Sometimes actors and directors just don’t get along. This could be because the actor or actress in question is totally temperamental or because the director is. Actors and actresses typically get a bad rap. Much of the time, we assume that they are self-centered and capricious and believe that they are the center of attention. But what happens when the director is like this or, worse yet, when it is both the actor/actress and the director? This can quickly turn any set into a nightmare. We are looking at 7 of the most famous actor/director feuds in Hollywood history – enjoy!
7. Michael Bay vs. Megan Fox
Michael Bay made Megan Fox a star when he cast her in the first two “Transformers” films and then he took it all away when he fired her from the third installment of the series. To be fair, she kind of did it to herself when she insulted him in an interview with Wonderland Magazine. “He’s like Napoleon and he wants to create this insane, infamous mad-man reputation,” she said. “He wants to be like Hitler on his sets, and he is. So he’s a nightmare to work for but when you get him away from set, and he’s not in director mode, I kind of really enjoy his personality because he’s so awkward, so hopelessly awkward. He has no social skills at all. And it’s endearing to watch him.”
It took years, but these two eventually made amends. Bay gave Fox a role in “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” and then all was forgiven. “He was one of the most lovely people that I dealt with in making this movie,” she told EW. “I’ve always loved Michael. We’ve had our battles in the past but even when I’ve been really outspoken about difficulties we’ve had, I’ve always followed up by saying that I have a particular affinity to him.”
