The romance, like Fox’s role in the big-money franchise, was doomed.
’s Jason Solomons wrote about how Megan Fox got her role as midriff-baring Mikaela Banes in the first two Transformers films: “She told me she went to director Michael Bay’s house to audition and he made her wash his Ferrari while he filmed her. So that’s sort of a microcosm of how Bay’s mind works.”“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,” La Beouf said. She’s dancing, she looks hot, she’s wearing a short skirt. And he looked at a few of us, and there was this look in his eyes, like he had reached nirvana. I remember the first thing Michael said to me— before he even introduced himself or asked me my name—was “Can you walk?
She said she didn’t know what had happened to the footage. “Mike films women in a way that appeals to a 16-year-old sexuality. ” And I looked at him like, “What is this man talking about?
It seems straightforward enough—except for the fact that there’s likely no greater concentration of Megan Fox fanboys anywhere on the planet. It’s just like, if you have a girlfriend, you grab her butt or whatever. That’s me playing around; you know, you just cup it a little.
After hearing what we’d be doing, the first question the security firm that Anthony works for asked was: “Do you want your guard armed? For a few seconds.”Fox must be aware that these are the kinds of statements likely to explode all over the gossips—the “fuck Disney,” the “cup it a little”—but most of all, even with her minimal exposure to Hollywood decorum, she recognizes that Serious and Respected Actors have become serious and respected precisely because they don’t say this sort of stuff.
” (Um, no guns, please.) A friend and When Megan fox was 19, she posed half-naked for a magazine photo shoot and boasted in the accompanying interview that she possessed “the libido of a 15-year-old boy.” (She also described a tattoo she’d gotten of her boyfriend’s name as being “next to my pie”—not exactly the kind of thing you say if you’re hoping to keep a low profile.) At that time, Fox was filming the third season of ABC’s , a family-friendly sitcom starring Kelly Ripa that’s best summed up by its eventual fate—syndication on the WE network—and she was fed up with playing the coquettish yet chaste teen. But she seems almost constitutionally unable to hold herself back.
The show was repressing her, she says, tamping down her sexuality: “Sex is something that everyone does, so why can’t I talk about it? Ever since she was a little girl growing up first in Tennessee and then in Florida, the best way to get Megan Fox to do something has been to tell her not to.
When I put it to Bay himself, he looked suitably abashed. “We were shooting this club scene, and they brought me in, and I was wearing a stars and stripes bikini and a red cowboy hat, and six-inch heels. And they said, ‘You know, Michael, she’s 15, so you can’t sit her at the bar and she can’t have a drink in her hand.’ So his solution to that problem was to then have me dancing underneath a waterfall getting soaking wet. Yeah, of course I can walk.” And then he proceeded to tell them to get me in the car, and then I was driven—I mean, honestly, I want to say it was about half a mile out in the desert. ” And the car dumped me in the middle of the desert.
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. When Mike would ask her to do specific things, there was no time for fluffy talk. (One gem that emerges is that a friend “just can’t see him with somebody over 35.” Bay is 51.) Brad Fuller, his Platinum Dunes partner, shared the following anecdote: The first time I saw Michael on a bigger set, he was doing a video, and there was the hottest blonde girl I’ve ever seen in my life, and she’s got a wind machine on her.
And he says, “OK, when we shout action, you’re going to walk!
” and I assumed I would be doing this in several stages.
She first met Brian on the set of “Hope & Faith,” saying he seemed “sweet and quiet, harmless. You’re not a threat, you’re not some d-bag that’s going to cause a lot of problems.’” At the time Brian was 30, while Megan was just 18 years old. It’s not for other people to judge and talk about and write about in In Touch Weekly.” She also shot down the notion that her sudden rise to fame had somehow emasculated Brian. “He’s the one person that I know that if I’m struggling and everything’s getting crazy, I can call.” Megan might be remaining mum on the state of her relationship to Brian, but she’s quick to shoot down rumors that she rebounded with “Twilight” star Robert Pattinson.
