M Match-up

Megan Fox v Nicola Peltz 

The first two Transformers flicks made Megan Fox a star, and she helped make the films massively successful. Can new girl and fellow US actress Nicola Peltz possibly compare?

POWER OF PERSONALITY

She played high school student Mikaela Banes, the object of Shia LaBeouf's sweaty dreams. A ballsy hottie with awe-inspiring cleavage, Mikaela was not much of a stretch for Fox.

That unforgettable scene where she is leaning over the car engine is burned into every man's brain for all time.

She also plays a high school girl, a blonde named Tessa Yeager. Unlike Mikaela, Tessa is kind of a nice person. She is a country girl who lives a sheltered life with her daddy (Mark Wahlberg) until Optimus Prime shows up to turn their lives upside down.

Tessa loves her dad, she loves her secret boyfriend and she looks amazing in cut-off jeans.

ROUND ONE: FOX

Peltz is a bit bland while Fox sizzles.


SEXINESS SCORE

One of the inarguable facts of human existence is that Fox, 28, is a world-class babe. She creates lusty feelings in men that they themselves do not quite understand.

The readers of FHM magazine named her the Sexiest Woman In The World in 2008. In 2009, she came in at No. 2 on Maxim's Hot 100 list. There are of course other lists - I have them taped to my bedroom ceiling.

The first time most of us saw Peltz was in 2010's The Last Airbender when she was just a kid in a fur coat.

Suddenly, here she is in short shorts and singlets and it's, like, whoa! Give us some time to adjust, yo.

Her mum Claudia Heffner was a model, so she has great genes. At just 19, she looks fresh as a daisy.

ROUND TWO: FOX

The girl is a once-in-a-generation sex bomb.


CAREER MOVES

Fox seems more into having babies with actor-hubby Brian Austin Green - they already have two sons.

She has made some pretty lame flicks like Jennifer's Body and Passion Play. Her comeback role is the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, a step down from Transformers.

Her biggest credit before Transformers was The Last Airbender and a recurring role on the TV show Bates Motel.

Peltz is at the beginning of her career and there is nothing huge on the horizon as of yet.

ROUND THREE: FOX

Not a great career, but at least it is a career.


THE WINNER: FOX IN A LANDSLIDE

Love her (guys) or hate her (gals), you cannot deny that she made her mark on hollywood. she played the fame game and won big time — while it lasted.
