[ # ] Megan Fox clarifies her past interviews about Michael Bay
June 23rd, 2020 under Megan Fox

Over the weekend, Megan Fox and Michael Bay were trending on Twitter because of past things that the actress said about the director when he hired her for two of his movies. In 2009, she talked to Jimmy Kimmel about Bay casting her as an extra in Bad Boys II when she was just 15 years old, and she was only wearing a bikini. He filmed her under a waterfall for her scene. People said he sexualized her.

That was not the only time, there was another interview when she reportedly told the interviewer that he made her wash his car as he filmed her to get a role in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.

When Fox found out about these stories resurfacing, she decided to release a statement clarifying what she meant:

I know that a discussion has erupted online surrounding some of my experiences in Hollywood and the subsequent mishandling of this information by the media and society in general.

While I greatly appreciate the outpouring of support, I do feel I need to clarify some of the details as they have been lost in the retelling of the events and cast a sinister shadow that doesn’t really, in my opinion, belong. At least not where it’s currently being projected…

I was around 15 or 16 years old when I was an extra in Bad Boys II. There are multiple interviews where I shared the anecdote of being chosen for the scene and the conversations that took place surrounding it. It’s important to note however that when I auditioned for Transformers I was 19 or 20.

I did ‘work’ (me pretending to know how to hold a wrench) on one of Michael’s Ferrari’s during one of the audition scenes. It was at the Platinum Dunes studio parking lot, there were several other crew members and employees present and I was at no point undressed or anything similar.

Please hear me when I thank you for your support. But these specific instances were inconsequential in a long and arduous journey along which I have endured some genuinely harrowing experiences in a ruthlessly misogynistic industry.
There are many names that deserve to be going viral in cancel culture right now, but they are safely stored in the fragmented recesses of my heart.

But when it comes to my direct experiences with Michael, and Steven for that matter, I was never assaulted or preyed upon in what I felt was a sexual manner.

I’m thankful to all of you who are brave enough to speak out and I’m grateful to all of you who are taking it upon yourselves to support, uplift, and bring comfort to those who have been harmed by a violent and toxic societal paradigm.

You know that she is serious about getting the truth out there because she has yet to release any statements about the demise of her marriage to Brian Austin Green.
