Since her engagement to Machine Gun Kelly, fans have wanted to know more about Megan Fox’s net worth and how much she makes compared to her new fiancé and her ex-husband, Brian Austin Green.
Megan’s ex-husband, Brian, announced their separation on May 18, 2020, to his fans in an episode of his podcast, “…Brian Austin Green.” He suggested that the couple were already “trying to sort of be apart” in 2019, and confirmed that he was already familiar with Machine Gun Kelly—Megan’s rumored romance at time. While he understood the pair to just be “friends” at the time, fans spotted Megan and MGK kissing in public. But Brian made clear that he was OK with it: “[I don’t] want people to think that her or he are villains or I was a victim in any way with any of this because I wasn’t. This isn’t something new for us. This is something new for people to experience and hear about in the press and take sides on and judge and critique, but it’s not new for us,” he explained.
Brian and Megan were notoriously on-again, off-again relationship. They met in 2004 on the set of Hope & Faith when Megan was 18 and Brian was 30 and were engaged shortly after in 2006. But the pair broke things off at the time, waiting until June 2010 to reconcile and get married. By 2015, Megan filed for divorce citing “irreconcilable differences,” but ultimately rescinded her request when she became pregnant with their youngest child, Journey. The couple shares two more children, Bodhi and Noah.
It’s also possible that money could have been an issue among those “irreconcilable differences” in 2015. Inquisitr reported in 2013 that Megan and Brian had a strained financial relationship. “It should be the happiest time of Megan’s life, but she is definitely worried about their finances. Megan is constantly complaining about costs for the upkeep for their house, from landscapers and nannies to maids and pool cleaners,” a source told the outlet. “A lot of people may not relate to a Hollywood star’s strained finances, but Megan is genuinely worried that she and Brian are living beyond their means.” Megan and Brian finalized their divorce in October 2021. Three months later, MGK and Megan announced their engagement.
“We asked for magic We were oblivious to the pain we would face together in such a short, frenetic period of time. Unaware of the work and sacrifices the relationship would require from us but intoxicated off of the love. And the karma,” Megan captioned an Instagram video at the time of MGK proposing. “Somehow a year and a half later, having walked through hell together, and having laughed more than I ever imagined possible, he asked me to marry him. And just as in every lifetime before this one, and as in every lifetime that will follow it, I said yes. …and then we drank each other’s blood.”
So how much is Megan Fox’s net worth and what does she make compared to her ex-husband and her new fiancé. Read on for what we know about Megan Fox’s net worth and how much she’s made from projects like Transformers and Jennifer’s Body.
What did Megan Fox make from Transformers?
What did Megan Fox make from the Transformers movies? Megan played Mikaela Banes in two Transformers movies: 2007’s Transformers and 2009’s Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. According to Vulture, Megan made $100,000 for Transformers and $800,000 for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Megan was also set to make $2.2 million for 2011’s Transformers: Dark of the Moon, however, she never filmed the movie after she compared director Michael Bay to Adolf Hitler in an interview with Wonderland in 2009.
“He’s like Napoleon and he wants to create this insane, infamous mad man reputation,” she said. He wants to be like Hitler on his sets, and he is. So he’s a nightmare to work for but when you get him away from set, and he’s not in director mode, I kind of really enjoy his personality because he’s so awkward, so hopelessly awkward. He has no social skills at all. And it’s endearing to watch him. He’s vulnerable and fragile in real life and then on set he’s a tyrant. Shia and I almost die when we make a Transformers movie. He has you do some really insane things that insurance would never let you do.”
In an interview with GQ, Bay revealed that executive producer Steven Spielberg asked him to fire Megan from the Transformers franchise. “She was in a different world, on her BlackBerry. You gotta stay focused. And you know, the Hitler thing. Steven said, ‘Fire her right now,'” he said. “I wasn’t hurt, because I know that’s just Megan. Megan loves to get a response. And she does it in kind of the wrong way. I’m sorry, Megan. I’m sorry I made you work twelve hours. I’m sorry that I’m making you show up on time. Movies are not always warm and fuzzy.”
Megan told Cosmopolitan in 2017 that the firing was the “low point” of her career. “That was absolutely the low point of my career,” she said. “But without – ‘that thing’, I wouldn’t have learned as quickly as I did. All I had to do was apologize – and I refused. I was so self-righteous at 23, I couldn’t see [that] it was for the greater good. I really thought I was Joan of Arc.”
What did Megan Fox make for Jennifer’s Body?
What did Megan Fox make for Jennifer’s Body? Megan starred as Jennifer Check in 2009’s Jennifer’s Body, a comedy horror about a demonically possessed high school student who kills her male classmate. According to Vulture, Megan made $400,000 for Jennifer’s Body.
In an interview on the “History of Horror: Uncut” podcast in 2020, Megan talked about how her drama with Bay affected the negative reviews for Jennifer’s Body at the time. “I was being vilified a little bit when the movie was getting ready for its release, it was that interesting juxtaposition to shooting up to extreme heights of fame right before the movie was released and then … the tearing me down was starting to happen,” she said. “Then I had this immediate fallout with someone I worked in the industry. That happened right when I was on the press tour for Jennifer’s Body. I think it all sort of exploded at once,” she said. “I think people definitely viewed me as negative or having bad intentions or just being really shallow and selfish, if it could be reduced and simplified even to that.”
