'Transformers' Production Assistant Defends Megan Fox

The Transformers letter war continues!

From Megan Fox comparing Transformers director Michael Bay to Napoleon to crew members insinuating that Megan may have been a diva on set and the director’s insisting he still loves working with her, it can be hard to keep up with the latest!

This time, production assistant Anthony Steinhart gives his opinion on the accusations made against Megan.
Here’s Anthony‘s letter:

“First of all, I would like people to know (for those who are interested) the reason why I am writing this letter is to clear my name in any of this Ms. Fox bashing. As someone pointed out in one of the responses, you could narrow down the list of potential writers of the letter by looking on IMDB. I have received a few phone calls from people who have read the letter and they know that I have worked closely with the actors/actresses on the film, so I felt I should at least clear my name.

“My name is Anthony Steinhart and I have worked on both Transformers movies and have had the pleasure of working with Ms. Fox.

“I read the letter by the three unnamed crew people and was blown away by their description of Ms. Fox. Especially, since I am the one usually getting Ms. Fox at her trailer. I have personally never been nor ever witnessed Ms. Fox being rude or inconsiderate of people’s feelings or the work to be done. Everyone is entitled to their good days and bad. Contrary to popular belief, she is like us (human) and has both good and bad days as well. Working on the Transformers movies can be intense at times and sometimes intense situations cause intense moments.

“Some of the examples the three unnamed writers give as evidence of Ms. Fox and her horrible attitude are so ridiculous.

“It’s unfortunate the grip didn’t want to bring his daughter to set because Megan Fox wasn’t nice and not the fact that we had a closed to set. No visitors unless approved by the UPM [unit production manager]. That is what the call sheets have always said. By the way, Ms. Fox wished my 12-year-old brother a happy birthday over the phone while we were shooting in New Mexico. Not so heartless…

“It’s also unfortunate that she didn’t attend any of the ’15′ parties, but I clearly remember her hanging out in New Mexico with some of the crew and watching her get hounded by passers-by as she walked through the hotel lobby and being nothing but gracious to her fans. Also isn’t it refreshing to hear that she doesn’t need to be a part of the party machine that sometimes swallows people whole, only to spit them out on the front page of every magazine. And incidentally, if these crew members were at the wrap party, I only saw 2 cast members there. Granted I wasn’t there the whole night, but I was there long enough to know that the others probably weren’t going to show.

“I also remember walking with her through the hordes of people lined up, while we shot at Princeton and she signed autograph after autograph. She signed many publicity photos, magazines, pieces of white paper for crew members and their families. Now I know that isn’t the same as curing a disease, but if we are to take anything an actor/actress says or does to personally, then I fear we have far greater problems on our hands.

“Unfortunately, I don’t always keep up with or hang on to quotes and/or quips ‘actresses’ say, so I wasn’t familiar with the incident that incited the tasteless letter, but none-the-less leave the war of words to those involved. No need to drag her name through the mud and at the same time, unknowingly, bring others down.”

    Team Megan. Not just because she’s pretty, but she seems alright. Not that much of a famewhore compared to other young hollywood starlets, and she doesn’t seem to ***** around (sticking by her.. man, on and off). Ok so she stays ridiculous things at times, but the media tends to drag those things out of people by leading them with some stupid questions to begin with. Anyway, these ‘crew’ people just need to relax.

    Okay I am about to stop visiting JJ if this nobody continues to occupy space that real actresses with class and genuine in and out beauty can use. LETS TALK ABOUT UP and COMING ACTRESSES with TALENT and NOT an ANGELINA wanna be.
    WE can always find a preety face in any ***** house and make her into an action star, which does not require any form of acting.
    This is a PLEA letter to JJ, STOP REPORTING ON THIS GIRL.

    MR Steinhart, huge kudos for writting this letter. The fact that you had the balls to sing your name under it, unlike the cowards who wrote that bashing letter about Fox shows how much integrity you have.

    Like every story there are 3 sides: one side, the other side and the truth. They are all probably stretching the truth in their own favor. Bottom line is that NONE of it matters because this is all petty and insignificant.

    I’m sorry, but is there anything more to Megan Fox than T&A?? Because, lets face it, her acting “abilities” are just non-existent. I somehow doubt writing a letter defending or trashing her is going to make a difference. I’m curious to see who writes the next letter. Maybe we can all write one?? This is so ridiculous. I personally am not a huge Megan Fox fan so it was somewhat amusing to read the letter from the “crew members”, but I really couldn’t care less to see this continuing on.

    this is a well written letter that sounds pretty level-headed, so as much as i don’t appreciate megan fox’s style, i’d take steinhart’s words into consideration.
    can we just move on already?

    Of course he was going to write a letter defending her, his freakin job was probably on the line. He said it himself, people thought he was part of the first letter because of his constant contact with Megan. It’s so obvious that he felt compelled to write this lett in her defense not because he believes what he wrote but because he had to. Notice he doesn’t even touch on the fact that Megan bad-mouthed his boss (Micheal Bay) in the first place?!
    Megan is a talent-less beauty, all she has going for her is her looks….and even in that she really ins’t unique! There are far more beautiful women in HW. And seriously, her “acting” in Transformers is so bland that it’s almost comical. She has absolutely so “expression” or personality at all….in this movie anyway. I will be fine never watching another movie with Megan Fox in it forever,lol.

    He could’ve said “it wasn’t me” and let her defend herself. Short and simple.

    or he did it because he wanted to keep his job and the bosses thought he was one of the 3. and heck he might have been.

    in the end I’m Team Sick of All of IT. Megan is not THAT pretty, or talented or charming. she’s a total B List actress who thinks she’s A list. but then again Michael Bay is a B List Director who luckily manages some A list box office cause he goes for the dumb masses of especially teen and college age boys that think the more explosions the better the movie.

    I saw her at the UK premiere for Transformers 2, she was the only star to come all the way down to where ALL the fans were waiting – the others just waved, signed a couple photos and ran inside. AND it was raining really bad and she still kept signing stuff and taking photos! She was really apologetic to all the fans as well because security people were pulling her to go inside. I really don’t know why people are saying she’s a b****h.
