This brunette bombshell has been on everyone’s radars (and bedroom walls) for well over a decade. Today, she’s back on our screens as a horror queen in films like Till Death, looking like she hasn’t aged a day. To celebrate this beauty returning to acting, we wanted to take a look back at her most memorable movies of all time.
1. Jennifer’s Body
In this horror movie, the vixen is turned into an immortal succubus who loves to feast on dudes. It all goes down when a satanic ritual goes wrong, and her BFF played by Amanda Seyfried, goes on a mission to stop Jennifer from killing all the boys at their school. It was vastly underrated back when it was released in 2009, but after the #metoo movement, got more of the recognition it deserved.
Besides explosions and action scenes, the main reasons that people ran to watch Transformers was to see the character known as Mikaela Banes, who is depicted by the foxy Fox. In both the original and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Fox and LaBeouf help the Autobots. Even when she’s sweaty and covered in dirt, she still looks like a supermodel.
3. This Is 40
In the sequel to Knocked Up, we got to see Meg flex her creative muscles as Desi, the hilarious escort-slash-retail-worker that goes partying with Leslie Mann, who is experiencing a midlife crisis. It’s one of our favorite Megan Fox movies to date, but that’s partially because of the star-studded supporting cast she had to riff off.
4. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows
Playing the role of April O’Neil, this is another action-filled role of Fox’s. In it, she works alongside Will Arnett, Stephen Amell and the turtles to fight an evil nemesis and a mad scientist who want to hold the world hostage with a lethal formula.
5. How to Lose Friends and Alienate People
Megan starred alongside Simon Pegg in this 2008 comedy, playing Sophie Maes. In the film, Pegg plays Sidney Young, a man trying to establish a good reputation at his new gig for a fashion magazine. Fox plays a supporting role as a celebrity actress, and while the film was criticized for its “slapstick and crude humor”, it still earned plenty of fans.
6. Friends with Kids
In this movie about getting older and making the decision to have kids (or not), couple Jason and Julie without kids feel a mounting pressure to give in and sort families as well. But when they decide to co-parent without being in a romantic relationship, the no-strings-approach soon unravels when they inevitably start to fall in love. Fox just has a passing role in this, but she does a fantastic job in portraying one of Jason’s lovers.
7. Till Death
One of her most recent and best roles in 2021, Megan Fox plays the wife of a man who handcuffs himself to her and shoots himself, leaving her all alone in their country house as two killers arrive to hunt her down. It’s a well-thought-out revenge plot that’s a response to Fox’s infidelity, but what this guy does is significantly worse than an affair.
8. Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen
This Disney flick is one of Fox’s first roles, when she was just a wee baby in the early 2000s. It was by no means a masterpiece or a hit amongst critics, but we did love her playing popular girl Carla Santini, even if it was an airhead role at the end of the day. If anything, it’s a good watch to remind you how far she’s really come.
9. The Battle of Jangsari
Megan strayed from her usual role in The Battle of Jangsari, a film based on the true story of the Korean War, and the diversionary war operation of student soldiers that occurred throughout it. Megan Fox plays American reporter Marguerite Higgins and co-stars alongside Kim Myung-min, who plays guerrilla commander Lee Myung-Joon.
10. Above the Shadows
Playing the role of Juliana in this 2019 supernatural movie, a woman suffering from invisibility assistant a disgraced MMA fighter in winning back his girlfriend, who is played by Megan Fox. While some critics and audience members called the plot ridiculous, the film boasts of her higher Rotten Tomato ratings. At least she’s not afraid to try out all kinds of genres!
