While there many people who were surprised
to see that the metallic Transformers
flick was 'more than meets the eye', it was more than just the special
effects that had people talking.
It was the film's sexy young

at the age of ten when here family was forced to move to Florida.
to keep going, Fox continued her training and at the age of 13 broke
into the business with a series of modeling jobs - taking home a slew
of awards in the process. This, of course, led to Hollywood where the
