It used to be that great, glamorous stars, like Cary Grant, came out in films and were snapped going to premieres. They never granted many interviews to the press, as they were whisked into private parties, letting their publicists pick and choose where the sound bites landed.
Now, actors in big films, like Megan Fox, who was an unknown before director Michael Bay got hold of her, talk and talk, and sadly, keep talking.
There's a portion of the male audience truly fascinated by Fox on a purely superficial level of looks, but Michael Bay, the "Transformers" franchise director, has had about enough of her incessant rambling.
Michael Bay reacted to Fox's "Entertainment Weekly" interview.
"She says some very ridiculous things because she's 23 years old, and she still has a lot of growing up to do," Bay told the Wall Street Journal. "You roll your eyes when you see statements like that and think, 'Okay Megan, you can do whatever you want.'"
"Nobody in the world knew about Megan Fox until I found her and put her in 'Transformers,'" said Bay, citing Nicolas Cage, Will Smith and Ben Affleck as other actors who were "made" by his films.
"I like to think that I've had some luck in building actors' careers with my films."
Shia LaBeouf - Megan Fox's co-star in “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” is also making the rounds saying he is exhausted from the exertion of the Bay film. The 22-year-old actor was forced to work 28-hour shifts to get the movie finished on time.
He is quoted as saying: "I don't even know how to describe that level of exhaustion. When you become jaded and not bothered by a car flipping over your head because you have been doing a 28-hour day, then you know you must be tired."
