Transformer’s director Michael Bay spoke with GQ magazine about the real reasons behind star Megan Fox not appearing in any more of the films, and as expected her outlandish comments got her ina bit of hot water, most notably when she talked about Bay, saying he “wants to be like Hitler on his sets” and that he’s “a nightmare to work for.”
“She was in a different world, on her BlackBerry. You gotta stay focused,” Bay tells the July issue of GQ, on newsstands Tuesday. “And you know, the Hitler thing. Steven said, ‘Fire her right now.’ ”
He was referring to Steven Spielberg, one of the executive producers. Fellow Transformers star Shia LaBeouf says he agrees Fox went too far.
“Criticism is one thing,” he told the magazine. “Then there’s public name-calling, which turns into high school bashing. Which you can’t do. She started s—-talking our captain.”
Bay, however, says he was able to put the actress’s comments into perspective.
“I wasn’t hurt, because I know that’s just Megan,” he says. “Megan loves to get a response. And she does it in the wrong way. I’m sorry, Megan. I’m sorry I made you work 12 hours. I’m sorry that I’m making you show up on time. Movies are not always warm and fuzzy.”
“She sent me a text three months ago. She said, ‘I hope you’re doing well,’” he recounts. “I responded, ‘Who is this?’ She goes, ‘Megan, you dork!’ I said, ‘Oh, well, thank you, hope you’re well.’ When you’re days and months on a set, it’s like a family. You say rude things and you make up.”
