Every week, we send someone stumbling into the dark Maxim archives to see what we were up to way back when. This week we're going back to July of 2007, when Megan Fox was starring in Transformers, John Leguizamo was in movies we actually watched, and Jessica Biel was still on the market.
Cover Girl: Megan Fox
Where You've Seen Her: When the classic toy line-turned-comic book series Transformers debuted on the big screen, a sexy whirlwind hit Hollywood in the form of Megan Fox: a Southern beauty that made every man with a pulse weak in the knees. Known for her trademark pouty lips, smoldering eyes, and all-around badass attitude, the actress made a name for herself almost instantly. She also blew our minds as a sexy possessed high school girl with her role in Jennifer's Body, in which she starred alongside Amanda Seyfried.
Where She Is Now: Despite our endless attempts to convince Megan to date us, she married Beverly Hills 90210 star Brian Austin Green (don't worry about whether she was even alive when that show was on). Currently pregnant with their second child, the starlet hasn't been in too many feature films since she donned our cover at the age of 21, but we are looking forward to her role as April O'Neil in next year's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles feature film.
24 Hours to Live: John Leguizamo
By 2007, comedian John Leguizamo had starred alongside Leonardo DiCaprio, Nicole Kidman, and Arnold Schwarzenegger, giving him a ridiculously impressive resume and a reason to watch him on-screen. While the actor continues to pop out new films, including Kick-Ass 2 and Ice Age (yes, we saw it, and it was awesome), some of his more recent movies (like One for the Money and Fugly!) weren't quite so well-received. But with seven projects due out within the next year, we smell a mega-comeback.
Female Gun Show: Jessica Biel
We've never steered away from a hot girl in a bikini (has anyone?), especially when the girl donning that flimsy two-piece is actress Jessica Biel. With her long, lean, and tanned limbs and the biggest smile we've ever seen on a human, we were seriously smitten with the actress as soon as we saw her. Back in '07, Biel was fresh off the teenage drama 7th Heaven and playing Adam Sandler's love interest in I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry; she has since been pronounced wife of Justin Timberlake - basically the one guy we know we can't compete with. Lucky for us, at least there are plenty of other fish in the sea.
