Despite their on-again, off-again routine of media spats, Michael Bay still has a thing for actress Megan Fox. Which means that her Transformers character Mikaela Banes will be surviving on into the next film, Transformers 3.
While he was chillin’ at the Victoria’s Secret Show this week in New York, Bay was wrestled to the ground by USA Today reporter Andrea Mandell and forced to make a comment on Fox, who has been in the news lately due to some oddly acrobatic underwear photos she took for The New York Times (one of which can be seen above). On Fox, Bay said “I love her.” Then followed up with an explanation of her role in the next Transformers film. “She’s got a great part in Transformers 3” he promised. When asked if he would kill her off: “No, no, no. She gets enough of that already”.
When probed about the little scuffle that he and Fox had in the press recently, Bay was magnanimous:
She called me [after the Hitler comment] and goes, ‘It’s all bullshit, Mike.’ The press, they just like to prey, and stalk, and pounce and find a good little juicy thing. But she’s always wanted to do these crazy comments. That’s just her. She’s great.
As you can clearly see, all is well in the world of Michael Bay and Megan Fox. Which unfortunately means that if all this is true, we will not see her death in Transformers 3, something that I know a lot of you were looking toward with much anticipation. We will have a grief counselor on staff all day here at FSR to talk it out with you in the comment section below.
