In the world of Hollywood, egos are everything! And on some sets, the divine creatures that make our movies, come face to face with egos that rival their own. When this happens, celebs get dissed, and while we laymen live for the fireworks, the loss of reputation can impact a star or the director for the rest of their careers. This list takes a look at some of the outspoken directors who publicly dissed their actors!
9. Michael Bay Slams Megan Fox
In an interview with Wonderland magazine, Megan Fox notoriously compared Michael Bay to both Napoleon and Hitler! She also commented that “[h]e has no social skills at all.” Needless to say, these statements resulted in an onslaught of refute. Crew members from Transformers wrote a letter basically calling Megan Fox dumb as dirt and unprofessional. Bay was now also at liberty to replace her in the third installment of Transformers. He also slammed Fox in an interview with GQ: “I’m sorry, Megan. I’m sorry I made you work twelve hours. I’m sorry that I’m making you show up on time. Movies are not always warm and fuzzy.” The mock apology worked to make Megan Fox look like a whiny child, and removed her from the lucrative franchise. The pair eventually made up when Bay cast her as April O’Neil in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Not quite Transformers, but it’ll have to do!
