As we get closer to the June 29 opening of Michael Bay’s Transformers: Dark of the Moon, it’s only natural for people to ask Shia LaBeouf how filming the third film with Victoria’s Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley differed from the first two films with Megan Fox. Especially now that LaBeouf has given such an interesting answer. He tells the LA Times‘ Hero Complex:
Fox and Bay have yet to respond to EW’s request for comment on LaBeouf’s analysis of their working relationship, but it sounds plausible. I imagine the short-on-time version of that particular direction could sound brash to an actress who doesn’t realize Bay’s films are purely aesthetic. Whereas a model who’s used to her body being the focus of attention would go with it.
Also, can we discuss LaBeouf’s use of “Spice Girl strength”… Isn’t it amazing/sad that they are still our go-to pop culture reference for female empowerment (even if you do find yourself wondering whether the person saying it actually takes you seriously)?
