Megan Fox is perhaps best known for appearing opposite Shia La Beouf in the “Transformer” movies, both of which were huge successes. Her one foray into a starring role was in “Jennifer’s Body”, and that tanked at the box office and was ripped to shreds by the critics.
So, you’d think she’d want to stay on the good side of the film company gearing up to make “Transformers 3”. Well, that’s not the case.
It turns out that she said a host of nasty things about director Michael Bay (director of both “Transformer” films) last summer; she used the names Napoleon and Hitler in conjunction with her feelings about Mr. Bay.
Someone ought to tell Ms. Fox: these are not the sorts of names you want to use when talking about the man who controls your future employment. After that, the crew from the movie wrote a letter where they complained about how she behaved on the set.
To his credit, Michael Bay tried to address the crew’s concerns and smoothe things over. Unfortunately, too many actors think that they’re more important than they really are; that they can do whatever they want, and a studio will put up with their shenanigans in order to please their fans.
Given that Megan’s previous role was in the TV sitcom “Hope & Faith”, and that was quite a few years ago, she doesn’t exactly have a huge fan base. So, now it’s been announced that she won’t be in the third “Transformer” movie; the writers are coming up with a new love interest for Shia’s character.
If she expects to get her career “in gear”, Megan Fox is going to have to learn to get along with directors and production staff. Here’s hoping she has better luck with her next film.
