By now you may or may not have heard: Megan Fox is really hot and really mouthy. The target of Megan Fox’s mouthiness has been, of late, her former “Transformers” director Michael Bay, who Fox has likened to a socially retarded Hitler. Apparently not everyone is happy with that comparison. A trio of former Bay crewmembers have risen to defend their dear leader, posting a rather defamatory (and long) letter on Michael Bay’s website in response to Fox’s comments. While the letter itself has since been removed, this is the Internet, so of course there are copies for all to read.
DHD has the entire letter over at their site, but here are the highlights:
And who is the real Megan Fox? She is very different than the academy nominee and winning actors we’ve all worked around. She’s as about ungracious a person as you can ever fathom. She shows little interest in the crew members around her. We work to make her look good in every way, but she’s absolutely never appreciative of anyone’s hard work. Never a thank you. All the crewmembers have stopped saying hi to Ms. Princess because she never says hello back. It gets tiring. Many think she just really hates the process of being an actress.
Never expect Megan to attend any of the 15 or so crew parties like all the other actors have. And then there’s the classless night she blew off The Royal Prince of Jordan who made a special dinner for all the actors. She doesn’t know that one of the grips’ daughters wanted to visit their daddy’s work to meet Megan, but he wouldn’t let them come because he told them “she is not nice.”
So this is the Megan Fox you don’t get to see. Maybe she will learn, but we figure if she can sling insults, then she can take them too. Megan really is a thankless, classless, graceless, and shall we say unfriendly bitch. It’s sad how fame can twist people, and even sadder that young girls look up to her. If only they knew who they’re really looking up to.
The letter stayed up for less than a day before it was pulled, and I suspect that was the point. This way, Bay can say, “See, I had it pulled when I found out”, while giving the letter at least a day or two to spread across these here Interwebs.
Bay then released this short statement in regards to the “Transformers” crew letter:
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’m not really sure talking crazy and unnecessarily burning bridges is a “charming” quirk. Kinda a stupid, career-suicide quirk, actually. But then again, we are talking about the girl who tattooed a big honking portrait of Marilyn Monroe on her arm and whole paragraphs on her back. The girl isn’t exactly known for, you know, making good decisions.
