"Megan developed this Spice Girl strength, this woman-empowerment [stuff] that made her feel awkward about her involvement with [director] Michael Bay, who some people think is a very lascivious filmmaker, the way he films women," LaBeouf tells The Los Angeles Times.
"Mike films women in a way that appeals to a 16-year-old sexuality. It's summer. It's Michael's style. And I think [Fox] never got comfortable with it," he added. "This is a girl who was taken from complete obscurity and placed in a sex-driven role in front of the whole world and told she was the sexiest woman in America. And she had a hard time accepting it."
I'm sorry, who would not feel comfortable with all that? This Megan Fox not thinking she is super hot thing is getting old. I think we all know that she knows she's freakin' sexy. All she's got to do is look in the mirror and she sees a smoking hot bombshell.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is Megan's new replacement and Shia says that the energy is completely different because Rosie knows how to work what her mama gave her.
"Rosie comes with this Victoria's Secret background, and she's comfortable with it, so she can get down with Mike's way of working and it makes the whole set vibe very different," LaBeouf said.
Rosie is going to be amazing in the film! If Megan's not comfortable with being viewed as a sex symbol, she can stop doing sexy photo shoots and stick to weird movies that no one watches.
