HOLLYWOOD, CA – The Transformers franchise will be missing a very important piece in its next installment!
As the saying goes, “the show must go on,” and that’s the case with Transformers 3. The project will go on about its business, but Megan Fox will be no where to be found. The 24-year-old beauty and the blockbuster franchise have decided to part ways. Rumors have been flying as to what caused the breakup and who will replace Fox in the next film.
It seems as though the winning rumor has it that Fox won’t be returning to the franchise because director Michael Bay told her she must put on some weight as she looked too skinny. That caused some tension between the pair and Bay finds himself looking for a new love interest for lead actor Shia LaBeouf.
A source on set told UK newspaper The Sun: “Megan stormed out after a huge row with Michael Bay. He thinks she has lost too much weight and looks too frail.”
“He wanted her to put on some weight and it all kicked off,” the source said. “The crew don’t think she looks well, let alone the wholesome, curvy star they cast in the first film.”
As for a replacement, reality TV star Heidi Montag has thrown her name into the hat. The plastic surgery addict thinks that she would be a good fit for the franchise and has taken to Twitter to express her feelings.
“Michael Bay I love your work! I know what a artistic brilliant genius you are! Cast me in the next Transformers,” she tweeted.
Montag’s acting resume isn’t exactly extensive, or impressive for that matter. She’s also been quoted as saying that she wants to star in a 3-D superhero movie where her boobs save the day. But, if Bay needs to generate some buzz for the upcoming film, Montag would definitely bring him some publicity – whether it’s good publicity is another story.
Transformers’ fans will certainly have one less reason to go see the next film. A sad occurrence, but “the show must go on.”
