While discussing her new movie, Friends With Kids during the Toronto International Film Festival [TIFF], Megan Fox opened up just a a little, to Moviefone about her side of the Transformers controversy.

With the recent Shia Labeouf interview and the 'Transformers' situation, why didn't you clarify or defend yourself?
I didn't want to talk about it while they're on the press tour because I didn't want to try to throw mud at them. I didn't want that movie to suffer. Especially because I love Shia. I wanted that movie to do well for him. I didn't want to have this big media war over something that really was so silly and it would have just been my ego needing to engage in a war, at that point. Of course, there will be a time when I want to tell my side of the story. I just don't feel it was appropriate while they were promoting the movie.


Are you saying that was a no-win situation?
Right. Like, "She's trying to take away from the movie." So it was best to let them say what they were going to say. It's fine.


With everything that happened with the 'Transformers 3' situation with you ...
With what you read in the press.


Well, yes. And I get why you wouldn't be happy, but at the same time I'd kind of want to know how the story, the movie itself, ends. Did you see 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon'?
I haven't seen it yet, but I will see it. I mean, if they hadn't been hitting me so hard on the press tour, I would have gone to the theater. But I felt like that would have been a disaster: Me sitting with a packed theater of people watching the movie. So I didn't go. I mean, I have nothing against watching it. And I love Shia to death; I love him unconditionally. And I love that crew. I'm really close to the hair, makeup and wardrobe that made that movie. I want to see it for them. I know it looked amazing in the trailer. Out of all three trailers, that was the trailer that I was like, "Wow, sh*t, this is a huge movie." So I think it will be an interesting, fun thing to watch, I just haven't gotten around to it yet.


I'm picturing the blog headlines, "Megan Fox Watches 'Transformers'!"
I couldn't do it. Then that would turn into not just me wanting to see the movie, that would have been like, "She's trying to take attention from the movie by being at the theater when it's released." It's a lose-lose. So I'll just watch it on Netflix back home.


Looks like Fox is taking the high road here, after Michael Bay and the LeBeouf literally ran an old-school "smear campaign" against Fox while promoting the movie. Maybe Miss Fox isn't as bad as Hollywood tries to make her out to be or maybe she's just maturing. Regardless, we know they will make a sequel with the box office numbers Dark of the Moon garnered, so maybe Fox, Bay, and LeBeouf will reconcile their differences and she'll rejoin the team......(probably, not). Oh well, enjoy this photo gallery, in the meantime.







Transformers: Dark of the Moon is a 2011 American science fiction-action film based on the Transformers toy line. First released on June 23, 2011, it is the third installment of the live-action Transformers film series. Like its predecessors, Transformers and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Transformers: Dark of the Moon is directed by Michael Bay and produced by Steven Spielberg. The film's story structure revolves around a genuine NASA manned mission to the Moon. Three years after the events of the second film and 42 years after the Apollo 11 space race, the Autobots continue to work for the NEST (Networked Elements: Supporters and Transformers) military force. Meanwhile, the Decepticons unveil a plan to use the new groundbreaking technology, the Pillars, to enslave Humanity in order to save the home planet of the Transformers, Cybertron.

Shia LaBeouf, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson, and John Turturro reprised their starring roles, with Peter Cullen and Hugo Weaving returning to voice the characters Optimus Prime and Megatron, and Kevin Dunn and Julie White reprising their roles as the parents of the main protagonist, Sam Witwicky. English model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley replaced Megan Fox as the lead female character; the cast also saw the additions of Patrick Dempsey, John Malkovich, Ken Jeong, and Frances McDormand. Leonard Nimoy, Keith Szarabajka, Ron Bottitta, John DiMaggio, George Coe, and Francesco Quinn joined the film's voice cast. The script was written by Ehren Kruger, who also collaborated on the narrative of the second film of the series. Bay has stated this would be his last installment in the series. Dark of the Moon was shot with both regular 35mm film cameras and specially developed 3-D cameras, with filming locations including Indiana, Washington, D.C., Moscow, Florida, and Chicago. The film was rendered specifically for 3-D, and the visual effects involved more complex robots which took longer to render.

Megan Fox is WAY hotter than Rosie.
AlcoholicA - 9/12/2011, 5:57 PM
Her in Transformers 1 had a huge impact on my happy time.
krooklyndodger - 9/12/2011, 5:57 PM
Who cares?! This is hardly headline news. She stepped on her own toes for complaining about Bay and she hasn't had any real luck with getting good movie roles. She's hot and all, but maybe she needs to go the route of indies for a while.
secretasianboy - 9/12/2011, 6:01 PM
hate but she's still really hot
FireKnightRises - 9/12/2011, 6:01 PM

AsianVersionOfET - 9/12/2011, 6:09 PM
She's the spawn of Satan.
redrum010 - 9/12/2011, 6:11 PM
She was perfect in Transformers because it's a fun movie with a bad director and bad actors.
shackle - 9/12/2011, 6:13 PM
It's trendy to hate on Fox, but her only real crime is overexposure. She's no worse than 90% of the actors, male or female, of her age. And laying low while Bay and LeDouche were dragging her name through the mud during the promotion of T3 was a helluva lot classier than their schtick. I do agree with the poster above, though; if she wants to be taken seriously as an actress, she needs to get out of the spotlight and do some theater or small indie films for a while. If she doesn't really care about her reputation as an actress, why not stay the course she's on? She's making money and in demand; the iron is hot, as they say. She's banking a hell of a lot more than the basement trolls slagging on her.

Feel sorry 4 her, her careers practically over, but hell from every interview she's ever done she always seemed stuck up and bitchy... oh well... guess we can call her the new Jessica Alba...
Ghostt - 9/12/2011, 6:25 PM
I like her slightly better now. But she screwed her career up. I like the photobucket pics. nice.

@ shackle - 9/12/2011, 6:13 PM

I agree with you 100%. During Transformers: Dark of the Moon buzz, all we've heard Michael Bay and his sycophants rely on what Megan Fox did to promote. Hey, it worked, because the film made a billion dollars. That's James Cameron money that everyone has earned. Megan Fox not responding to any of this was a surprising move on her behalf. I'm sure everyone so hung up and miserable over her would agree.

If only there were ways to make Justin Bieber, Kim Kardashian, and Paris Hilton irrelevant instead. Like they're grandiose Samaritans that deserve to share oxygen.
RoadDogXXIV - 9/12/2011, 7:23 PM
By the way: "She's banking a hell of a lot more than the basement trolls slagging on her" is one of my favorite comments in the world.
Triptheorist - 9/12/2011, 7:24 PM
Did Megan Fox actually just exhibit restraint and tact? WTFapocalypse!!!
Misterfan - 9/12/2011, 7:25 PM
lying bitch, i bet she watched that movie at least 12 times cursing at Rosie and M.Bay, while eating buckets of ice cream screaming "i hate you Michael Bay, I f**king hate your guts" ...but I would so bone her with all that cream on her face.
ScionStorm - 9/12/2011, 8:05 PM
@AsianVersionOfET- Your right. With the right makeup and prosthetic boobs I can kind of see her playing Satana. Good casting. ;)
eleven59 - 9/12/2011, 8:05 PM
Wow, she kind of does look like the girl I had a crush on but who never liked me....
Mentok - 9/12/2011, 8:13 PM
Love Megan, loooooove her....
blackscienceman - 9/12/2011, 8:14 PM
wow, where is tea when you need him
DeathGambit - 9/12/2011, 8:20 PM
eye candy and that was it, she can not act.
batmanrises - 9/12/2011, 8:34 PM
Dude Megan learned to keep her mouth shut...What's it gonna take for Shia to learn the same? She shows a lot of class not responding to Shia talking about banging her.
batmitedimension - 9/12/2011, 8:49 PM
I LOVE HER! And I find her to better than all these people who trashed-talked about her!
CVTom - 9/12/2011, 8:52 PM
The Transformers movies made her a star and ALL of the movies she's done since have been four finger stinkers. It was her opening her mouth about how you don't need to be a good actor to be in those type of movies for it to be a hit... and she is living proof of that, isn't she??
NERO - 9/12/2011, 8:53 PM
Wow, I guess shooting your mouth off and almost totally derailing your career can in fact teach even the most hard headed person humility.
