Megan Fox and Michael Bay hate each other

July 3rd, 2009 // 107 Comments

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. (Read: There is, and I want an advanced screener. Sans robots.)

    Shia La Beouf should bitch slap her.

  2. Tanzarian

    Shia La Beouf should donkey punch her.

  3. i think both of these shitheads or all of the shitheads in this media industry need to realize theyre all wrong in their thoughts and actions for the betterment of the industry…. meaning MOVIES AND ACTORS/ACTRESSES SUCK ASSSS… wait, that’s too vulgar. i mean, the majority of movies and the people cast to play in them are just the worst. at least the ones that are majorly publicized, such as transformers. they just have the most horrid stroylines, plots, characters, special effects, looks, etc. i am utterly disappointed in the media industry. it’s now full of true trash, from the celebrities right down to the old fucks who think because they’re “wise and older”, they can really produce masterpieces. because guess what? transformers won’t be on the oscar nominations list. i highly doubt that. and i highly doubt in about 15 years, anyone will really be talking about it.

    Not all action / special effects based movies have to be total crap. Think of matrix and terminator 2. Fox has every right to bag Bay’s directing if he churns out mind-numbing story-less garbage.

  6. Dr. John Thomas

    So does Miss Fox consider all of her plastic surgery ‘special effects’ for her body? Seems to me secure, natural beuaties don’t need to resort to going under the knife. Attention whore.

    come on, Ben Affleck was the bomb in Phantoms, Yo

    Armageddon was the worst film i have ever seen in my life!! Seriously??!! And Will Smith, Martin Laurence Nick Cage, they were all super-stars LONG before Micheal Bay came along.

    That being said, I’ve only seen one interview with Megan Fox, and she is a complete arrogant dumbass. Esp. considering that she had all that plastic surgery she thinks “nobody” knows about.

    BTW, Angelina is over-hyped as well. She can’t act, and I personally thought she was TERRIBLE in Girl Interrupted. Nepotism can get you far in Hollywood, no doubt. Just look at Gwyneth Paltrow!

    Michael Bay is just great on the type of movies he does. And guessing from the box-office millions of people agree with me or they wouldn’t go see the movie. And they knew what they were going to see… I don’t think they were fooled by the trailer :P
    If you guys keep saying how bad a director the is then show me your favorite director and how many HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS his movies have made.
    And don’t tell me Transformers doesn’t have story and feelings… there is a love story! It just happens that the robot fights get too much screen time… but that’s what people want to see.

    Just to let you know I’m not an American and we all agree that common TV shows don’t make actors international stars like films do. And sometimes all it takes is ONE successful movie to launch an actor to Big-Star status just what it happened recently to Shia LaBeauf and Megan Fox. Shia has already been casted in other high-profile movies and Megan Fox could follow him as long as she learns to keep her mouth shut and stop biting the hand that fed her.

  13. What a self-important name-dropping ponce. Yeah, no one knew who this Will Smith character was until Bad Boys. Bah.

  14. Fox is a talentless meathead, Hollywood would be better off without her, she should just go and do bottom feeder porn.

  15. Steve

    Can someone post a set of pics of this plastic surgery???

    BTW Mr. Bay…is GAY~ He loves the cock.
    As for Megan – she can love my cock anytime!!!

    He didn’t make anyone famous…these stars were already known when they signed up. Al I need is a handycam and some c-4 and i can be the next big director. whoopty shit michael bay….you are still gay.

    Megan Fox really shouldn’t talk about acting. Of all the people in Transformers, she was the WORST actress. She’s gorgeous (thank you doctors and dentists) but she can’t act!

    Michael Bay’s movies aren’t exactly Oscar-worthy but he’s right about his ability to make people mega celebrities. Even Will Smith said that that one scene in Bad Boys (you know it, the one where he’s running bare-chested to save Martin Lawrence) made his career. Megan Fox should learn some gratitude and probably make amends with Bay, because if she doesn’t, she’s going to be surprised by how many of those doors start closing. No one wants to work with a “difficult” actress, not when there are so many other gorgeous, more talented ones waiting in line.

    And her management knows it! From all the dumb puff pieces coming out about her this weekend, it looks like her people are trying to control the damage. But it’s been done! Well, I guess she’s just not cut out to be a huge celebrity. So much for those ridiculous comparisons with Angelina Jolie.

    I’m already long time used to this but they bite always the hand what feeds them.

    He should bite her back.

    I don’t recall talking about money. It was fame that was being discussed. And anyway, can you prove that Will Smith was not wealthy before Bad Boys? Both were famous BEFORE they did Bad Boys. Especially Will Smith. Fresh Prince was a hit TV show.

    “Even Will Smith said that that one scene in Bad Boys (you know it, the one where he’s running bare-chested to save Martin Lawrence) made his career.”

    …He was probably joking if he ever made that comment. The scene that made his movie career is the bedroom scene in Six Degrees of Separation. People no longer saw him as the goofy rapper/teenager on Fresh Prince after that movie was released.

    The girl isn’t lying as good as Transformers was it had zero fucking plot or acting and there was really no need for human actors at all. So many mistakes and shit that didn’t make any sense. Robots transforming into humans, robot heaven, a stupid spanish guy that wasn’t funny and useless, ghetto robot twins. The movie was a shit show with awesome special effects. I mean its Transformers so what did Megan Fox really expect?

    I say it’s 50/50 Megan Fox is being a bitch and Micahel Bay is retarded.

  33. Rick

    Megan can’t act at all, she’s only well-known for her looks and sex appeal. That’s it. And she has the gall to say that Transformers “focuses on special effects and not acting”. No sh*t, sherlock. Since when was a movie that features huge robots fighting ever classified as a movie that was meant to be taken seriously? Let alone its “acting”. Her immaturity and lack of professionalism on this issue is astounding.

    Bay needs a reality check…Smith and Lawrence were stars before they had even heard of Bay…same with Cage. The guy’s delusional to say the least…at least that explains why he butchered the Transformers like he did. I grew up with Optimus and Bumblebee and the rest…those are pale copies he has on the big screen. I don’t even mean how the car forms changed but the personalities are way out of whack. Bay should be ashamed of taking something great and cheapening it.

  36. The only who say Fox can’t act are the ones who only saw her in the Transformers prequels. How can you deny someone’s talent if you only saw them give 1- 2 performances. Honestly, i think she can be a great actress. She needs to work with a director who will help her hone her acting skills, especially since Bay’s movies are only special effect movies( He said himself in this interview).

    Some movie theatre employees made a music video about Hollywood’s refusal to create original ideas called “The Real Psycho Transformer.”
    I wish I had though of it first.
    Maybe I will do a Motown record about it
