Michael Bay cast Megan Fox in his Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot even after she compared him to Hitler. People just assumed he made her wash his Ferrari again but really all she had to do was beg and grovel to get a part.
A source tells Radar that Megan wasn’t being offered the leading roles she had been and she thought it was because of that Hitler comment she made.
Bad mouthing the person that launched your career? Gee, I don’t know why anyone would be apprehensive about hiring you after that.
But just in case that was why, Megan called Michael to say sorry. “So, she swallowed her pride, picked up the phone and spoke with him to clear the air and apologize. She told him how thankful she was to have been cast by him in the first place, and that she was totally out of line to say what she said. In the end she realized that Michael may be a hard taskmaster, but he does it purely to get the best out of his actors on set.”
Whoa, don’t go too far now. The secret to Michael Bay’s success is 1 part t & a and 2 parts explosions. He knows this. You don’t want to sound patronizing.
Eventually, Michael forgave her and offered her a role in TMNT because “he’s a big fan of hers.” Also because he already has the explosions. All he needs now is the t & a. “Hey, how about a scene where April O’Neil takes a shower,” suggested Michael Bay for no reason at all.
