The M Match-up

Turtles Fox v Transformers Fox

Megan Fox just loves being in movies where she gets to act against a CGI character. But does she hit it off better with Raphael or Optimus Prime? Is she better as a Turtle lady or a Transformers gal?


CHARACTER POWER

It is rare to see Fox playing a career woman, but in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, she stars as journalist April O'Neil. She is assigned to puff up pieces but stumbles upon the mysterious Turtles doing their crime-fighting thing and decides to get the scoop. She ends up helping them defeat the Foot Clan.

Mikaela Banes was the role that made Fox a star, but it was not much of a role. Mikaela is just a hot student whose hotness is her main thing. Whether leaning over a car engine, running away from robots in slow motion or just staring into space, Fox performed admirably.

ROUND ONE: TURTLE FOX

April is pretty cool.


FAME POWER

These days, Fox seems to be focusing on her marriage to Brian Austin Green, and taking care of her kids Noah Shannon and Bodhi Ransom. She does not appear in many movies, and you rarely see her in the tabloids. I bet there are some teenage boys out there who do not even know what she looks like in a bikini - which is sad.

With the release of the first Transformers movie in 2007, Fox achieved instant fame. Suddenly, she was on the cover of every magazine and her name became synonymous with sex appeal. Unfortunately, her Transformers notoriety started to wane after the disappointment of Jennifer's Body in 2009, and Turtles is her biggest project since then.

ROUND TWO: TRANSFORMERS FOX

Her robot days are halcyonic.


MOUTH POWER

Fox is known for one thing aside from her beauty - her mouth. Motherhood seems to have mellowed her, but she continues to speak her mind. During a recent press conference, she said of Turtle haters: "Those people can complain - they all go to the theatre. They're going to love it, and if they don't love it, they can **** off, and that's the end of that."

Fox's mouth led to her feud with director Michael Bay, which ended with her dismissed from the Transformers franchise. She opened a can of worms when she told UK magazine Wonderland: "He's like Napoleon and he wants to create this insane, infamous madman reputation. He wants to be like Hitler on his sets, and he is... He has no social skills at all."

ROUND THREE: DRAW

This girl never knows when to shut up, and thankfully never will.


AND THE WINNER IS... BOTH FOXES

Transformers Fox was young and beautiful. Turtles Fox is less young but perhaps more beautiful. - Jason Johnson
