It seems like forever ago that Megan Fox was suddenly axed from appearing in the third Transformers movie in 2009.
She had appeared in the first two movies of the series, and the role very dramatically made her the focus of the media’s attention, and soon enough she was dubbed one of the sexiest women in the world. However, by the time the third installment of this painful-to-watch franchise rolled around, she was surprisingly replaced by model-turned actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, who became the franchise’s new leading lady. What’s even more surprising is the revelation that Megan was fired not long after filming Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, for reasons that were never fully explained to the public. What’s more, we’ve never known how Fox felt about being let go from the franchise. Until now… Her exit from the popular movie series came after the Tomb Raider actress did a very telling interview with Wonderland magazine as part of the movie’s press tour. In the eye-opening interview, she described the director Michael Bay as wanting “to create this insane, infamous madman reputation. He wants to be like Hitler on his sets, and he is.” Very recently Megan spoke to Cosmopolitan and very candidly delved into how it felt to be dropped from the cast in a very public manner. “That was absolutely the low point of my career,” Megan reveals. “But without ‘that thing’, I wouldn’t have learned as quickly as I did. All I had to do was apologise – and I refused. I was so self-righteous at 23, I couldn’t see [that] it was for the greater good. I really thought I was Joan of Arc.” Apparently movie mogul Steven Spielberg (who also happens to the executive producer of the movies) demanded Megan Fox be fired from the next Transformers movie after she described Michael Bay as being like Hitler on set. And sure, the Transformers franchise has become a steaming pile of buffalo manure following the first movie, relying on nothing more than expensive visual effects – but that’s absolutely no reason to refer to Bay as being like one of the most sadistic dictators in history. In 2011, when the third Transformers movie, Dark of the Moon was released, Bay told GQ magazine: “You know the Hitler thing. Steven (Spielberg) said, fire her right now.” However, Fox has stated that she has only learned from the experience: “It hurt me and a lot of other people. However, that darkness that descended caused enormous and brisk spiritual growth. Once I realized I [had] brought it on myself, it was an invaluable learning experience, looking back on it.” This certainly isn’t the first time that Megan has spoken out in a very divisive manner. In fact, the stunning actress has been known to “overstep the mark” and overshare during several points in her career. For instance, she once said “f*ck Disney” in a bid to defend former Disney stars Miley Cyrus and Vanessa Hudgens. During that time, both of these young women were pretty much compelled into apologizing for “lewd” photos of them which had been released to the public. Megan felt that this was not only unfair, but also called out Disney on their hypocrisy:
“F*ck Disney. They take these little girls, and they put them through entertainment school and teach them to sing and dance, and make them wear belly shirts, but they won’t allow them to be their own people. It makes me sick.”
Well, Megan Fox may have been fired from an extremely popular movie franchise, but there’s no denying she has still had success in spite of committing one of the biggest Hollywood faux pas (biting the hand that feeds you). As if you needed any more proof that Megan Fox can be outspoken in a very bizarre way, well, apparently her unborn babies speak to her while they’re in the womb: Nonetheless, I think I can speak on behalf of any Transformers fans when I say that the movies just haven’t been the same without her, and that we hope to see her reunite with Optimus and the gang further down the road.
