Star of the Transformers trilogy Shia LaBeouf says Megan Fox was too into "woman-empowerment" stuff to fit Michael Bay's movie-making style, specifically, that his films appeal to a "16-year-old sexuality." So, says LaBeouf, the director chose Victoria's Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley to take over the film's love interest role because she was willing to show some skin while also providing LaBeouf's character with her nurturing, maternal instincts. Apparently Megan also being a sexy underwear model wasn't enough, since Shia adds that Bay wanted a "domestic, eggs-in-the-morning" style over Fox's "cold biker chick" character.
I'll take this with a grain of salt since it's LaBeouf, not Bay, making the comments. But there are a lot of interesting takeaways from these little nuggets. Namely, that "sexiest woman alive" Megan Fox wasn't game for reprising the standard boobs-out action movie love interest role that made her famous, and that Bay was essentially looking for a Stepford wife character in the flick. What do you make of all this?
