Name calling and hollywood spats are all a part of the Hollywood landscape, but rarely are we treated to a media extravaganza as the one between Megan Fox and Michael Bay.
In an interview with the British magazine, Wonderland, Megan fox was asked what it was like to work with Bay, who directed her in the Transformers films. “God, I really wish I could go loose on this one,” she replied. “He’s like Napoleon and he wants to create this insane, infamous mad-man reputation. He wants to be like Hitler on his sets, and he is. So he’s a nightmare to work for.”
In an open letter to “all Bay fans”, three of the director’s crew said they had had “the tedious experience of working with the dumb-as-a-rock Megan Fox on both Transformers movies. Megan is the queen of talking trailer trash and posing like a porn star, so maybe, being a porn star in the future might be a good career option.”
Michael Bay’s reply to Megan Fox’s comments: “I still love working with her and I know we still get along. I even expect more crazy quotes from her on Transformers 3.”
Which makes me wonder if this all wasn’t just an elaborate PR ruse? At the end of the month, she will host the season première of Saturday Night Live, and, Scriptwriters are reportedly working the Fox-Bay battle into a sketch in which the director may also appear.
Whatever the case might be, you are not supposed to bite the hand that feeds you, unless you’re confident that doing so will work in your favor. And with all of the focus on this spat, maybe it was a good move by miss Fox.
