The leading actor of 'Transformers' film franchise is adding comment on why Megan got kicked out from the production, saying that it's because 'she started s***-talking our captain.'
A few days ago, it was revealed that Megan Fox
was from the "Transformers
" film franchise after comparing director Michael Bay to Adolf Hitler in a magazine interview. This time, her former co-star Shia LaBeouf
also chimed in, adding opinion that the 25-year-old actress' "s*** talking" got her fired.
"Criticism is one thing. Then there's public name-calling, which turns into high school bashing. Which you can't do," the actor who portrays Sam Witwicky in the science fiction movie series said of his former leading lady to GQ magazine. "She started s***-talking our captain."
Shia is not the only one from the production team who has broken silence about Megan's departure from "Transformers". Many other crew also speak up, revealing about why the wife of "Beverly Hills, 90210" star Brian Austin Green
got kicked out from the heroic Autobots war movie series.
"She was there for rehearsals," screenwriter Ehren Kruger remarked on Megan. "But she seemed like an actress who didn't want to be a part of it. She was saying she wanted to, but she wasn't acting like it." Director Michael Bay himself also added, "She was in a different world, on her BlackBerry. You gotta stay focused. And you know, the Hitler thing. Steven [Spielberg] said, 'Fire her right now.' "
However, the 46-year-old director insisted that he has no hard feeling on the Tennessee-born actress over her "Hitler" comment. "I wasn't hurt, because I know that's just Megan. Megan loves to get a response. And she does it in kind of the wrong way. I'm sorry, Megan. I'm sorry I made you work twelve hours. I'm sorry that I'm making you show up on time. Movies are not always warm and fuzzy," he said.
Furthermore, the man who also served as producer of "I Am Number Four
" even compared the "Whore
" actress with her substitute, Victoria's Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley
. "Listen, I mean, Rosie came in and she would say hello to the crew. She would acknowledge the crew. She'd say thank you," he gushed.
In the end, Michael agreed that he shouldn't have to take things too seriously as he claimed that he's already made up with Megan. "She sent me a text three months ago. She said, 'I hope you're doing well,' " he explained. "I responded, 'Who is this?' She goes, 'Megan, you dork!' I said, 'Oh, well, thank you, hope you're well.' When you're days and months on a set, it's like a family. You say rude things and you make up."
