Michael Bay on Megan Fox: “She Says Some Very Ridiculous Things”

by | July 2, 2009 at 4:38 PM | The Movies

Megan Fox made a lot of waves with her willingness to always say whatever’s on her mind, including implying that Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen director Michael Bay makes movies that don’t give actors much opportunity to act, that he directs her to “just look hot” and that she’s kind of embarrassed by her current résumé. Bay’s response to that is what you might expect.

Well, that’s Megan Fox for you. She says some very ridiculous things because she’s 23 years old and she still has a lot of growing to do. You roll your eyes when you see statements like that and think, “Okay Megan, you can do whatever you want. I got it.” But I 100% disagree with her. Nic Cage wasn’t a big actor when I cast him, nor was Ben Affleck before I put him in Armageddon. Shia LaBeouf wasn’t a big movie star before he did Transformers – and then he exploded. Not to mention Will Smith and Martin Lawrence, from Bad Boys. Nobody in the world knew about Megan Fox until I found her and put her in Transformers. I like to think that I’ve had some luck in building actors’ careers with my films.
