Megan Fox is known for saying crazy things, to the media anyway, and in recent interviews she apparently referred to Michael Bay as a “nightmare,” and “Hitler”, which isn’t a very clever thing to say to your ‘boss’. However it seems Transformers 2 director Michael Bay couldn’t care less:
“I love her,” the man responsible for the blockbuster franchise told USA TODAY. “It’s just, she’s young. Everyone’s got to give her a break, she only…23? It’s just hard. I’ve traveled around the world with her and she’s just like this world symbol now, you know?”
So he brushes her diatribes under the carpet? “Absolutely,” he said. “She called me (after the Hitler comment) and goes, ‘It’s all bullsh—t, Mike.’ The press, they just like to prey, and stalk, and pounce and find a good little juicy thing. But she’s always wanted to do these crazy comments. That’s just her. She’s great.”
He also said, “She’s got a great part in Transformers 3,” and he said he’s currently working on the script. So Bay’s not planning on getting revenge by, say, killing her off? “No, no. no,” he said, dismissing it. “She gets enough of that already.”
The role of Mikaela Banes in the franchise consists of looking hot and being Sam Witwicky’s girlfriend. She did the truck thing with Bumblebee in the first film, but in Revenge of the Fallen she didn’t really have a purpose. This time around Bay and the writers don’t have a writers strike to battle with, so hopefully they take their time and develop the story and characters. Especially the robot ones.
