When Megan Fox was asked to discuss Transformers director Michael Bay in an interview she didn’t hold back. “He’s like Napoleon and he wants to create this insane, infamous mad-man reputation,” the 25-year-old actress told Wonderland. “He wants to be like Hitler on his sets, and he is. So he’s a nightmare to work for…””
It turns out the big bosses were listening and Michael Bay has revealed in a recent interview with GQ that it was the film’s executive producer Steven Spielberg who demanded Fox was fired. Bay said: “You know the Hitler thing? Steven (Spielberg) said, fire her right now.” Co-star Shia LaBeouf was in agreement, telling GQ: “She started sh–talking our captain. Which you can’t do.”
At the time audiences were led to believe Fox wished to pursue alternative acting opportunities. She was replaced by British model Rosie Huntington-Whitley in “Transformers 3: Dark Of The Moon,” which is released 29th June 2011.
