Michael Bay: Megan Fox "Has a Lot Of Growing Up to Do"

Michael Bay: Megan Fox

Everyone knows Megan Fox has said some outlandish things over the past few months while promoting her new flick Transformers 2: Revenge Of The Fallen, which is absolutely crushing the competition at the box office this summer.

And one quote in particular has upset the movie's director, Michael Bay.

Fox told Entertainment Weekly, "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 *ss. People are well aware that this is not a movie about acting."

Now, Bay has a thing or two to say back to the 23-year-old actress. He told the Wall Street Journal: "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.'"

He adds, "Nick Cage wasn't a big actor when I cast him, nor was Ben Affleck before I put him in Armageddon. Shia LaBeouf wasn't a big movie star before he did Transformers— and then he exploded. Not to mention Will Smith and Martin Lawrence, from Bad Boys."

Bay goes on, "Nobody in the world knew about Megan Fox until I found her and put her in Transformers," he says. "I like to think that I've had some luck in building actors' careers with my films."

Burn! Not good to bite the hand that feeds, Meg.

    I don't like her for other stupid comments she makes like mean comments about other celebrities. But she never denied that it made her career. dude she's just not being all fake like everyone else acting like there acting or sining is artistic. She basically said hey this isn't no great acting in a drama its just a action film and ppl watch it because of that.

    But, it isn't about acting, even a little. And it certainly has nothing to do with writing. Bay knows damned well what he's dispensing, and Fox knows what she's doing for a career. He needs to make more films like Bad Boys or shut the hell up. He is out of his mind if he thinks he can defend himself from a reasonable statement that everyone already knows is true by calling his star immature. Grow up, loser.

    Man I just clicked this link on accident and read a couple posts. Good Lord, dont you people have lives? Who cares about all this stuff?!? Ben Affleck was right in one of the best movies ever when he talks about the internet being full of geeks that have the right to come on and slander people anonymously. Lol.

    To "me", "firefly87" said it best, Megan could as easily just say thank you for the work! No Transformers is not about acting but the only reason she's been working is because of the Transformer movies aside from that all she does is mostly naked magazine spreads(I use that term loosely) and talk about how boring and whinny men are ! No Michael Bay didn't "find"these actors but we noticed them more because of the movies. Shia is a decent actor and I hope he doesn't get caught up too much with Megan, in my opinion she'll only bring him down eventually. As for Megan ,just try being alittle more appreciative whether it's a an oscar role or not (and you have a looooong way to go if at all before you may get one of those.) It's ok to be pretty and intelligent and one of these things fades after awhile! Another thing,try not to contradict each interview you give, it only makes you sound stupid.

    this girl is a taint. does she ever shut up. but honestly, nobody should tell her to shut her trap, she will ruin her own career and cut off all opportunities for herself in the future. even if thats not what she meant, thats what she said and directors will look at that as being ungrateful. she doesnt need sh*tty movies to destroy her career, she can destroy her own career all by herself.

    bengibbard, He didn't found those actors. But he did however help made them bigger and more recognizable internationally. Ok?!! The world has no clue who Ben is before Armageddon. But, actually Bay is just pissed cause he's not getting some from Megan. Bleh.

  • jen

    ugh she is nothing but a talentless, stuck up bitch! She can't do anything without wishing she has cameras around her. ugh!

  • amalia_97

    i used to love her before but now i know that she has done A LOT of surgery just to look like angelina jolie ......... anyway she shouldn't say these thing to a newspaper....

  • bengibbard

    you guys are all stupid if you really believe he found all those people and made them huge, go do some homework on it and you will realize micheal bay just makes piece of sh*t movies.

  • firefly87

    how about casting an actresss who knows how to say thank U,and not some imature actress who says Im smarter than d think.will someone bite d dust again lets start d countdown.

  • claudia

    I think that he is right. She has a lot more growing up to do as a person and as a actress. She said it herself, "People are well aware that this is not a movie about acting" which not only makes her look bad but makes her sound stupid.

  • me

    She's right though, this movie isn't about giving amazing acting performances. It's not going to give any of these actors an Oscar. And Bay is talking about putting people in the public eye, not making them better actors. And Megan Fox gave the movie credit for where it took her, and what she gets to do now.

  • eva2009

    hohoo, I am not that surprised at all. I saw her profile on the free sugar dating site > last week. It said she is interested in seeking a man for sugar baby on that site!

  • Lorelei

    She actually said that she's not in more movies because the casting people think she's TOO hot, and they are intimitdated by her. She's too full of herself. All she's good for is eye candy, and only if she doesn't open her mouth to say anything. Once that happens, the illusion is ruined. When will she fade back into the background? She's so 5 minutes ago to bring back an old cliche.

  • sarah

    I think she is very beautiful but my goodness what a terrible actress she is. She has the acting skills of a goat.thats to show you how far looks get you in H-WOOD!and why does she not have a publicist to control the crap she says?, she needs to hire one A.S.A.P/ I totally agree with you. She is a terrible actress!

  • Meh

    Such bullsh*t, where in what she said did she even diss Bay? He's such a f*cking baby. Be more sensitive.

    [quote=Jimmy Jim]Michael Bay makes sh*t movies, Megan Fox whores herself out to star in them. who cares? Too true!

  • Knight

    @Chez - Yes we knew them but were they big actors? no, his movies made them become BIGGER stars... and he's right about that and as for Megan's acting, well she did accomplish in acting sexy, not all girls who look hot can act sexy. :P

  • chez

    seriously, yes, megan fox has growing to do, but at least she's honest about the fact that she hasn't done anything worthwhile. she knows we only like her because she's hot. michael bay, however, is retarded to suggest he launched all those actors' careers. we all knew who they were before he cast them in his films. he can only take credit for shia and megan's careers.

  • FuckYouMeganFox

    as much as i dont like Bay as a director, but he totally right. and she needs to get some class as well as mature as a person and be a professional

    Wow that was not cool what Megan just said... She gives Transformers no credit for where she's at right now... No one knew of her before Transformers came out, Bay is totally right.

  • noah

    Is she required to lick lip lips/teeth in every photo op these days? Let's hope so.

  • mertz

    ahahahhaha she's an idiot

  • xxpinkbabesx
