Megan Fox’s internal filter is clogged up with jizz (and other man-made particles), so she tends to say exactly what she’s thinking all the time! Example time! Megan said this a little while ago about Transformers, “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.”
Um. Thank you, Professor Whory McObvious! We didn’t already know that. I mean, if you see the words “MEGAN FOX” on a movie poster, then you know you’re not going to witness the second coming of Laurence Olivier. Only Megan Fox could make a CGI robot look like they’ve trained most of their life at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts.
The director of Transformers has slapped Megan right back for her comment. Michael Bay told The Wall Street Journal (via UsWeekly), “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.”
I think it’s safe to say that we can also file the above quote in the “Ridiculous Things” category. Bay, please! Is he actually taking credit for turning Nicolas Cage into a big star?! Does Michael Bay’s memory leave out everything that was made before 1996? Two words: VALLEY GIRL. Deborah Foreman should get the “thank you” fruit basket from Nic Cage. Not Michael Bay.
