Fox knew that she was meant to be in the acting world, telling The New York Times, "When I was 4 or 5, I watched The Wizard of Oz, and for a year, I asked [my mom] to call me Dorothy." She continued, "When my mom explained to me that Dorothy was not real, that an actress plays her, I decided I wanted to be an actress."
Bathroom Lunches
Fox had a clear vision for her future, but she struggled with bullying in middle school and had to eat her lunch in the restroom to avoid her classmates. Years later, she tells to Elle, "I think, for me, what was intimidating was that I've always gotten along better with boys...That rubbed some people the wrong way."
Cast as the Mean Girl
Fox landed her first part in the Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen movie, "Holiday in the Sun," and then a few years later, she earned a role in the film "Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen." She spoke about her acting experience with The New York Times, saying, "I played the b*tch, of course...I was always cast as the b*tch."
Internal Issues
Fox may have wanted to be an actress since she could walk and discuss success at a young age, but she learned quickly that fame was the last thing she wanted. Fox told GQ, "I felt like, once I achieved that success then all of my internal issues would be solved and I would be this really confident person. And I'm not."
Age Gap
Fox met actor Brian Austin Green while filming the TV show "Hope & Faith" in 2004, telling Elle, "I was like, Oh my God, I have to be with you." The only problem was that Fox was only 18 and Green was 30, so she "had to convince him" that their age difference wasn't a big deal.
