She’s famous for appearing in two of the Transformers movies. But it seems like Megan Fox should be famous for anonymously playing “Halo” all the time on her X-Box. “I have a complete addiction to that game,” Megan told Collider magazine in 2011. “It is sick.” That’s right; the woman voted hottest by FMH readers in 2008 is a huge gamer.
When she’s not pwning some unsuspecting guy, she’s either enjoying downtime with her family (more on that later) or tearing up movie screens everywhere: Transformers, How to Lose Friends and Alienate People, Jennifer’s Body, Jonah Hex, Friends with Kids, This Is 40, and more. Thanks to her surging popularity in the late 2000s, media outlets had a coverage battle over Megan, with several websites boycotting showing images or writing articles about her under the promise of “A Day Without Megan Fox” and others giving her even more play as a result.
After her transition from blow-‘em-up action flicks to more domestic, comedic fare, it’s anyone’s guess what we’ll see her in next—and it sounds like it might even surprise Megan herself, as she leaves the door open to both. “It is nice to go to bed with a smile on your face and then wake up in the morning with a smile on your face,” she told Collider of working on the set of a comedy. “So I like working in this genre of film. I don’t want to only do this. I still like the run-and-gun action movies and how truly dangerous it can be to make these films.”
Megan is married to actor Brian Austin, who she’s been in a relationship with since they met on the set of the sitcom Faith & Hope when she was 18. They have two sons, Noah and Bodhi, in addition to Austin’s son Kassius (from a previous marriage). “People insist on seeing me as a wild child, a bad girl, a naughty girl, and I don’t know why. Because my life is the exact opposite,” she said in an interview with The Daily Mail. “My husband is the sensitive type, he’s not macho. And I’m going to raise our boys like that: sensitive, sweet, chivalrous types.”
