The actress is already stepmom to nine-year-old Kassius. The Transformers star who married actor Brian Austin Green in June 2010, said that caring for his son from a previous relationship with Vanessa Marcil brings her joy.

"A lot of things make me happy. But I feel unbelievably happy when my nine-year-old stepson tells me I'm beautiful. Kassius is one of the most beautiful things about my life. When I started living with Brian, his son was only two and I was 18. But ever since I've felt like we've created this family together. I've basically been looking after Kassius since he was three and that's part of my world that very few people really ever understood about me. I love being a stepmom and I feel that the experience grounds me when nothing else makes sense in my life," she had said in an interview.

Megan started her body ink collection when she was just 19, but has since changed her mind about some of the artwork. She removed a portrait of Marilyn Monroe from her right forearm in a bid to avoid attracting negative energy.

"I'm removing it. It is a negative character, as she suffered from personality disorders and was bipolar. I do not want to attract this kind of negative energy in my life," she had said.

However the actress could not live up to expectations in her next two films. Both How to Lose Friends & Alienate People (June 2007), alongside Jeff Bridges, Simon Pegg and Kirsten Dunst, and Whore (October 2008) alongside Rumer Willis did not do well at the box-office.

Then came the dud called Jennifer's Body (2009). Despite Megan's delectable presence, the film about a demonic cheerleader Jennifer Check feeding off the boys in a Minnesota farming town, failed to get moviegoers excited. Jonah Hex, released in June 2010, has not helped Megan make any inroads as a commercially successful filmstar.

Megan has certainly had her share of disagreement with the Transformer director, lashing out at him in interviews. "He's like Napoleon and he wants to create this insane, infamous mad-man reputation. He wants to be like Hitler on his sets, and he is. So he's a nightmare to work for but when you get him away from set, and he's not in director mode, I kind of really enjoy his personality because he's so awkward, so hopelessly awkward," Wonderland Magazine quoted her as saying in its September /October 2009 issue.

Megan was also quoted as saying that she would like to play lesbian superhero Rainmaker from comic book series Gen 13. "I don't want people to protest this, but I would like to be Sarah Rainmaker in Gen 13 if they ever made that into a movie. She's a Native American and I have a little bit of that blood in me. It would be a bit of a stretch. Rainmaker has the ability to manipulate the weather and the movement of water, and in the second issue of the series was revealed as a gay woman," she said.

After Megan's infamous interview in which she attacked her Transformers director Michael Bay as 'Hitler' on the sets, an open letter from unnamed Transformers crew members surfaced on the internet calling the actress 'dumb' and 'ungracious' among other things. Megan, the letter claimed, "shows little interest in the crew members around her. We work to make her look good in every way, but she's absolutely never appreciative of anyone's hard work."
