Michael Bay told Megan Fox to shut up

Meganfox We’re all sorts of busy ignoring more timely celebrity news this weekend, so we’ll point out that Michael Bay totally slammed Megan Fox in an interview in the Wall Street Journal last week. Why? Just because she said his movies stunk?

“I mean, I can’t s--- on this movie because it did give me a career and open all these doors for me,” Fox told Entertainment Weekly. “But I don’t want to blow smoke up people’s a--. People are well aware that this is not a movie about acting.”

Bay’s response: “Well, that’s Megan Fox for you. She says some very ridiculous things because she’s 23 years old and she still has a lot of growing to do.”

Michael “100 percent disagrees” with Fox, saying that even though he shoots action-oriented pics, he’s worked with some huge names.

Nick Cage wasn’t a big actor when I cast him, nor was Ben Affleck before I put him in Armageddon. Shia LaBeouf wasn’t a big movie star before he did Transformers — and then he exploded. Not to mention Will Smith and Martin Lawrence, from Bad Boys.” So, Megan should mind her Ps and Qs, thanks.

“Nobody in the world knew about Megan Fox until I found her and put her in Transformers,” he says. “I like to think that I’ve had some luck in building actors’ careers with my films.”

Yeah, but show us one actor who won an award for starring in one of those flicks. McDonald’s doesn’t win any restaurant awards, you know.
