For all the talk of heavyweight star power, in all but the most extreme cases, it is directors that have the most power on the set, not the celebrities. That's apparently how it happens that Michael Bay has removed Megan Fox from Transformers 3, who is said to have insulted Bay at almost every chance she got, calling him Hitler, Napoleon, a "nightmare to work for," and "hopelessly awkward." Actually, that last comment she meant to be a compliment.

The official line is that Fox was cut because "giving Shia a new love interest makes more sense for the story." If you buy that one of the most popular features of the franchise needed to be replaced – or that Sam Witwicky was looking for a hotter, more badass accomplice, well, we've got a few other things we'd like to sell you. We'll wait to find out who Michael Bay's got in mind to replace her, and who knows – casting hopefuls might be busy learning how to wash his Ferrari as we speak...

      What the HECK does this even begin to have to do with the automotive world? I couldn't care less if Miss Toe-thumbs is not in the next movie. She is a rather trashy woman anyway. If I wanted this kind of tabloid drama, I would catch it on another news source. Stick to the Auto part of autoblog.

      Why do I have a feeling that cast someone like Michelle Rodriquez in this part? That would just be frightening... but I can already picture it happening. :(

      Actually, I would say the producers and movie studios have the most power on set. They could fire the director if they felt like it.

      Hey..drape her ass over a motorcycle again.
      Forget the robots.

      Slow news day, eh?

      I am just curious when you guys first think about posting up a topic like this one... do you guys realize that it has nothing to do with cars and you post it up as 'filler,' or you say "screw it, we need the click-throughs" and know that a certain percentage of AB viewers will come in here just to get a better shot at Fox which will bump your ad revenue?

      Just curious what the thought-process is.

        Cars and hot women come hand in hand. I'm disapointed I don't see more posts like this :(

        I don't see anything wrong with Megan Fox who co-starred in a CAR based movie making it up on the site considering it is news... Nice boob shot btw AB. *thumb shot*

        POW right in the kisser :o

      Isabel Lucas > Megan Fox. Too bad they had to make her a bad robot and kill her off in the second one. She would have been a good replacement.
        • 5 Years Ago
        This. She smoked Fox off the screen.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Can they give Sam a cougar instead? ;)
        • 5 Years Ago
        Now THAT would be far more fun to watch!

      In other words: she's just as disposable in real-life as the characters she portrays in movies.
