The saga continues!
For those of you who’ve fallen behind on your Megan Fox news — here’s a quick primer. First, in an interview with British magazine Wonderland, notoriously loose-lipped and quip-happy Transformers star Megan Fox said that Michael Bay is “like Napoleon and he wants to create this insane, infamous mad-man reputation. He wants to be like Hitler on his sets, and he is.”
Days later, a response letter — allegedly from three anonymous Transformers crew members — hit the web, claiming that Fox was difficult to work with.”Who is the real Megan Fox?” the writers asked. “She is very different than the academy nominee and winning actors we’ve all worked around. She’s as about ungracious a person as you can ever fathom.” Bay then followed-up: “I don’t condone the crew letter to Megan,” he wrote in a post on his website. “And I don’t condone Megan’s outlandish quotes. But her crazy quips are part of her crazy charm. The fact of the matter [is] I still love working with her, and I know we still get along. I even expect more crazy quotes from her on Transformers 3.” (He declined to comment further.)
Finally, today, Fox herself commented on the drama exclusively to EW. “I have spoken with the parties involved privately,” Fox said in a statement, via her publicist. “I am very fortunate to be involved in this amazing franchise and look forward to Transformers 3.”
But wait! There’s another twist. On Tuesday, yet another letter surfaced, from yet another Transformers crew member. (This one, however, is signed.) Below, printed in full, is production assistant Anthony Steinhart’s defense of Fox. He responds to the criticism — both the minutiae and broader strokes — in the original letter.
