Megan Fox Quit ‘Transformers 3′ Over Money?


Thursday, May 27, 2010

Megan FoxMEGAN Fox was paid just $800,000 to star in the blockbuster movie Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen — a salary that paled in comparison to that of her costar Shia LaBeouf.

Megan’s pay, coupled with the way she was treated by director Michael Bay, is why the star decided to quit the third film in the franchise, insiders say.

“Megan only got $800,000 for Transformers 2,” a source told E! News.

“I heard her say she only got $800,000 several times, and, I guarantee you, that’s why she didn’t do the third one. She wanted more money.

“[Megan] would constantly complain about having to go to work, she never wanted to do it.

“Bay would constantly scream at her. He would scream at everyone, but especially Megan. Imagine a really, really bitchy grandmother on the set, and that’s what Michael Bay is like.”

Previous reports claimed Fox quit the movie following a blazing row with Bay over her weight.

“Megan stormed out after a huge row with Michael Bay,” a source told British newspaper The Sun.

“He thinks she has lost too much weight and looks too frail. He wanted her to put on some weight and it all kicked off.

“The crew don’t think she looks well, let alone the wholesome, curvy star they cast in the first film.

“She’s going for this gaunt, pale image and it just looks unhealthy.”

    I told you about Bay. Scum bag Bay. I can’t believe she only got 800K..that is retarded. After taxes and all the agents and managers and assistants….that is just retarded. How can the studio insult he like that. I can’t wait till she has her vengeance by scoring a better role with bigger pay.

    Oh, definitely! I mean, if someone paid me $800,000 to show up somewhere for a few days and read a few lines off a teleprompter, I’d be pissed and complaining too!

    Can you imagine? Only $800,000 for a few MONTHS’ work? Shoot, that’s ridiculous. After agents, taxes, preparation, and personal assistants who take care of everything for you, that’s what, $200,000?

    I’d be so angry if I made that much in a month or two. I won’t even show up for under 2 Million.

    “He thinks she has lost too much weight and looks too frail. He wanted her to put on some weight and it all kicked off.”

    Oh, I hear that. I mean, she’s really struggling making $800K for a freaking movie in a terrible economy. I bet she can’t even afford to eat, then purge. It’s probably only purging.

    Speaking of, as you can tell, vomiting is my reaction when hearing people complain like this. Take your $200,000, send it to Africa or even Louisiana, and get off your g-d high horse. It must be really hard not getting your limbs cut off and having to read lines.

    What the heck is wrong with people and their senses of entitlement?

    You think?!?! If I paid you $800,000 dollars to do work for me over the course of a few weeks, and you constantly complained about having to show up . . . I’d do worse than scream. I’d take your money away, fire you, and make sure everyone who ever wanted to hire you knew what a PITA you were. Notwithstanding my prior comments about war and strife in other areas of the world.

    she doesn’t even deserve $800,000. does she honestly think she’s worth more than that. She really is delusional. ha ha ha maybe she’s frail and doesn’t eat because she only made $800,000. that’s not enough to buy food and also pay for her plastic surgery and fake tan – priorities, priorities.

    As hetoloser and whatever said, I couldn’t agree more!Megan just trying to save her REPUTATION since she got another movie out and don’t wanted other directors to think she is difficult to work with.

    Right she made a movie called “Jennifer’s Body” and it didn’t do good at the box office. So is it any wonder some movie studios may be wondering she got too hyped up by the media and can’t fill up movies’ seats with her name alone in a leading role?
