Why Megan Fox Isn’t In “Transformers 3″, According To Shia Labeouf

Its not news that Megan Fox will not be in the upcoming “Transformers: Dark of the Moon”.  We heard quite some time ago that due to a dispute with Michael Bay, Fox’s character had been written out of the new film.  There were many stories going around as to what actually happened between Fox and Bay.  The most common story is that Bay was upset at Fox’s comments about his directing style, saying the Transformers movies weren’t about the story, but about the special effects.  Well, she’s not wrong.  And everyone, including Michael Bay, has agreed with her. 

Fox’s former co-star Shia Labeouf  also has a history of speaking his mind about the films he’s in, even if it isn’t popular with the movie executives.  During an interview with the LA Times, Labeouf was asked why he thought Fox and Bay didn’t have a good working relationship.

“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.’”

Honestly, I can buy that.  I can really see that being the case for two reasons.  One, Labeouf is a very honest person.  He admits that “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” was crap.  Second, if that weren’t the case, Michael Bay would have replaced Fox with an actual actress and not a Victoria Secret model.
