Fired for Being Too Skinny

Fired for Being Too Skinny

The Megan Fox saga continues. The Wrap is reporting that the reason why Megan Fox was let go from Transformers 3 was because she showed up looking “pale,” “underweight” and “unhealthy” and the director, Michael Bay didn’t like how she looked.

Am I going to believe that an actress showed up on a set for the first day of shooting not having been seen by anyone on the production team for a big budget Hollywood movie in weeks before filming starts? No costume fittings? No meetings? No nothing? Bullshit. This is also a woman who shows up in the tabloids, so I don’t think I am going out on a limb by saying that she has not been invisible over the last weeks and months.

The piece says:

Fox came to work as a “size 0” and Bay gave her two to four weeks to return to a “size 2 or 4” so she would have the same sexy curves that Bay’s camera lingered on in the original “Transformers.”

The whole thing smells really bad as a colleague emailed me last night (thanks for the link Anna.)

I have a sneaky suspicion that there is some serious ass covering going on here probably to protect themselves from lawsuits.

The article goes on to say that Fox will be replaced by Rosie Huntington-Whitely. No offense to Ms. Huntington-Whitely but check out this recent picture of her. Does this woman look heavier than Megan Fox? Looks like she’s a size negative 2.

Note to Bay. If you are going to say that you are replacing an actress because she is too thin maybe the actress you hire to replace her should not be even thinner than the one you just fired.

This story is just getting more and more bizarre and I’m sure we have not heard the end of it.
