Megan Fox Not Sexy Enough For Transformers

Megan Fox Not Sexy and Nurturing Enough For Transformers Role, Says Shia LaBeouf

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?

I guess thats why they got Rosie to just stand there and run around in heels while she's being shot at.

Hmm I think I can sort of see where he's coming from. Adult men think it's hot when a girl is into manly stuff like cars, but from what I remember when I was a teenager and was totally into beer and wrestling and heavy metal, teenage boys mostly see tough chicks like that as buddies. Not as someone sexy or a love interest.

Too sexy? Every time I see a picture of her, she is semi naked. Arami ads, for example.

It's crap to say that Megan Fox wouldn't be comfortable in a sexy role. She plays the sexy chick in every movie but I can see how she would hate to be apart of transformers seeing as Michael Bay is a mega pervert. I can see him saying things to her from behind the camera like "dip it low.....yea yeaaa....now pick it up slow. Slow......slower.....dammit Megan!!! Do I need to teach you how to pick up a pencil seductively?"

Pay attention to other Michael Bay movies. Have you seen Texas Chainsaw Massacre(2003)? Nobody looks that attractive being chased by maniacs. I have yet to see him put women in a role where they aren't completely dependent on the lead male(s). However, Megan knows how to play up her 'talents'(Jennifer's Body anyone?), so who knows. Perhaps he is a chauvinist and she's a diva and they're personalities simply clashed.

I can't say there's any surprise to anything LaBeouf says. Fox is well rid of the enterprise.
