What is Megan Fox's net worth?

Megan Fox is an American actress and model who has a net worth of $8 million. Megan Fox made her film debut in 2004 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 LaBeouf's character, in the blockbuster action film "Transformers," which became her breakout role.

Megan Fox was everywhere for a hot minute. Touted as the new Angelina Jolie, the beautiful actress appeared in a string of high-profile movies on the cover of multiple magazines, and it was nearly impossible to turn on the television or go online without seeing yet another story about her.  She was the "It Girl" in Hollywood, and though she had been appearing on television since the early 2000's, it was her performance in, "Transformers" in 2007 that finally made people stand up and take notice.  The next few years were golden, and she became a household name worldwide.  Then came her firing from the "Transformers" franchise and the one-two punch of "Jonah Hex" and "Passion Play," the worst-reviewed films of 2010 and 2011, respectively, and suddenly, Ms. Fox's star was not quite so shiny anymore. In recent years, she has made headlines for her relationship with rapper Machine Gun Kelly.

Megan Denise Fox was born in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, on May 16, 1986. Her parents divorced when she was three. Her mother remarried years later, and Fox and her sister were raised by her mother and her stepfather, Tony Tonachio. She was raised Pentecostal but attended Catholic school for 12 years.

Megan Fox landed her first notable role-playing antagonist to Ashley Olsen in the November 2001 direct-to-DVD movie "Holiday in the Sun." Over the next several years, she guest-starred on "What I Like About You" and "Two and a Half Men," as well as being an uncredited extra in "Bad Boys II" (2003).

After a smattering of small roles and guest appearances, Fox made her big-screen debut playing opposite Lindsay Lohan in "Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen." The next two years saw Fox in seasons two and three of the television sitcom "Hope and Faith."

In 2007, Fox received her big break in the blockbuster smash-hit "Transformers" alongside Shia LaBeouf, a movie that grossed $709.7 million worldwide. Fox returned for the 2009 "Transformers" sequel, another record-breaking box-office hit that surpassed its predecessor's gross earnings at $835.2 million.

Also in 2009, Fox starred as the title character and lead in Academy-Award-winning writer Diablo Cody's tongue-in-cheek horror, "Jennifer's Body."

Personal Life

Megan Fox met former "Beverly Hills, 90210" star Brian Austin Green in 2004 on the set of "Hope & Faith." She was 18, he was 30. They got engaged in November 2006. In February 2009, they broke off their engagement. Fox and Green got engaged again on June 1, 2010, and married a few weeks later on June 24th on Maui.

She filed for divorce in August 2015. They got back together by early 2016. In the spring of 2019, Fox filed to dismiss the divorce. Fox and Green broke up again in early 2020. They have three sons.

In the summer of 2020, Megan Fox began dating Machine Gun Kelly. In January 2022, they announced their engagement.

In 2009, Fox was targeted by the criminals known as The Bling Ring. The fashion-motivated robbers broke into Green's house to steal her possessions.

Chris Lee of the Los Angeles Times called Fox a "sex symbol of the highest order" and said she was "the first bona fide sex symbol of the 21st century." Craig Flaster of MTV stated, "Transformers broke Fox into the mainstream, immediately turning her into a household name and international sex symbol." At the time, Fox took issue with the perception of her as a "wild and crazy sexpot" because she considered herself asocial, didn't trust or like men in general, and at that time had only been sexually active with her childhood sweetheart and Brian Austin Green.

Fox's physical beauty has earned her several domestic and international magazine covers, including Maxim, FHM (United Kingdom), Cosmo Girl, Jack (Italy), and the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue in 2023. Famous for her brassy, no-holds-barred personality, Megan Fox continues to prove that she isn't just another pretty face passing through Hollywood.
