Megan Fox a 'grump' according to anonymous 'Transformers' crew members

megan-fox-michael-bay_lMegan Fox has grabbed her share of headlines with statements that seem nuttier than a squirrel’s cheeks in October, but her recent comments that Michael Bay “wants to be like Hitler on his sets” seemed to push the limits of good taste, even for her. Over the weekend, three crew members from the Transformers franchise ran a letter on Michael Bay’s website fighting back. (The letter has since been removed, but it’s cached, so… not really removed.)

The anonymous letter — “we can’t give our names because sadly doing so in Hollywood could lead to being banished from future Paramount work” — wastes no time calling Fox “dumb as a rock,” saying that she “never smiles,” is “the grump of the set,” “is the queen of talking trailer trash and posing like a porn star,” her acting is “cringe-able,” she “has a paragraph tattooed to her backside (probably due her rotten childhood),” and “is as about ungracious a person as you can ever fathom.” It wraps up with this anecdote: “On our first day in Egypt, the Egyptian government wouldn’t let us shoot because of a permit problem as the actors got ready in make up at the Four Seasons Hotel. Michael tried to make the best of it; he wanted to take the cast and crew on a private tour of the famous Giza pyramids. God hold us witness, Megan said, ‘I can’t believe Michael is f—ing forcing us to go to the f—ing pyramids!’ I guess this is the ‘Hitler guy’ she is referring to.”

Yeesh. Bay responded with a letter of his own, saying “I don’t condone the crew letter to Megan. And I don’t condone Megan’s outlandish quotes. But her crazy quips are part of her crazy charm. The fact of the matter I still love working with her, and I know we still get along. I even expect more crazy quotes from her on Transformers 3.” I officially declare this statement Michael Bay’s finest work.

Fox was on the Today show this morning talking about how she’s insecure, promoting Jennifer’s Body, and talking about hosting SNL this weekend. NBC said they “never comment on upcoming show content,” but some are saying that this non-feud may make its way into a sketch on Saturday, which wouldn’t be that surprising — Fox would look like a good sport, making fun of herself, and it’s the only way to make a Transformers joke seem current.

PopWatchers, I’m gonna call this a draw: Calling people “Hitler” isn’t a great idea, but neither is talking crap on the Internet about a coworker you don’t like. Where do you fall on the Fox vs. Crew vs. Bay free for all?

    Meh. I hope this doesn’t make it onto the SNL season premiere.

    I mean, seriously? Does anyone other than pop-culture nerds like us even know that there’s a feud between Megan Fox and her “Transformers” director. I mean, I KNOW and I barely care, so I don’t really need to see a skit dedicated to it. At least Michael Bay has shown that he can poke fun at himself (the AWESOME commercial).


    I’ve read for years that Bay likes pushing his actors to the limit and make them work real hard. She made comments earlier when Transformers 2 came out but now it’s just beating a dead horse. Bay is tough…we get it already..get over it or go back to doing tv shows

    I like nutty girls. lol

  • UncleWalty

    the crew thinks Megan Fox is a dumb b*tch with no talent and a gigantic attitude problem? Eh…who cares. I figured as much anyway. The real problem is that she has ZERO magnetism onscreen. None. Zip. Nada. She’ll find out soon enough that having a fake tan and big fake tits will get you in the door in Hollywood, but it won’t keep you there for long.

  • Tom Brazelton

    I’m inclined to believe each and every complaint the crew members lobbed against Fox. She just rubs me the wrong way. But at the same time, making such allegations anonymously is pretty cheap.

  • Mike

    I guess I don’t care, if I were on set, Megan Fox could be as mean to me as she wanted, and I would be totally cool with it.

    • fancypants

      you clearly have no self-worth. sad.

  • Gael

    the crew addressed the fact that megan knows how to work the media to get to like her (which may or may not be true considering in a cosmo article she admitted to giving her bf psuedo-hand jobs in public) so they have the right to say whatever they want. and i believe them. furthermore, bay clearly agrees with him. his comment seems to say “they’re right, but i dont want to officially agree because shes under contract to work with me again for at least another movie.”

  • Marc

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! Michael Bay just said that there will be a Transformers 3. Please, please, please STOP THE INSANITY!!!!!!!!!

    • crispy

      LOL Between this and Indy 5, it’s like the worst day of movie news ever.

      • Trina

        Oh no – there’s gonna be an Indy 5?

    • Chappel

      As long as Hollywood can make crap movies that are incredibly profitable they will continue to make crap movies. Hollywood learned long ago that if you dumb down a movie, fill it with cliches, inane and ridiculous dialog, half naked girls and lots of explosions it will appeal to the masses and turn a huge profit.

  • Mellie

    Hey she’s popular – and not because of her acting. Can’t blame the guys tho, us ladies have our own terrible eye-candy too! But alas with age it’ll be “Megan Who?”

  • daisyj

    Clear case to invoke Godwin’s Law; Fox loses.

  • Matt

    She’s from my town and I’ve never heard one nice thing about her from anyone who’s met or known her. So I’m not too surprised to hear stuff like this.

  • RickK

    Hollywood producers have become lazy. We know who Megan Fox is because of her looks despite the fact that I pass by ladies on the street that are far more attractive. Is it nepitism? Who’s the Hollywood connected person that is related to her in some way? Really, why do we know who she is? Besides, by her own admission, she has limited skills as an actress. I like the way she speaks for the entire human race when she makes comments like “everyone loves SNL” or says the first statement, forget what it was, then says, “Well, I can’t speak for everyone”, but just did. To quote Diablo Cody in Juno, “She’s not brightless light on the tanning bed”.

  • Stephanie

    I kind of already knew the Movie Awards I beileve it was, I was watching and I could just see her attitude >_< she hardly smiled and when she did it was fake. I honestly don't care though because she really isn't all that big of a woah, just something that guys like to look at. Let her be a bimbo,that will just be her bimboness lol. But yea , I agree with the person above me , when she gets older, it will be "Megan Who".

  • monica

    first of all, she auditioned for Transformers by washing Bay’s car in a bikini. So any chance of her respecting him or his movie went out the window on that day.
    2) Why the hell does she have to say hi or be nice to complete strangers who are most likely ogling her?
    3) I’m not saying she’s nice, but I’m not trying to be her friend. I just want to watch movies. Why do people always worry about celebrities being nice? When will that come up in the theater?

  • John

    Every attractive women I’ve ever met was like her. Guy’s, if you want the hottie, expect the attitude to go with it.
