    Michael Bay looks soooo creepy in that picture. I wonder what Megan and Shia think of this.
    Anyway, good luck Rosie, you will need it.

  • Vanessa Taylor

    Welcome , it will be a good change from stuck up Megan Fox who is NO ACTRESS but thinks she is !!! Hahaha !!!

  • Tori

    Hmmmm,I wonder how many times she had to blow him to get the part.

    With this chick I spent many nights burning fireplace near the floor of the room.

  • Gabby

    I don’t like Rosie for the movie! I’m not a even a fan of Megan, but I’d like her back, because she’s been there since the first one, so I think it won’t be the same without her.

  • jacki

    @Vanessa Taylor:

    Megan NEVER said she was a good actress. She actually criticized her own acting!

  • M

    I don’t care she is in the movie, I don’t even care about the movie. However, all of a sudden she gets a role and we have to see her on JJ all the time.

    Plz JJ go back to showing legitmate actors. This site has been going down for a while now.

    @Vanessa Taylor:

    Megan never said her acting was good! She always criticized it, and even said it was bad!

  • yo sista

  • I n F a m o u s l y C o o l

    …He’s a Fcuking Pig
    .
    …Everything Megan said about dude is true. Massive douche with a huge ego.

  • yo sista

    I’m sorry but Megan>>>>>>>>

    You cannot REPLACE Megan Fox you dumb perv!

  • Halli

    This is GOOD news for Megan Fox. She really needs to stretch her acting skills if she wants to be taken seriously and playing eye candy for horny guys is really amateur.

  • mihay

    I don’t even like Megan Fox but this girl is a SERIOUS downgrade from her.

  • HF Gal

    Rosie is really growing on me… Her being part of TF4 will definitely skyrocket her career so CONGRATS to you again girl.

  • Wes

    Megan forever!!!

  • Ben

    she sucks compared to Megan!!! im not even going to bother seeing this movie now…

  • wtf?

    wtrf is going on???all these public congratulations… Is this gonna start a new trend? usually the industry congratulates people by taking out ads in the trades because of a nomination or an award or a milestone of some kind. First Victoria now the direstor…Suppose she’s a pain in the as$$ during filming? What’s are all these people gonna do then? Pick their faces up from the floor out of embarrasment?

  • well duh…

    ok so we have a nother girl witha nice body and no substance, jesus can’t he get a girl whos pretty and smart that can act. models should stay models!

  • commonsense

    Please stop shoving her down our throats! It won’t make us like her any more or Megan any less!

  • pinkydoo

    Yeah, I bet he welcomed her with open arms…

  • commonsense

    That smarmy look on his face, I don’t think I would be able to stand him touching……..but then again maybe she closed her eyes and thought of England.

  • Just Saying

    it needs a Victoria Secret model to replace Megan Fox on Transformers 3 otherwise the heat Megan brought to the screen wouldn’t be nowhere near replaceable..just that Megan also got charm and coolness..unfortunately these things are not replaceable..either u got it or not. this VS model didn’t even capture ppl’s attention neither did she stick out on the VS show. but i see atleast she can manage to pose in underwear next to bay very well. if even a fake-reality-show-wanna-be-starlet like heidi montag thought she could have the chance to land the role on a big screen in TF3 then u know hollywood these days is far away from the bright side and the true glamor of A-B-C or even D lister.

  • Jenny

    I don’t really care either way. Let’s be honest, the role probably doesn’t require much acting anyway. Many of you who are upset that Megan is replaced… oh well. Megan at the end of the day is eye candy, and completely replaceable. She’s not really an actress, but just like a model. If she brought something to the table other then her adult film looks, then that would be a different story.

    People will still see the Transformers movies, because it is a popular franchise and little kids could care less about the replacement of Megan Fox. The first movie was very successful before Megan Fox was even known. The Transformers movies made Megan Fox popular not the other way around. But even with that popularity Megan Fox still can’t carry a movie. More people dislike her, then actually like her. That’s why Jennifer’s Body was a flop.

  • kat

    Well, CLEARLY Michael Bay’s looking for real acting talent to for his movie because nothing says “I can act!” like strutting around in a bra and panties for a living. Gag me. Bay seems like a total douche and T3 is going to S U C K.

  • Andrew

    Congratulations Rosie, you’re beautiful, fun, positive and deserve!

  • Kate

    Congrats, Rosie!!!

  • jaye

    Wow! Par for the course for Michael Bay. He doesn’t even try to pretend that he wants more than eye candy ( for himself) as the female lead. He COULD have gotten someone who is at least an actress, but he doesn’t want an actress; he wants someone he can just drool over and would be so grateful she would fall all over him. . Maybe this one will be so grateful that she’ll…. hmm… better leave that to your imagination.

    The pretty and smart actresses probably knows him all too well and wouldn’t work with him for any amount of money. Say what you want about Megan Fox, but she was dead on about Michael Bay. If you Google it, you’ll find that there are some other actresses who weren’t so pleased with him. Not everyone wants to just take the money and be treated badly. Doing that is called having no self respect.
    -
    What make this man so obvious is that the movie would have been a blockbuster even without the overtly sexual female. The part of Sam didn’t need a drop dead girlfriend; that was Bay and Bay alone. The Robots and action were the main attraction. He probably imagined that HE was the little robot that was humping Megan’s leg. Little Wheelie was so cute. lol. That’s hilarious; Michael Bay living vicariously through a robot.
    -
    I’m not upset that Megan won’t be in the next installment. Actually, I’m happy that she got herself out of an unhappy situation. Bay can hem and haw all he wants, but the fact is that she just didn’t want to do the movie because of how he had treated her. She was vocally upset by what HE made of her character in the movie and the fact that all he wanted was the b*utt and tatas shots, to paraphrase her. When other females diss her and say she should have kept her mouth closed and just taken the money, I’m sort of sad. Woman ought to at least have each others backs when it comes to abuse whether it’s physical or VERBAL. The fact that she is a celebrity doesn’t mean she isn’t entitled to be treated decently. Michael Bay abuses his power especially with regard to women; it’s a known fact. .

    If you’re perv long enough, you start to look creepy, like he does in that pic.

  • RHONYC

    that’s a nice how do ya do!
    nothing says f%ck you very much…but you ain’t victoria’s secret’s hot, than hiring a victoria’s secret model to replace an ingrate ‘actress’ who wanted to be angelina jolie hot.

    lol!

  • Sweetness

    One question: Can she act? Imagine Shia must be thinking he not only has to work with green screen images, but now he’s got to deal with a sex doll, this series is blatantly rubbing it in everyone’s face..YOU DON’T NEED ACTORS….just T & A and CGI.

  • Anne

    I was hoping for Katie Cassidy …

  • Pulp

    I wonder which end HE’S thinking with… Probably not with the upstairs brain. I hope to God, that she can do more than just squeak weakly in the film and look “cute” in some skimpy little top and postage stamp miniskirt in which he’s going to make her wear… Because then, it doesn’t matter what she’s wearing. Then, she’ll be an actress. Before that…. She’s just a fame hungry model.

    Feel free to bad mouth me now!

  • why

    Megan Fox fans are clearly insane!!! really annoying. :(
    OMG they changed the article

  • iwantMegan

  • http://whatabeauty... rosie is a cutie…..but

    what the heck happened to her lips? Did she get injections, they look funny?
    I hope she is not making a mistake this guy sounds like a real creap.

  • kel

    Its not like either of them are being hired for their acting skills, the movie could feature a hot blow up doll and it would pretty much be the same thing. Personally though I think that Rosie is more attractive – at least her weird puffy lips and the rest of her looks are natural.

  • Andie

    MEGAN FOREVER.

  • sharon

    its not rosie’s fault megan either ‘quit’ or was ‘fired’ so people quite judging her and wait and see the movie first!!!! i think she is suuuuper hot and pretty and all natural unlike megan…

  • MARY

    For the love of God, BRING MEGAN BACK!

  • annabins89

  • So Judgemental

    Ah so what infamous… you just described 98% of Hollywood. And that about sums up every director in Hollywood history.

    …Everything Megan said about dude is true. Massive douche with a huge ego.

    #21 wtf? @ 06/02/2010 at 9:11 pm

    Anything supposedly would be an improvement over Megan on set. The crew did a conga line celebration when they heard Megan was out.

  • So Judgemental

    People whoa re assuming that Rosie is sleeping with Bay or was forced into a casting couch situation.. Grow up. She is dating Jason Stratham who would probably pummel Bay if any of that was even remotely true.

  • http://www.blogdelosfamosos.com Noticias de famosos

    Rosei can do a good job, but having no experience in
    interpretation .. you can put the batteries …

    I LOVE ROSIE, SHE IS BEAUTIFUUUUUUUUUUUUUL! ULALA
