    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Pulp Says:

    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!

    kel Says:

    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.

    …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 Says:

    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.
