    Megan Fox on being sacked from Transformers

    A little different from the usual news but Megan Fox will have an article in the next issue of Cosmopolitan and she talks about being fired from Transformers.

    “That was absolutely the low point of my career,” Megan admits. “But without – ‘that thing’, I wouldn’t have learned as quickly as I did. All I had to do was apologise - and I refused. I was so self-righteous at 23, I couldn’t see [that] it was for the greater good. I really thought I was Joan of Arc.”

    “It hurt me and a lot of other people. However, that darkness that descended caused enormous and brisk spiritual growth. Once I realised I [had] brought it on myself, it was an invaluable learning experience, looking back on it.”

    Unfortunately, the one thing she did not learn from the ordeal was how to act.

    I know she went through some shit & didn't really deserve any of it but she is STILL a terrible performer. Had no business being April O Neil.

    Well, she sounds... more pretentious than I would have expected.

    Why was she fired anyway?

    Still don't believe that actually happened.
    And i think it's hilarious there are still people claiming she's the worst actres ever to be on screen.
    She's as good an actress as most. There are worse and there are better, but acting is no brain surgery, there's no real merrit to it.

    She is a good actress, I very like her acting in TF1 and ROTF, I was very up set when she has gone. Now I'm very glad that she works with MB on TMNT and enjoy her role, since I love TMNT too. I was a big fan in childhood. Interesting I understand her very much, I also had to live through huge problems when I was 23 and my attitude to life changed for better. And it's obviously she became wise too. Unlike Shia LeBouf, btw:(

    I thought she was fine as April in all honesty. It's on time the TMNT films called for Oscar-level performances. The film's were enjoyable too.

    I think Megan Fox is hot, and a decent person, but her acting is mediocre.

    Her performance as April O'Neil was awful, particularly her "childhood pet" rant. Her other films - Jennifer's Body, Jonah Hex, How to Lose Friends and Alienate people, Bayformers - she was okay, and nothing much beyond fanservice.


    However, she admits she was being a prima donna and is trying to be better. That's better than Shia, who seems to have fallen into a self-destructive spiral.

    I don't get why her acting skills are so important when it's obvious her looks matter most.

    When a woman is that hot, do you really care at all? Her and Bumblebee helped sell the camaro.

    I’m still a bit bitter that she was fired. I didn’t think she was too bad in the Transformers films and I am still a firm believer to this day that the scene between Megatron and Carly in DOTM belonged to Mikaela. It does suck that Megan has kind of fallen out of the spotlight, though. She’s not as mainstream as she was about a decade ago.

    As mediocre an actress as Fox is, there's just something about Carly that I liked much much less. Carly was just a lot more annoying I guess. I wish Mikaela had been able to stay in the cast and maybe she could have some kind of cameo in a future movie?
