Her breakout role came as Mikaela Banes in "Transformers," which she reprised in its sequel, "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen." She also played the titular character in "Jennifer's Body" and starred as April O'Neil in "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" and its sequel "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" Out of the Shadows."

Fox also starred as Reagan Lucas in the fifth and sixth seasons of "New Girl." Described as a sex symbol, she's appeared on several magazine covers like Rolling Stone, Maxim, and FHM. She's the recipient of several accolades, including four Teen Choice Awards and two Scream Awards. Fox was born in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, spending her early childhood in nearby Rockwood. Fox described her parents as "very strict," saying she wasn't allowed to invite friends to the house or have a boyfriend. In an interview, she shared that she developed an eating disorder in her teens and struggled with manic depression.

She lived with her mother until she had enough money to support herself. Fox started her training in drama and dance in Kingston, Tennessee, attending dance class at the community center there and was involved in Kingston Elementary School's chorus and the Kingston Clippers swim team. When she was 10, her family moved to St. Petersburg, Florida, but Fox continued her training. At 13, she started modeling after winning several awards at the 1999 American Modeling and Talent Convention in Hilton Head, South Carolina. At 17, Fox tested out of school via correspondence to move to Los Angeles, California.

What religion is Megan Fox?

Fox was raised "very strictly Pentecostal" but later attended Catholic school for 12 years. In an interview with Esquire Magazine, Fox said her Christian faith is essential to her, and she thinks it keeps her grounded. She also described an incident where she started speaking in tongues at eight in her church. Fox said, "It feels like a lot of energy coming through the top of your head. I'm going to sound like such a lunatic - and then your whole body is filled with this electric current.

Fox continued, "And you just start speaking, but you're not thinking because you have no idea what you're saying. Words are coming out of your mouth, and you can't control it. The idea is that it's a language that only God understands. It's the language that's spoken in heaven. It's called 'getting the Holy Ghost.'"
