Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen – Click above for image gallery

Michael Bay may never win the Best Director Oscar, but he sure does know how to get the most out of his actors during their auditions. U.K. broadcaster Jason Solomons wrote in a recent column that Bay had Ms. Megan Fox wash his (unspecified) Ferrari at his home as part of her audition for her role in the first Transformers movie. And since Bay was doing "official" auditions, he apparently recorded every minute of it.

Solomons reportedly asked Fox if she knew where the footage was, and he says she was unsure where the footage was, adding that she was "concerned" as to where it may be. According to Solomons, Bay all but confirmed the tape's existence, allegedly saying "Er, I don't know where it is either" when asked by the broadcaster. Hmmm.

Since the role of Mikaela Banes required Fox to act as sexy as she already looks, we can see why Bay chose for her to wash a Ferrari as part of the audition, but the fact that the 'audition' took place at his home and the tape has gone missing does seem a bit "casting couch" to us. That said, we can think of few things we'd rather see than Megan Fox, a Ferrari, and a bunch of suds. What we don't understand, though, is why this footage wasn't part of our bonus footage in our special edition Transformers DVD.

      I still can't get over how they made her breasts look soo big in that movie...
      But why am I complaining? Oh well, I guess I'll just enjoy it :)

      For those that need to see more of Megan Fox. She will be topless in a new movie. Jennifer's Body. This is true, do a google search if you need to.

        holy mother of god... it is good she has flesh on her.... i will appreciate that... i also appreciate her lack of a fake tan... and i still cannot get over her toe-thumbs...
        normally i'd go with a paperbag over head... in her case it is, "please wear some leather gloves?"

      "his (unspecified) Ferrari"
      Its a 575 Maranello I believe, the one used during the bridge chase scene in Bad Boys II. Just wanted to throw that out lol

      Something tells me the word Ferrari is being used in lieu of something else here.

      Maybe she got the movie role because she was the first girl to wash Michael Bay's car with a micro fiber mitt, and then finish it off with Zaino Clear Seal, and Z-8 Grand Finale Spray Seal.

      If that were the case, no wonder why Mr. Bay filmed her!


      • 6 Years Ago
      Bay filmed her washing his Ferarri as an "audition"? Sleazy. And now the film is missing? Shady.

      It seems like this last Transformers film was more about Bay getting the robot in his and everyone else's pants transformered.

      [ROBOTIC VOICE]: Transformers. Robots. In. Our Pants.

      If Fox wants to do porn, okay. If Fox wants to do Hollywood films. Okay. Same thing for Bay. But if you promise me Transformers, then that's what we need to see! Don't promise us Transformers and then show us tons of scenes of a pot eating mother, an anxiety striken roommate, the military and then all this sexy footage of Fox. And then put the Autobots (the heart of the film) on the sidelines.

      I don't mind seeing any of that stuff when it's made into separate films, but not when you promise me something.

      Now with this little tidbit of recent information, it's clear that Bay has other interests to satisfy under the facade of Transformers.

      gone missing??

      Check his computer for a sub-directory called "WhipOffFootage", it'll be in there.

      Quick! Find that video...

      Kind of a dirt bag thing to do for auditions but not unusual in Hollywood. But I call BS on not knowing where the film is. I even know where it is. It is in his secret stash for "private" screenings and for selling to another dirt bag for a large sum of money.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Michael Bay already very makes large sums of money. The kind of money he'd get for "leaking" this tape is peanuts to him and wouldn't be worth the damage it would do to his ability to make further explosion-fests which line his pockets with gold.

      The auditions were released by Wal-Mart as part of a promotion, they're on youtube. She does things like lift the hood on some random car and say "that's a aluminum 426 stoker motor, used in race cars" or something like that.

      Maybe there are other auditions before this one, but this one was innocuous. And you can also tell a couple things from the audition. First, that she's no great actor. Second, that without her caked-on makeup she isn't actually super hot in the face (incredible bod though). Third, that Shia appears to be crummy enough that Lucas has to be even more mentally impaired than I thought to put that guy in a perfectly good movie franchise and ruin it.

      Even though this is kind of pervy and creepy, I am sure most men would jump at the chance to do this with Megan Fox if given the chance.
      In his defense, very weak defense, he did trust her to wash his Ferrari and not a Kia.
