Living in the limelight means having your business out there for the world to see, and Megan Fox is no stranger to this game. Fans know all about her backstory, her most famous romances, and even the work that she’s done in acting and in fashion. It’s a lot of exposure, and few are built to handle a life like this.
What some casual fans may not know is what Fox has been up to since her days on New Girl, as her love life seems to be what dominates headlines these days.
Let’s take a look at the actress, and see what she’s been up to since New Girl!
Megan Fox Was A Series Regular On ‘New Girl’
In 2016, Megan Fox surprised fans by joining the cast of the popular sitcom, New Girl. The show was already a hit, but adding Fox proved to be a smart move for the sitcom.
When dishing on her character prior to her debut, Fox said, “Reagan is a pharmaceutical rep so she travels a lot and her company is putting her up at a really terrible hotel.”
Fox was a key part of the show for 15 episodes, leaving a permanent impression on fans.
Eventually, however, her time on the show reached a natural conclusion.
According to ScreenRant, “New Girl’s Reagan Lucas was essential for the development of the other characters, and Megan Fox didn’t leave due to anything other than her character’s story running its course in season 6. Her character chose to take a cushy job elsewhere – her dream job – which meant she didn’t exit on a bad note.”
Since her time on the show ended, Fox has made sure to stay busy.
Megan Fox Has Appeared In Movies Like ‘Zeroville’
Shifting to the big screen, Fox, who has previously found success there prior to joining the cast of New Girl, has once again been taking part in intriguing projects.
Since New Girl, the actress has been in movies like Above the Shadows, Zeroville, Rogue, Night Teeth, and more.
Zeroville was a project of note, as it was a James Franco film that was a “proto-punk Forrest Gump goes to 1970’s Hollywood,” per Deadline.
The cast featured massive names like “Seth Rogen, Megan Fox, Danny McBride, Dave Franco, Craig Robinson, Joey King, and Horatio Sanz,” the site reported, and there was some initial hype surrounding this film.
When it was all said and done, the movie was not well-received by critics, and it failed to do anything of note in the financial department. Because of this, it’s largely forgotten about.
Thankfully, Fox is more than just a film actress, and you had better believe that she didn’t stray too terribly far from TV after finishing up her stint on New Girl.
Megan Fox Has Also Seen A Change In Her Role On TV And Personal Life
In 2018, Fox returned to TV with Legends of the Lost, a short-lived docu-series that saw her trekking the globe asking and attempting to answer questions about ancient civilizations. It was not a major hit upon release, and the series was only able to remain on the travel channel for a single four-episode season.
Now, if we are going to dish on what Megan Fox has been up to since New Girl, then there is simply no way we can ignore her high-profile relationship with musician Machine Gun Kelly.
In 2020, it was reported that, “Fox, 34, and Kelly, 30, met earlier this year on the set of the upcoming indie thriller Midnight In The Switchgrass. Deadline reported that the film’s production in Puerto Rico shut down after two weeks due to the coronavirus pandemic.
A source told E! News that the co-stars had “been hanging out a lot since their movie was shutdown,” adding, “The down time has been good for them…They are intrigued by each other and having a lot of fun,'” per Elle.
Since then, the duo has consistently found ways to stay in the spotlight with one another, even if it’s meant making people uncomfortable.
At this time, Fox has a number of projects lined up on her IMDb page, meaning that we will see her back in projects in no time at all. Needless to say, her fans are anxious to see her back in major projects that will once again show what she can do while the cameras are rolling.
