A few years ago Megan Fox compared director Michael Bay to Hitler and called him a “nightmare to work for,” after he gave her a big acting break in the Transformers. Michael Bay also famously made Megan audition for that movie by washing his car in a bikini. Then Megan had a baby and said she didn’t want to show off her body anymore, and everyone thought that was the end of her acting career. Aaannndd it didn’t take long for those highfalutin notions of modesty to get scraped.
Bay announced on his website last night that Megan has joined the cast of his upcoming art-house film Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles where Megan will take on the challenging and emotionally tolling role of April O’Neil, the human friend of the sewer-dwelling reptiles. Because a film of this caliber is usually about the cinematography and the direction, I’m sure Megan won’t be showing much skin.
Sources say Fox and Bay reconciled over a series of recent meetings and that one tete-a-tete that won her over was with director Jonathan Liebesman, who wowed her with the storyboards, according to insiders.
I love the idea that Megan Fox was ‘wowed’ by a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles storyboard. This bitch believes in goblins and leprechauns, so I don’t think they’re exaggerating, she probably really was blown away when she saw it. She probably thinks there are actual mutated turtles highly trained in the martial arts by a rat sensei living in the sewers of New York, and that’s why it will be the city God smites first when the rapture comes.
