Chris O’Dowd Defends Costar Megan Fox Against “Sexist” Michael Bay


Michael Bay never seemed like the kind of guy we’d want to hang out with, mostly because we don’t want have to hear about the greatness that is Armageddon. We get it! It’s in the Criterion Collection! Let’s all just move on! Friends With Kids actor Chris O’Dowd, however, can’t stand the Transformers director because of the way Bay treated his former leading lady Megan Fox. “I don’t know the ins and outs of it but it’s all down to having a fallout with Michael Bay,” the Bridesmaids star ranted to The Toronto Sun. “But who wouldn’t have a fallout with him? It’s one of the [most] sexist things I’ve ever seen. She called him an a–hole. Well, he is a fucking a–hole. She’s not the only one who has said that. Why has she been singled out?” Yeah! We don’t like Michael Bay, and he never even made us straddle a motorcycle with our butts facing the camera!

As you might recall, Bay gave Fox the boot from the blockbuster film series after she compared him to Hitler following some particularly harsh on-set treatment; the director then proceeded to trash her in the news, with Shia LaBeouf providing gross, unnecessary backup. As for ruining his chances of starring in Transformers 6: Robot Punches 4 Eva, O’Dowd could care less. “I would never f—ing watch his films,” he snarled. “Never mind go and act in them.” Meanwhile, we wouldn’t be surprised if there was one solitary tear sliding down Michael Bay’s face right now. Sure he’s going to wipe it away with a $50,000 bill, but the point is it was there.
