Megan Fox Cut From Transformers 3

According to Nikki over at Deadline Hollywood, Michael Bay has decided to axe Megan Fox from the production of Transformers 3. Could this be payback for Megan's previous boneheaded comments about the director?

See, last year, while promoting the steaming pile of crap known as "Jeniffer's Body," Megan was asked what it was like to work with Michael Bay. Unfortunately, she engaged her mouth instead of her brain and came up with this choice quote:

"He’s like Napoleon and he wants to create this insane, infamous mad-man reputation. He wants to be like Hitler on his sets, and he is. So he’s a nightmare to work for but when you get him away from set, and he’s not in director mode, I kind of really enjoy his personality because he’s so awkward, so hopelessly awkward. He has no social skills at all. And it’s endearing to watch him."

Any time you compare someone to Hitler, you are asking for trouble. My guess is that Michael laughed off the comment, then carefully tucked it away in his memory to be pulled out and used at the right time.

Love him or hate him, Michael Bay is responsible for spring boarding the careers of many actors, including Nicholas Cage, Will Smith, and even Shia LaBeouf. Now, I wouldn't say that Bay has the Midas touch, but it's hard to argue that he wasn't influential in getting these guys into blockbuster movies that grossed a ton of cash and allowed the actors to ask for even bigger salaries on their next project.

And then there's Megan Fox, who decides to invoke Godwin's Law and thought she could get away with it. Silly, silly Megan.

Hollywood is filled with ridiculously hot starlets all willing to do anything to get a part in a Michael Bay film, including keeping their mouth shut when they disagree with the director.

No great loss, really. Megan couldn't act her way out of a paper bag.
