Megan Fox Says She Had A “Breakdown” After Michael Bay’s ‘Transformers’

Megan Fox reflects on her negative experiences with Michael Bay’s Transformers franchise during a reunion with Jennifer’s Body writer Diabo Cody

In 2007, Megan Fox made her first appearances as Mikaela Banes in Michael Bay’s first Transformers film. While Megan Fox reprised the role in the sequel titled Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, she was fired from the third film after making a statement comparing working under Michael Bay to working with Hitler.

Years ago, Megan Fox opened up about the experience and described her firing from Michael Bay’s Transformers a low point in her career. However, it seems as though Megan Fox has made peace with the past as she recently said she has “come full circle” after the topic of Transformers came up during a conversation with Diablo Cody for Entertainment Tonight.

“I actually don’t mind talking about it anymore. I’ve come full circle with that. I’ve been on a total journey with that and I’ve made it back to a place where nothing that I’ve experienced is a bad thing. It was always something that grew me in the right direction to where I am now.”

However, this was preceded by what Megan Fox described as a “breaking point” that followed her negative experiences on projects including Michael Bay’s Transformers:

“I think I had a genuine psychological breakdown where I wanted just nothing to do. I didn’t want to be seen, I didn’t want to have to take a photo, do a magazine, walk a carpet, I didn’t want to be seen in public at all because the fear, and the belief, and the absolute certainty that I was going to be mocked, or spat at, or someone was going to yell at me, or people would stone me or savage me for just being out… so I went through a very dark moment after that.”

Jennifer’s Body, which celebrates its tenth anniversary this year, was Megan Fox’s first project as the lead following her time on Michael Bay’s Transformers.

Michael Bay directed three additional Transformers films after Megan Fox’s departure from the franchise. A reboot/spin-off of the Transformers film series titled Bumblebee was released last December.

Directed by Travis Knight from a script written by Christina Hodson, the film stars Hailee Steinfeld, Pamela Adlon, John Cena, Stephen Schneider, Jorge Lendeborg Jr., Jason Ian Drucker, Kenneth Choi, Ricardo Hoyos, Abby Quinn, Rachel Crow, and Grace Dzienny.

Bumblebee is now available on 4K Ultra HD Blu-Ray, Blu-Ray, DVD, and Digital HD.
