Is Megan Fox – arguably one of the most lusted-after women on Earth – uncomfortable with being sexy? Her former Transformers co-star Shia LaBeouf seems to think so, as he credits her wariness about director Michael Bay’s hyper-sexual style as the reason she left the popular film franchise.

“Megan developed this Spice Girl strength, this woman-empowerment [stuff] that made her feel awkward about her involvement with Michael, who some people think is a very lascivious filmmaker, the way he films women,” Shia told the LA Times. “Mike films women in a way that appeals to a 16-year-old sexuality. It’s summer. It’s Michael’s style. And I think [Megan] never got comfortable with it.”

During her time in the Transformers franchise, Megan didn’t hide the fact that she wasn’t Michael Bay’s biggest fan. The beautiful actress famously likened the Transformers director to Hitler in an interview with Wonderland magazine back in 2009 and said he was “a nightmare to work for.”

There was also a report that Michael made a then-unknown Megan audition for her Transformers role by washing his Ferrari in a skimpy outfit. Yikes!

Shia doesn’t exactly deny the fact that Bay is a difficult guy to work with:

This is a girl who was taken from complete obscurity and placed in a sex-driven role in front of the whole world and told she was the sexiest woman in America. And she had a hard time accepting it. When Mike would ask her to do specific things, there was no time for fluffy talk. We’re on the run. And the one thing Mike lacks is tact. There’s no time for [LaBeouf assumes a gentle voice] ‘I would like you to just arch your back 70 degrees.’

Megan famously dropped out of Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon back in 2010. She was replaced with Victoria’s Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley who presumably was OK with getting sexy on camera.

If Megan was uncomfortable with embracing her sexy image she doesn’t appear to be afraid about getting sensual on camera these days – Megan currently stars in a series of super-sexy ads for Armani. Check out one of her hottest commercials, “The Tip,” below.

In the end, Megan doesn’t appear to be stressing about missing out on the new Transformers flick. The actress recently joked on her Facebook page about playing Halo. “Attention gamers,” Megan wrote earlier this week, “Getting 21 kills by hiding next to a gravity lift with an energy sword does not make you a badass, it make you a coward.”
