Meghan Fox‘s name has been in the news a lot lately. The Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen actress has made headlines not only for her relationship with her Midnight in the Switchgrass co-star Machine Gun Kelly but also for a 2009 interview she did with Jimmy Kimmel that has resurfaced online.
The clip showed Fox talking to the late night host about her audition for Bad Boys II. The actress explained that she had to dance in front of director Michael Bay in a bikini when she was just 15 years old.
Fox concluded her story saying, “That’s kind of a microcosm of how Bay’s mind works.” To which Kimmel replied, “Yeah, well that’s really a microcosm of how all our minds work.”
A number of fans became upset over the revelation and Kimmel’s reaction. After the clip made the rounds, Fox took to Instagram with a lengthy post and said she was “never assaulted or prayed upon” by Bay. She also insisted that for her Transformers role she “was not made to ‘wash’ or work on someone’s cars in a way that was extraneous from the material in the actual script.”
Bey and Kimmel have not commented on the clip.
Megan Fox’s age
Fox was born on May 16, 1986, in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, to parents Gloria Darlene and Franklin Thomas Fox.
By the age of 13, she began modeling but she wanted to get into acting for as long as she can remember.
“I wanted to be an actress from the time I was 2,” Fox told The New York Times. “My mom said it was the only thing I ever said I wanted to do. When I was 4 or 5, I watched The Wizard of Oz, and for a year, I asked her to call me Dorothy. When my mom explained to me that Dorothy was not real, that an actress plays her, I decided I wanted to be an actress.”
Fox’s dating history and marriage
Fox married fellow actor Brian Austin Green in 2010. The pair met in 2004 when she was 18 and he was 30 on the sitcom Hope & Faith and dated on-and-off for years.
“I liked him right away,” Fox told The New York Times Magazine. “Everyone was around the monitor watching a scene, and Brian accidentally touched my leg. I remember literal electricity shooting through me and out me from every direction. It was like magic.”
Fox filed for divorce from Green in 2015, but they got back together and she later requested to dismiss their divorce case. In May 2020, Green announced on an episode of his podcast they had split up. The estranged couple share three children: Bodhi, Noah, and Journey.
While the Jennifer’s Body actress has only been married once another one of her relationships was a hot topic in the past.
After she starred in Transformers with Shia LaBeouf in 2007, rumors swirled that they were romantically involved. Fox finally confirmed their fling in 2018 on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen when she said, “I love [LaBeouf ]. I’ve never been really private about that. I love him.”
In June 2020, rapper Machine Gun Kelly confirmed via Twitter that he was dating Fox.
