"But I'm also a hypocrite: I would never date a girl who was bisexual, because that means they also sleep with men, and men are so dirty that I'd never want to sleep with a girl who had slept with a man." Chris Lee of the Los Angeles Times called Fox a "sex symbol of the highest order" and added that she is "a woman whose hotness has become emblematic of a specific era.
Call Megan Fox the first bona fide sex symbol of the 21st century." Scholar Marc Di Paolo stated that Fox achieved instant fame as Mikaela in Transformers because a "highly sexualized, erotically idealized figure draped over a car or motorcycle invariably evokes lust in the heterosexual male onlooker" and Fox did this by "merely leaning low over the hood of a yellow Camaro wearing a flimsy pink belly shirt and impossibly short denim skirt".
Fox was also cast in a regular role on the ABC sitcom Hope & Faith, in which she portrayed Sydney Shanowski, replacing Nicole Paggi.
Fox appeared in seasons 2 to 3, until the show was cancelled by ABC in May 2006.
Bay said in June 2009 that Fox was fired on orders of executive producer Steven Spielberg, Fox starred alongside Mickey Rourke in Passion Play.
The film's poor reception at the Toronto Film festival led to its conventional theatrical distribution being bypassed for a direct-to-video release, with only two screens briefly showing the film to fulfill contractual obligations.
In 2014, Fox starred as April O'Neil in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and reprised the role in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows (2016).
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".
and that the perception of her as a "wild and crazy sexpot" is false because she is asocial and has only been sexually intimate with her "childhood sweetheart" and Brian Austin Green; she stated that she would rather stay at home instead of going out, "I have no question in my mind about being bisexual," Fox stated.
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".
Fox also said of high school that she was never popular and that "everyone hated me, and I was a total outcast, my friends were always guys, I have a very aggressive personality, and girls didn’t like me for that. In the same interview, she mentions that she hated school and has "never been a big believer in formal education" and that "the education I was getting seemed irrelevant. At 15, Fox made her acting debut in the 2001 film Holiday in the Sun, as spoiled heiress Brianna Wallace and rival of Alex Stewart (Ashley Olsen), which was released direct-to-DVD on November 20, 2001.
