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.
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.
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.
Later in 2009, she starred as the eponymous lead in the black comedy horror film Jennifer's Body.
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.
From age 14-17 Megan had her first serious boyfriend Ben Leahy, a firefighter in Florida. They dated for 3 years until she left to pursue her dreams. They had a wonderful relationship; they were lovers and best friends.
Megan was very fun to be with she was a tomboy that liked to hang around her boyfriends’ friends and do things like play basketball , go surfing or go fishing together.
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.
