Shia LaBeouf Calls Megan Fox A "Spice Girl" And Michael Bay "Lascivious"

Hell, he can say whatever he wants. He's finished out a trilogy! What does he care?

When Transformers 3 premieres this summer, one very pretty face is going to be missing that was adored in the first two films: Megan Fox. We all know the story - Foxy took issue with Michael Bay's, shall we say, "directing style." She opened her mouth about it and BOOM, she was replaced.

No one knows the story better than those who were on the inside of the action when it happened, and no one was closer to Michael and Megan than fellow star, Shia LaBeouf. In a recent interview, Shia opened his mouth as well about Michael's directing, but we don't think enough to get him canned…maybe. Of the feud between Foxy and Bay, Shia said:

"Megan developed this Spice Girl strength, this woman-empowerment [stuff] that made her feel awkward about her involvement with Michael, who some people think is a very lascivious filmmaker, the way he films women. Mike films women in a way that appeals to a 16-year-old sexuality. It's summer. It's Michael's style. And I think [Fox] never got comfortable with it. This is a girl who was taken from complete obscurity and placed in a sex-driven role in front of the whole world and told she was the sexiest woman in America. And she had a hard time accepting it…When Mike would ask her to do specific things, there was no time for fluffy talk. We're on the run. And the one thing Mike lacks is tact. There's no time for [LaBeouf assumes a gentle voice] 'I would like you to just arch your back 70 degrees.'"

Moral of the story: Do what the director tells you, when he tells you or BYE!

Fair? No. Hollywood? Yes. But honestly, we don't think Foxy loses much sleep over this anymore. It's over. It's done. And, she's got like 100 other movies lined up. She's totally fine.

But, hmm. Wonder how Michael feels about Shia saying he lacks "tact"? What will be his non-tactful response to that???

    He's put it very well here.



  2. 2

    Yeah, she's got 100 other movies lined up that no one will see. She alienated half of the country with her rude comments about middle America.



  3. 3

    Megan's replacement, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, is truly stunning.



  4. 4

    His comments were very diplomatic and honest. If you are hired for you looks, tits, and ass- then don't get mad when that's all your character is about. Bay is all about big explosions, big boobs, and a pencil thin plot.

    And Megan has something to worry about. She may have projects lined up but none of her recent projects have been successful. Bless her heart.

    not the smartest or most professional move to speak about michael bay like that, especially when hugely responsible for his success. no one wants to work with someone who already has personal drama and speaks so candidly about directors. however, i respect him for sticking up for her and setting the record straight. that takes courage and is extremely chivalrous.

    Re: PalmSprings – i agree. but it always creeps me out to see her next to that guy shes dating. i always think its her dad.

  7. uyeah says – reply to this

    Re: patcee – She's MARRIED to Brian Green. And he's smoking hot himself.

  8. uyeah says – reply to this

    Re: patcee – Oooops, sorry. I thought you were talking about Megan. Don't know who the replacement is dating but Brian Green is also much older than Megan, but not to the point of looking like her dad.

    Both movies were absolutely TERRIBLE, so she did herself a favor by speaking out and not being in the 3rd. She's a very nice person, by the way. I've met her on several occasions and she is absolutely stunning in person, very down to earth, too. She'll be just fine.

    Re: uyeah – its the guy from the transporter films, who is good looking, but side by side with rosie looks years older, as he is.

    Re: ickynicky – I'm glad she's a nice person, but personality gets you shit in Hollywood. she foul-mouthed a director and who will want to work with that again? she had a lot of balls for a girl who was doing nothing before Bay, and I bet she's wishing she shut her trap now with her shitty movies. I lost all respect for her as soon as she opened her mouth like that about her boss at the time. so unprofessional

    i think michael bay is a serious creep and megan got tired of it. i don't think she'll take shit like that for long. i bet he wanted a sexual favor for the comments she made about him so she could stay in the 3rd movie and she walked away, she's loyal to BAG. anyways the 2nd movie got shit reviews. i give her credit for having a spine in hollywood and speaking opinions, a lot of actresses tiptoe around and apologize for everything, bleh all hail the golden age actresses they did and said what they wanted! Hollywood is sexist actors are allowed to get away with so much shit.



  13. 13

    If all of her other movies didnt show off her body..then maybe I'd have sympathy.



  14. 14

    hm maybe she was dumb to not agree with the director but the replacement is just an over grown white girl with big lips, im sorry i wish megan was still a part of this movie. now it's just cheap…er

    I will miss Megan Fox in the next Transformers film. She and Shia LaBeouf made a good couple in the last two. It was maybe a bit stupid of her to talk about Michael Bay being a nazi director if she wants to do an action film later on in her career. But she is still making films - she was actually pretty good in "Jennifer's Body" and has some pretty interesting films lined up. I think she will be totally ok without the Transformers franchise.

    Unfortunately Michael Bay will also still making films after Transformers….

    Shia didn't call Michael Bay "lascivious" again you take things out of context, he said "who some people think is a very lascivious filmmaker" either you don't read your own comments or your lackeys don't read the comments you put forth.

    This film is going to TANK! Megan character was a big part of the story people came to see #2 mainly because of her. The new girl is NOT PRETTY! she is just young and different! Meagan was so striking in the debut film and that propelled her to fame. Rosie sometimes has ugly looks in the preview shots like the camera isn't kind to her. I find her extremely ugly with no IT girl quality at all.

    sorry but megan fox would be nowhere without transformers. while the director may be a chauvinistic guy who knows what horny teens who will be watching the movie want to see, she should have understood that she was not hired for her 'acting' skills. Bay gave her the fame and the idea that she was supposed to be in movies.
