Almost all critics and commentators allege that Megan Fox had all the elements required to make her a mega-star. She had a distinct style of acting. She had a distinguished part in Hollywood life, and has been a spectacular name on two big franchises. Yet, eventually, she became obsolete. What happened? Some people say that her marriage caused great pressure on her career. They alleged that her husband was a stumbling block in the way of her success. She and Brian Austin Green have been together since she was 18; therefore, she became a stepmom to Kassius, Green's son, when she was just a teenager. Moreover, by the age of 30, she became a mother of three boys! This may have caused her professional maturity to lag behind. Others assumed that she was just a rebel who did not feel satisfied with what she was given. She has rebelled even against the person who offered her the only real opportunity to get started in the realm of films. Due to her rebellion, she was dismissed from the Transformers team because she got in a feud with Michael Bay, the director of the movie series, when she compared him to Hitler in one of her interviews. Eventually, most critics and Bay's fans suppose that Megan Fox might not come back to Hollywood for such reasons. In the following article, I will mention 20 reasons why Hollywood does not want Megan to come back anymore.
18 She Ignited A Dispute With An Influential Director
Is it a good reason for Hollywood to dump Fox and not allow her to come back again? Let's see. Michael Bay's first Transformers movie managed to turn her into an on-the-spot star, which could urge famous directors to rush toward casting her in their blockbusters. This could be an adequate reason for her to cling to Bay, as the first person to give her a matchless opportunity to star along top Hollywood stars and celebrities, instead she ignited a dispute with him. This dramatically took place when she gave a negative comment to the Wonderland Magazine in 2009. “He wants to be like Hitler on his sets, and he is. So, he’s a nightmare to work for,” she told the magazine. Such a mistake caused Bay to become angry. Thus, he dumped her out of the Transformers series. Moreover, Stephen Spielberg expressed his anger when he said to Bay, "Fire her right away."
17 Movie Makers And Crews of Several Films Refuse To Work With Her
After the Hitler comment, crew members of several movies tended to blast Fox, alleging that she was too difficult to work with, and called her a grump. For example, crew members on the Revenge of the Fallen accused her of not paying an interest in people working with her, and they jumped to Bay's defense against her. Some of Bay's crew members posted online their response to Megan Fox's insults of him. They stated that he offered her the leading role in Transformers, a franchise that contributed exceptionally to developing her career. With such a franchise, she became one of the most famous celebrities in the world. In fact, she became very famous. They stated also that Megan sadly never smiles. When they were working on Transformers, they tried to make the set a really fun work place. They had very nice tours around the world together. But they have never understood why she was always complaining.
16 She Became Undesirable Due To Her Unsuccessful Film Roles
Getting into successive failures, Megan has become a nightmare for Hollywood directors and filmmakers, particularly for producers. Karyn Kusama's movie, Jennifer's Body, was one of the films that affected Fox's popularity as the movie itself was significantly criticized by many critics. Although some of the critics always state that she isn't totally to blame for the film's failure, its uninspiring reception offered additional proof that she began her fall toward the bottom. Even Jonah Hex didn't help her box office thrive. The film's box office was a real disaster. For Fox, the film's failure was damaging to her big-screen career to the extent that she admitted in 2016: “No one should ever see that movie." To unintentionally assure her failure, Fox took part in the Passion Play which did not help her career. Despite a distinguished cast that included Mickey Rourke, Bill Murray and others, the film proved a failure and was played in a few theaters.
15 People Were Getting Tired Of All The Attention Around Her
Megan Fox became seriously overexposed, both with the unsuccessful film roles and her appearance on every talk show. Magazine and Clickbait photo gallery caused much disturbance to her. Many fans of hers, particularly men, called to ban her from the Internet. When the launch of A Day Without Megan Fox got started, several men’s websites banned Fox for a day. They said they have nothing against the Tennessee-born beauty, but they would ban her from their sites for ONE day: August 4. Then, they raised an astonishing slogan that said, “Yes, Megan Fox is good looking. Yes, Megan Fox is delicious. Yes, Megan Fox farts rainbows. But seriously, enough is enough!”
14 Even Her Fans Got Bored With Her Acting
Even though the one-day-ban attracted so many men, especially many of Megan's real fans, still there were others who took part in defending her. But, in fact, there were just a few people. Megan began receiving frustrating messages on many websites that dedicated much space for commentators and folks to write in. Some of them stated that they wish all websites would ban her face for good. Her way of acting is the same. Others see her in a very bad way. Some stated she has a fantastic body yes, but her face, that has too much make-up, is not that impressive. She is just the typical pretty brunette that all the high school boys drool over, plain and simple.
13 Her Retreat From The Spotlight Was Encouraged
Actually, Megan Fox went on to star in the Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Of course, no one denied that she got worldwide fame which she deserved. However, her short trip of popularity began to fall dramatically. Her character was dropped from all future films. After her notorious Hitler comment, she didn't allow her release from the Transformers franchise to resemble a stumbling block in the way of her success. She went on to appear in some effective television shows and a lot of movies. But the movies in which she played the lead character almost proved a failure. Even one of them received a very bad rating. Critics have said that Fox won't be viewed as a professional or thought of as someone people would love to work with. They all admit that no one wants such a reputation because it can follow them throughout their entire career.
12 Her Overexposure Was Too Boring
Fox's overexposure in the media was so boring and led several of her male fans and folks to boycott her in 2009. However, only some refused to do so. In response to the media saturation and exaggerated attention, Fox told Nylon magazine that the studio wanted to make sure the film she was working on would make $700 million. The studio over saturated the media with their stars but they did not want people to get completely sick of Fox before the film came out. Fox could feel that something was wrong, it was affecting her career badly. She was right! She became much less prominent in the mass media by 2010. In the same year, she said, "My biggest regret is that I've assisted the media in making me into a cartoon character. I don't regret what has happened to me, but I regret the way I have dealt with it." It's obvious that Fox's problem with the spectators' feeling of boredom cannot be cured.
11 Her Husband Stunted Her Career
Megan's marriage to Brian Austin Green hindered her development. She was only 18 when she became a stepmom. By the age of 30, she became the mother to three kids. It was a heavy burden for a young woman! Though on a personal level Green matured and Megan lacked professional maturity. She was fired from her work on Transformers and could not go on acting in the series. It is clear that the decision to get married and become a parent does not offer Megan ample time for her profession. Green wanted her to concentrate on their family life and give up her work. "Megan is young and good looking and sought after for work, and she is eager to move ahead in her career," said an insider. The insider also stated, "Brian wants more of her time than she can allow. She was overwhelmed with the children and her husband's expectations, which got in the way of work responsibilities."
10 She Is Limited To Typecast Roles
Megan alleges that men in Hollywood frequently try to cast her as a good looking vixen. Though Fox tried hard to prove that she has more substance than good looks, she always discussed the difficulties of being typecast as nothing more than a pretty face. She dramatically failed. In fact, she has rarely been given the opportunity to show off her acting talent. Even when she accepted to play different roles in some films, critics and reviewers insisted on exposing her as a good looking woman, that's all. However, she eventually stated that it wouldn't bother her to be good looking, and that it wouldn’t bother her if she were typecast as the good looking girl in comic-book flicks. Thus, what do you think? Do you think that Megan Fox can make it as an actress who is able to play all types of roles, or is she just a pretty face with a nice body?
9 She Does Not Have A Good Opinion About Hollywood
It is obvious that Hollywood has fallen out of love with Megan Fox. Despite the fact that Megan was once tipped as the coming big star in Hollywood, viewers do not see that to come true nowadays. The silver screen has become void of works that include Megan's beautiful face or nice-looking body! In her trial to expose the dark side of Hollywood, she indifferently closed the doors of its movie studios when she accused them of lacking morality and honesty. In an interview with the Hong Kong's Prestige magazine, she said that she had felt injured and she sadly experienced emotional trauma during filmmaking. She stated, "It creates a lot of emotional trauma. People have to go through this junk over and over again because your humanity isn't even recognized. You're an object, a means to an end." She also said she has been injured so many times during work. She also said that women feel undervalued in Hollywood, especially on big movie productions. Do you think Hollywood might embrace her again? They might not.
8 Her Work Causes Family Problems
After Fox's dispute with the director, Michael Bay, her work began to go down toward the edge of the abyss on the aftermath of Bay's dismissing her from the Transformers series. What has made her career like a mount on her shoulders is Green's unsteadiness, after he had a terrible accident, and sporadic employment. Fox became the family breadwinner, so she raised the white flag and fix things with Bay who in turn casted her in a new movie. In August 2015, Fox declared they were planning to get a divorce, and actually they were separated for months. Later, folks knew that the reason for the divorce was Fox's career. Yet, In April 2016 a shocking pregnancy brought them back together! After a few months, Fox called off the divorce as they were waiting for their third baby. A source stated, "During their separation, Brian always hoped Megan would change her mind about the divorce and he is very happy that she did." Of course, such a turbulent life cannot pave the way to Hollywood.
7 She Is Into Weird Conspiracy Theories
While filming the Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen with Shia LaBeouf, she made a tour of the pyramids. She alleged that the trip inspired her with all the real secrets and truth about the pyramids! "Someone high-ranking in that field I will not say who told the actors that the pyramid was never actually a tomb," she mentioned in the Times. "They presume they may have been some type of energy plant at some point," says Fox. Fox went on to say "The sarcophagus that is in the Great Pyramid was put there by the government for tourism. That sparked in me an interest in really exposing this sort of thing because I realized I have access to things I shouldn't have access to because of what I do for a living." In fact, Fox always gave speeches that proved her insanity. For example, on her special cookery skills, she said," I'll starve to death before I'll cook for myself. I think I could survive a week without eating." She also said that she does not prefer to eat with restaurant silverware.
6 She Seems To Be A Stubborn Rebel
How do you think Hollywood folks might deal with a rebel and a stubborn actress, even though she is a beautiful young lady? In most of her speeches, Megan Fox always brags about being a rebel. She also emphasizes her stubbornness. "I was raised in a really religious family that was conservative and did not allow me any sort of freedom to express myself, and I was always very rebellious and fought against that," Fox told Cosmopolitan. She declares that she is stubborn when she said, "As soon as you tell me to do one thing, I do the opposite. As soon as someone tells me not to get any more tattoos, I have this intense fire burning inside me to cover myself with them. I don't care if it's self-destructive. I just have that need to rebel." She is so stubborn that she might do without Hollywood and might get different work. In this respect, she states, "If I ever lose a role because of my tattoos, I'll quit Hollywood and go work at Costco."
5 Her Repeated Pregnancies Were Spontaneous
Megan admitted frankly to Ellen DeGeneres, the talk show host, that the three pregnancies she had happened haphazardly, and neither she nor her husband had planned for any of them. She also admitted that her pregnancies affected her ability to do her job as her fans wished. Reviewers see that Green was partly responsible for his wife's lack of lasting success in her work. This means that he is to blame as he didn't direct her attention toward the necessity of planning each stage of her pregnancy. In 2014, Megan's pregnancy was really very hard on the set of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. In fact, it is an action movie that required a lot of running, jumping, and other stunts. Everyone knows that a pregnant actress is not allowed to do such stunts, especially because she will feel nauseous each time she makes a violent movement.
4 She Is Not Exactly The Next Meryl Streep
As a matter of fact, she seems like she could be a very beautiful masterpiece. However, being thin and beautiful should not be the reason she is a good actress. Many viewers confess that she's such a bad actress that when you see one of her movies, you should put your fingers in your ears, and close your eyes for three hours or so. Which is definitely harsh. Moreover, she admitted that she couldn't really act that well. So, why is she still being arrogant? She was only in the Transformers movies to pose as a beauty symbol and for no other reason. She always takes the same roles that show her off as a witch! A commentator once said, "She shouldn't be acting at all, it hurts my eyes to see her trying."
3 Bad Circumstances Affect Her Performance
Everyone remembers well when Megan Fox compared Michael Bay to Hitler. Unexpectedly, her comment was shown off in the headlines, and she found herself fired from the series. It is said that Steven Spielberg suggested to Bay that he fire her and he immediately carried out the command. Bay soon decided to do without Megan and cast Victoria Secret's model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley who was one year younger than Megan and who was very happy to take a leading part. After this unfortunate event in Megan's life, she felt that her career would never recover. She tried hard to lead her artistic life without Bay's help, yet, instead, she has been cast in one bad movie after another. She cannot get a truly successful franchise that might give her another opportunity to prove her ability to act.
2 Jonah Hex Was Named Worst Picture Of The Year
Unfortunately, Megan wasted too much time and exhausted too much effort in participating in movies that proved they were all a mere failure. In fact, after the failure of Jennifer's Body, she went on to star in another film that failed. In 2009, she began shooting Jonah Hex in which she played a Victorian-era street girl. Critics and commentators emphasized that Jonah Hex was declared a total failure even though it had all the required factors and elements of a successful film. Such elements included appropriate, expensive costumes, good quality production, and very good actors. But the terrible performances, especially Megan's, destined the film to be named the worst picture of the year by Houston Film Critics Society. Many sources admit that even Megan herself hated the movie and said that she won't let her kids see it. She said, “The movie Jonah Hex, I'm not going to let my kids see it ever; no one should ever see that movie."
1 Megan Has No True Desire To Work For Hollywood Again
In an interview, Megan got real about the Hollywood industry which she calls morally bankrupt. She explained: "You are a commodity; you are something the studio owns." Fox added more by saying, "As long as you survive filming and they've gotten what they need from you they don't really care if you drop dead afterward. It doesn't matter if you break an arm or if you break a leg." It was obvious that Megan didn't prefer working for Hollywood directors, but she felt obliged to do so just to make a living. In addition, critics state that she's a grump onset and is constantly late to filming. The Transformers crew members also said that it didn't even look as if Fox wanted to be in the film anyway, even if she said she did. Moreover, she admitted that she was in this career just for the money, “I have to make one movie a year because I have to invest in my kid's future and I have to be able to pay their way through college and be able to provide for them.”
