Spielberg, the movie’s producer, was apparently furius that she compared Michael Bay to Hitler during a press interview. In the pre-production interview, Megan Fox said Bay wants to be “like Hitler on his sets.”
Michael Bay said that he was not personally upset by the comment and Fox claimed she simply left the third movie in the “Transformers” series to pursue other opportunities.
But as we approach the July 4 premiere of “Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon,” director Bay revealed he was told to fire the star, who has also been named as one of the most beautiful women in the world. Megan Fox (25) had appeared in both of the first wo movies.
Bay revealed that Steven Spielberg had said to him, “You know the Hitler thing? Fire her right now.”
She was replaced in the third “Transformers” movie by the British model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.
Basically, we suppose Megan Fox intended to say that Michael Bay is a dictator on the sets of his movies. Do you think Fox was out of order in likening him to Hitler? Or was she simply using language as it is commonly used today? Was it worth firing her over, if Bay himself was not upset?
