Steven Spielberg Had Megan Fox Fired from Transformers, Says Michael Bay

Originally posted 06/20/2011 06:40PM

In the run-up to shooting Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Megan Fox told a British magazine that director Michael Bay "wants to be like Hitler on his sets" and that he's "a nightmare to work for."

A few months later, she got her walking papers. But it wasn't Bay who made the call, the director says.

"She was in a different world, on her BlackBerry. You gotta stay focused," Bay tells the July issue of GQ, on newsstands Tuesday. "And you know, the Hitler thing. Steven said, 'Fire her right now.' "

Megan Fox Struggled as Sex Symbol, Says Shia LaBeouf

Megan Fox famously feuded with Transformers director Michael Bay, once saying, "He wants to be like Hitler on his sets, and he is."

Fox's former costar Shia LaBeouf explains the actress, 25, struggled with the "sex-driven role" and bristled under suddenly being "told she was the sexiest woman in America."

"She had a hard time accepting it," LaBeouf, 24, tells the Los Angeles Times. "Mike films women in a way that appeals to a 16-year-old's sexuality. It's summer. It's Michael's style."

Carey Mulligan and Shia LaBeouf End Their Relationship

Carey Mulligan and Shia LaBeouf End Their Relationship

Originally posted 10/26/2010 08:15AM

Carey Mulligan and Shia LaBeouf have said goodbye to their romance, PEOPLE has confirmed. The Transformers star and the Never Let Me Go actress, who were first linked in August 2009 after being spotted kissing at a New York restaurant, called it quits "some time ago," according to sources.

Since the split, Mulligan has been in Los Angeles shooting the indie film Drive, opposite Ryan Gosling. She checked in to the Best Western Hollywood Hills Hotel for a few days while the film shot nearby.

"I don't know why people are so down on the Best Western," Mulligan joked to PEOPLE at Monday's Hollywood Film Awards in L.A., where she presented her Never Let Me Go costar Andrew Garfield with an award. "They have the best sweet potato fries I've ever had."

Ben Affleck, Natalie Portman, Joaquin Phoenix Fuel Toronto Film Fest Buzz

Hoping to get a glimpse of Ben Affleck, shoot the breeze with James Franco, or catch a canoodle between Shia LaBeouf and Carey Mulligan? Then pack your bags for Toronto, because those are just of the few of the glittery names hitting town for the 35th Toronto International Film Festival.

Speaking of The Town, Affleck's heist drama of that name is one of the festival's most hotly anticipated films, along with Mulligan's mesmerizing Never Let Me Go, about children raised to be spare parts for wealthier, luckier humans. Having seen both, we can already declare them more than worthy (and look for Mulligan's name on Best Actress ballots come Oscar time).

Also generating heavy buzz is Franco in 127 Hours, Slumdog Millionaire director Danny Boyle's film about Aron Ralston, the hiker forced to cut off his own arm after being trapped by a boulder, and Natalie Portman in Black Swan, a dark (some say creepy) film about the ballet world. Word is, we should expect to see Portman giving Mulligan some solid competition come awards season.

Shia LaBeouf isn't usually shy about discussing his personal life. But when it comes to his Oscar-nominated girlfriend, Carey Mulligan, he's uncharacteristically tight-lipped.

"I never really had anything in my life that was off-limits. But with this, just out of respect, I just don't want to [expletive] around," the actor, 23, tells GQ in its April issue.

He will offer this much about his Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps costar, also 23: "She's an unbelievably thought-provoking actress, the most talented actress I've ever met in my life, by leaps and bounds. Neither one of us are fame whores. It works out. It's not like we're the premiere couple; we're not the red-carpet king and queen."
