Megan Fox compares ‘Transformers’ director to Napoleon, Hitler

Alright, there’s a lot of information to cover, just because there seems to be something going on between Megan Fox and her Transformers director Michael Bay. “Something” being “an endless war of attrition between two brats”. Back when Megan Fox was on her neverending publicity tour for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Megan gave an interview to Entertainment Weekly. In it, she was asked about the possibility of a third film for the franchise, to which Megan replied: “Sure. I mean, I can’t sh-t on this movie 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. And once you realize that, it becomes almost fun because you can be in the moment and go, ‘All right, I know that when he calls Action! I’m either going to be running or screaming, or both.’”

After that snottiness (I liken it to sh-tting on the hand that feeds her), Michael Bay got a question about Megan’s criticisms while being interviewed by the Wall Street Journal. Michael replied: “Well, that’s Megan Fox for you. She says some very ridiculous things because she’s 23 years old and she still has a lot of growing to do. You roll your eyes when you see statements like that and think, “Okay Megan, you can do whatever you want. I got it.” But I 100% disagree with her… Nobody in the world knew about Megan Fox until I found her and put her in Transformers. I like to think that I’ve had some luck in building actors’ careers with my films.”

Megan’s next move? Revealing a story about how she was cast in Transformers – she told a British newspaper that Michael Bay had her come over to his house and he “made her wash his Ferrari while he filmed her.” Megan also told the journalist that she didn’t know what happened to that footage. Michael Bay had to publicly admit he had no idea where the footage went either (yeah, right).

So the new battle in the Fox v. Bay war is Megan’s new interview in Wonderland Magazine. This is the same interview where Megan claimed she was “schizophrenic” – and now the Wonderland site has released more of the interview. Megan was asked about Michael Bay and she uses these words to describe him: Napoleon, Hitler, insane, nightmare, awkward, fragile and tyrant. Oh, God.

We are stuck in a trailer with the many people who are involved in producing the shoot (stylists, publicist, assistants, etc.) but we take over one side of the trailer and they stay out of our way.

Megan, who doesn’t take off her sunglasses for the entire interview, picks up a copy of Interview Magazine. One with a dewy cover photograph of Zac Efron, an individual she likes to make fun of, she says, with some regularity.

Megan Fox: “He’s beautiful. He’s the next Elizabeth Taylor. I’m just kidding. I just like to make fun of him. I know Zac. He knows that I make fun of him out of love. Everything I say in interviews I say to his face in person. I try it on him and get his reaction and then I say it publicly.

Marshall Heyman: So you’ve told him he’s the male Elizabeth Taylor?
MF: I just came up with that, but I’ll tell him that in the future. This picture made me think of it. It was like White Diamonds.

[Megan speaks nasally, like she has a chronic sinus infection. Her statements are often spoken in the form of a question. They tend to lilt upwards.]

MH: I’m going to start with some questions my brother has for you. The first one: what are your most favourite and least favourite things about working with Michael Bay?
MF: God, I really wish I could go loose on this one. He’s 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. Shia and I almost die when we make a Transformers movie. He has you do some really insane things that insurance would never let you do.

MH: So it’s a big difference from your television series, Hope And Faith?
Megan laughs. The first of many big guffaws during our interview. It pleases me no end that I can make one of the hottest women in the world laugh. Repeatedly.
MF: It’s a big difference from that.

MH: Is there anything about Hope And Faith that’s the same?
MF: Other than there’s always a tiny blonde around?

MH: Here’s another one from Andrew. How did you feel about presenting with Michael Bay at the MTV Movie Awards?
MF: I hate being looked at. And when I’m on stage it’s clear that I’m being stared at by everyone and that’s my worst nightmare. My only goals when I go on stage are to not vomit, trip or have uncontrollable diarrhea. If I accomplish those three things, I don’t care what else happens.

MH: Have you ever been in a situation when you vomit, trip or have uncontrollable diarrhea?
MF (Laughing): No but I get really paranoid that something horrible is going to happen.

[From Wonderland]

Why does this girl still have a career? Seriously, fanboys, her boobs aren’t that awesome. And her personality is ridiculous. I have a honest-to-God question for all of the people who like Megan… doesn’t her stupidity and asinine behavior just destroy whatever fantasy you have about this girl?

    God she is so stupid!

    I want her, Jon Gosselin and Chris Brown on a Grayhound bus whose destination is off a cliff!

  2. lilred says:

    She makes me want to smack her senseless…oh wait, somebody already beat me to it.

  3. Angie says:

    I don’t understand how she can say she doesn’t want to be looked at but then go and do the photoshoots she does, or pose on the red carpet in the outfits that she wears. Obviously she wants the attention, otherwise she’d pull a Meryl and show up in a gunny sack and laugh at all the people making a big deal about who wears what couture. Not that she’s ever worthy of imitating Meryl in the slightest degree, of course.

  4. ruru says:

    Aaaaand the Meagan Fox drinking game continues! Remember, it’s double shots when she makes a lame cocktease-ish comment.

  5. Jazz says:

    When is this girl going to shutup??!

  6. ash says:

    “He has no social skills at all.”

    Really? What’s that like?!

  7. yeng says:

    just make her disappear from the industry already. can’t stand her attention whoring.

  8. Vibius says:

    First sign someone is a moron. Calling someone a Nazi.

    Was she under contract for a Transformers 3? Could she be looking for an out?

  9. Iggles says:

    Omg! She is such an idiot!

    She’s so overrated and looks completely fake. I can’t wait for “the next big thing” to blow her out the water…

  10. Susette says:

    Since her Jennifer’s Body movie is going to flop, the Transformers gig is the only thing this no-talent, shit-for-brains really has going on. She could easily be replaced in that franchise. Bashing the director isn’t a smart thing to…oh, right, never mind.

  11. Benjamin says:

    Maybe I’m in an incredibly limited minority, but I’m slowly beginning to warm to her. She looks like she’s got this camp vixen thing going on in Jennifer’s Body, and I’m always down for that.

    Added to that, she at least honestly (albeit stupidly) says what’s on her mind. Sure, she’s got a bad case of Heiglitis, but she knows she’s hardly making art, and I’m glad she’s not trying to pretend otherwise. After all, Transformers barely even qualifies as entertainment, let alone art.

  12. Michelle says:

    Keep biting the hand that feeds you, Megan.

    And for the love of all things holy, please stop allowing plastic surgeons to eff with your face. You once were beautiful and fresh looking, now you look like every other jaded plastic skank in Hollywood. When she’s really jacked up her remaining good looks, see how many roles she gets. No one hires her for her exquisite acting abilities.

  13. Naomi says:

    Would someone please tell Megan to STFU!!!!!!!!!!!

  14. Zoe says:

    It’s not even the stupidity and grandstanding that’s so bad. It’s the sheer arrogance behind her comments.

    Isn’t ‘delusions of grandeur’ a mental illness she can run with instead of schizophrenia?

  15. mila says:

    @ Benjamin- I have the same feeling about her. Sure, she’s stupid but at least she’s not one of those plastic stars that say how wonderful was working on the set with so many wonderful people and how playing such a deep character enriched their souls. She’s honest and she’s not a hypocrite. But women who speak their mind are often hated

  16. LuLu says:

    This girl needs to go back to where ever she came from!!! I cannot stand her and her lame attempts to be shocking with her stupid comments!! Someone please remove this woman’s vocal cords!!

  17. Susette says:

    “But women who speak their mind are often hated”

    It’s not speaking her mind that makes people hate her. It’s the ridiculous drivel that her mind produces.

  18. Kaboom says:

    It must have been a woman like Megan that inspired the “should be seen, not heard” adage some centuries back …

  19. Trey says:

    Ha. Love the catty comment that she speaks “…like she has a chronic sinus infection.” It’s just what happens when you do coke on a regular basis.

  20. umabrasileira says:

    Verbal diarrhea…. of the really bad ones….

  21. viper says:

    Fine I will do transformers megan can whine and wail and be the ungratful little whore. Good god she really has no clue.

  22. original kate says:

    “I hate being looked at.”

    oh, please. if this dumb bitch were alone in a redwood forest she would try to make sure the trees were watching her. kind of like this:

    megan: ok, trees, did i ever tell you about how i’m bisexual? it’s true!
    trees: *putting branches over their ears*
    megan: i am also schizophrenic! i know cause i read a book about marilyn. trees, it’s true!
    trees: shut up! shut up!
    megan: don’t you think i’m hot, trees? everyone hates a woman who speaks her mind, like michael “napolean” bay! did i tell you about him?
    trees: can someone please chop us down now?

  23. Persistent Cat says:

    I like how the interviewer said all her comments sound like questions. Only stupid girls talk that way. Makes me crazy when you’re in a store’s changing room and there’s a bunch of stupid girls in the room next to you and they talk that way and you can’t leave, you have to listen.

  24. Kerri says:

    @ original Kate – nuff said

    i’m laughing so hard tears are coming out of my eyes.

    can you guys ban her like you did with speidi – just a thought – PLEASE!!!!!

    so ridiculous, biting the hand that feeds you.

  25. karli says:

    to answer your question, kaiser: i roll my eyes at some of the things she says, but i still like her. she might not come off as an intelligent girl, but she’s entertaining… and beautiful.

    and persistent cat: sometimes girls just act bratty in groups because it’s fun, like when you’re with your friends and you’re just being silly… doesn’t mean they’re dumb. have you been on a college campus lately? very accomplished young girls put on silly public personas… it’s fun sometimes

  26. Firestarter says:

    LOL@Orig. Kate! I love your post! I can visualize the whole scenario!

    Poor trees! : (

  27. DK says:

    She’s gorgeous in these pictures, looks a bit like angelina but much prettier which is saying a lot. She says dumb things, but she’s not a terrible actress, she was fine in transformers, more than held her own with the other actors. Her tattoo was a bad choice, she will always look trashy because of it. She shoots her mouth off a lot and has a sense of entitlement that might kill her career before it ever takes off. Just my opinion on her.

  28. Jess says:

    Ick! Michael Bay is a perv…sadly a perv with alot of hollywood power.

    Im pretty sick of this chick BUT it made me smile when she was talking shit abt him…GOD! He didnt try to justify her “audition” washing his car…

    I would have said FU Bay! Bet she took a “silkwood” bath after that…GROSS!!!

  29. Enonymous says:

    I like her for some reason and I would love to know her secret to how she got her lips so plumbed up without looking like it was obviously enhanced by a surgeon. Her lips looked very thin couple of years ago and now they look a lot bigger but still remain natural looking.

  30. hate fox says:

    Her career strategy is basically copying Angelina. I saw a pic of her in high school; she had blond hair, thin lips, and no tattoos. Now, she looks like an Angie clone. WHY? Plus, she says things that resemble what Angie has said: I like sex, I’m a bisexual, etc. Except Angie has never trashed any of her directors. Fox makes Angie look smart by comparison. How sad.

  31. I choose me says:

    Beautiful pics, she looks stunning in those photos imo. Again, I go back and forth in my opinion of her. I don’t think everything she says is dumb but I wish she wasn’t such a try-hard.

  32. ComeON says:

    STFU *eyeroll*

  33. Vee says:

    I hate when someone gets compared to Hitler you can’t be Hitler unless you’ve killed 6 million people and controlled a country. People (i.e. Megan) who make this comparison are completely retarded.

  34. Catherine says:

    Hitler? Does she even know anything about Hitler to make such a comparison? She would keep her ignorant mouth shut if she did. What a fool she is.

  35. MC says:

    She’s a stupid beeyoch who can’t go away fast enough.

  36. CeeCee says:

    For whatever reason, the people who really are annoyed by this girl, keep reading her interviews. What do you want her to be? You want her to be modest and meek? Heck no. She’s supposed to be the vixen, like Monroe was the sexpot, like Streep is the professional, like Diaz is the goof. She’s not the most talented actress out there. She’s not the smartest person to ever give an interview but she gives good soundbites and creates a stir and this is what the movie studios, her manager, her agent, her accountant and maybe even herself, want. There are more “credible” actors or celebrities out there who do and say far more ridiculous things. It’s just still hard, for whatever reason, to accept that you’re getting exactly what you expect from a girl who’s playing the precocious, naughty, young vixen.

  37. Kevin says:

    Benjamin, thanks for posting something a little bit different to consider. HMMMMMMM well I tried but I still no likey. But it was nice to see something different than all the unoriginal stuff that everybody regurgitates on her daily updates.

  38. lucy says:

    I find it hard to believe that people are defending her for being “a woman who speaks her mind”.

    If these Heigl/Fox gals were just regular employees who talked openly about how much they hated their bosses despite the bloated paychecks and burgeoning careers, would you consider them “women who speak their mind” or unprofessional morons? Burning bridges is not smart in any career, and karma’s gonna be a bitch for these ladies.

  39. feet says:

    All the shit talk and game spitting just makes me like her more. I’m sick of everyone playing the game and sticking to the lines even after they get off set. Celebrity interviews are just a tad better than cliche-ridden sports superstar interviews. Megan says ridiculous shit but at least it is unique.
    she’s punk rock,and it works for me.

  40. docalion says:

    Oh my gosh!! I cant help but comment whenever there’s mEgan fox articles…She never learns~!!!! Doesnt she know, she’s going beyond the nerves of everyone. Well the manworld wouldn’t care anyways. (so pathetic, I pity you the other sex) She has to learn some manners!! Helow, MEGAN FOX, THE EARTH HAS STILL GRAVITY, YOU’RE STILL STANDING ON THE GROUND!!

  41. surely would says:

    The misogyny that is present in about 90% of the posts about Megan Fox (including this blog) has turned me into a fan of hers, actually.

  42. mxml says:

    This article is so dumb. It goes off criticizing how lame she is, but completely and intentionally misinterprets what she says. For example, she never said michael bay is insane, she said “he made us do insane things” –learn to read and write.

    at least this girl has a personality and she’s honest. it’s better than the typical boring clones that hollywood churns out.

  43. yeng says:

    surely would, and you know that 90% of us are misogynists how??? coz we don’t like ONE girl who specializes in dumb quotes, some of which actually does a disservice to us women??? oooookay. hmmm. snort.

    and honest my foot. there’s honesty and there’s having tact. and there’s also knowing how to get attention, and megan knows how to do it.

    having a personality doesn’t mean needing to be a bitch. that’s sad if that’s all she has to offer. i think that’s quite a shallow personality.

  44. harlean26 says:

    I feel bad for all of the Hollywood hopefuls who are waiting tables and going to auditions hoping for that big break. Because I think they would give their right arm to be in this twit’s place.

  45. walker says:

    Good way to knock yourself off the Hollywood ladder. I’m sure other directors are racing to work with her. Sad thing is she doesn’t realize she’s no Meryl Streep and there’s a beautiful girl under every rock.

  46. what a bitch says:

    “He’s beautiful. He’s the next Elizabeth Taylor. I’m just kidding. I just like to make fun of him. I know Zac. He knows that I make fun of him out of love. Everything I say in interviews I say to his face in person. I try it on him and get his reaction and then I say it publicly.”

  47. whatever says:

    Bitch just needs to shut up already. And what’s with the tongue always sticking out? Is she trying to pick the boogers out of her nose with her tongue? Megan Fukkup is a classic case of a celebrity believing their own press. She knows she’s flavor of the moment but what she needs to know is that all flavors eventually lose their taste. Any dude that craves someone like her deserves her and her shallow, user mentality.

  48. uh huh says:

    From Jeopardy:

    What’s the female name for Douche? Douchette?
    What is Megan Fox, Alex.

  49. Oh please says:

    So, in order not to be labeled a misogynist, I have to like Megan and her “honest” and “personality infused” comments? I didn’t realize the dictionary has been revised and misogyny strictly means hating on Megan. Really? This girl never gave any reason to be ridiculed and disliked? Well, I guess I’m a misogynist then. She’s hot, but I dislike this dimwit because of her smack-talk and self-absorbed musings that seem to be driven by her insecurity and her need to be noticed.

  50. Ophelia says:

    Douchette is the best name for her! That’s awesome, uh huh! XD

  51. Bobbius Corwen says:

    Some of what she says is rather amusing…I didn’t exactly understand the very last part that she strongly dislikes being looked at. ‘nyways in this Interview, she’s tolerable…Unlike in other Interviews like in Rolling Stones–I could not understand ‘er at all on where she was coming from.

  52. sweetdrmz says:

    i would like to see the car wash tape..

  53. Lyman Hagle says:

    Great post! Quick question, though: how do you handle family who disagree with this post?
