Megan Fox Discusses Past Interview About Michael Bay, Questions The Response From ‘Critics’ If She Said It Now
Megan Fox has revisited her interview where she called Michael Bay “a nightmare to work with” and questions the response from ‘critics’ if she had said that today.
The 34-year-old Transformers actress went on the record during the hight of the #MeToo movement and seemingly declared war on social media after she was quoted to say the director of the Transformers franchise was a “nightmare” to work with from her experience.
She said now, “It’s tricky because yes, people are more receptive to the topic. But even how I was speaking about it then, the quote in its entirety, it was almost too flippant. Somehow, I would have been villainised in the telling of that story even today. I wasn’t telling it in a way where I was like, ‘Look, I’ve been wounded by this and I need you to hear it’ It was more like, ‘This happens on-set, and I followed it up by saying he’s actually so charming outside of set’, which I would also have been crucified for, because it’s like, why are you defending somebody that we perceive as abusing you?”
Fox went on to say, “It’s a very complicated thing if we’re dealing with just what I said in that interview. I don’t know that it would hold up well. The idea, yes, but I would have had to approach it and deliver it in a different way. Everybody’s looking for a reason to be offended. I would have p***** off a bunch of people [no matter what].”
