Oh, dear, Megan, Part 1
So as I'm sure everybody in the free world knows, Rosie Huntington-Whitely replaced Megan Fox as Shia LaBeouf's arm candy in the latest installment of the unbelievably profitable Transformers franchise. Why the switcheroo? It may have something to do with Fox's unfortunate decision to compare director Michael Bay's on-set manner to that of a dictator - specifically, Hitler.
Or maybe Movieline was right when it suggested that the real key is to be found in LaBeouf's recent interview with the Los Angeles Times. Remember this amazing line?
“When Mike would ask her to do specific things, there was no time for fluffy talk. We’re on the run. And the one thing Mike lacks is tact. There’s no time for [LaBeouf assumes a gentle voice] ‘I would like you to just arch your back 70 degrees.’”
Apparently, Megan Fox remembers it - only too well. She seems to have crashed the recent VIP screening of Transformers: Dark of the Moon at the IMAX Waterloo in London...
