Megan Fox fired from ‘Transformers 3′ (update: she claims she quit)

"Transformers" Press Conference In Seoul

Not really, but sort of. Nikki Finke, who is one of the most in-the-know entertainment/industry gossips in Hollywood, is claiming that Megan Fox’s option for Transformers 3 was not picked up. Meaning that had Michael Bay wanted Megan Fox for the third movie, she would have been contractually obligated to do it, but if Bay was all “No, that little bitch called me Hitler” then “her option isn’t picked up.” Finke is calling this one a firing too, and she points to Megan’s unceasing criticism of Michael Bay as the main culprit.

I’ve just learned that Paramount won’t be picking up Megan Fox’s option on Transformers 3 — and that it was “ultimately” director Michael Bay’s decision. (So he gets his revenge for her remark comparing him to “Hitler”.) Right now Bay and writer Ehren Kruger et al are finishing up the script for the threequel and “giving Shia a new love interest makes more sense for the story,” an insider tells me. Bay will start casting immediately for the new female co-star. Let’s hear your suggestions, readers…

So did Megan deserve to get fired? I say yes. No actor/actress can expect to go around dissing a director and expect to work together as if nothing happened. Much less the egotistical Bay. But in Fox, he had met his match. Why, as recently as this week Megan was quoted as dissing Bay yet again.

In recent months she has shown off a more natural skin hue instead of her usual orange color — and blamed the Transformers helmer for her unhealthy tanning binge. “I had been tanning a lot so that Michael would be happy with my skin tone. Every spare moment of sun that was outside, I had to be in it,” the 24-year-old actress lamented in Allure magazine. “It’s not going to happen again because of the damage and the possible skin cancer.”

This is without doubt a huge blow to Megan’s career, already damaged by her inability to open Twentieth’s Fox Atomic film Jennifer’s Body last September. The R-rated feminist horror flick did a pathetic $6.8M weekend for a script by Juno’s Diablo Cody for a domestic total of only $16.2M and a worldwide take of just $31.5M. And talk about bad timing: right now she’s doing publicity for her role in Jonah Hex to be released June 18th. Guess what everyone will ask her?

[From Nikki Finke’s Deadline column]

After that, Finke recaps some of the notable exchanges between Megan and Bay in the neverending war of attrition. Like when Megan said Michael Bay was like Napoleon and he wants to create this insane, infamous mad-man reputation. He wants to be like Hitler on his sets, and he is. So he’s a nightmare to work for but when you get him away from set, and he’s not in director mode, I kind of really enjoy his personality because he’s so awkward, so hopelessly awkward. He has no social skills at all. And it’s endearing to watch him. He’s vulnerable and fragile in real life and then on set he’s a tyrant.” Like the open letter three crew members sent out about Megan and how she’s “the queen of talking trailer trash and posing like a porn star” and “a thankless, classless, graceless, and… unfriendly bitch”. Michael Bay later apologized, sort of, for the letter and mumbled something about looking forward to working with her on Transformers 3. Ha!

Of course, Finke couldn’t put all of the sh-t that went down between Megan and Michael Bay. There was a lot of sh-t, for real. In my mind, Megan started it. She spent a significant amount of time during the Transformers 2 promotional tour slamming the movie in general and Michael Bay in particular, saying stuff like “But unless you’re a seasoned veteran, working with Michael Bay is not about an acting experience” and “I can’t sh-t on this movie [Transformers 2] 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.”

Now, even though I think Megan is a f-cking idiot, I have to wonder if Bay really made the right call here. Sure, she was (and is) unprofessional and dumb, but she was also one of the big draws of the franchise. What am I saying? Michael Bay could easily find some NEW pretty young thing and all of the teenage boys will be salivating for the new girl.

UPDATE: Megan wants us to know that she was NOT fired, she quit. Her rep tells People Magazine: “Megan Fox will not be starring in Transformers 3. It was her decision not to return. She wishes the franchise the best.” Oh, so it was her decision? Honestly, it could have been. It seems like the kind of moronic move Megan would make: “I’m gonna quit the franchise that made me a star and paid me millions of dollars because I don’t wanna work with Hitler. Wah.”

    I would have at one point been a believer of “don’t crap where you eat” until I had this one boss from hell… This guy may actually be Hitler re-incarnated… so it is possible for a person to be a “boss” and be the biggest jerk on the planet.

  2. Vee says:

    Karma!

  3. Dawn says:

    HA!HA!

  4. YT says:

    *rotflmao* It is what she deserves after spending so much time trashing Michael Bay and the Transformers movies. Since she will no longer be working with Michael Bay, she should be a happy little fox. Good luck on finding sweet, thoughtful directors who will cater to her inflated ego. Are people lining up to hire her now?

  5. mslewis says:

    Nobody had ever heard of Megan Fox before “Transformers” so, really, she shot herself in the foot (after putting it in her big mouth). As those three production people said, she is an graceless, ungrateful b!tch and she doesn’t appreciate the big chance she has been given. There are countless young, pretty girls in L.A. just dying for a break. I’m sure whatever woman they put in this movie will be just fine and will get tons of attention. Let’s see what Ms. Fox does with her career after this. If that “Hex” movie is a bomb you can just erase her name from Hollywood because she will be totally done.

  6. sonola trip says:

    Shia LaBeouf — pay attention. This is what happens when you slam your director.

  7. Vi says:

    i’m sure she doesn’t give a rats ass. who knows maybe she was saying all that stuff so he wouldn’t pick up her option

  8. Trillion says:

    I’m sure everything she’s saying about him is the truth. Maybe she thinks she’s better off not getting picked up. I’ve heard some awful things about Bay from former people from his sets. And his movies are giant shiny shit balls. It’s so depressing that they are actually popular. Yikes.

  9. Fluffy Kitten Tail says:

    In that one pic, he resembles a short haired Fabio.

  10. jover says:

    There is a God after all. Great,Maybe all the trashing of MegaFarse on this site and others had some small effect; the public is tired of this brainless, ungrateful b**ch. I’m betting that there really is a God and Jonah Hex bombs to; without a lot of nudity, how many hormone challenged teen boys and frat boys want to see Micky Rourke’s plastic glossy mug on the screen. I guess Megafarse better get used to saying things like “Do you want another cup of coffee with those waffles,” or “How long do I have to be on my knees without a break.” Karma is delightful.

  11. westcoaster says:

    Why do the both of them sound like a couple that ended their “relationship” badly? It seems the insults got a little too personal

  12. Melanie says:

    How many millions did she lose? Plastic faced fug. Welcome to obscurity Megzy!

  13. original kate says:

    foxy is looking a little lindsay lohan lately – kind of orange, kind of dirty, tired & bitchy. that can’t be good.

  14. Chico says:

    Is anyone surprised? She called the director Hilter. I’m surprised it took this long.

    And, Shia should watch it for trashing Speilberg/Lucas . . . IMO he’s just as replaceable.

  15. Mimi says:

    BUHHH BYE DIARREIA FOX

  16. benny says:

    She shouldn’t bite the hand that feeds her, so she obviously has poor professional judgment.

    But I think everything she’s said about Bay and his movies are true.

  17. LolaBella says:

    Not surprised he fired her. She blew (hee hee) her chances with him when she dissed him in the press and wounded his wittle ego.

    Maybe she rubbed off on Shia hence his recent comments about Steven Speilberg.

    The moral of the story, don’t bite the hand that feeds you; especially if you aren’t established or talented.

    Michael Bay should go with Summer Glau as a replacement for Megan. Summer comes with a built in fanbase from her Firefly/Serenity, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles and Dollhouse roles.

    The Transformers fanboys would love her.

  18. gloaming says:

    I love Nikki Finke’s blog!

    Shia Le whatsisface did more or less the same thing as the Megatron a few days ago when he slagged off Indiana Jones 4 (rightfully so) and Transformers 2 (even more rightfully so) albeit, not so personally and more tactfully. I wonder if he’s being fired…….
    Maybe not since he can act.

    But I love it when actors are honest about the Directors they work with. They should be applauded for it.
    Remember Kate Winslet slagging James Cameron off for his dictatorial ways on Titanic? Poor oul’ Kate had to write a letter of apology.

    Oh well. Now Michael can look forward to choosing a new starlet to come and wash his (ahem) “car” for him.

    Screw Bay and as Trillion so eloquently put it – “his giant shiny shitballs”
    People paid their hard earned cash to see those shitballs!

  19. Mouse says:

    Great example of her “refreshing honesty”/”tactless brain farts” landing her in hot water. No doubt about the fact that Bay’s a misogynistic piece of crap and a demanding director, but there’s a time to speak and be honest and there’s a time to keep your trap shut, Megan dear. Hope this helps to teach you the difference.

  20. NayNay says:

    HA HA HA HA HA. Good for that talentless Bitch

  21. Ron says:

    This may have worked out exactly as she wanted it to. She didn’t want to have to work with Tyrant Bay again, so she dissed him publicly in hopes of he option not beng picked up. I will tell you, I have never heard anyone say anything nice about Micheal Bay privately ever. Not once.

  22. hatsumomo says:

    FizXgirl, yeah, but even I have enough sense to know when to shut my trap and take it for a thirty million dollar paycheck and extended ‘career options’.

  23. sunnyjyl says:

    @Westcoaster, I’m with you.

  24. Shay says:

    Diablo Cody, Megan Fox, can anyone say the phrase ‘flash in the pan?’ any faster?
    What Megan Fox’s mistake is: telling viewers what a film is. Viewers implicitly know that anything Bay directs (just like director Apatow) is never about acting. Sure, it’s worse to diss a director, but Fox’s condescension to the filmgoer is just as bad.

  25. Jaxx says:

    Good Bye Megan Big Mouth–hello, your career is over. Couldn’t have been more deserved.

  26. James says:

    Get over yourself, Michael Bay. YOu suck as a director anyway.

    At least Megan Fox is young and beautiful.

  27. Aussie Mama says:

    See what happens when a bit of surgery and a big break is given to a nobody?
    A massive head can grown, instead of gratefulness, very sad Megan!

  28. QB says:

    When you have no talent , you shut your mouth and hope the director does not get mad with you.

    She is a horrible actress and unprofessional. She needs to learn not to mess with people in power positions in hollywood, if she wasnts a career.

    She tryied to sound cool but she sounded unprofessional , good look finding other people willing to pay you millions of dollars for your shitty acting and posibily of you taking shit about them.

  29. xxodettexx says:

    @ LOLABella, i think that’s actually a great idea! i may be a girl but i would totally geek out to a summer/shia pairing, and i may actually watch ONE of the transformer movies for once, hah!

  30. maria says:

    Michael Bay is gross. he looks like one of the sleazy middle-aged male models on the Just For Men hair dye boxes.

  31. Boombeeba says:

    She ain’t so purty no more… & I have a feeling this’ll possibly trigger more plastic surgeries culminating in the premier of CatWoman 2

  32. GatsbyGal says:

    He tapped the hell outta Megan Fox. Then they had a bitchy war of words and Bay decided the drama wasn’t worth banging her. So he’s going to find another young girl to sleep with–err, I mean cast in Transformers 3.

  33. carrie says:

    too bad! her ass was the best part of movies!!

  34. Missfit says:

    Everyone is sooo right! She is obviously not a great actress and she hasn’t done many good projects. I heard she turned down a good one, a while back, I forgot what it was. Then in reality, lots of bosses can be douche bags, (even at a grocery store, to an office store or what not). I agree that she should have kept her mouth shut considering she isn’t doing that many movies and Transformers is what made her and she could have made lots more. Maybe she should have waited till he was officially done making the movies, who knows how many more he would have made. And people are right, LehBoooof lol just made some comments recently, uh oh! lol Pouting and baby talking in every movie isn’t acting or going to get her far, then again, she is very pretty, so she just might get far anyway, just on her looks, not talent.

  35. Bob K says:

    I knew Michael Bay, woudn’t let this trollop get away with her crazy rant.

    I have deep respect for this man.

  36. Elise says:

    Shia’s next, how can you say anything negative about Spielberg in Hollywood,when Spielberg is one of the most important people in the film industry. I don’t get it.

  37. WTF?!? says:

    Yeah, James, “young and beautiful” are really important, lasting qualities.

  38. ligeia says:

    he looks like a creepy sleazeball in every single picture. i’m going to say she’s probably better off now.

  39. Dan says:

    I think Megan Fox doesn’t realize the mistake she made here, I agree here that Transformers made a name for herself and blew it. I don’t believe she can make it on her own, after seeing the movie “Jennifer Body’s” that’s the most funny horror movie ever,I think she should apologize and try to fix her reputation, if she cares about that. here’s suggestion list if the director goes forward without Megan Fox:

    Katy Perry
    Blake Lively
    Kim-kardashian
    Nicole Scherzinger
    Laura Vandervoort
    Zooey Deschanel ( I found her very attractive in the movie Yes Man! with JiM Carey and very funny movie)
    Keeley Hazell
    Yvonne Strahovski (Sorry Chuck lol) I think she will be great as a replacement.

  40. skibunny says:

    She looks amazing!

  41. Trillion says:

    How and why would anyone have “deep respect” for Micheal Bay? Yeesh.

  42. snowball says:

    Sharon Stone to play Shia’s love interest? After all, she said she gets hit on by a lot of 20 year olds. ;)

  43. Johnny Schwartz says:

    I don’t understand why people are harshing out on Megan for speaking the truth about Mr. Bay. I mean sure its not the smartest career move perhaps but you have to give her some props for speaking honestly. That may be a sign of stupidity or it might be something so foreign to Hollywood that no one recognizes it: integrity. Jennifer’s Body was a good movie, yes it didn’t do decent business but will still be watched when the Transformers crap is long forgotten, what?

  44. Sylentwolf says:

    Wow! Big question now is, who is going to be Sam’s “New” love-interest?!

    She was an incredible part of the two movies and now their just going to “write-off” her character.

    For all of you who wanted more robots and less of that “Human Element” to the story are going to be very disappointed.

    I’m willing to bet anyone’s Salary or Job for that matter that neither the ‘Dinobots’ nor ‘Unicron’ will ever be in this film (maybe even any film for that matter). ‘Unicron’ is too big of an element to be in the sequel, and the ‘Dinos’ are too irrelevant in today’s world. I’m guessing that it will be based on the mythology of “Energon” and the “Life” of any ‘Transformer’ on Earth as we know it. How will the “Transformers” continue to live on Earth without an energy source to live off of? According to Hasbro’s CEO, “You’re going to see that great core mythology brought to the fore, and Michael is hard at work at making this a reality and we’re very excited about it,” Hasbro’s head Brian Goldner also quoted Mr. Bay stating, “What we’re really doing is getting back to some of the core character development and storytelling. And I think there’s some elements of the core story that the filmmakers, Michael in particular wanted to tell…” With that said, this sequels cast includes Shia LaBeouf, Megan Fox, John Malkovich, Frances McDormand, John Turturro, Patrick Dempsey, Ken Jeong, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson, Ramon Rodriguez, Kevin Dunn, Julie White, and Kym Whitley, they really are focusing on character placement and development. It will be pretty difficult for Bay & Spielberg to come up with something historic as well as original. Possibly by now everyone has read the “Leaked Script” that was release immaturely late last year and everyone should know how that story was told, but everyone should also keep in mind that not everything presented from a “Leaked Script” is considered a complete fake; Nevertheless, that most of what is said is completely useless. This same leaked script does point out an issue that the humans are revolting against the same “Transformers” that have turned up here on Earth, which coincidently has been expressed and shown online with pictures depicting city walls and garbage cans spray-painted with crossed-out “Autobot” or “Decepticon” logos depicted in a circle with the words “Go Home” sprayed below. Many of you believe stories related to the comics and cartoons may seem too “Old,” while others may believe the stories that are original and/or new may not seem too “Traditional.” Either way, Hasbro, Paramount, Michael Bay, and Steven Spielberg can’t make everyone happy at once. It will take several creative ideas to come together that will touch all generations. Basicly, from everything I’ve read (real or not) and stated here, Transformers 3 will be very simple (similar to Part 1) and less complex (similar to Part 2) where the storyline will be easy to follow, more understanding, over and above with dialog between the Humans and Robots; which will return with improvements and essentially become more in depth. By just adding a few newbie’s (Autobots / Decepticons) as well as bringing back all “survivors” from the last two films, I believe this film could be more epic than the other two combined; But, I believe that it will regrettably just resemble its predecessors and fail after its first opening weekend; Especially now that Megan Fox is not returning as Mikaela Banes. The Transformers 3 story will suffer from dehydration while falling victim to an aging cast that will somehow bring some type of human emotion to the forefront.

  45. Visitor says:

    Why all the hate? You got to love Megan for saying what she thinks. Really refreshing in Hollywood. Angelina Jolie used to be like this but has become just like the rest of them now. Megan is about the only one left who will truly say what she thinks of other people. Good for her. But look she is being punished for taking against one of “the men” of Hollywood. Kind of makes me sick that Hollywood is still so controlled by men and young starlets have to say only nice things about them to ensure their jobs. Unfortunately we really haven’t come a long way baby.

    Me thinks that some of the “hate” comes from jealous people.

  46. Boombeeba says:

    Lol @ Dan suggesting Kim Kardashian as an appropriate replacement

  47. Aussie Mama says:

    it won’t matter, shia la bouf was the star of the franchise, didn’t even notice her.

  48. Pete says:

    LOL @ maria.

  49. dizzybenny says:

    THERE IS A GOD!!!!!

  50. lway says:

    She can’t act – i am glad she’s off. I hope Shia gets a boyfriend in the next Transformers. I hope him and Bumblebee hit it off ……….. tired of these airhead girls trying to act.

    The Transformers have more personality than (scroll back up for this doddo’s name) ….. uh, Megan has…

  51. buzzaroo says:

    I actually think it’s a great time for Megan to leave the franchise. Transformers 1 was awesome, transformers 2 was boring as hell (all special effects, no story.)

    I don’t believe Megan’s career will be damaged by not doing Transformers 3. Her part in Transformers 2 was already cut right down.

    I’m no Fox fan, by any means, but it seems to be ok for Michael Bay to be a controlling, exploitive pig from all accounts. Didn’t he make her strip and wash his car while auditioning or something? And how about the comment Megan made about Bay needing her to sunbathe so she’d be extra tanned?

    The point is, he may well have been a “hitler” on set to her, he may have given her a very hard time and she calls him out on it and we hate on HER?

  52. Lin95 says:

    If I were paid the amount of money Miss Fox was I would suck it up…..I’ve worked plenty of jobs that were terrible with awful bosses….but in the real world you have to work to survive week to week sometimes….so you shut up and deal with it
    He made her…..she should have been grateful for that….I liked Jennifers Body actually, but she sounds terrible in the Jonah Hex trailers…if it weren’t for John Malkovich I wouldn’t even give it a pass

  53. nycmom10024 says:

    After a slew of recent stories about Hollywood/famous men and their sexual exploits, what if her comments were designed to piss him off just so would have an easy out.

    She’s a pretty girl, probably hit on often by powerful men and they may not like being rejected.

    We all have an opinion about “the bad guy” when their vices are exposed, but we do not defend those who speak up.

    Just saying… just because she appears to be obnoxious doesn’t mean she is wrong. What if everyone of the women that Tiger, Jessie, pick a politician or director hit on had spoken up and trashed them when they were first approached? Would we be trashing them or the big guy?

  54. Lita says:

    I don’t get the “she should shut her pretty mouth, be grateful and lap the mysogynist’s crap up” attitude? Anyone else, femme standing up against a powerful a-hole almost characature-like bastard manbot, would be given all support in le world. M Bay is, by all credible accounts, a massive pig. Don’t get it; the world seems all topsy today. Also agree that I’d pike on Trans3 – even my 8yr old son is all meh about it. Like being in Batman4 .. seemed like a good idea .. but ..

  55. cflicted says:

    .
    Millians of people with out jobs and those who struggle daily with shitty mean bosses everyday to help pay the bills, and she’s going to critisize and complain about a possible deuchey director that gave her a huge film role.? That just screams arrogance and inflated ego to me.

    If he was so terrible, she should have left after the first Transformers, Or even before it started, have not agreed to work for him. So much for her having integrity.

    I say good riddance, but who knows perhaps this is all just a publicity stunt to stir up controversy/publicity for the francise.

  56. YT says:

    She couldn’t quit. She was under option contract, and they could use their option to put her in T3. She had no choice. If they did not use their option to put her in T3, they essentially fired her.

    If she can’t act, plays the diva on set, and trashes the director and the franchise in public (even if correct), then she deserves to be let go. Dumb moves on her part.

  57. cflicted says:

    Well I’m all for her standing up if Michael Bay was really that terrible to her, but it just sounds like he expects a lot of work from his actors and is meticulous. She’s just dumb and full of herself. Maybe she should have delt with him personally instead of spouting off publicly about him.

  58. NayNay says:

    I call B.S. on megan stating she quit the movie. I think it is a desperate move on her part to try to ‘save face’. Unfortunately, I highly doubt anyone believes that she quit. She has no talent whatsoever. The only thing she has going on is that she is a hot piece of ass. Yeah, well there are many other girls out there who are also hot, so that might not last too long for her. Next step…

    Playboy or a porno.

  59. Si says:

    I bet they slept together at one point

  60. Bam Bam says:

    I agree with Buzzaroo, maybe this franchise appears going straight to hell anyway so it could be a good move not be associated with hi. First movie was so-so, the second I couldn’t stand to watch and have zero interest in the 3rd.

  61. Amoosed says:

    BS on the update. If she quit she would have told the world first – not wait for the news to be announced.

  62. fizXgirl314 says:

    I think it’s a smart idea to quit. This series looks pretty terrible… I saw the first one and dont’ remember a SINGLE thing from it… If I could quit my current job (there are some reasons I can’t) I would be so out of there. If money is the only issue, then it’s not worth working with someone you can’t stand. I mean, my life has downgraded several levels in quality because of this job. I’m just saying, if it’s as bad as my situation, I’d say good for her for quitting… but I highly doubt it is quite this bad :(

  63. Iggles says:

    I never watched either movie. I could tell it was a shit franchise a mile away. Don’t really care, but I think it’s definitely karma for Megan!

  64. Iris says:

    if I were forced to wash the director’s car in a bikini while he filmed it, and told to get a tan.. I’d quit, too.

  65. Iggles says:

    Iris – She wasn’t forced. She had free will. She decided getting the job was more important.

    Also she didn’t quit. She was fired..

  66. amanda says:

    This whole thing between Michael Bay and Megan Fox is like a slap fight between two giant douchebags.

  67. original kate says:

    “Why all the hate? You got to love Megan for saying what she thinks…Me thinks that some of the “hate” comes from jealous people. ”

    if that is the criteria for “loving” someone i guess we should all love the klan or hitler for saying what they think. if not i guess we’re just jealous, right, visitor?

    lamest argument ever.

    +++++++++++++

    I have the boss from hell right now but I’m not dumb enough to openly diss him to other people. I’m looking for other jobs or the possibility to change departments. But until I’m gone I will publicly stay mum.

  69. kim says:

    pretty girl, just a real bad actress.

    give her a pixar movie, so she doesn’t have to walk and talk at the same time.

    Not that the transformer movies were/are any good anyways . . .but she just didn’t help them.

  70. chris says:

    I’m quite happy she’s leaving that hostile working environment. Michael Bay sounds like a real dick and I just hate that his movies are going to do well at the box office because of the type of crap he creates that fanboys love.

  71. Duh says:

    Oh Megan I love your nuttiness.

    Honey you can’t quit something that you’ve not been hired to do.

    So if Michael Bay & Paramount didn’t offer you the role again and didn’t have you under contract for the role – you cannot quit.

    It’s like me quitting the US Supreme Court. Yes I didn’t work there, was never hired there but hey I quit the SCOTUS.

  72. Camille says:

    Hahahaha! Hilarious!

  73. Shells says:

    Which is it? Did she get booted or did she quit? Or, she got booted and is lying to save face? Confusing.

    • Sophie says:

      Shells,
      I asked myself the same question: was she fired or did she quit? I’d say she claimed it was her own decision to leave the Transformers franchise to save face. I’m sure she was fired. I’m not saying it is true but she might have been uncooperative. Maybe she didn’t want to do what he expected from her because it was too much for her. If it was the case, she is in the wrong job. She is not cut out to be the next Angelina Jolie. I think her lack of dedication to the job and professionalism were the real reason for her dismissal from the Transformers franchise, not her poor choice of words. Michael Bay is not perfect but he gave her the chance to have a career in Hollywood. Not all aspiring young actresses get that opportunity.

  74. Sally says:

    @kim:

    Nooo! Keep her away from Pixar!!

  75. MissyA says:

    I’m sure Michael Bay is a self-absorbed, chauvinistic, douche bag.

    I’m also equally sure that Megan f*cked him for the part.

    I’m sure there’s some clever euphemism about hands and feeding here. . . but, at least we won’t have anymore faux-intellectual interviews anymore.

  76. Lia says:

    Gemma Arterton could easily replace Fox in the movie. They look alike.

    @ Kate….I think there’s a big difference between Fox’s rants against Bay and far-right, extremist hate speech. I don’t mean to be a bitch here, but using the Klan and Hitler as examples to shut someone up, prove your point or prove that you’re not jealous is a bit lame. Especially considering the kind of images and emotions that those kinds of groups/ideals conjure up in a lot of people.
