Default Michael Bay "wants to be like Hitler" according to Megan Fox

Megan Fox on Michael Bay: 'He wants to be like Hitler.'



Quote:
Let's be frank. I'm not sure if Megan Fox, the sultry starlet of "Transformers" fame, actually knows all that much about Hitler, other than the fact that he had a mustache, makes a brief appearance for some reason in Quentin Tarantino's "Inglourious Basterds" and -- if you believe various right-wing nut-jobs -- seems to have promoted a healthcare plan back in the 1930s that was a lot like the one the Democrats are trying to ram through Congress this year. (OK, I'm not actually sure Fox knows that last part at all.)

But having been on a few movie sets in recent years, Fox sure knows a Type A dictatorial personality type when she sees one, which must be why in this new interview with Wonderland magazine, she decided to compare "Transformers" director Michael Bay to the notoriously madcap leader of the Third Reich. (The interview with Fox was actually designed to promote her upcoming fall release, "Jennifer's Body," but why talk about yet another bloody horror-comedy thriller when you can wax eloquent about Michael Bay.)

At any rate, as Fox puts it: "[Michael] wants to create this insane, infamous mad-man reputation. He wants to be like Hitler on his sets, and he is. So he's a nightmare to work for but when you get him away from set, and he's not in director mode, I kind of really enjoy his personality because he's so awkward, so hopelessly awkward. He has no social skills at all. It's endearing to watch him. He's so vulnerable and fragile in real life and then on set, he's a tyrant."

Hmmmm: hopelessly awkward, vulnerable, no social skills and a nightmare to work for. Actually, what boy wonder filmmaker from the past 40 years does that description not apply to?
Wow, Fox really doesn't like this guy. You can always feel the tension from interviews let it be video/written.

Michaely Bays response is going to be hilarious. Can't wait until they publish that.

His response will simply be an explosion big enough to destroy most of Kansas, in slow motion, of course.

She "hates" him? Read in between the lines:

Sounds more like Jennifer's Body is cruisin' for a Baygasm.

I so want to give her a platonic hug right now. I like her even more.
So he really is the high school bully/frat boy we all expected him to be...

I think Nolan must be worse with his female stars. While Cameron ends up marrying them...

Not that i'm a fan of Michael Bay (only enjoyed his first Transformers), but why does Megan Fox complain? She gets famous all over the world, has a huge salary. It's not like she has much to say in the films (text to remember), she just bends a bit over, shakes her ass, does a bit kissing here and there, being sexy. Well is that so hard?

freedom of speech is also something otimus will fight for

this isn't the first of bays cast to complain about his antics

the thing is many of his cast don't complain,
see tyreese, shia, and smith

welcome to the biz lady, it's not all indy flicks shot by women.
she'll be back when the pay checks get too small for her to handle.

No what he says is right. Bay is that typical over brash American. Think dick head frat boys and "bro's". His "humour" is obviously aimed at them. He is just a douche frat boy trapped inside a 50 year olds body.

Agreed, Bay is the guy who put her on the map also.

Take it for what you will, but some alleged crew members sent a response to Bay's official site about Fox's comments:

http://www.michaelbay.com/newsblog/f...-response.html

Nelson here...

I received this letter from crew members who've worked with Michael on Transformers. Below is their response to Megan Fox's recent comments in which she hurled insults at Michael Bay.

******

Nelson,

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 – second thought – she’s no Angelina. You see, Angelia is a professional.

We know this quite intimately because we’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 can’t give our names because sadly doing so in Hollywood could lead to being banished from future Paramount work. One of us touches Megan’s panties, the other has the often ****** job of pulling Ms. Sour pants 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. We’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 we’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 “working with Hitler”. We actually don’t think she knows who Hitler is by the way. But we wondered how she doesn’t realize what a disgusting, fully uneducated comment this was? Well, here let’s get some facts straight.

Say what you want about Michael – yes at times he can be hard, but he's also fun, and he challenges everyone for a reason – he simply wants people to bring their ‘A’ 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. He’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, he’s loyal, one of the few directors we’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 don’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 we’ve all worked around. She’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 anyone’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. We’ve heard the A.D’s piped over the radio that Megan won’t walk from her trailer until John Turturro walks first! John’s done seventy-five movies and she’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 doesn’t know that one of the grips daughters wanted to visit their daddy’s work to meet Megan, but he wouldn’t let them come because he told them “she is not nice."

The press certainly doesn’t know her most famous line. On our first day in Egypt, the Egyptian government wouldn’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 can’t believe Michael is ****ing forcing us to go to the ****ing pyramids!" I guess this is the “Hitler guy” she is referring to.

So this is the Megan Fox you don’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 *****. 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 ‘Fame’ is fleeting. We, being behind the scenes, seen em’ 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!

-Loyal Transformers Crew

I'm almost wondering if the stuff HE said about her is true, considering she was only a 3 second extra in Bad Boys 2 and coincidentally ended up in Transformers as one of the stars; both directed by Bay. Which means either he has a good memory, or he hit it.

i think she was cast in TF because she was hot and she was super cheap. really she looked good and thats what it was all about in the first movie. and she was a noone so she was cheap to hire.

Depending on who you ask, she's still a nobody.
