Megan Fox expects us to believe that she voluntarily walked away from her leading role in the blockbuster action-flick franchise Transformers.
Uh-huh…And I’m Betty White.
Megan, who solidified her status as a modern day sex symbol playing Shia LaBeouf’s sultry love interest in the first two Transformers movies, has been dropped from the third, Paramount Studio chiefs said Wednesday. Fox, however, denies that she was dropped at all. The star’s pokesperson has moved swiftly to dismiss rumors the actress was fired – insisting it was the star’s decision to leave the franchise.
“Megan Fox will not be starring in Transformers 3. It was her decision not to return. She wishes the franchise the best.”
Megan, who is notorious for making headline-grabbing comments to the media, engaged in a public spat with Transformers director Michael Bay last summer. Bay later defended the star and said he looked forward to working with her on part three.
According to sources familiar with the production, Bay reportedly wanted to take the story in a different direction and wanted a new actress to play Shia LaBeouf’s love interest.
Fox played the role of Mikaela Banes in the first Transformers film released in 2007 and reprised her role in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, released last June.
