Megan Fox probably thought she was being somewhat funny when she compared Transformers director Michael Bay to Hitler, but the folks over at Bay's official website, including some of the Transformers crew, aren't laughing. In fact, they are striking back.
"Nelson," apparently an administrator of Bay's website, posted a fairly scathing letter from the Transformers crew last night, who accused Fox of being "dumb-as-a-rock," and who say that Fox is fairly unpleasant on the set.
"Who is the real Megan Fox? She is very different than the academy nominee and winning actors we've all worked around," the anonymous crew members say, "She's as about ungracious a person as you can ever fathom. She shows little interest in the crew members around her. We work to make her look good in every way, but she's absolutely never appreciative of anyone's hard work. Never a thank you. All the crewmembers have stopped saying hi to Ms. Princess because she never says hello back. It gets tiring. Many think she just really hates the process of being an actress." Yikes.
The cast members claim that though Bay is a demanding director, Fox was way out of line to compare him to Hitler, and that she's the one who truly made the set unpleasant for everyone else. It's an incredibly nasty note, ("Megan really is a thankless, classless, graceless, and shall we say unfriendly bitch," for example) but I suppose it demonstrates the danger of talking shit about your co-workers, even when you've left the job behind. Fox may be famous for speaking her mind (and she has the one up on anonymous crew members talking crap about her in that way, I suppose), but perhaps it's the stuff we don't hear her say that will end up shaping the rest of her career.
Either that, or this is just a really weird publicity stunt. But if Bay allowed it to be posted on his official site, one wonders if Transformers 3 is going to be a pleasant working experience for anyone, or a working experience at all for Fox.
