During quarantine, many had more free time. Some network users have spent it searching the Internet archives and revising old videos.
So the other day, a video of an interview with Megan Fox, which the actress made in 2009, went viral. As a guest on Jimmy Kimmel, she shared her filming experience with Michael Bay in an episode of Bad Boys 2 when she was just 15 years old.
Michael Bay and Megan Fox
I was chosen to shoot the scene in the club, I wore a star striped bikini, a red cowboy hat and I wore six inch heels. Michael approved that, but the guys on the team said, “She’s only 15, we can’t put her in the bar and give her a drink in our hands.” Then he solved this problem by including me in the scene where I was dancing under a waterfall. I was 15, I was in tenth grade. But this is an example of how Michael Bay’s brain works,
– Megan said then.
Megan Fox and Jimmy Kimmel
Yes, this is an example of how each of us has a brain. But some of us have the decency to suppress these thoughts and pretend they don’t exist,
– with a commented laugh on the revelation of host actress Jimmy Kimmel.
Then his reaction did not seem to shock anyone, and the audience in the audience laughed at the “joke”, but now the video has caused a storm of indignation on the net. Users noted how uncomfortable the actress was after Kimmel’s sentence, and also accused Hollywood directors of constantly using Megan’s sexuality and ruining her career, calling her a bad actress.
“Megan Fox tells how Michael Bay made her a sex diva at 15 years old. The crowd laughs and Kimmel jokes. “Adolescents chased by adult men have never been taken seriously, and now they are not.”
“What were they thinking of when inviting a 15 year old girl to the role of party girl in a bikini?”“We need more shows with women presenters. I’m sure this conversation would have been different if the woman had led. ”
You can also find information on the network that Fox encountered an inappropriate attitude towards herself during the casting of the film “Transformers” (Michael Bay was also the director of the photo and Steven Spielberg was the producer).
Today, fans of the actress call for a boycott of these two influential people in the Hollywood film industry, and also demand that they be held accountable for their unfair treatment of Fox and the destruction of his career. Recall that the actress was dismissed from the shooting of the third franchise film after comparing the director Michael Bay to Adolf Hitler. The manager himself later said that the initiator of the layoff was Steven Spielberg.

Internet fan discussions seem to have caught the eye of Fox herself. The 34-year-old actress wrote a call to her fans, thanking them for their support, but urging them not to condemn anyone.
I know there has been a discussion on the net about my experience in Hollywood and the misuse of this information by the press and the general public. Although I really appreciate your support, I think that some details need to be clarified, as they were lost during the story. I was about 15 or 16 when I played Bad Boys 2, and there are several interviews where I shared a story about how I was chosen for the scene. However, it is important to note that when I auditioned for the film Transformers, I was 19 or 20 years old. I did my job pretending to know how to handle a key while standing in front of the Ferrari. It was in the parking lot of the Platinum Dunes studio, there were several other team members and employees, and I was never offered to undress or anything like that. I was no longer a minor and I did not have to wash the car. Whatever opinions may form around these episodes, I would like them to be based on facts. Please hear me when I thank you for your support. But these specific cases were of no consequence in a long and difficult journey, during which I experienced really painful moments in this ruthless misogynistic industry. There are many names that deserve to be boycotted right now, but they are stored deep in my heart. Regarding my direct experience with Michael and Stephen, I have never found anything on their side that could be called sexual harassment or insult,
