There was some controversy surrounding Fox's appearance while filming the sequel when Michael Bay, the film's director, ordered the actress to gain 10 pounds.
Fox was to star in the third installment, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, but was not included because of her statements comparing working under director Bay to working for Hitler.
Fox appeared in seasons 2 to 3, until the show was cancelled by ABC in May 2006.
In 2004, she made her film debut with a role in the teen comedy Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen.
In 2007, she co-starred as Mikaela Banes, the love interest of Shia La Beouf's character, in the blockbuster action film Transformers, which became her breakout role.
Lynn Hirschbergnov of The New York Times opined that "the Jolie comparison would probably have been made by the media eventually, but Fox sped up the process" by "linking herself to Jolie" and that she created an "entertaining copy" by telling "tales of darkness and lust." It also positioned her as a potential role model, and later led to her being typecast.
Before leaving to Hollywood Megan Fox did have a first love.
