About a year ago when news broke that Megan Fox had quit Transformers 3 because director Michael Bay was “verbally abusive” toward her, questions began to rise on who could fill in for her and if the sequel could be saved. Of course, fast forward ahead to today and we have Rosie Huntington-Whiteley as the fill in and yes, the sequel has very much been saved.
Steven Spielberg, Megan Fox, Michael Bay, Transformers 3
He should have let her comment slide for now as a worning. Beside there just words. He needs need to train him self to expect serton thing like that because people have there opinion. And she was just expressing her which probably sounded rather ruddly but he should have gave one last chance at lease until after the thired transformer. I kind of messice up the story line with her love with the charactor. I wanted to see how far they would go with there relationship.
Instead of recasting her they should of wrote her out of the script.. maybe say she went to college or moved or something.. the recast was
horrible no one could can fill her shoes for that part,. Just sayin
i have seen transformers many times i think it was great with megan fox, but i wouldnt care if she was in the movie or not. who knows it might even be better with out her in it. i think when megan used that comment about hilter she was not thinking about what can happen if i say this. she could of used another chose of words. but what im still wondering is why did she say that to him anyways. did he say anything to offend her and they just kept going back and forth? who really knows. but if you dont want to watch the new transformers movie its your chose.
Let's face it: Meagan Fox is a brat. I find it amazing how so many child stars are cute in their younger years and just hell to be with in their older years. Of course Steven should have fired her: Not only was she giving Transformers 3 a bad reputation, but she was also saying things without thinking, a horrible trait to have in the film industry. If she is any kind of good person, she would apologize to Speilberg while she still has the chance.
She's hot, yes, in a trailer trash sort of way, but not a very good actress. From the little I've seen of her when she's not performing, she's a real *****. It was Spielberg's call to fire her. There's probably more it that we don't even know and that was the straw that broke it. Its a bad idea to piss off your boss no matter who you are.
Hollywood is all about the 'pretty face'. And William Coyne is right on target with his post. There are just some things you don't do once you have been handed the golden egg!
When the name Speilberg is associated with a movie you can just about bet that I will be seeing it. Super 8 was great! I actually saw it twice. Once alone and the second time with one of my grandsons. And he loved it too!
If the commercials are any clue as to this new girls acting ability I pray that they kept her lines to a minimum. I can't say for sure, but the expressions on her face during the movie trailers I"ve seen tell me she is not a good actor, just a pretty face. And with a franchise that is getting played out by having Shia scream "Optimus" or "Bumble Bee" the same way in every movie, they needed to find a leading lady with looks and chops. Sorry, Bay, not good enough.
I will still go see it, I really didn't care for Megan Fox. She isn't even that sexy in my opinion but guys just went to see it just because she was in it. If she did compare him to Hitler then they had every right to fire her. I can't wait to see this new Transformers movie, I think its going to be awesome.
When someone compares another person to Hitler, they are clearly refering to his antisemetism and none of his other endless traits or characteristics...
Megan Fox is soooo stupid that she didn't realize that Hollywood is ran by Jews! So when you compare someone with Hitler, of course you're gonna get the boot. Now all the other Jews in Hollywood are gonna give her a hard time too and she'll fade away slowly.
I Guess Steven Should Be Big Man Enough To Let The Comment Slide Just Once, It Is Now Obviously That These Two Asses Like Blonde Over Brunette/Black Hair, I Lawys Believe In What Go Around Come Around Like Who To Say Steven Won't Fire Either Rosie Or Bay In Near Future. And Also Who To Say TF3 Won't Bomb In Box-Office, Now I Know Steven Isn't A Real Big Man. I Am So Glad His Super 8 Movie Is Box-Office Disaster. Hopfully That Trend Will Continue On TF3! I Am Also Glad That Megan Will Have A Chance To Work With Director/Producer That Who Will Respect Her Talent & Beauty!
super 8...box office disaster. sorry did it not take the top spot the week it came out? did it not already pass its budget and cross into the profit zone? is it not critically acclaimed? is it not going to be the ONLY original film to top the box office this summer? and why did you feel the need to capitalize the beginning of every word? just wondering.
ps tf3 will not bomb. it'll probably be between tf3 and hp8 for the biggest summer movie this year.
Too bad. That movie was horrible. A waste of my $8. What adult wants to see a movie about little kids against a BIG scary monster that stays hidden through the entire movie except for like 5 instances. And it is way to ugly/scary a monster for kids.
clearly lots do. hence the millions the movie has made already. besides, i thought it was a spectacular movie. the kids were better actors than most adults that get on screen. and there are lots of other elements of that movie that really stand out artistically that I won't geek out on with you since you didn't appreciate it anyway.
Unfortunately the world is not at a point where we call hold hands and just get along. Perhaps in another universe this works, but not on the planet earth.
Fox has learned the bases of politics in the movie industry. When some one pays you a AN INSANE AMOUNT OF MONEY,(MILLIONS), you are expected to follow basic rules.
1) Criticize in private, compliment in public.
2)Support the work project in a positive way.
3)Don't undermine your Bosses authority among the work force.
4)Above all "DON"T" put a negative image on the Miltie Million dollar movie project your working on. Its your bread and butter.
She broke all 4 rules. Now Fox may have 2 more movie contracts in the works, but after that ,Well ,Has she ever heard the term: BLACK LISTED!
personally, she is lame actress. the only reason she was in the other 2 was to bring younger generation to the series. this is fact bay said that in a interview with ET
Someone with Spielberg's power and wisdom should have used the opportunity as a teachable moment instead of an opportunity to flex his power and get her fired. Instead he should have spoken to her himself and educated her to the fact that those comparisons are hurtful to people who survived life in the death camps (and the families of those who did not survive). A little knowledge would have gone a long way, and could have turned her thinking around instead of punishing her. Maybe he didn't think she was worth the effort, but I think that whenever we encounter racism and hate-speak, we shouldn't just bainsh the offender, we should, where possible, confront and educate. This is a relatively small planet. We all ultimately need to get along.
I agree. Instead he acted like a hot headed jerk and went on a power trip
I love how she said she doesn't want to exploited sexually then is in jeniffers body, jonah hex, and passion play. WTF?
Ha ha, I wasn't going to see this movie at all, UNTIL I heard she was fired. She was TERRIBLE in the first two. TERRIBLE in Jennifer's Body. She's just an awful actress. After the first two movies, I was done. Then they fired her, and I thought... oh, it might be good now. Can't wait to see it!
I think it's funny you guys are upset that Megan Fox won't be in the sequel. I've never been a huge fan myself... she's ok. However, I do think it's kind of weird when you way you (PeopleRNuts) say that you won't see the new movie since Megan Fox isn't in it. I don't know about you.. but I go to Transformer movies to see the Transformers... maybe I'm weird.
I know that I will not watch a Transformer movie that does not include Megan Fox regardless of what ever attractive woman is hired. I saw the other two several times at the theaters and purchased each video when it came out. Bay and Spielberg dont need my money for sure, but I can guarantee that neither will be getting any for this movie. Many of my friends feel the same. So Speilberg, if this is true, you are an idiot
you're funny. this movie will make hundreds of millions easily.
I agree. I REFUSE to see the movie just based on this. And I'm a straight girl, but Megan Fox is beautiful and her character was developing into a "tougher chick" and I wanted to see her shoot some guns and kick some butt. I don't want to see Rosie Huff (who is weird looking and not pretty in my opinion) be a wimpy scared-of-everything damsel in distress. Come on! By the third movie, we want a sexy beautiful kick butt girl who grew up a bit. ESPECIALLY after you see Megan Fox in Eminem's music video! She was totally hot and sexy! Spielberg is a jerk
People say stupid things, it's their actions that should be judged.
"Welcome to the party, pal."
"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
