Michael Bay has been hanging around at the launch of a Victoria’s Secret Show, with the excuse that he directs their commercials, and discussing his supposed nemesis in lipgloss, Megan Fox. And what does he have to say about her?
I love her.
Er… okay, Mike. He did also discuss the role he’s creating for her in the third Transformers film. “She’s got a great part in Transformers 3” he promised. So he’s not going to kill her off? “No, no, no. She gets enough of that already”. Okay… whatever that means.
USA Today had Andrea Mandell on the scene, who got Bay to discuss the crazy hurtful things that Fox has said about him. Here’s their version of what he said:
She called me [after the Hitler comment] and goes, ‘It’s all bullshit, Mike.’ The press, they just like to prey, and stalk, and pounce and find a good little juicy thing. But she’s always wanted to do these crazy comments. That’s just her. She’s great.
How dare the press pounce on her cute little Hitler comment like that. There was nothing offensive about it at all, not to anybody.
Okay, the only news here, really is that Bay is promising a big role for Fox in the next Transformers film. I don’t believe him when he says she won’t be killed off because I don’t really believe when he says anything he seems to be lying so often, but he does seem to be operating from the assumption that she’ll figure in the film in some sort of substantial capacity.
Well, as substantial as anything has ever been in a Michael Bay picture.
I think Fox’s finest hour to date was quite easily Jennifer’s Body, which I liked a great deal, but she was carried right into that role on the crest of a zeitgeist wave. She was the “that type” we all knew at the time, and soon enough, there’ll be another “that type” come along, and hopefully one we can all like a little better.
Does anybody care if Fox is in the next battling bot-a-thon or not? Surely what appeal there is lies in the hydraulic characters, not the pneumatic ones?
