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."

    I'm actually a big Megan Fox fan but if she's saying she felt objectified by Micheal Bay then she's full of shit! I'm just saying if she wasn't comfortable with the "sex driven role" in Transformers then how was she comfortable playing Jennifer Check in Jennifer's Body when that entire film revolved around her sex appeal?! Not to mention the scene when she's in her underwear and makes out with Amanda Seyfried which had absolutely nothing to do with the plot of the movie! Or the countless number of pictures she's taken in bikinis and lingerie for men's magazines! I'm not saying that Michael Bay is the easiest person to work with because for all I know he could be a sexest pig but I don't think it's fair for her to say she felt "uncomfortable" because I think the armani video shown when she answers the door in her underwear and the other things I mentioned is proof enough that she is comfortable in her sexuality. I think she and Michael just didn't get along period and not because she didn't like the way she was being filmed.

    If I would have had an audition like that I wouldn't be comfortable at all working with that guy that is totally wrong unless she was auditioning to get a job on a strip club. Feeling sexy is not the same as feeling like a sex toy. I'm just saying I totally understand her.
