Movie star Megan Fox has a bad habit of bashing middle America and constantly whining about how she is supposedly mistreated in Hollywood as chronicled in June by Leigh Scott of NewsBusters:
Megan Fox recently stated that her solution to a real life evil Transformer invasion would be to negotiate and ask, “instead of the entire planet, can you just take out all of the white trash, hillbilly, anti-gay, super bible-beating people in Middle America?”
I also found these quotes from Ms. Fox:
“I don’t want to have to go on talk shows and pull out every single S.A.T. word I’ve ever learned, to prove, like, ‘Take me seriously, I am intelligent, I can speak.’ I don’t want to have to do that. I resent having to prove that I’m not a retard.”
Class act there, Megan. However, Ms Fox apparently acts like such a brain dead prima donna on the movie set that her "Transformers" crew have struck back and the results are, as my NewsBusters colleague Noel Sheppard would put it, absolutely delicious. Here is Nikki Finke reporting on the background at Deadline Hollywood:
Three of Michael Bay's crew members asked his website last night to post their response to Megan Fox's recent insults of the director made to a magazine for her upcoming Jennifer's Body. (She accused Bay of wanting to "be like Hitler on his sets, and he is. So he’s a nightmare to work for.") Now the crew get even and detail why she's the nightmare. I love when there's honesty in Hollywood.
Me too, Nikki. And here is the honest truth as to what Megan Fox is really like behind the scenes according the "Transformers" crew members:
Michael found this shy, inexperienced girl, plucked her out of total obscurity thus giving her the biggest shot of any young actresses' life. He told everyone around to just trust him on his choice. He granted her the starring role in Transformers, a franchise that forever changed her life; she became one of the most googled and oogled women on earth. She was famous! She was the next Angelina Jolie, hooray! Wait a minute, two of us worked with Angelina – second thought – she’s no Angelina. You see, Angelia is a professional.
We know this quite intimately because we’ve had the tedious experience of working with the dumb-as-a-rock Megan Fox on both Transformers movies. We've spent a total of 12 months on set making these two movies.
Ouch! But wait! There's more! It gets even worse:
Megan has the press fooled. When we read those magazines we wish we worked with that woman. Megan knows how to work her smile for the press. Those writers should try being on set for two movies, sadly she never smiles. The cast, crew and director make Transformers a really fun and energetic set. We’ve traveled around the world together, so we have never understood why Megan was always such the grump of the set?
When facing the press, Megan is the queen of talking trailer trash and posing like a porn star. And yes we’ve had the unbearable time of watching her try to act on set, and yes, it's very cringe-able. So maybe, being a porn star in the future might be a good career option. But make-up beware, she has a paragraph tattooed to her backside (probably due her rotten childhood) -- easily another 45 minutes in the chair!
So the press has been writing divorced-from-reality puff pieces about Megan Fox. Color me not surprised.
And as for her whining about the movie sets, the crew knocks her down more than a few notches:
Megan says that Transformers was an unsafe set? Come on Megan, we know it is a bit more strenuous then the playground at the trailer park, but you don’t insult one of the very best stunt and physical effects teams in the business! Not one person got hurt!
Double ouch! Painful but not nearly as much as what is about to come:
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.
Megan has been late to the sets many times. She goes through the motions that make her exude this sense of misery. We’ve heard the A.D’s piped over the radio that Megan won’t walk from her trailer until John Turturro walks first! John’s done seventy-five movies and she’s made two!
Stand by now for a big serving of brain dead inactivity:
The press certainly doesn’t know her most famous line. On our first day in Egypt, the Egyptian government wouldn’t let us shoot because of a permit problem as the actors got ready in make up at the Four Seasons Hotel. Michael tried to make the best of it; he wanted to take the cast and crew on a private tour of the famous Giza pyramids. God hold us witness, Megan said, "I can’t believe Michael is f---ing forcing us to go to the f---ing pyramids!" I guess this is the “Hitler guy” she is referring to.
Yeah, what "torture." Being forced to visit pyramids thousands of years old that most people would love to see. Perhaps Megan doesn't even know what a pyramid is.
The "Transformers" crew sign off on Megan Fox in grand style:
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.
But ‘fame’ is fleeting. We, being behind the scenes, seen em’ come and go. Hopefully Michael will have Megatron squish her character in the first ten minutes of Transformers 3. We can tell you that will make the crew happy!
What's really going to interesting is the attitude of Megan Fox on the "Transformers 3" set knowing that the crew both despise her and are laughing at her. As they say, payback is a bitch. And Megan got paid back in full for her stupid remarks bashing middle America.
