As star-is-born moments go, Megan Fox‘s was a doozy. About 25 minutes into 2007’s Transformers, the curvy sex bomb, dressed in a denim miniskirt and a cropped tank top revealing miles of midriff, leaned over the engine of Shia LaBeouf‘s car.
might have walked in expecting to see the Autobots and Decepticons, but they walked out talking about…that girl. Now the 23-year-old Tennessee native is reprising her role as brassy Mikaela Banes in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (due June 24), and has two more films on the way.
Off screen, she’s graced numerous magazine covers in come-hither poses, unleashing the kinds of provocative quotes that give publicists cardiac infarctions.
Not that that’s shutting her up. When we met up with Fox poolside in Los Angeles last week, she greeted us in a bikini top under a white T-shirt, snug sweatpants, and dark aviator sunglasses.
