Shia LaBeouf: Megan Fox was not comfortable with Michael Bay making her a sex symbol in ‘Transformers’!
The ‘Transformers’ main man, Shia LaBeouf, has a confession to make: The set of the movie series has changed for the better ever since Megan Fox was replaced by Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.
Because Miss Fox could never adapt to director Michael Bay’s take on sexuality.
“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,Ã¢â¬Â LaBeouf tells theÃÂ Los Angeles times. Ã¢â¬ÅMike films women in a way that appeals to a 16-year-old sexuality. ItÃ¢â¬â¢s summer. ItÃ¢â¬â¢s MichaelÃ¢â¬â¢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. WeÃ¢â¬â¢re on the run. And the one thing Mike lacks is tact. ThereÃ¢â¬â¢s no time for, Ã¢â¬ËI would like you to just arch your back 70 degrees.Ã¢â¬â¢Ã¢â¬Â
(Fox, who played Mikaela in the first two films, has compared Bay to Nazis and Napoleon.)
Ã¢â¬ÅRosie comes with this VictoriaÃ¢â¬â¢s Secret background, and sheÃ¢â¬â¢s comfortable with it, so she can get down with MikeÃ¢â¬â¢s way of working and it makes the whole set vibe very different,Ã¢â¬Â LaBeouf said.
LaBeouf ways his character is coddled more with Huntington-Whiteley in the film, which hits theaters June 29.
Ã¢â¬ÅSamÃ¢â¬â¢s sort of frustrated,Ã¢â¬Â LaBeouf says. Ã¢â¬ÅHe has no purpose in life. When he was with the Autobots, he had purpose. He was needed. But heÃ¢â¬â¢s got this very supportive girl [Huntington-Whitley’s character Carly Miller] whoÃ¢â¬â¢s having him go to these job interviews and trying to nurture him, get him back on his feet. ItÃ¢â¬â¢s a different female energy than he experienced with Mikaela, who was a very cold biker chick. This womanÃ¢â¬â¢s more of a maternal, loving type. Sam wants a domestic, eggs-in-the-morning kind of a thing.Ã¢â¬Â
