Megan Fox slammed Transformers director Michael Bay for focusing more on special effects than acting, but he doesn't mind. "Well, that's Megan Fox for you," Bay tell the Wall Street Journal.
"She says some very ridiculous things because she's 23 years old and she still has a lot of growing to do.

"You roll your eyes when you see statements like that and think, 'Okay Megan, you can do whatever you want. I got it,'" he goes on.
Fox told Entertainment Weekly: "I mean, I can't s— on this movie because it did give me a career and open all these doors for me. But I don't want to blow smoke up people's a–. People are well aware that this is not a movie about acting."
Bay says he "100 percent disagrees" with Fox.
"Nick Cage wasn't a big actor when I cast him, nor was Ben Affleck before I put him in Armageddon. Shia LaBeouf wasn't a big movie star before he did Transformers — and then he exploded. Not to mention Will Smith and Martin Lawrence, from Bad Boys," he points out.

Bay thinks Fox could be a little more grateful, though. "Nobody in the world knew about Megan Fox until I found her and put her in Transformers," he says. "I like to think that I've had some luck in building actors' careers with my films."
