A day without Megan Fox? Websites for men say yes

Megan Fox this year has made the news every time she walked down the red carpet, offered a teasing sound bite, or did just about anything on a public street or right-of-way. The sex symbol who starred in “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen,” the year’s biggest movie so far, seemingly can do no wrong when it comes to getting attention.
But that’s just the problem. Reacting to the starlet’s omnipresence in the world of entertainment news, several men’s websites are banning Fox for a day. They say they have nothing against the Tennessee-born beauty, but they are still banning her from their sites on August 4.
“Enough is enough already!” men’s website Double Viking said on its website. “Yes, Megan Fox is banging. Yes Megan Fox is delicious. Yes Megan Fox farts rainbows. But seriously, enough is enough!”
Other websites that have joined the one-day ban include Asylum.com, AskMen.com and On205th.com.
As James Bassil, editor-in-chief of AskMen.com told the New York Daily News, “You can have too much of a good thing.”
“We’re joining in the media blackout and giving our readers a one-day reprieve from the woman we’ve been drowning in all summer,” Bassil said.
In her upcoming movie, “Jennifer’s Body,” Fox portrays a young woman who becomes possessed by a demon and begins to feed off the boys in her high-school, and in recent in recent days she has won headlines for saying she would like to “eat” Robert Pattinson, the star of “Twilight,” and Disney product Zac Efron.
So we wonder, is a self-described man eater afraid of a one-day ban from some men’s websites? Probably not.

How dare someone create a movie called 'Jennifers Body'. (And put Megan in it)
That's a great old-skool Hole song!!


My sister, 21, likes her though for some reason.

Haha,Thank You,I wondered if I was alone in thinking of that song everytime I have read about Megan's movie.
I don't see the big deal about Megan,sure she isn't ugly but I've seen plenty of common girls that look like her.

Fact? My husband never heard of her in his life and when I pointed her to him, he thought she was a cheap glamour model, and he absolutely hates glamour models.
And not everyone wants to look like Megan, I certainly wouldn't.

Nelson here...

I received this letter from crew members who've worked with Michael on Transformers. Below is their response to Megan Fox's recent comments in which she hurled insults at Michael Bay.

******

Nelson,

This is an open letter to all Michael Bay fans. We are three crew members that have worked with Michael for the past ten years. Last week we read the terrible article with inflammatory, truly trashing quotes by the Ms. Fox about Michael Bay. This letter is to set a few things straight.

Yes, Megan has great eyes, a tight stomach we spray with glycerin, and an awful silly Marilyn Monroe tattoo plastered on her arm that we cover up to keep the moms happy.

Michael found this shy, inexperienced girl, plucked her out of total obscurity thus giving her the biggest shot of any young actresses' life. He told everyone around to just trust him on his choice. He granted her the starring role in Transformers, a franchise that forever changed her life; she became one of the most googled and oogled women on earth. She was famous! She was the next Angelina Jolie, hooray! Wait a minute, two of us worked with Angelina – second thought – she’s no Angelina. You see, Angelia is a professional.

We know this quite intimately because we’ve had the tedious experience of working with the dumb-as-a-rock Megan Fox on both Transformers movies. We've spent a total of 12 months on set making these two movies.

We are in different departments; we can’t give our names because sadly doing so in Hollywood could lead to being banished from future Paramount work. One of us touches Megan’s panties, the other has the often ****ty job of pulling Ms. Sour pants out of her trailer, while another is near the Panaflex camera that helps to memorialize the valley girl on film.

Megan has the press fooled. When we read those magazines we wish we worked with that woman. Megan knows how to work her smile for the press. Those writers should try being on set for two movies, sadly she never smiles. The cast, crew and director make Transformers a really fun and energetic set. We’ve traveled around the world together, so we have never understood why Megan was always such – the grump of the set?

When facing the press, Megan is the queen of talking trailer trash and posing like a porn star. And yes we’ve had the unbearable time of watching her try to act on set, and yes, it's very cringe-able. So maybe, being a porn star in the future might be a good career option. But make-up beware, she has a paragraph tattooed to her backside (probably due her rotten childhood) easily another 45 minutes in the chair!

So when the three of us caught wind of Ms Fox, pontificating yet again in some publication (like she actually has something interesting to say) blabbing her trash mouth about a director whom we three have grown to really like. She compared working with Michael, to “working with Hitler”. We actually don’t think she knows who Hitler is by the way. But we wondered how she doesn’t realize what a disgusting, fully uneducated comment this was? Well, here let’s get some facts straight.

Say what you want about Michael – yes at times he can be hard, but he's also fun, and he challenges everyone for a reason – he simply wants people to bring their ‘A’ game. He comes very prepared, knows exactly what he wants, involves the crew and expects everyone to follow through with his or her best, and that includes the actors. He’s one of the hardest working directors out there.

He gets the best from his crews, many of whom have worked with him for 15 years. And yes, he’s loyal, one of the few directors we’ve encountered who lowered his fee by millions to keep Transformers in the United States and California, so he could work with his own crew.

Megan says that Transformers was an unsafe set? Come on Megan, we know it is a bit more strenuous then the playground at the trailer park, but you don’t insult one of the very best stunt and physical effects teams in the business! Not one person got hurt!

And who is the real Megan Fox? She is very different than the academy nominee and winning actors we’ve all worked around. She’s as about ungracious a person as you can ever fathom. She shows little interest in the crew members around her. We work to make her look good in every way, but she's absolutely never appreciative of anyone’s hard work. Never a thank you. All the crewmembers have stopped saying hi to Ms. Princess because she never says hello back. It gets tiring. Many think she just really hates the process of being an actress.

Megan has been late to the sets many times. She goes through the motions that make her exude this sense of misery. We’ve heard the A.D’s piped over the radio that Megan won’t walk from her trailer until John Turturro walks first! John’s done seventy-five movies and she’s made two!

Never expect Megan to attend any of the 15 or so crew parties like all the other actors have. And then there's the classless night she blew off The Royal Prince of Jordan who made a special dinner for all the actors. She doesn’t know that one of the grips daughters wanted to visit their daddy’s work to meet Megan, but he wouldn’t let them come because he told them “she is not nice."

The press certainly doesn’t know her most famous line. On our first day in Egypt, the Egyptian government wouldn’t let us shoot because of a permit problem as the actors got ready in make up at the Four Seasons Hotel. Michael tried to make the best of it; he wanted to take the cast and crew on a private tour of the famous Giza pyramids. God hold us witness, Megan said, "I can’t believe Michael is ****ing forcing us to go to the ****ing pyramids!" I guess this is the “Hitler guy” she is referring to.

So this is the Megan Fox you don’t get to see. Maybe she will learn, but we figure if she can sling insults, then she can take them too. Megan really is a thankless, classless, graceless, and shall we say unfriendly bitch. It's sad how fame can twist people, and even sadder that young girls look up to her. If only they knew who they're really looking up to.

But ‘Fame’ is fleeting. We, being behind the scenes, seen em’ come and go. Hopefully Michael will have Megatron squish her character in the first ten minutes of Transformers 3. We can tell you that will make the crew happy!

I'm, um, speechless.

That's very interesting, thank you for posting. Some of it is probably true and if she is so willing to dish it she should be willing to take it.. If I were in her shoes I'd never diss Micheal Bay given the opportunity he gave her! So she should've seen something like this coming. It won't hurt her much though I presume :p

Her last looks are incredibly chic and beautiful. Thank you for the photos!

I've heard Michael Bay slams from actors before. Apparently he shouts at the actors and it's not a great working environment at all. I found that statement really childish. She said what, a couple of sentences, and for that she gets personally attacted? Michael Bay went out and said she was a nobody and that he "made" her and that he also made Will Smith big with Bad Boys etc, it all might just be cheesy gossip though. I just find it really really juvenile.

I don't think she should burn bridges in the industry when she is so fresh on the scene (or ever, for that matter). It's tacky and cocky.

Even if Michael Bay is a sexist a$shole, keep your comments private.

This is the negative outcome of megan's self-proclaimed "outspokenness". Unfortunately being a loose cannon will piss people off and thats exactly what megan's done.

To her defense she had her reasons to complain about the way michael bay conducts his set but given the choice of actually mentioning it i dont know if i would have said anything.
