They were told this by "an individual close to the actress" and when asked, her publicist responded to them with "left the project on her own and wishes the franchise well".
In 2011, however, Michael Bay stated in an interview with GQ magazine that it had been Steven Spielberg, executive producer of the Transformers movies, who had urged him to fire Fox following the Hitler comparison.
Megan Fox (born May 16, 1986) is an American actress.
She is best known as the second actress to play Sydney Shanowski in the sitcom Hope & Faith and as Carla in Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen.
An allegedly self-described comic book geek (be still our hearts), she collects books such as Witchblade and the more obscure Fathom and Gen She takes umbrage with her character in Transformers for not wearing a seatbelt.
Fox was originally scheduled to appear in the third live-action Transformers movie, but was suddenly dropped from the cast on May 19, 2010.
After starring in Transformers and its sequel, Revenge of the Fallen, Megan Fox rose to infamy due to her being fired from the third installment, Dark of the Moon.
The invasive cameraman provoked La Beouf by more or less accusing him of being the reason behind Fox’s divorce from Brian Austin Green. As La Beouf pulled into his driveway, a paparazzo was waiting on his property and asked, “Is it true you’ve been dating Megan Fox?
During her acceptance speech at the 2009 Scream Awards, Fox explicitly objected "a lot of false reports" about how she feels about Revenge, and stated that she always was an "ordinary part of an extraordinary film".
Gossip site The Wrap subsequently claimed Fox had quit Dark of the Moon because Bay had been verbally abusive and "she had enough".
” La Beouf promptly told the man to “Get the f*ck away from my f*cking house.” But the man did not leave his house and instead repeated the question.
Fox commented negatively on the Transformers sequel, claiming that it was "not a movie about acting" and she spent most of the time "running or screaming, or both" Following the release of the movie, Fox stated in a Wonderland magazine interview that Bay had a Hitler-like dictator persona on set, and off the set was very socially awkward in an otherwise warm review of the man.
The letter was quickly removed and Michael Bay himself soon responded, saying he didn't condone either the letter or Fox's outlandish comments, but noted her "crazy quips" were part of her "crazy charm", and since they had a good relationship, he expected further outrageous comments from Fox in the lead up to the third Transformers installment.
