Reasons I love Megan Denise Fox.
Because if I don’t stand up for her, who will? Okay, I can name about 6 people that will, but we’re small voices that can’t do anything. But I’m not gonna stop standing up for her. Even if the media refuses to NOT take Michael’s side.
You don’t have to be a fan of Megan Fox to acknowledge the injustice Megan suffered on the set of Transformers from Michael Bay and his “loyal” crew. When Megan’s comment on Michael Bay came out, everyone sided with Michael Bay, calling Megan a “brat” or “ungrateful” and saying she should have kept her mouth shut. These are grown ass men and they couldn’t shrug off a comment from a 23 year old woman. This Behind the Scene clip is just a glimpse and I cannot even imagine what ended up on the cutting room floor. Detailed bullet point of their relationship throughout the years. (stops after Jonah Hex) [x]
Michael made Megan model wardrobe options (short shorts and belly tops) in front of a room full of men, made her audition by washing his car in a bikini while he filmed it (of which Michael Bay hasn’t denied) And while the disgusting 3 quarters of the planet will side with Michael saying Megan’s a “whore” and “agreed to it anyways” or “asked for it”, do not know her side of the story. Megan’s wanted to act for her entire life stemming from Judy Garland and Marilyn Monroe.Day in and day out for both Transformers movies, Megan had this tyrant barking orders at her about bending over the car, arch her back and dictating what she wore and even naming her character after himself. Michael Bay is disgusting. I don’t care what Megan says about him now, it doesn’t excuse how he treated her and dragged her name through the mud. Megan’s been on 12 movies so far and has only had ONE crew complain about her. But to this day, people BELIEVE she’s the bad one to work with. That’s the power of this piece of shit, Michael Bay.
Yeeaah, this asshole is the main reason I dislike the live-action movies and feel uncomfortable when I see the occasional praise for them on my dash.
Oh and let’s not forget also that Megan Fox wasn’t the only lead actress who had to put up with his shit:
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley - revealed in an interview once that she wore see-through lingerie for her audition / screen test, and I’ve got a feeling that was probably why he hired her (ewww)
Nicola Peltz - was around 17/18 during the filming of ‘Age of Extinction’, which featured a butt shot (on an UNDERAGE GIRL. Okay, I know movies w/ certain content featuring young actors usually depend on both cast consent and the context within the film, but still EWWWW ICKY) and a whole creepy scene based solely on how it was TTLLY OK for the older love interest guy to be with her because of some obscure state law or whatever (basically 4chan devil’s advocate logic)
Not much else to say about Michael Bay that hasn’t already been said in this post, or anywhere else, but yeah, FUCK that guy!
on the subject of underage actresses in michael bay films, i found this little gem from meghan when i clicked the link:
"The first time I ever met him, I was 15, and I was an extra on Bad Boys 2. 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 took me to Mike and he approved it. 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. And that’s… At 15 and I was in tenth grade. So that’s sort of a microcosm of how Bay’s mind works." -x
bay has been treating her and female actresses in general like shit long before the transformers franchise, though meghan certainly got the worst of it
Thank you for your contribution! More proof Michael Bay is human garbage.
All of this, yes. I get that the live action Transformers movies are supposed to be “mindless entertainment”, but there are plenty of “mindless entertainment” movies out there that don’t rampantly sexualize minors/children, depict minors in sexual relationships with adults, make minors the objects of a highly sexual male gaze with the intent of the audience lusting after them.
This made me SO uncomfortable when I was watching “Age of Extinction”. Like, I was drunk and high while watching and the fact that a 17 year old child was being paraded around like a piece of meat for grown-ass men get hard-ons over STILL made my skin crawl. I don’t know if the actress is 18+ or not, but her character, Tessa, is supposed to be 17. Mikaela Banes was in high school, so very likely under 18 as well.
Aside from all the other obvious misogyny and racism, this is one of MAJOR reasons that I can’t really be okay with the live action Bay movies. That kind of stuff is just… disgusting.
