The Real Reason Why Hollywood Dumped Megan Fox


Michael Bay’s first Transformers movie turned
Megan Fox into an instant star. Men’s magazines couldn’t get enough of her,
and her future in Hollywood seemed all but bulletproof. Who knew that a mere decade later, Fox would
still be playing second fiddle to CGI creations? Outside of the running-on-fumes Teenage Mutant
Ninja Turtles franchise, her box office prospects have been pretty dire of late. “I am still socially relevant.” Here’s why Hollywood won’t cast Megan Fox
anymore. Transformer trouble You’d think an actress would stay faithful
to the franchise that launched her stardom, but there’s been some bad blood between Megan
Fox and the crew of Transformers. When Michael Bay cast Megan Fox in 2007’s
toy-centric blockbuster, she was still mostly unknown outside of a few small TV roles. By the time Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
rolled out in 2009, Fox was a mega-star…who had a few mega problems with her starring
vehicle. Fox took shots at the effects-heavy Revenge,
telling Entertainment Weekly, “People are well aware that this is not a movie about
acting.” But even that comment was tame compared to
the way she described Michael Bay: “He wants to be like Hitler on his sets, and he is.” Whoops! Comparing your boss to history’s most infamous
genocidal dictator isn’t going to fly in most workplaces. Bay told GQ that while Fox was part of the
rehearsal process for Transformers: Dark of the Moon early on, she was dropped before
filming began. Bay recalled, “[Fox] was in a different world,
on her BlackBerry. You gotta stay focused. And you know, the Hitler thing. Steven [Spielberg] said, ‘Fire her right now.'” Dark of the Moon screenwriter Ehren Kruger
echoed that sentiment, saying that Fox “seemed like an actress who didn’t want to be a part
of it. She was saying she wanted to, but she wasn’t
acting like it.” Flop fest Transformers may have raked in truckloads
of cash, but Megan Fox’s three follow-up films crashed and burned spectacularly. First was 2009’s Jennifer’s Body, a low budget
horror thriller that attempted to build off Fox’s growing star power by putting her front
and center in the marketing campaign. But reviews were mixed, and the R-rated film
earned a mere $6.8 million on its opening weekend. Then, Fox appeared in 2010’s Jonah Hex, a
critical and box office disaster. She now openly admits that Jonah Hex was a
turkey, saying in 2016 that “no one should ever see that movie.” The same year, Fox made a stab for indie cred
with Passion Play, a 2010 drama starring Mickey Rourke, Bill Murray, and Rhys Ifans. Despite the all-star cast, the film was critically
reviled and only played in a handful of theaters before being dumped to DVD. Even Mickey Rourke slammed it, dubbing it
“another terrible movie” on his resume. And Mickey Rourke knows a few things about
terrible movies. Overexposed Around the time of the one-two career sucker
punch of Revenge of the Fallen and Jennifer’s Body, the Megan Fox backlash began. The combination of the massive marketing for
her movies and her appearance on every late night talk show, magazine, and online photo
gallery caused serious Fox fatigue. “Megan Fox Media Oversaturation syndrome is
a neurobiological disorder stemming from oversaturation of Megan Fox related media” It got so bad, several men’s websites actually
called for “A Day Without Megan Fox” boycott. When even AskMen.com is tired of seeing Fox
in various states of undress, something is definitely off. “This would be a perfect moment, except you
landed on my testicles.” False starts Fox has been linked to a number of would-be
franchises over the years, including a film version of the ’90s “bad girl” comic Fathom,
which revolves around aquatic heroine Aspen. But the project stalled, with Fox admitting
in 2014 that she may be getting too old to play the twenty-something character. And with so much of the film set underwater,
“unless James Cameron is going to direct it I don’t know how we’re going to make it happen.” And seriously, if you’re looking to get past
your sex icon typecasting, this probably isn’t the role to make it happen. Jane Eyre, maybe. Or Lady Wolfman. But…not Aspen. Fox did return to blockbuster filmmaking as
April O’Neil in the 2014 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot. But after the sequel, Teenage Mutant Ninja
Turtles: Out of the Shadows, grossed half of what its predecessor made, the third installment
may never make it out of its shell, marking yet another failed franchise in the Fox filmography. A comedic return Fox has found success in recent years by taking
supporting roles in comedies where she can tweak her aloof, glamorous image. She showed off her comedic side with turns
in This Is 40 and The Dictator, and joined New Girl as a regular cast member in 2016
while star Zooey Deschanel was on maternity leave. Meanwhile, her role in the James Franco period
comedy Zeroville proves that there’s life after Bay for Megan Fox. If she keeps working in roles like these,
Megan Fox may still have a long career in Hollywood ahead of her. And hey! If acting jobs dry up, Fox can always try
working as a studio executive: “I am going to eat your soul.” See? She’s a natural! Thanks for watching! Click the Looper icon to subscribe to our

    Um , 😬Unfortunately there is this thing with Meghan in Hollywood .😰😱😨😵😬😲😯😶 She is gorgous AF , but the problem is her Childish LA valley girl voice that has just recked her potentiall to have versatility in her career as an actress .

    She has been limited on what roles she has pursued for years . I mean you wont see her in period pieces , voice overs for Animation movies , Rom – Coms , or war movies because of her voice really . I mean she could have been a great Marvel movie , DC movie , Captain America movie female prospect , or a Wonder Woman prospect for years now if she worked on her voice a little . But she has been difficult to work with , with her entitlement issues on movie sets the last decade .

    Can anyone really picture her 👄 talking with that ditzy voice of hers in a serious movie with substance ? Lol 😜

    She’s a Rude Nasty Bitch , She has a History of treating people like shit , This is the reason why …
    Don’t take me the wrong way I think she’s a very beautiful woman but her beauty is only skin deep it does not reflect the person that she is on the inside if she looks like the person that she has on the inside she would just be another nasty person through and through …..

    Maybe because she has no talent at all, and even her beauty can't hide this fact.

    As for myself, I don't endorse the crap she says about men. So, I don't watch her movies because I know she's there only because she's a pretty face and talk feminist bullshit.

    If Hollywood doesn't want her anymore she can always come stay with me! I suspect Hollywood doesn't employ her anymore because she refused to suck off some fat greasy executive type dickhead.

    Farfetched conclusions in this video. She has a nice family and seems to be happy. Also I don't want to think about what not acting like she's a part of the team means after the Weinstein scandal (and all top paid actors staying silent about it.) Weinstein is just the tip of the iceberg, mark my words. I feel sorry for women in Hollywood. Disliked. The quality of the channel's content is deteriorating.

    This is pitiful, people has this amazing woman all because she speaks about the injustice she has suffered and whenever she doesn't want to be stiffy fuel she's hated
    She's an amazing woman with an amazing family and is just trying to Live her life and people hate her because she doesn't want to be eye candy

    From what I hear she’s really intelligent which is obviously surprising given her acting skills but apparently she is and I think she wanted success in Hollywood but she was totally disenfranchised with the over the top shallow and crazy behavior of people in the industry. It’s way worse than most people think.
    It’s very hard to live around those people. You’re never allowed to think for yourself and you’re not ever treated with common respect.
    No one cares about you there. Only what they need you for and it’s very tough to live in that kind of world and I think she just knew she was above it and she probably is

    Megan was cast for transformers as eye candy, and the fact that she knew exactly what that role was speaks of her self awareness and intelligence. She has made some great movies.
    I love “how to alienate ppl” and Jennifers body wasn’t bad. And now she’s doing great with solid tv work and a loving family. She’s doesn’t give oscar winning performances no, but she’s a great actress, intelligent and will forever be one of the most gorgeous women to be featured on the big screen 🤷🏻‍♂️

    Lame attempt Looper. She spoke her mind about the entitled men she worked with and refused to be used as a prop. I’d say she’s the winner in this scenario with her dignity and principals intact.

    This such a miss representation. Gossip and bad rep given by Looper. Megan Fox was committed to her new family and still is appearing in some movies.Why Hollywood would say such things????

    There is always 2 sides of the coins.
