Before you read the statement that completely puts Megan Fox in her place, you have to know what she said to fully appreciate Michael Bay’s comeback. And while I agree with what she says, I do think she had no right in saying it to the press. To Brian Austen Green in bed, maybe, but not to the public. She said:
“I can’t shit on this movie because it did give me a career and open all these doors for me. But I don’t want to blow smoke up people’s ass. People are well aware that this is not a movie about acting.”
So she’s acknowledging it gave her a career but still taking a shit on the movie. Hmm. What did director Michael Bay have to say about this?
“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. You roll your eyes when you see statements like that and think, ‘Okay Megan, you can do whatever you want. I got it. Nick 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.”
Owned! He could have said a lot more that would have been way more mean but this was classy, considering. Megan Fox needs to stop trying to be the “outspoken bad-ass” and just STFU. No one cares what she thinks or feels. Just let us look at you, okay?
