So, last night I was looking around to see if there was anything interesting to write about...Well I found something and it is kind of shocking. I'll let you be the judge of that!
As most of you know, Micheal Bay is the director for several big name movies, more notably, the Transformers series. The 3rd installment of the film is set to debut in theaters July 2011, a full year ahead of schedule. However, some fireworks came with the article. According to Yahoo!
and Micheal Bays website
, Megan Fox took a verbal beating from Bay saying she "should see a doctor before shooting the film." OUCH! That is brutal! Shia and Ms. Fox take a beating while shooting these films. Of course, who wouldn't want to be in a film with Optimus Prime?
But that is besides the point. The point is, filming these movies are dangerous and could be deadly if not done the right way.
Ok, I understand Bay might have been trying to be facetious, but seriously, did it have to be that harsh? Mr. Bay, I love your work, but that statement towards Ms. Fox did not need to make it to the media and should have been kept off the record.
Ms. Fox do you have a response? I don't know about you but I would take exception to that comment. That's just me.
Ms. Fox and Shia Labeouf have a great working relationship in the Transformers series. In my opinion, you may beg to disagree but that's fine.
The bigger question becomes, should directors push their stars too much to the point where the stars just say this is enough? At what point should the actors/actresses say enough is enough and this isn't worth getting killed over? On the other hand, I know that some actors/actresses enjoy doing these crazy stunts by themselves and live on the edge. When are the movies not about money but about the enjoyment of making the movie? Can't movies ever be for fun so people can enjoy them, as well as the people who were in them?
Shia do you have a response for your co-worker, about what Bay said?
