So Who Exactly Fired Megan Fox From Transformers 3?

So Who Exactly Fired Megan Fox From Transformers 3?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?

    She is quite attractive and that should tell you everything you need to know about her acting career despite her mediocre acting performances. Studios will hire her just for her looks because people (guys & lesbians) will pay the $10 to see her shake her ass and cleavage about onscreen no matter the quality of her acting. Although I have to admit I did like her in both Transformers films and will kind of miss her in Transformers 3, but I guess that’s why we have Rosie Huntington Whitleyto do just that.

      I watched the movie last week, but when I found out Megan Fox’s is not in the movie, I did not enjoy the movie. It was something missing in the movie, Megan Fox’s of course. Steven or Whoever cut her from the movie I must say it was really bad move and huge disappointment. To put so much effort to do the movies but at the end u make the fans disappointed. I must say Megan was part of Transformers 3, good movie but huge disappointment.

        you are right i mean why put Megan Fox in Transformers 1&2 but cut her out of 3. It is a complete disapiontment to me and my sisters. The action is very good but the character that plays the girlfriend is a very very very big disapiontment to me and to the rest of her fans.


    • Alfiebulldog

      Tut tut Mr Spielberg you never should of approved of Rosie the movie murderer working along Shia LaBeouf on the Transformers set. And shame on you Michael Bay for showing Rosie’s below average ass on set WHILST IT LOOKED LIKE SHE HAD A PUMA. (That stands for Pants up My Ass). Rosie sad to say was dire but I will credit her, damn what’s the word… her acting oh yes I forgot that word and say considering she has never been in a film, it wasn’t astronimcally awful. But to be honest she wasn’t acting. I’ll ask you a question. Do you call screaming, posing in a tight bikini, screaming again and running in pretty Prada heels acting? Actually every word I have just wrote is cruel because I have just found out she’s a robot like the TX in Terminator 3, because they only say one word and become emotionless like the zombies in “The Invasion of the Body Snatchers.” I was also unaware that someone had stolen her tits on set, it made me very sad. Oh well she could be like kristanna loken in Terminator 3 and grow them back.


    • year

      a year after dark of the moon,i never feel that i miss rosie, but i miss megan fox badly..i search and search, and i know in real life, shes a nice girl man, shes not the way shes been perceived..


  2. Rae

    She’s an amazing actress and as for Steven im disappointed, i loved his movies but now i’m hating him.


    • EmilyMz

      What? Why because Megan was being a total bitch and Steven defended his friend???


      • Ewt123456yh

        No, just because you have power thats doesnt make you can do anything you want and like ruins people life then pretending to be the victim?


        • Ariashal

          She was entitled to her opinion, but frankly, it was inappropriate and stupid.  If mentioned at all, it certainly shouldn’t have been in a public interview.  Talk about biting the hand that feeds you.  Of course sets have had their disputes since forever, but she should have watched it.  It’s not because she mouthed him off — it’s HOW she did so.  Of course the director(s) aren’t going to just let her badmouth them without really doing something about it.  Frankly, she was a non-essential character and they were probably paying her too much anyway.

          Besides, to have said something like that makes one wonder if Bay was being that tyrannical or she was just being a little stubborn herself.

  3. Babygap_1234

    Its not going to be the same without Megan.. Im saad..


  4. blah

    IMPO she shouldn’t have said the things she said.  She has been in the business for this long so she would have known that SOMETHING to this extent was going to happen.  It would have been different if she said that Bay needed to work on his people skills, but you can’t go around saying things like that about a director and expect them to take it sitting down, twiddling their thumbs.  This is Hollywood, if you insult one of them, then you have an entire group of people, plus the paparazzi and press after you about them few sentences that you said.  As much as I love Megan Fox, I must say she had it coming the moment the words left her mouth.  


  5. life2

    She would be a co-star with Glenn (Mein Kampf) Beck. I am sure she could have a good TV career and get more of his viewers-white supremacists amd Klan members to watch. They will have to take portable TV’s into the backwoods because they can’t go back to their rocking chiars on their back porches and smoke their corn cob pipes, because their stills may overcook their moonshine.


  6. Alex

    hahaha you megan fox lover a nuts, her career is over she will never be an A-list again, she said those dumb comment and now she get what she deserve dont bite the hand that feed you, Michael Bay and Steven Spielberg got her to the top she spit in their face and now she is going down lol good riddance she was dead weight to the franchise, not a good actress lol lol


    • Doublevanity

       youre retarded. sex sells. megan fox is gorgeous, she can get a job anywhere. saying some retarded director made her is the most ignorant thing ive ever read. tell the director to get on the set and shake his ass and see how much his faggot movie grosses. probably grosses people out is more like it. firing megan fox was a bad move. retards in hollywood that make movies like resident evil are prominent at fucking things up royally. hahahahah megan fox rules. bitches.


      • Beautiful women are a dime a dozen, Beautiful women that can actually act are more rare than diamonds.  Megan Fox cannot now, nor ever will, Act.  Hallie Barry, Jennifer Aniston, and Nicole Kidman…now those are some smoking babes with skills.  How many of the hot females that can’t act do you remember (Other than their face, ass, or tits)?  Exactly none.  How much money do they make now?  None (Unless they do extenze comercials).  In 15 years she will be fat, or dead from a drug overdose and hey will be featuring her on VH1′s where are they now!  Right after one hit wonders and I love the 2010′s.


  7. chazbeck

    you may think it but dont say if you want to keep ypur job


  8. guest

    Yes, I liked megan fox in the transformer movies and what not. But it’s not just that I’m dissapointed to see her gone from transformers 3. I am more annoyed that they kept the character and CHANGED the actress.. I mean, serioiusly, the least they could have done was dye Rosies hair.. I mean really? They could have even written into the story that Megans character had gone off somewhere or whatever and wasn’t going to be seen. I dunno, it just makes me loose interest when they keep the character but change the actress to someone who doesnt even look the slightest bit alike. 


    • guest

      they did not keep the character; rosie is not playing mikaela, rosie’s character is carly!


    • Alex

       you f*ckin dumb stupid! making a comment without knowing the facts first. tsk, tsk. oh wait, are you related to megan fox? oh yeah! that makes A LOT of sense!


  9. Wolvadouche

    I hope she gets into porn


  10. Duder NME

    ———— Michael Bay is quoted as saying that shortly after the 2009 interview it wasn’t him that fired Michael Bay ————-

    That was delightfully twisted.  Don’t change this non-typo.


  11. v michel

    pls – sticks and stones, get over it yes it may have been foolish for her to say that but #1-this is still the good ol U.S.A. ,freedom of speech and all #2 she is young and there are others out there that have said and done worse and it seems to have only helped their situations


    • LilyDivine

      Yes, there is freedom of speech and no one deprived her of that. the issue is that she reaped the consequences of what she said. I have a hard time  feeling sympathy for her. shes either really stupid or her ego was so large that she felt like she could publicly say what ever she wanted about the person who gave her the chance of a lifetime that all but made her career without any backlash. It would be different if it was a private conversation but she said these things in an interview. i mean come on now, saying that he wanted to be like Hitler alone would be enough for me to get rid of her and unlike Michael and Steven im not Jewish so i can only imagine how livid they had to be. her comments were rude and insensitive and she fully intended on them being hurtful. Its sad because i enjoy megan fox but i refuse to ignore what she said or make excuses for her when its apparent that her comments were intended to be hurtful. by the way i saw dark side of the moon yesterday and it was fuckin awesome. one monkey dont stop  stop no show


    • Freedom of speech does not mean shit in the work-place.  And when you are interviewing about a movie, it is still your workplace (it is in the contracts, trust me).  In the workplace (and thanks to many human rights organizations, ALL workplaces) you cannot say things like that to anyone, about anyone.  This is what they call harrasment in the workplace.  Aside from jeopardizing her job, she jeopardized her finances as well.  If Mike and Steve weren’t such nice guys, they could have sued her for all of her earnings with a libel suit.  and though they most likely would not have won, she would have had to spend a good chink of her cash, and the last of her credability.  You can’t call your jewish boss Hitler and expect to keep your job…and while I am at it, remember when you are at work: You can’t call the Black accountant Kunte Kinte or Grand Master Jethro, you can’t call the hot secretary sugar tits, you can’t tell the Puerto Rican in Research to swim home, and you sure as hell can’t calk up to your Mexican Supervisor and ask him for his green card.  Just because you are famous, doesn’t mean the rules don’t apply to you…Ask Imus!


  12. sport

    Who got Megan Fox fired? Megan Fox, next time shut up and be greatful you got your 2 minutes.  And as far as her career she’s gotten work but she couldn’t open a movie if she stood on the corner giving out the tickets.


  13. Diddi6

    its scam to try to make her look  even worse and disstrackt form the change in the movie ..  the transformers arent the same without her and thats a fackt .. sry spielberg  !!!  your arrogance is much bigger then hers….


    • LilyDevine

      Im sure he is arrogant and he should be, its well earned. as far as the movie industry is concerned hes legendary.  you cant even form your lips to say the same for megan fox. T3 is the best one yet. ive seen it twice since its been out.


  14. Popkorn29

    Lets say she was in T3.  Assuming thats the last transformers movie, she’d have nothing else to fall back on.  I don’t think this changes anything.


  15. Shaker

    Hollywood is shallow. This won’t destroy her career at all. It will slow it down for a while, but, as everyone here knows, she is a knockout, and people with her looks will never have a lack of work, whether or not she becomes an A-list star. There’s many young directors/producers out there who will quickly forget what she said about Bay.


    • EmilyMz

      The audience may be shallow, but Hollywood and any big industry in general is mostly fueled by delicate politics. With her on Michael Bay AND Spielberg’s black lists, who would dare hire her and risk pissing them (and their much more extensive and influential supporters) off?


  16. Admiral--j

    As soon as she shows off any skin on her body she will be back in no time. Look for her to cover the playboy magazine


    • Anonymous

      you are quite right if she shows some skin she will definitely draw a crowd. She might not be the most talented actress but a nude lesbian love scene for example would fill seats. 


  17. EmilyMz

    I didn’t have an opinion of her before but she sounds like a total BITCH making those comments. Seriously, wtf is wrong with her?


  18. Sarah

    whoever wrote this needs to really work on their spelling…


  19. Big_Johnson

    hah..megan fox a talented actress?  There will always be someone younger, prettier, and more likeable.


  20. People are ridiculous

    People who make a big deal out of her comment I.e mr twatburg need to man the fuck up and accept that Maybe micheal bay is a prick on set. Also get over the past if we cat say the word hitler because of the past then fuck me we are all screwed and so are all history students….one thing that annoys the fuck out of me is changing an actor in a series. Signs of a bad director ad producer. It wouldn’t matter whether this was Megan fox or anyone else who said it, this is ridiculous… Typical religious fanatic . Get over it.


  21. Grippymonk

    exactly she got fired for calling a jewish director a nazi plain and simple. you can’t say boo any more to these people.


  22. katana

    She wasn’t exactly my favorite, but i did like her in the 2 Transformers movie. It would be different without her but the movie is still awesome though. Perhaps why she said that was because they’ve been together like a family since the beginning and maybe she thought Bay wouldn’t make a big deal if she says something like that and thought it only of a joke. But yeah i guess she wasn’t careful enough..he’s still the CAptain after all. But does Spielberg need to do that? He may be a legend but i think it was arrogant of him cutting her off like that. I’m sure it wasn’t the first time anybody said something to someone in this industry. If Megan was being a bitch then Spielberg was being egotistical.


  23. Oriaaam

    I really miss Megan Fox. The movie is so but better with megan fox. I hope she is in the next movie.


  24. Sshheehh

    I really love the movie except rosie
    its like the looks and personality of the character was changed too
    from sexy heroine to a girly girl model
    i think she doesnt fit the role

    please return megan fox =)


    • Isabelle97

      that’s exactly how I feel! Rosie, in my opinion, was a little whine-y and more of a damsel in distress than a real character. Megan was a real badass, and a likeable one at that. She felt more relevent to the storyline. I hope this incident doesn’t hinder her career.


  25. Spielgerg:  Slimy Money-Grubbing Jew.  BIG SURPRISE.  right?


  26. it’s just not the same… and the movie is so awkward without her … it’s not like Sam is a kind of playboy guy that change girlfriend… Sam is like a 1 girl guy ,,, too bad,,,. the movie screwed up … whatever the story behind ,.. transformer could have been better with Megan


  27. ATRAX

    So she spoke up about what a dbag Bay was, kudos for her. Maybe it’s not so important to her to go back on set with this asshole, maybe it was a relief. Funny that Rosie commented that being on the set was like boot camp, gee, is it possible that Bay is just a complete dbag? 


  28. Someone

    I really, REALLY couldn’t care less how attractive she is. She’s a terrible acctress and if you call your boss “Hitler” you cant really expect a good reply. Anyone who thinks her getting fired ruined the movie, is just going to miss seeing her standing around looking hot. Michael Bay was being very patient with her but Spielberg was the one to fire her so ripping on Michael is ignorant and pointless.


  29. megan my love

    F..u..c..k   both of Michael Bay and Steven Spielberg …
    what kind of stupid morans they are …..
    they are only small students in James Cameron school


  30. Frances_0407

    i don’t like your transformer3 its not going to success coz you fired megan fox


  31. Batikulon ni Hudas

    Megan Fox was put in transformers to look good. Not to act. You are joking yourselves if you think otherwise. And there are a thousand others who can do what she does. I came into this place to look for how many words Megan all did in her two transformers movie. 


  32. David

    i miss megan fox. no me gusta transformers sin ella i love megan fox.


  33. tiff

    she derserved it… thats what you get for being a drama queen!!


  34. Keyanna Denton

    What really ticks me off is the fact is that rosie doesn’t do shit in the movie. She’s just there to be there. But Megan she straps bumble bee to a tow truck and drives him around the city so he can shoot things in the first movie. Hot wires cars captures the smaller decepticon kills one just by running over it and just plain old kicks ass. This other girl is just the damsel in distress. It’s fucking ridiculous because everybody else in the movie is all beat up bruised scratches and dirt on their faces clothes torn hair messed up and they’re doing all the hard work. And this girls hair through out the entire fucking movie looks like she just walked out of the god damn salon. Her clothes look fucking fresh off the rack and she’s the girl running around screaming so someone can save her. Which proves my point that she is eye candy. They could have at least got someone that looks like mikayla does the same things she does and is the bad ass girlfriend rather than the whiny petty screaming girl who doesnt do shit on her own and always has to get her ass saved


  35. Alfiebulldog

    Tut tut Mr Spielberg you never should of approved of Rosie the movie murderer working along Shia LaBeouf on the Transformers set. And shame on you Michael Bay for showing Rosie’s below average ass on set WHILST IT LOOKED LIKE SHE HAD A PUMA. (That stands for Pants up My Ass). Rosie sad to say was dire but I will credit her, damn what’s the word… her acting oh yes I forgot that word and say considering she has never been in a film, it wasn’t astronimcally awful. But to be honest she wasn’t acting. I’ll ask you a question. Do you call screaming, posing in a tight bikini, screaming again and running in pretty Prada heels acting? Actually every word I have just wrote is cruel because I have just found out she’s a robot like the TX in Terminator 3, because they only say one word and become emotionless like the zombies in “The Invasion of the Body Snatchers.” I was also unaware that someone had stolen her tits on set, it made me very sad. Oh well she could be like kristanna loken in Terminator 3 and grow them back.


  36. Paulmguru

    Spielberg’s a Jew and she mentioned Hitler…What did you expect?


  37. Firehand72

    Don’t mess with the Zohan!:)


  38. Ihateracism

    Everyone that has offended Jews in this thread should burn in hell and choke and die. You’re a fucking hypocrite! If you don’t like Jews and think they’re money-grubbing, then you shouldn’t watch the movies they make in the first place. I have two words for you: FUCK OFF!!!


  39. Myrealgenius

    There’s always the Porn industry for her to work in.
