Shia LaBeouf Kinda Talks Smack About Megan Fox, Back Arches on Demand


For his latest (and probably last) “Transformers” movie, Shia LaBeouf has graduated from college, trying to land a job in a rough economy, and most importantly, has himself a spanking new girlfriend in Victoria’s Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Now that’s what I call growing up!

In an interview with the LATimes’ Hero Complex, LaBeouf talks a bit about the movie, his new relationship, but also takes the time to spread a little smack in the direction of Megan Fox, who played LaBeouf’s girlfriend on the franchise for the last two movies before being unceremoniously dumped from the series and replaced with Whiteley.

On the trouble with Megan:

Megan developed this Spice Girl strength, this woman-empowerment [stuff] that made her feel awkward about her involvement with Michael, who some people think is a very lascivious filmmaker, the way he films women. 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 [Fox] never got comfortable with it. 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. When Mike would ask her to do specific things, there was no time for fluffy talk. We’re on the run. And the one thing Mike lacks is tact. There’s no time for [LaBeouf assumes a gentle voice] ‘I would like you to just arch your back 70 degrees.’

See, girls? Female empowerment can get you fired from hit movie franchises.

Anyways, onto the movie. About where his character, Sam is as “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” opens:

Sam’s sort of frustrated. He has no purpose in life. When he was with the Autobots, he had purpose. He was needed. But he’s got this very supportive girl [Huntington-Whitley's Carly Miller] who’s having him go to these job interviews and trying to nurture him, get him back on his feet. It’s a different female energy than he experienced with Mikaela, who was a very cold biker chick. This woman’s more of a maternal, loving type. Sam wants a domestic, eggs-in-the-morning kind of a thing.

The robots attack June 29th.

Hey, at least Megan Fox won’t have to worry about being stomped by the alien menace, right? Now let’s see you arch that back, Megan. Arch, I say!

    Fox is most likely a raging, bitch. But damn! She does arch a mean back!

    • Dedpool

      I know right!!! But seriously Shia put it very eloquently. he coulda said exactly what you said.

  • GPyle

    Michael Bay put Megan Fox on the map. She should be grateful. Otherwise, all she would be know for is dating a 90210 has-been.

    well uh, i dunno all the stuff about megan fox, but i have to say that without her, transformers is not the same. no one really watched transformers for the great storyline… everyone watched it for the computer generated robots, the action and megan fox running around. or is it just me? :P

    • Juggernaut

      Nope. It’s not you.
      They’re throwing this new girl in there for that exact reason. From a movie stand point I think that if she’s not returning they shouldn’t even bother giving Sam another love interest. Why bother? Just have him. I’m sure that some people watched the first two films and connected with her character for more than the T & A. Not me, but someone! Realistically, any peril that this new chick gets her hot little ass into really won’t have any emotional impact on the audience since there is no investment in her character anyway! However, as a guy who likes to see scantily clad, smokin’ hotties running around in slow motion, I’m all for Rosie Huntington-Whitley joining the fray.

      I agree totally, I watched the movies firstly for the robots and the action then Shia, Megan and the rest of the cast, they all had a great chemistry. The new actors and especially this new Rosie chick it doesn’t feel the same. Love the franchise just can’t Stanton the changes. Even having Dempsey in Transformers just didn’t seem right, I found some of the new actors pathetic.
