Today, people the world over knows Megan Fox for her role in the Transformers series. However, few would have recognized the star in her debut appearance as Ashley Olsen’s love rival in 2001’s Holiday in the Sun.

During her 2018 appearance on Watch What Happens Live, the actress was asked which of the twins she preferred. Fox told host Andy Cohen, “I mean, I think I like Mary-Kate better. I felt like maybe she was a little more open with me at that time.”
