I don’t know about the rest of you but I am having a horribly stressful day but it cannot be as bad as Megan Fox’s day is going. She was fired as we all know from the Transformers 3 movie and it exploded across the internet and had everyone talking me included. Unfortunately for her the story is headline news again not because she was fired but because of who actually fired her.
Back in 2009 Megan Fox did an interview with Wonderland Magazine where she referred to Michael Bay as ‘hitler on set’ and ‘hopelessly ackward’ with ‘no social skills’. After this interview she was quickly fired from the third Transformers film, Dark Side Of The Moon. Different media reports reported she quit to pursue other opportunities but most had it pegged that Michael Bay fired her for her incredibly bold and harsh statements in the press about a man who basically made her career.
The interesting news today is as noted not that she was fired but by whom. It turns out that it was not Michael Bay who cut Megan Fox down to size but rather it was Steven Spielberg who gave the orders. In an interview with the Daily Mail Michael Bay is quoted as saying that shortly after the 2009 interview it wasn’t him that fired Megan Fox but rather Spielberg made the call to fire her.
What does it mean that Spielberg had her fired and not Michael Bay? Quite a bit in my humble and uninformed view on the movie business. As much as Michael Bay is a force to be reckoned with Steven Spielberg is a goliath. For him to call Bay and say ‘fire her’ is the equivalent in my view of putting a big wooden stake through the heart of Megan Fox’s movie career.
Michael Bay may have made her and Megan Fox may have made her bed but its Steven Spielberg who put an end to her career. What are your thoughts is there still a potential future in the movie business for Megan Fox? Or is she screwed?
