When the sizzling star of "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" went to director Michael Bay's house to audition for the part, "He made her wash his Ferrari while he filmed her..."
I'm not surprised, but can you imagine if he tried that crap with another actress? Then again, maybe I'm just being naive. Yeesh.
"Picture you're giving Optimus a sponge bath..."
Oh my God.ReplyDelete
I had to take a math test for my job; considering her lack of other talents she made out like a bandit.ReplyDelete
And her next flick, "Jennifer's Body," doesn't look that much better.ReplyDelete
The big draw of the film seems to be "nude Megan Fox."
Pretty soon, going to the movies for the plot is going to be like reading Playboy for the articles.
I almost felt sorry for him.ReplyDelete
And then I remembered he's Michael Bay.
No wonder she always looked pissed off in the first movie...ReplyDelete
Someone needs to teach that gal the meaning of sexual harassment if it's true.
If he got the performance that he was looking for on screen, then I think filming her while washing his car was a perfect test of her abilities.ReplyDelete
The only reason I'm still surprised at what Bay does is because it totally lowers my non-expectations even further.ReplyDelete
"Giving Optimus a sponge bath"- my new favorite euphemism.ReplyDelete
Sure it sounds reprehensibly sleazy, but what man wouldn't use the prospect of being the female lead in a Hollywood blockbuster motion picture as leverage to have an attractive 20 year old wash his car while he videotaped her? Not to say I necessarily would, but that's only because I'm bashful that way.ReplyDelete
I don't see how this is really a shock, it's not like Michael Bay, Megan Fox, or the Transformers movies were big on class anyway, I mean, wasn't the big selling point of the trailer the shot of Fox bending over on the motorcycle? It speaks volumes of the whole car wash thing though that I honestly have no idea if Bay or Fox think it was exploitive or business as usual.
(I do like how the big selling point of that "Fast Women" set is the in scale accessories. Because when you're buying figurines of women posing in varying states of undress, you don't want to worry about that kind of thing.)
Have a good day.
If I become a big-shot Hollywood director, does that mean my sports cars will always be clean?ReplyDelete
I would have seen Jennifer's Body, because it's scripted by Diabolo Cody, but not interested anymore.
I think Fox looks like the illicit love-child of Lindsay Lohan and Janice Dickinson. That dazed, hot, eternal teenager meets hard, angry look
To be fair, keep in mind Michael Bay made Bill Bob Thorton paint his picket fence for a role in Armageddon.ReplyDelete

Now, THAT's hot!
A friend of mine worked on one of Bay's films, and described him as essentially being an overgrown frat boy. With that in mind, I can't say this is surprising.ReplyDelete
But is cheap labor really that hard to come by in L.A.?

First response: wow.
Second response: .... yeah, I'm going to stick to "wow".
Aaaand cue my disbelief. How can he get away with that. How can that be his casting process? I mean, how?ReplyDelete
Tell me that Michael Bay had Shia LeBoef run through his lawn in a tattered t-shirt. Please.
"The big draw of the film seems to be "nude Megan Fox.""ReplyDelete
I have rented a few films over the years for reasons no greater than that.
"Pretty soon, going to the movies for the plot is going to be like reading Playboy for the articles."
I realize an old cliche is hard to buck, but Playboy has and has always had a lot of great journalism and fiction in it. Nowadays that I can get any porn I can dream of on my PC, I really only read playboy for the articles and (the occasional nude celebrity)

Aww, you see... now I sound sleazier than Michael Bay with a dirty car.
Although I suppose the car could've been clean and he was just having her wash for the act of washing the car. You'd think if he were going to go to all of the rigamorale and potential fallout from the whole bit, he'd at least want to get an actual washing. Then again, it's hard to make washing a car all that sexy when you're really concerned with giving it a good washing. And if you're trying to do a decent job you'd probably be more focused on the work than your own appearance.
Anyway, what was my point? I'm not a pervert.
Have a good day.
Maybe I'm getting old, but I do not get the appeal of Ms. Fox. She's a weak caricature of the stereotypical hot woman. Can she even move her face?ReplyDelete
Not surprised to learn how she got the part from Micheal 'Big Booms n Boobs=Big Box Office' Bay.
That said, Transformers was entertaining summertime eye candy.
