Up until now we thought Megan Fox could do no wrong. Boy, were we mistaken. The Hollywood actress should have stuck to the script on the set of Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon, but instead she unleashed a war of words and it upset many Hollywood types, including Steven Spielberg.
Fox was fired from the multi-million dollar franchise for comparing director, Michael Bay, to Hitler. The incident took place over two years ago in an interview with Wonderland Magazine, so why all the fuss all of a sudden?
The interesting news today is not the fact that she was fired, but by whom. It wasn’t Michael Bay who fired the actress; it was actually big-wig Steven Spielberg who gave the orders.
As important and reputable as Michael Bay is in the movie world, Spielberg is the cream of the crop. Spielberg instructed Bay to fire the actress, and with his reputation and history as a movie god, one can say Fox probably won’t be working in any Spielberg films any time soon “ and that doesn’t leave her very many roles to choose from.
Spielberg is Jewish and had relatives who lost their lives during Hitler’s dictatorial hold on Germany during the Holocaust. So, the Hitler comment was apparently the last straw in an already fragile relationship between Fox and the Transformers franchise.
Shia LaBeouf, who stars in the monster-sized movies, is on Bay and Spielberg’s side. He told GQ magazine: Criticism is one thing. Then there’s public name-calling, which turns into high school bashing, which you can’t do. She started s**t-talking our captain.
Fox was replaced by Victoria Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whitely in Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon, hitting theatres July 4.
Hopefully Fox can learn it’s best to keep her negative thoughts to herself, and learn it’s safer not to bite the hand that feeds her.
