While Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen dominates the box office to no one’s surprise, Megan Fox and Michael Bay are trading barbs in the press after she recently shit on the film because it focused on special effects and not acting. Bay had the following to say to the Wall Street Journal:
Well, that’s Megan Fox for you. She says some very ridiculous things because she’s 23 years old and she still has a lot of growing to do. You roll your eyes when you see statements like that and think, “Okay Megan, you can do whatever you want. I got it.” But I 100% disagree with her. Nick Cage wasn’t a big actor when I cast him, nor was Ben Affleck before I put him in “Armageddon.” Shia LaBeouf wasn’t a big movie star before he did “Transformers”–and then he exploded. Not to mention Will Smith and Martin Lawrence, from “Bad Boys.” Nobody in the world knew about Megan Fox until I found her and put her in “Transformers.” I like to think that I’ve had some luck in building actors’ careers with my films.
Here’s an easy compromise that should appease both parties: In the third film, simply have all the robots recite Shakespeare, and Megan Fox go full frontal for 98% of the running time. Which, for the Academy’s consideration, should be no less than five hours and 52 minutes. SHAZAM! Movie magic. No need to thank me, Dreamworks. I’m just a man who enjoys fine cinema.
