Steven Spielberg Ordered Megan Fox To Be Fired From ‘Transformers’

4

Steven Spielberg ordered Megan Fox to be fired from Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Spielberg, who is Jewish, was outraged when the actress gave an interview saying director Michael Bay was like Nazi leader Adolf Hitler on his movie sets, and insisted she was dropped from the third installment of the trilogy, despite the filmmaker insisting he wasn’t offended by the comments.

Michael said: “You know the Hitler thing. Steven said, ‘Fire her right now.’ ”

The 25-year-old actress – who was replaced on the film by British model turned actress Rosie Huntington-Whitley – had claimed she left the project to pursue other roles.

After she departed the film, crew members were less than complimentary about the star.

In a letter posted on Michael’s website, one wrote: “Michael found this shy, inexperienced girl, plucked her out of total obscurity thus giving her the biggest shot of any young actresses’ life.

“He told everyone around to just trust him on his choice. He granted her the starring role in ‘Transformers’, a franchise that forever changed her life; she became one of the most googled and oogled women on earth. She was famous! She was the next Angelina Jolie, hooray! Wait a minute, two of us worked with Angelina – second thought – she’s no Angelina. You see, Angelia is a professional (sic).

“We know this quite intimately because we’ve had the tedious experience of working with the dumb-as-a-rock Megan Fox on both Transformers movies (sic).”

Screenwriter Ehren Kruger also said that when she arrived at rehearsals for ‘Transformers: Dark of the Moon’, Megan didn’t appear interested in the film.

  1. I feel like a lot of people feel that way. I’ll admit I’ve never actually seen anything she’s been in so I don’t know how good or bad she was in the first 2 Transformers.

  2. i think she was good! and to fire her cause he is a sis and got hurt off one comment is dumb. And of course there going to bad mouth her they dont want to get fired too ppl always talk behind others back i say steven grow some….

  3. Franchise slum mafia Hollywood (Spielberg/Cameron/Lucas)
    have been pushing tech worship and EUGENICS for decades.

    Even worse has been their key, indeed, central role is
    burying ALLLLL revelatory consciousness of the ever unfolding RED Chinese ‘EUGENICS friendly’ Halocaust.

    ALLLLLL we need to know…
