Michael Bay Has No Hard Feelings For Former Ferrari-Detailer Who Called Him Hitler
As much as we love a vicious catfight, Movieline equally loves a peace accord (mainly because it opens the door for a good sucker-swat). So join us now live from the Victoria's Secret fashion show as Michael Bay -- feather-trimmed boob-for-boob the best lingerie-commercial director working on the planet today -- offers an olive branch to Megan Fox, the onetime-chamois-girl-turned-superstar whose candid appraisal of the director included a comparison to Hitler. Bay's not sweating it:
"I love her ... It's just, she's young. Everyone's got to give her a break, she only...23? It's just hard. I've traveled around the world with her and she's just like this world symbol now, you know?"
So he brushes her diatribes under the carpet? "Absolutely ... She called me (after the Hitler comment) and goes, 'It's all bullsh--t, Mike.' The press, they just like to prey, and stalk, and pounce and find a good little juicy thing. But she's always wanted to do these crazy comments. That's just her. She's great."
He alos [sic] said, "She's got a great part in Transformers 3," and he said he's currently working on the script. So Bay's not planning on getting revenge by, say, killing her off? "No, no. no," he said, dismissing it. "She gets enough of that already."
No revenge for Fox, but rather a juicy, range-stretching part in Transformers 3 in which she'll make her first screen appearance Turtle Waxing a Stealth Bomber with her whale tail peeking out. Congratulations, Megan!
