Di Paolo concluded that Fox's criticism of the media sexually objectifying girls and women was in stark contrast to her sex symbol status and that this, "her defiance of director Michael Bay and frequent outspoken comments" stifled her career.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.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.Fox reprised her role in the 2009 sequel, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.She was the voice of Lois Lane in the film Robot Chicken DC Comics Special, an episode of the television comedy series Robot Chicken, and it aired as a one-off special during Cartoon Network's Adult Swim on September 9, 2012.In January 2013, Fox was featured in a Brazilian television commercial for Brahma beer.She began her acting career in 2001, with several minor television and film roles, and played a regular role on the Hope & Faith television sitcom.In 2004, she made her film debut with a role in the teen comedy Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen.
In 2012, Fox appeared briefly in Sacha Baron Cohen's comedy The Dictator and had a featured role in Judd Apatow's comedy This Is 40.
Shia's long held goofy persona as the lovable Louis Stevens is why we've had trouble accepting the actor's descent into bad boy territory over the past 10 years(car crashes, bar fights, and public meltdowns, etc.).
While Shia has many bad boy moments to choose from, we're most interested in the first time he truly set Hollywood ablaze with a VERY juicy scandal involving his co-star, the vivacious Megan Fox.
Fox is considered one of the modern female sex symbols and has appeared in magazines such as Maxim, Rolling Stone and FHM. Fox has spoken extensively of her time in education; that in middle school she was bullied; consequently she ate lunch in the bathroom to avoid being "pelted with ketchup packets".
She attended a dance class at the community center there and was involved in Kingston Elementary School's chorus and the Kingston Clippers swim team. She said that the problem was not her looks, but that she had "always gotten along better with boys" and that "rubbed some people the wrong way".
