Megan Fox in 2020: She deserves an apology and career success now
Megan Fox rose to fame after the debut of Michael Bay’s Transformers in 2007. Honestly she’s been in many iconic roles over the years and we can’t help but stan. 2020 has been no one’s year and that includes Megan Fox. It’s about time she gets the apology she deserves.
Fox has been in the public eye not only for her acting, but also her personal life. The thirty-four year old actress now has three children with ex-husband Brian Green.
Megan Fox’s role in Transformers boosted her profile. She was even named “sexiest woman alive” – but this came with baggage. Here’s why Megan Fox deserves an apology.
Jimmy Kimmel interview
In 2009, Megan Fox appeared on Jimmy Kimmel’s talk show in a now-famous interview discussing her career. Megan revealed that Transformers wasn’t the first time that she had worked with Michael Bay.
At just fifteen years old, Fox walked onto the set of Bad Boys 2 wearing nothing but a revealing bikini & heels. In the interview, Megan goes on to say that Bay had her stand underneath a waterfall while wearing the outfit.
It’s just all kinds of wrong.
Jennifer’s Body deserved more
Jennifer’s Body is iconic. There’s no two ways about it. So when people started criticizing the film and also Megan Fox, it took a toll on Fox’s health. Megan played the role of Jennifer in the film and we have to say she was phenomenal. However not everyone would agree.
The film’s marketing campaign was hypersexualized (as are a lot of campaigns) and this caused Fox to retreat. Megan Fox said in an interview with ET: “I didn’t want to be seen. I didn’t want to have to take a photo, do a magazine, walk a carpet. I didn’t want to be seen in public at all.”
Megan went on to say: “Even though I consider myself a feminist, I feel like feminists don’t want me to be a part of their group,” she said. Every woman deserves their chance to speak up against wrongdoings, and celebrities are no exception.
Excluded from #MeToo
Megan may have been named the sexiest woman alive but that isn’t to say she’s just that and nothing more. Fox has not been one to shy away from standing up against those who’ve wronged her. When discussing her personal issues, Fox felt as if she wasn’t allowed to be feeling the way she was.
In the same interview with ET: “I was speaking out and saying, ‘Hey, these things are happening to me and they’re not OK,’ and everyone was like, ‘Oh well, f*** you. We don’t care, you deserve it.’ Because everybody talked about how you looked or how you dressed or the jokes you made.”
Michael Bay letter
Micheal Bay & Megan Fox haven’t been friends for a very long time and with good reason. Bay has trash-talked Megan in Hollywood over her recent interviews. An open letter was released addressing Megan’s comments surrounding Bay’s directing.
“Michael found this shy, inexperienced girl, plucked her out of total obscurity thus giving her the biggest shot of any young actresses’ life. [ . . . ] She was the next Angelina Jolie, hooray! Wait a minute, two of us worked with Angelina – second thought – she’s no Angelina. You see, Angelina is a professional.”
“We know this quite intimately because we’ve had the tedious experience of working with the dumb-as-a-rock Megan Fox on both Transformers movies. [. . .] When facing the press, Megan is the queen of talking trailer trash and posing like a porn star. And yes we’ve had the unbearable time of watching her try to act on set, and yes, it’s very cringe-able. So maybe, being a porn star in the future might be a good career option.”
This open letter continues for quite some time, ripping Megan Fox & her acting career to shreds. Yes, Transformers catapulted Megan Fox’s career, but she was quite well-known from her acting career of six years prior.
Michael Bay denied he had any participation in the letter since.
