Some time ago director Michael Bay had it out with his leading lady, for making a few remarks about the last Tranformers film.Â His revenge?Â To cut her completely.
Just in case you missed it the first time around, this is what went down.
This is an open letter to all Michael Bay fans. We are three crew members that have worked with Michael for the past ten years. Last week we read the terrible article with inflammatory, truly trashing quotes by the Ms. Fox about Michael Bay. This letter is to set a few things straight.
Yes, Megan has great eyes, a tight stomach we spray with glycerin, and an awful silly Marilyn Monroe tattoo plastered on her arm that we cover up to keep the moms happy.
Michael found this shy, inexperienced girl, plucked her out of total obscurity thus giving her the biggest shot of any young actresses’ life. He told everyone around to just trust him on his choice. He granted her the starring role in Transformers, a franchise that forever changed her life; she became one of the most googled and oogled women on earth. She was famous! She was the next Angelina Jolie, hooray! Wait a minute, two of us worked with Angelina â€“ second thought â€“ sheâ€™s no Angelina. You see, Angelia is a professional.
We know this quite intimately because weâ€™ve had the tedious experience of working with the dumb-as-a-rock Megan Fox on both Transformers movies. We’ve spent a total of 12 months on set making these two movies.
We are in different departments; we canâ€™t give our names because sadly doing so in Hollywood could lead to being banished from future Paramount work. One of us touches Meganâ€™s panties, the other has the often shitty job of pulling Ms. Sourpants out of her trailer, while another is near the Panaflex camera that helps to memorialize the valley girl on film.
Megan has the press fooled. When we read those magazines we wish we worked with that woman. Megan knows how to work her smile for the press. Those writers should try being on set for two movies, sadly she never smiles. The cast, crew and director make Transformers a really fun and energetic set. Weâ€™ve traveled around the world together, so we have never understood why Megan was always such the grump of the set?
When facing the press, Megan is the queen of talking trailer trash and posing like a porn star. And yes weâ€™ve had the unbearable time of watching her try to act on set, and yes, it’s very cringe-able. So maybe, being a porn star in the future might be a good career option. But make-up beware, she has a paragraph tattooed to her backside (probably due her rotten childhood) — easily another 45 minutes in the chair!
So when the three of us caught wind of Ms Fox, pontificating yet again in some publication (like she actually has something interesting to say) blabbing her trash mouth about a director whom we three have grown to really like. She compared working with Michael, to â€œworking with Hitlerâ€. We actually donâ€™t think she knows who Hitler is by the way. But we wondered how she doesnâ€™t realize what a disgusting, fully uneducated comment this was? Well, here letâ€™s get some facts straight.
Say what you want about Michael â€“ yes at times he can be hard, but he’s also fun, and he challenges everyone for a reason â€“ he simply wants people to bring their â€˜Aâ€™ game. He comes very prepared, knows exactly what he wants, involves the crew and expects everyone to follow through with his or her best, and that includes the actors. Heâ€™s one of the hardest working directors out there.
He gets the best from his crews, many of whom have worked with him for 15 years. And yes, heâ€™s loyal, one of the few directors weâ€™ve encountered who lowered his fee by millions to keep Transformers in the United States and California, so he could work with his own crew.
Megan says that Transformers was an unsafe set? Come on Megan, we know it is a bit more strenuous then the playground at the trailer park, but you donâ€™t insult one of the very best stunt and physical effects teams in the business! Not one person got hurt!
And who is the real Megan Fox? She is very different than the academy nominee and winning actors weâ€™ve all worked around. Sheâ€™s as about ungracious a person as you can ever fathom. She shows little interest in the crew members around her. We work to make her look good in every way, but she’s absolutely never appreciative of anyoneâ€™s hard work. Never a thank you. All the crewmembers have stopped saying hi to Ms. Princess because she never says hello back. It gets tiring. Many think she just really hates the process of being an actress.
Megan has been late to the sets many times. She goes through the motions that make her exude this sense of misery. Weâ€™ve heard the A.Dâ€™s piped over the radio that Megan wonâ€™t walk from her trailer until John Turturro walks first! Johnâ€™s done seventy-five movies and sheâ€™s made two!
Never expect Megan to attend any of the 15 or so crew parties like all the other actors have. And then there’s the classless night she blew off The Royal Prince of Jordan who made a special dinner for all the actors. She doesnâ€™t know that one of the grips’ daughters wanted to visit their daddyâ€™s work to meet Megan, but he wouldnâ€™t let them come because he told them â€œshe is not nice.”
The press certainly doesnâ€™t know her most famous line. On our first day in Egypt, the Egyptian government wouldnâ€™t let us shoot because of a permit problem as the actors got ready in make up at the Four Seasons Hotel. Michael tried to make the best of it; he wanted to take the cast and crew on a private tour of the famous Giza pyramids. God hold us witness, Megan said, “I canâ€™t believe Michael is fucking forcing us to go to the fucking pyramids!” I guess this is the â€œHitler guyâ€ she is referring to.
So this is the Megan Fox you donâ€™t get to see. Maybe she will learn, but we figure if she can sling insults, then she can take them too. Megan really is a thankless, classless, graceless, and shall we say unfriendly bitch. It’s sad how fame can twist people, and even sadder that young girls look up to her. If only they knew who they’re really looking up to.
But â€˜fameâ€™ is fleeting. We, being behind the scenes, seen emâ€™ come and go. Hopefully Michael will have Megatron squish her character in the first ten minutes of Transformers 3. We can tell you that will make the crew happy!

And at the end of the day, these two movies will have probably been the biggest flicks of Megan Fox’s career. Maybe this was a good choice, but we’re going to miss gawking at Ms. Fox on the big screen.
