While Megan Fox claims she left the Transformers franchise on her own, director Michael Bay tells the latest issue of GQ that it was her comparison of him to Hitler that led to her ousting – and that it was producer Steven Spielberg’s decision to let her go.
“She was in a different world, on her BlackBerry,” Bay says of the star. “You gotta stay focused. And you know, the Hitler thing. Steven said, ‘Fire her right now.'”

Bay says he’s not mad at Fox (“When you’re days and months on a set, it’s like a family. You say rude things and you make up.”), but he also sarcastically apologizes to her:

“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.”

 

 

Fox had made the comment to British magazine Wonderland before filming began:

“He’s like Napoleon and he wants to create this insane, infamous madman reputation,” she said of Bay. “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. He’s vulnerable and fragile in real life and then on set he’s a tyrant. Shia [LaBeouf] and I almost die when we make a Transformers movie. He has you do some really insane things that insurance would never let you do.”

Previously it had been rumored that Fox quit because Bay made her act like a stripper. Co-star Shia LaBeouf told the LAT:

“Megan developed this Spice Girl strength, this woman-empowerment [stuff] that made her feel awkward about her involvement with Michael, who some people think is a very lascivious filmmaker, the way he films women,” LaBeouf said. “Mike films women in a way that appeals to a 16-year-old sexuality. It’s summer. It’s Michael’s style. And I think [Fox] never got comfortable with it. This is a girl who was taken from complete obscurity and placed in a sex-driven role in front of the whole world and told she was the sexiest woman in America. And she had a hard time accepting it. When Mike would ask her to do specific things, there was no time for fluffy talk. We’re on the run. And the one thing Mike lacks is tact. There’s no time for [LaBeouf assumes a gentle voice] ‘I would like you to just arch your back 70 degrees.’
