Fox tests the limits of her looks for her role in Diablo Cody’s upcoming 2009 horror movie "Jennifer’s Body," where she plays a woman who is almost dead. "I decided I would turn myself into a zombie. I got super, super skinny, stayed out of the sun for four months, and got to where I was losing my eyelashes and my eyebrows."

Fox and Shia LaBeouf teamed up again in 2009's "Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen."

"'Transformers' made $700 million and that opened a door to introduce this 'new girl,'" Fox tells Entertainment Weekly. "I happened to be such an outrageous personality that people wanted to start writing about me because it was deemed controversial. I think if I had been a typical Hollywood actress and I said all the right things and I had been a publicity android, it wouldn’t have escalated to this level."

If I really buckle down, I think one day I could be a very good actress. But so far, I haven’t done anything yet."

"Hands down, it will win that. But it’s not trying to be a Golden Globe-nominated film. It’s a badass popcorn summer movie."
