In 2007, Megan Fox was a rising star in Hollywood, with her breakout role in the hit action film "Transformers." She played Mikaela Banes, the love interest of Shia LaBeouf's character, and her performance quickly garnered attention for both her acting skills and her stunning looks.

Fox quickly became a sex symbol and was featured in numerous magazine spreads and photo shoots, solidifying her status as one of Hollywood's most sought-after actresses. However, she was also criticized for the hypersexualization of her image and for perpetuating harmful beauty standards for women.
