At 10 years of age, after moving to St. Petersburg, Florida, Fox continued her training.

Fox is considered a sex symbol and frequently appears on men’s magazine “Hot” lists, including Maxim and FHM.In 2004, she began dating Brian Austin Green, of Beverly Hills, 90210 fame, after reportedly having met on the set of Hope & Faith. They were involved in an on-again, off-again relationship, before marrying in June 2010

Fox reprised her role as Mikaela Banes in the Transformer sequel, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. There was some controversy surrounding Fox’s appearance while filming the sequel of Transformers when Michael Bay, the film’s director, ordered the actress to gain 10 pounds.[26] The film was released worldwide on June 24, 2009. 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 (see below). Co-star Shia LaBeouf said, “Criticism is one thing. Then there’s public name-calling, which turns into high-school bashing. Which you can’t do.”[28] Bay similarly amended his previous statements of support of Fox, and told GQ in June that Fox was fired on orders of executive producer Stephen Spielberg.
