Megan Fox’s “friends” won’t let go of Michael Bay grudge

"Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" South Korea Premiere

Back during the heyday of the Michael Bay-Megan Fox War of Attrition, several commenters noted that Bay and Fox seemed to interacting like two spurned lovers, or two people who had f-cked for various reasons, and it was horrible, and now they were both pissed at each other. I agree – there’s absolutely no reason for both Megan and Michael Bay to still be talking about all of their bullsh-t, especially now that Megan is no longer attached to anything involving Bay, if they didn’t have some personal (sexual) history. Anyway, E! News ran a rundown of several rumors for why Bay and Fox split ways a week ago, and many of the “sources” are very Fox-friendly. Makes me think she’s still trying to get her “side” of the story out. She needs to let this sh-t go:

The truth may set you free, but it also might not get you invited back to Michael Bay’s movie set. Despite Megan Fox’s poor choice of words, the sentiment behind them was dead-on. Sources close to both Megan and Bay are confirming just how terrible the situation was for the smokin’ star and the hot-headed director.

Read on for the dirty behind-the-scenes deets:

“Megan only got $800,000 for Transformers 2,” claims a robot-flick insider very familiar with Fox’s personal and professional dealings. “I heard her say she only got $800,000 several times, and, I guarantee you, that’s why she didn’t do the third one. She wanted more money.”

While Megan may not have been paid equal to, say, Shia LaBeouf, another source tells us the money stuff isn’t true.

“She got paid way more than that,” says a close Fox friend and ally. “This was never about money. It’s always been how she was treated as a human being, it just wasn’t good.”

No discrepancy on that from our Transformers source—like, at all:

“[Megan] would constantly complain about having to go to work, she never wanted to do it,” dishes the franchise know-it-all. “Bay would constantly scream at her. He would scream at everyone, but especially Megan. Imagine a really, really bitchy grandmother on the set, and that’s what Michael Bay is like.”

Calls to reps for both Bay and Fox have not been returned, as yet.

M.B. certainly has the reputation around town of being very hard to work for, especially if you’re a woman. Our Transformers insider says Megan told him: “All [Bay] wants to do is shoot my ass and my tits, I hate him!'”

While Megan’s mouthing-off ways may helped seal her Transformers 3 fate, our Fox insider adds Megan would have “never” gone back, anyway. “Not the way she was treated.”

You know what, girlfriend, if Bay was that much of a pain to work for you’re better off, right?

“She’s incredibly happy right now,” adds Megan’s pal, “she just celebrated her birthday at Matsuhisa, she was more gorgeous than she’s ever been.”

As you should be, babe! On the bright side, aren’t the third flicks on these franchises even more hideous than the second? You won’t have any problem finding roles, we heard you just had two over the weekend!

[From E! News]

Oh, poor baby, she only got $800,000. For the first one – for the second she probably got at least $5 million, by my calculations. And double that if she had done the third film. Are we supposed to feel for her? “Oh, he only wanted to shoot my ass.” Do you have anything else to offer, Megan? Of course, Michael Bay has been out trying to reform his image too – letting it leak to The Sun that he was so concerned about Megan’s weight and how he wanted her to look healthy. So both of them need to let this sh-t go and understand that sometimes it’s just a bad, nasty f-ck and you’re never going to get that time back. Let it go! Which makes me wonder if Bay is still “auditioning” Rosie Huntington-Whiteley…

    Directors scream all the time , movies take time and a lot of money and if you have a horrible actress with an attitude. Is going to take more money and time and the studio is not going to like it , so of course he is going to scream.

  2. YT says:

    I thought it was $800,000 per movie. If it was that amount for Transformers 2 and less for Transformers 1, then there may not have been much money on the table for Transformers 3. She was under a contract option for Transformers 3, so she didn’t have wiggle-room for money.

    She’s not very bright, and he’s a douche. They should both shut up because neither is looking good.

  3. Hallelu says:

    For that kind of money, Michael Bay can curse me out, shoot my ass and tits (and I don’t even have tits), slap me around and make me starve. She really shouldn’t complain, cause she has it so much better than the rest of the world. Plus, if she was a demure sweet girl then I’d say ‘hey, treat her like a princess’ but she’s got a truck driver’s mouth and comes off like a bitch, so what do you expect?

  4. Oi says:

    I think those pictures tell us all we need to know. He can’t stand her for some reason, and she’s really dumb. Nothing new here.

  5. Iggles says:

    They definitely shagged. The dude looks like such a slimy LA creep. And (at the time) she was another starlet wannabe. They need to stop fighting in the press. We all know what it’s really about and we don’t care..

  6. snowball says:

    Definitely ex-bangers.

    She looks like someone who’d have sex with someone for a big movie part and he looks like someone who’d be more than happy to promise one for a blow job.

  7. Danielle says:

    Tits and ass? Really? What else does she bring to the table anyway?

  8. lucy2 says:

    They’re both skeevey and I’m sure some private nastiness went on between them in exchange for the role.
    If she only got $800K for the sequel, then she should blame her agent, not the director. $800K for a no talent whiner seems like a lot to us, but for a $200 mil. budget movie? Either that’s not true or she and her agent are dumbasses.
    LOL if she complained about him only wanting to shoot her T&A – that’s all she was there for, that’s the image she’s created for herself, and that’s all she is capable of.

  9. jover says:

    Does Megafarse really believe she was doing Shakespeare or Sophocles; the self-delusion and ingratitude are staggering.

  10. kia says:

    Megan, honey…I’m sorry you didn’t get the memo, but all you are IS tits and ass! And the sooner you drop the pretense of being more than that, the happier you’ll be. And so will everyone else, because they can just look at you without having to hear your asinine, idiotic opinions, so STFU already you moronic, vapid bimbo and just stand there and look pretty until you get old and we toss you aside for the next dumb skank. KNOW YOUR ROLE, HOOKER!

  11. NayNay says:

    Well really Megan, all you are is a hot pair of tits and ass. DEAL WITH IT!!!

  12. Iris says:

    This is my theory: Megan gave in and f*cked MB because she thought it would benefit her in some way. But when he didn’t give her the special treatment she thought she would receive – he probably really was a huge ass to her – she hated herself for having sex with him. Hence, her resentment towards the project and MB. THIS is the reason she felt “objectified”, and how the whole experience was “bad for her self-esteem”.

    Because let’s face it, she’s never had a problem being objectified – what with her lingerie ads, Maxim shoots, and her girl-on-girl movie scenes.

    comment of the day, right there…good one!

    @Hallelu “Michael Bay can curse me out, shoot my ass and tits (and I don’t even have tits), slap me around and make me starve.”

    nice to know your standards and self worth are so low. doesnt mean other actresses should go through that though most porbably do after all this is hollywood. no amount of money is worth that though i really think in this case its not true and its just they hate each other’s personalities (or lack thereof).

  15. Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

    Quick, Erdos! Solve this for me:

    So, the slick, exploitative L.A. him-bo huckster + would-be classical tragedian (hmm), does not equal mutual love and understanding?

    He’s had her, she’s been had, he’s had it and she’s not having it?

    ‘Wheel of Morality, turn, turn, turn. Tell us the lesson that we should learn.’

  16. nnn says:

    The other starlet didn’t have any problem with Bay.

    So Megan is not that innocent. She entered a shady business on her own will, accepted terms between the both of them, signed the contract and earned lots of money for it.

  17. Kim says:

    Michael Bay always comes across as very sleazy to me. I dont know him from Adam – this is just my impression of him from interviews Ive seen him on. He definitely comes across as a perverted egomaniac. Not sure if he himself is sleazy or he just knows sex sells so always goes for that in his movies or both.

  18. hey says:

    She was fired for her BIG MOUTH. End of story.

  19. Aitch says:

    yeah, they probably fucked.

  20. Bob says:

    He f’ed her when she was an extra on Bad Boys II, then found out she was underage (17) at the time it was filmed (2002). Bay gave her a starring role in Transformers to keep her mouth shut about it.

  21. Gabby says:

    She’s just a harmless, inconsequential sexpot-of-the-moment, but she arouses so many passionately hateful responses whenever there’s a topic about her.

    Why doesn’t Channing Tatum get this level of hatred? He’s a stupid, slutty, untalented douche, but unlike Megan, he actually gets lead roles. Oh, right – he’s a male. Males can’t be “slutty.”

  22. jen says:

    Totally agree, Gabby. This blog is entertaining at times, but it’s also incredibly misogynistic (and no, I’m not just referring to this particular Megan Fox post.) It’s very sad 🙁

  23. freckles says:

    I think Iris hit the nail right on the head.

  24. Hannah says:
