10 Things You Didn't Know About Megan Fox

Yes: she thinks she's hot, too.

The general opinion regarding the downright stunning (and opinion-dividing) Megan Fox seems to be: "She amazingly hot, but she can't act to save her life." And whilst it's true that Fox hasn't exactly tried to push the boat out with regards to her acting roles (she seems content to play "the hot character" in absolutely everything), she's good at what she does. Fox shot to fame, you'll remember, when Michael Bay cast her as Shia LaBeouf's sexy companion in the first Transformers movie - a motion picture that mostly consisted of leering shots that served to emphasise Fox's body, like the one where she's bent over fixing that car in a short denim skirt. And then sequel Revenge of the Fallen had Fox bent over a motorcycle in a pair of denim shorts, the camera intentionally fixated on her behind. Which is to say, Michael Bay clearly hired Fox for one purpose - and he wasn't at all subtle about letting people know said purpose. Despite the fact that Fox was - at one time - the most desirable female on the planet, though (she has topped countless "Sexiest Human Being To Have Ever Lived" polls), she's felt noticeably absent in recent years. In 2013, she didn't appear in a single movie, and in 2014 she turned up in just one. But she will return at some point in 2015 with Zeroville, a movie directed by James Franco. To celebrate the fact that, yay, Megan Fox hasn't vanished off the face of the Earth forever, here are 10 things you might not know about the former Transformers heroine...
