Director Michael Bay passive-aggressively taunts Megan Fox

wenn2460093
The war of words between Megan Fox and her Transformers director Michael Bay was a virtual bloodbath for months. There were a lot of different chapters to it (try the Michael Bay archives for a refresher), but some of the latest moves went down like this: Michael Bay slamming Megan as immature and ridiculous after she criticized the Transformers films; Megan saying Michael was like Napoleon and Hitler; unnamed Transformers crew members sending out (on Michael’s site) an open letter slamming Megan as a thankless, graceless, classless bitch; Michael sort-of apologizing for the letter and Megan sort-of apologizing for being a snotty brat.

In this month’s Nylon Magazine, Megan made another reference to Michael and their war of snotty, bitchy attrition. I saw this last week and didn’t say anything because I was all “meh, it’s barely newsworthy”. But I will note – Megan is incapable of shutting up about this crap. In the future, if she ever gets a question about the Michael Bay mess, she should really consider saying “no comment” or “he’s nice”. Alas, here’s what she said: “We say this sh-t to each other. It’s not that we’re buddies, but to get through making his movies, you have to give him sh-t. You can’t mentally and emotionally survive until you get some of that out, and he actually enjoys the process of having his actors bitch at him and him being able to bitch back at his actors.” She can’t “mentally and emotionally survive” without being a snotty little brat? For f-ck’s sake.

Anyway, Transformers 3 just got it’s release date, and Michael decided to announce it on his blog (announcement via Just Jared). But Michael is just a friggin’ immature as Megan, and he tried to bait her:

Director Michael Bay just updated his blog, announcing the release date of Transformers 3.

He writes, “Well its official: We have a great Transformers 3 story. The release date is now July 1st, 2011. Not 2012. Today is Day One. This morning started with an ILM meeting for five hours in San Francisco. Currently I’m flying with writer Ehren Kruger to Rhode Island to talk to Hasbro about new characters.”

Bay continued, “P.S. Megan Fox, welcome back. I promise no alien robots will harm you in any way during the production of this motion picture. Please consult your Physician when working under my direction because some side effects can occur, such as mild dizziness, intense nausea, suicidal tendencies, depression, minor chest hair growth, random internal hemorrhaging and inability to sleep. As some directors may be hazardous to your health, please consult your Doctor to determine if this is right for you. Michael”

This is in response to some of the Transformers crew slamming Megan and one of the film’s production assistants defending her.

Ugh. I think Michael was aiming for “light-hearted fun” but ended up creepy. Although, my first thought was that Michael is being very passive-aggressive towards Megan. Jennifer’s Body just bombed, she can’t carry a film that doesn’t have huge explosions, her movie-star status is in question, and she’s contractually obligated to work with a director she hates on a project she thinks is beneath her. Michael is kind of rubbing it in her face. In this situation, I have a feeling that an intelligent actress would simply suck it up and act like a professional. But I doubt Megan will – I’d imagine she’ll say something bitchy about this within one week.

    i think its funny! if she cant keep her trap shut, why should he have to.

  2. GatsbyGal says:

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: this reads as SUCH a lover’s quarrel. They’ve absolutely had sex before, of this I am 100% certain.

  3. nAynAy says:

    You go Michael Bay!!!!!!! All she is is a hot piece of ass.

  4. Leticia says:

    chest hair? do I read that correctly? is he accusing her of having chest hair? plot thickens…

  5. yeng says:

    these two just need to shut up. it’s ridiculous.

  6. Iggles says:

    GatsbyGal – Didn’t consider that angle before.. This theory may have legs..

  7. Julia says:

    Considering that her audition was to wash his car in a bikini, yeah, I’m pretty sure they’ve had sex before. What this reads as is: he used his position to give her a “sleep-with-me-for-the-part” deal and is enough of a jerk to let the world know she’s essentially his bitch. My guess is that she is/was willing to compromise her body but that some stardom has given her enough to at least try to smack him back verbally but is just coming off poorly because she is a moron.

  8. Enonymous says:

    Way to go taking the high road Michael Bay **eye roll**. I can excuse Megan Fox’s immaturity on her age but what is up with Michael Bay? Dude is like 50 years old (looks like it at least) and he is acting way more childish then Megan. Why is he so defensive to the point he has to really discrediting her rather then just simply ignoring her, no one takes what Fox has to say that seriously so it is not like she is endanger of ruining his career by blabbing about him on some interview.

    And Julia, I agree, that could be the case.

    Another @GatsbyGal: There was a very not-so-blind-item about the two of them getting it on in a limo before a red carpet walk for the first Transformers. It was on CDAN if I’m not mistaken. I just can’t remember if it was a mouth hug or the full deal.

  10. Praise St. Angie! says:

    “mouth hug”…hilarious!

  11. peanut-butter says:

    she’s a total twat. but still. this is getting annoying. who cares?

  12. nanster says:

    Gatsbygirl – your theory makes 100% sense to me.

  13. m says:

    I really don’t think this girl is the next Angelina at all. Megan is not other-wordly like Angelina was/is and she’s pretty but not excitingly beautiful where women of the world are proclaiming her the most beautiiful woman ever. Something about Megan Fox does not invite the world in or entice the world to want to root for her, like they did with Angelina(even when Ange started with Brad.)

    Megan doesn’t seem to have much depth. She just like looking at a pretty picture with the sound off and once you turn it on, you think it’s better to turn the sound back off again.

    She’s just okay, beautiful but lacking something to give her real longevity.

  14. viper says:

    Bay better make this girl suffer because that comment alone about Bay being like Hilter from her was beyond unnesessary and flat out discusting. And if she was stupid enough to sleep with him to get her part…then she’s gotta live with that doesnt she.

  15. DiMii says:

    Gatsbygirl: Great theory and sounds plausible, but I think it sounds more like unresolved sexual tension than a lover’s quarrel. Usually after a public lover’s quarrel, one side (the rejeced) acts crazy and the other side goes quiet (the rejector). (Think of Cam Diaz fighting with Justin Timberlake over Jessica Biel or Jen whining over Brad, who never says a word about her.) When both sides act nuts, I think the conflict is a sexual substitute.

  16. lolo says:

    She had a nose job. Can’t believe that any strong woman on this planet would do that and say and do such outrageous slutty things. She cries for attention. Kind of like Lady GaGa, except she’s talented and Megan F-cks isn’t.

  17. Sexy Rose says:

    Yes……..I think you are right about the sexual tension……
    I saw a picture of Megan Fox lookin at Michael Bay and you can clearly see she likes him……Although I haven’t seen one with him lookin at her clearly to see if it’s the same……Could be rejection love and lost thing……lol…..one timer sex…..

  18. He’s old enough to be her father…..he should have known better than sleepin wit a 23yr old actress……….
    it’s definitely a lover’s spat….although who rejected who?

    I don’t know the ins and outs of the feud between Megan and Michael Bay.
    What I know is: Megan complained about Bay treating her badly. Her fans and supporters will always defend her against him. They say he is a chauvinist ‘pig’ who treat women like sex objects. Is it true? Was it all Michael Bay’s fault? Why did Steven Spielberg ask him to fire Megan? He wouldn’t have an actor fired for no reason. She must have done something wrong. She seems to blame anybody but herself for her own demise.

Is it true? Was it all Michael Bay’s fault if things didn’t go well on the Transformers set? She might be partly to blame. That is probably why Steven Spielberg ordered him to fire her. Anyway there are always two sides to every story and what I only see as a clash of personalities has been blown out of proportion by the media.

  22. Sophie says:

    So Megan thought the Transformers movies were beneath her and the role she took didn’t match her ‘ talent ‘. Why did she sign on to the project in the first place?
