Michael Bay On Megan Fox: She Can Say Some "very ridiculous things"

Tell us how you REALLY feel, Megan!



Looks to me like Fox is getting,...well...cocky. At least she's a realist, though. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Megan Fox voiced her real feelings about the film that turned her into a star virtually overnight.


“I can’t s**t on this movie because it did give me a career and open all the doors for me. But I don’t want to blow smoke up people’s a**. People are well aware that that this is not a movie about acting.”


Well, she isn't known for her ingenuity; but at least the girl is honest. She has a lot to owe to Michael Bay, and if I were her, I would keep my mouth shut, or at least refrain from using "Sh**" and "a**" in an interview.

We've previously reported how sentimental Director Michael Bay has gotten in the past when he's had to come to the defense of his summer blockbusters; this time was no different. Seems Bay took what Fox said pretty personally.

“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...“Nic 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.”


Michael Bay is certainly very modest, isn't he?

Both are being full of hot-air,but they're certainly not being as prideful as a certain Boll...

Nobody in this story comes out looking good... except Will Smith.

@EisforExtinction: Everything involving Will Smith is usually good.

I think Megan should be grateful that Transformers isn't and acting movie, considering that she can't act.

Posted by Rothschild

Will Smith is  a great guy thats why... As for Mega Fox(yes MEGA Fox) I like her for her looks not her wisdom...

Posted by NovaHulk

Transformers is the only thing that made us know her :p

Posted by Joe Venom

Did she really think she was cast for her acting, just look at wardrobe.

Posted by Reaper 13

Oh people are just so funny squabbling over how they became this big star and all.  I will tell you this though, Megan Fox's choice of vocabulary just shows how well educated this one really is.  Way too funny, just too damn funny.

she should be happy that Bay saved her from becoming a washed up lifetime/ABC family actress, but then again at least those actresses knew how to act at one point in their caree. i mean thats pretty a$$y of her to say

Michael Bay does not play.

Posted by Reaper 13

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that I don't think most people like Megan Fox.  Not sure what it is but something is just screaming that to me.....  Or is it just me?

Posted by Tyler Starke
Bay just had to bring up Armageddon didn't he lol and Martin Lawrence????,
Posted by xerox_kitty

Bless her, at least she's still realistic.  But what's up with Bay's ego?  He's just saying 'I make super stars' :p

Megan Fox better not burn any bridges she doesn't have alot of talent and needs the autobots and decepticons, and she wasn't as hot in the first movie as the blonde haired australian actress in the first movie or Isabel Lucas in the second movie.

Posted by MrDirector786

Bay's full of hot air. Still, ROTF was awesome to me.

Posted by Shanana

Hm...Can't act and still making millions, or can act and hating.


Um don't know about you guys but i'd make millions.

Posted by 5N1KT

she doesn't understand that the only reason she's in this movie is because she's a pretty face and not because they needed a good actress for the role.  she should be kissing bay's a** for the opportunity

Posted by Aronmorales

"Megan Fox says the darnedest things"...

Posted by AngelFrost

God ... Arogant directors ...
when yeah, they are the ones behind the camera.

GO MEGAN!

Lol yeah Martin Lawrence's latest movie was Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins i believe i saw it and it was probably the worst movie i seen him in, i just watched National Security today and even being as old and low budget as it was i even liked that better, he seems to be a great guy with potential with movies but i hope if he is in another movie he steps his game up...

I wonder if in the third sequel Megan will have a very unfortunate run in with a decepticon...

Posted by jefprice

Well what he said was true. 

Posted by jefprice

I'm not real sure why every single person (it seems like) is so against MB, no one makes a better popcorn flick. The Island, The Rock, Transformers, Bad Boys/BB2, Etc

Posted by Odyssey_Dawn

Micheal Bay is a whinny b!tch. I agree with what Fox said 100% Its not like she said anything hurtful or even about Bay himself. The dude is just hyper sensitive. And it cracks me up how he takes credit for Afleck, Smith, Cage, and Martin Lawrence's careers. As if they weren't already famous before he blessed them with roles in his movies. Bay needs to go get himself a Hug and a Pepsi and stop crying.

THE FOX doesn't need Transformers. THE FOX made Transformers.  THE FOX MADE THE PYRAMIDS.

i love her so much, megan if you get this...................wil you marry me?

Posted by Obsurity

I think some of the actors Bay mentioned were somewhat star worthy before working with him. Fox should complain too much even though she has a point

Posted by Daedo
@EisforExtinction: hahaha very true
Posted by Darkchild

Reading this i couldnt stop laughing at the fact he said that no one even knew who she was before transformers

Posted by goldenkey

Damn you gotta admit the guy is right in that sense,  He just named so pretty huge actors and backed it up.  But if there's one thing I learned from (what might be a bad example) Entorage is you have to do the ceritfiably marketable movie in order to get the rolls you really want.  Prove you can do a popcorn movie and then you get to pick the rolls you want.  "You do Aquaman you dumb ^%$#."

Posted by The Psyentist

Megan Fox shouldn't put her nose up at what Bay has done for her career. Plenty of...ahem...face time.

I can understand Bay's disdain and haughty reply. After all, he did way more for the movie than Fox did (or could probably imagine); he felt slighted by her remarks. And seriously? A** and s**t? That's profound and ladylike...*sarcasm!*

A famous director and an up and coming starlet both have huge egos, news at 11.

I thought the 2nd was done better then the first. More humor, action, better camera work Etc. But really I enjoy MB films. I see his name on it, and I know I'm going to get his signature Coloring, Camera Work and Blockbuster Action. That's what I want from his films, That's what he tries to give us, and that's what we get. He's a lot like Tony Scott in that regard. Whom I also enjoy btw. I don't think that someone who does what he does should be expected to make art films or whatever. To be honest I think what guys like TS and MB do is a art in and of itself, one that critics seem to be trying to do away with. But in reality many of us, in fact most of us, still want to see them and enjoy them. Which is why the movies they make are always the big high grossing blockbusters. It's the few that yell and cry and moan about how awful these guys are, not the many. If it were the many I wouldn't get feedback from people saying they've seen their film 2,3 or even 4 times at $10 a ticket during a recession.

To be honest Me and lot of other fans wish he would have never been director for this Movie Franchise. Alot of reasons I can spill. But this in particular is another one.

Ben Afleck didnt blow up cause of Armageddon, he blew up cause he helped make Good Will Hunting. Martin Lawrence blew up in House Party and Do the Right Thing. Will Smith was the Fresh Prince looong before Bay came along. I'm not saying they didn't go on to have great success after working with Bay, but for him to take credit for it, as if these names wouldn't have gone on to bigger things had they never met him is what I find ridiculous. Not Fox's comments.

I like how he tried to put a hand in Will Smith's success.

Maybe he meant Martin Lawrence and Will Smith as a team. That would be true. They weren't famous for being together before Bad Boys.

Posted by Emperor Gonzo Noir

she may be overrated but she is a realist so that is a check in her plus column

That's what I'm saying. Micheal Bay needs to stop drinking the  Kool Aid.
