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].”
