Megan Fox: Shia Talks 'Transformers' Departure

Megan Fox goes undercover in a baseball cap as she heads to a salon on Thursday (June 2) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The 25-year-old actress’ Transformers co-star, Shia LaBeouf, recently told the LA Times that he understands Megan‘s leaving the blockbuster series.

Megan developed this Spice Girl strength, this woman-empowerment [stuff] that made her feel awkward about her involvement with [director] Michael, who some people think is a very lascivious filmmaker, the way he films women,” Shia explained.

Mike films women in a way that appeals to a 16-year-old sexuality. It’s summer. It’s Michael’s style. And I think [Megan] never got comfortable with it,” Shia continued. “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. And she had a hard time accepting it.”

    I’ve never liked her, but I have a bit more respect for her leaving that franchise. If she felt cheap and uncomfortable being seen that way, then I applaud her. Movies like that make women look like a piece of meat, and totally takes us back before women’s lib. Good for her for standing up for herself.

    @iknowwhatyoudidlastsummer: What do you mean it’s sad?? This may sound corny and cheesy but the Spice Girls were role models for young girls and told women to have ambition and confidence.

    Michael Bay is known to be a douchebag to women so even though I am not her fan, I admire her courage to speak up and take action for her beliefs. There are PLENTY of actresses who whine about being sexualized yet they don’t ever do anything about it (and continue giving into it) but this girl didn’t. Talented or not, at least she isn’t all-talk.

    haters can call Megan anything they want, but one thing you have to admit is that she has some respect for herself. Bay was pretty much treating her like a piece of meat. Theres a video of the guys who do special effects for Transformers and they were saying how Bay told them he wanted the hottest girl in the world to play Mikaela. and he made the special effects guys edit her body to make her even hotter. He also made her parade around a room full of men in a leather outfit during her costume fittings..and don’t forget he frickin had Megan (at age 15) in a bikini and cowgirl hat, dancing under a waterfall in Bad Boys II. The guy is a perv and has ZERO respect for women.

    @jdub: Sorry but if that were true she wouldn’t have done the movies in the first place. She gained fame from that franchise and once she thought she was above it all, decides to leave. Rumor is she even auditioned in a bikini washing Bay’s car.

    WHAT UTTER BS!

    So M. Bay told Megan Fox to do Jennifers BODY? In which she’s a sex crazed demon man eater? Or Jonah Hex in which she’s a PROSTITUTE? Or how to lose friends in which she start stripping out of her cloths standing around in her underwear making porn faces all day? Or pose in underwear ads ( badly ) ??? Pleeeeease, everybody still remembers the BS she’d spew about how she thinks she so sexy, confident and how men are intimidated by her.

    Did M. Bay tell her to chop off her nose and inject her face?
    Did M. Bay tell her to lose all her curves and walk around with **** colored hair?
    Did M.Bay tell her to pose in all her magazines half naked?
    Did M. Bay tell her to open her mouth in general? Or accept any of those roles?

    NO

    There is never a movie where she is NOT naked. Micheal Bay did NOT tell her to do that to heselfr she did it all on her own. Even when she was on TV PRIOR TO TRANSFORMERS she’d prance around in a bikini and belly bare tank tops prostitute heels and mini skirts so cut the BS Megan Fox. You were trailer trash when Bay found you. You’re still trailer trash only now you’ve got ZERO respect and even less talent.

    Now stop polluting the world with your worthless self and do what everybody wants and just DISAPPEAR. Youre not apart of TF anymore and that was your own damn fault. I hope you do go to the premiere though – because its suck sweet irony. Youre still nothing without transformers.

    YOU GUYS ARE MISSING THE POINT.. ITS NOT ABOUT MEGAN FOXS FILM ROLE CHOICES.. ITS MORE ABOUT SHIA CALLING OUT MICHAEL BAY THROUGH MEGAN FOX.. sorry for the caps .. but sometimes people dont see the trees through the forrest..shia had an axe to grind and he most certainly implied Michael Bay is a skeeve ball..

    @Jen:
    why should she, she’s going to the nail salon

    *Angieee* Says:

    @littlebird: It just says “salon”. And I wasn’t aware a ring on would interfere with getting nails done. She has looked unhappy in candids lately hmmm

    omg i have longer hair than megan fox, i never thought i’d see the day

    Andie Says:

    Megan is the BEST. Period.

    And I respect her decision and I’m on her side. It’s not a matter of roles. It’s a matter of how she was treated.

    She was a men eater and a prostitute in films but in none of them she got her ass stuck in the screen the way BAY did with her in her opening scene in TF2.

    There’s a difference between sexy and vulgar pervertion aka BAY.

    TEAM MEGAN FORR LIFE.

    why bring michael up if he wasnt a scum bag??.. the question was about megan fox leaving transfomers..and shia volunteered Miachel Bays name.. stay on topic trolls..

    #18 you are so right.
    Take a look at all of the female oscar winners of the last decade-can anyone think of any that haven’t played a sexed-up role and actually gotten naked on screen? I can’t. Megan Fox is playing up that part of herself just like countless have before her. It’s one thing to portray a dumb bimbo as an actress, it’s another to be treated like one by your boss.
