Megan Fox sets aside her problems with Michael Bay for the greater good of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Confirming that Michael Bay and Megan Fox are the Werner Herzog and Klaus Kinski of our age, Megan Fox has signed on to star in Michael Bay’s upcoming reboot of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, reigniting the turbulent yet effective collaboration that has produced some of cinema’s most memorable poses. As you may recall hearing about, during a year in which every passing production assistant weighed in on it, Fox and Bay had previously parted ways after Transformers 2, with Fox comparing Bay to “Hitler,” Bay sarcastically apologizing for the Holocaust-like conditions of making her work 12-hour days, and Shia LaBeouf babbling about the Spice Girls and making sure everyone knows he had sex with her.

But all that bad blood seems to have dissipated, as Bay announced with an atypically terse blog post, “We are bringing Megan Fox back into the family!” while Variety elaborates that she’s been cast as jumpsuit-filling reporter April O’Neil—just the sort of role that most pleases Daddy. Those still puzzled by their reconciliation can probably look, as all generations hence must, to the Rosetta Stone that is Fox’s infamous recent interview with Esquire, where Fox agrees that she’s basically an ancient Aztec youth forever doomed to the sacrificial ritual of being pretty in dumb movies, but also expresses her desire to be an archaeologist to “uncover the secrets of the universe,” and avows, “I believe in aliens.” Exploitative working conditions or not, it’s a philosophy she and Michael Bay share.

Whether the new Transformers film manages to save 3-D from itself, it’s already proved a boon for one vital Hollywood industry: the uncomfortably candid celebrity interview. The past few weeks have produced numerous public arguments as to the reasons behind Megan Fox’s firing from the franchise, but as always, anything else is but a warm-up to the inevitable press junket for Shia LaBeouf, whose love of talking openly and glibly about everyone he’s ever worked with has ranged from calling out Steven Spielberg for making a shitty Indiana Jones movie to, most recently, suggesting Fox gets her feminist inspiration from the Spice Girls and that Michael Bay’s directing style is all about creating proper angles of cleavage. As LaBeouf says in this new Details profile, he has “no fear, no respect for authority, and no respect for boundaries”—which he promptly confirms by one-upping his earlier comments about Fox (“She felt like a prostitute”), then giving her a whole lot to talk about when she gets home tonight:

Asked if he hooked up with Fox, LaBeouf nods affirmatively. "Look, you're on the set for six months, with someone who's rooting to be attracted to you, and you're rooting to be attracted to them," he explains. "I never understood the separation of work and life in that situation. But the time I spent with Megan was our own thing, and I think you can see the chemistry onscreen." When I inquire about Fox's status at the time with her longtime boyfriend, Brian Austin Green, LaBeouf replies, "I don't know, man. I don't know. I don't know. I don't know. . . ."—repeating the phrase exactly 12 times with various intonations, as if trying to get it just right. Finally, he says, "It was what it was."

In addition to that boast, LaBeouf also claims that he walked away from potential starring roles in The Social Network and 127 Hours because they weren’t the “Warren Beatty-type game changers” he’s looking for, and announces that he’s done with the action genre (he reportedly also passed on The Bourne Legacy and Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes), planning to only concentrate on the smaller films that interest him, as he’s already accrued “enough money to live 25 lifetimes.” Of course, his former co-star Harrison Ford also calls LaBeouf “a fucking idiot” in the same article, while also implying that he’s a liar who hasn’t yet learned how to promote a film without "making a complete ass" of himself, so take all of this with a grain of salt, everyone and especially Brian Austin Green.

Shia LaBeouf bragged about hooking up with Megan Fox while they filmed the first two Transformers, earning him serious cool points with guys everywhere. One person that doesn't think it's cool? Fox's husband, Brian Austin Green...
