Megan Fox Towers Over Manhattan

30 October 2017

Megan Fox returned to New York this month to film scenes for her new movie, "Shadow Girl". As yet there is very little information, if anything about the movie, though scenes are currently being shot in Brooklyn. Previous to this project, Fox has starred in five New York-based movies, first appearing in the 2008 comedy “How to Lose Friends & Alienate People”, a brief appearance in “Friends with Kids”, a cameo role as herself in “The Dictator”, and more famously as April O’Neil in the action, adventure “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” and again two years later in the sequel, “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows”.

Back in April, Lotus unveiled the Hollywood actress as its new brand ambassador for ‘SHINE’ and included her stunning image in their official advertising campaign for Lotus watches and Lotus Style jewellery. Besides the printed magazine adverts, Fox also starred in an television ad, where she was seen larger-than-life, wearing a glistening Lotus branded watch on her left wrist as she walked between the skyscrapers of New York and stretched out in Central Park.

The Transformers actress was also seen strutting in slow-motion along Park Avenue in a silky low-cut pastel pink dress with a neckline low enough to give a glimpse of her medallion pendant, as well as a hem high enough to showcase her flawless legs as she stepped over the Queenboro Bridge, occasionally, pushes back part of her wavy black hair to reveal her earrings.

Megan Fox began her acting career in 2001, with several minor television and film roles, and played a regular role on the “Hope & Faith” television sitcom. In the same year, Fox made her acting debut in the 2001 film “Holiday in the Sun”, as spoiled heiress Brianna Wallace, which was released direct-to-DVD. In 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”.

In 2004, she won a role in the teen comedy “Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen”, whilst three years later, 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 and was nominated for an MTV Movie Award in the category of ‘Breakthrough Performance’, and was also nominated for three Teen Choice Awards.

She had signed on for two more Transformers sequels, reprising her role as Mikaela in “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen”. 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. The film was released worldwide in June 2009. Fox was to star in the third instalment, “Transformers: Dark of the Moon”, but was not included because of her statements comparing working under director Bay to working for Hitler. Bay said in June 2009 that Fox was fired on orders of executive producer Steven Spielberg.

In 2009, Fox had her first lead role since the Transformers series; she portrayed the title character in “Jennifer's Body”, written by Academy Award winning screenwriter Diablo Cody. In the same year, she appeared in the film, “Jonah Hex”, in which she portrayed Leila, a gun-wielding beauty and Jonah Hex's love interest. The film was released in June 2010, and despite receiving top billing, Fox described her role in the film as being a cameo. The film was a critical and commercial failure in the U.S., with its international distribution cancelled after its poor performance.

To follow, Fox starred alongside Mickey Rourke in “Passion Play”, though it quickly became another failure on her list as it received a poor reception at the Toronto Film festival that then led to its conventional theatrical distribution being bypassed for a direct-to-video release, with only two screens briefly showing the film to fulfil contractual obligations.

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”. In January 2013, Fox was featured in a Brazilian television commercial for Brahma beer, and in February, Fox set aside her differences with her former director Michael Bay and worked again with him on his reboot of “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” playing April O’Neil, and reprised the role again in the 2016 film, “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows”.
