Shia LaBeouf Says Megan Fox "Had A Hard Time Accepting" Her Sex Symbol Status In Transformers Franchise

Shia LaBeouf is opening up about why he believes Megan Fox didn't stick around for Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Victoria's Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whitely replaced the brunette beauty in the summer action flick.
In a recent interview with the LA Times, Shia says:
- â€œMegan developed this Spice Girl strength, this woman-empowerment [stuff] that made her feel awkward about her involvement with Michael, who some people think is a very lascivious filmmaker, the way he films women. Mike films women in a way that appeals to a 16-year-old sexuality. Itâ€™s summer. Itâ€™s Michaelâ€™s style.
And I think [Fox] never got comfortable with it. This is a girl who was taken from complete obscurity and placed in a sex-driven role in front of the whole world and told she was the sexiest woman in America. And she had a hard time accepting it."
As for why her relationship with director Michael Bay didn't work, Shia adds:
- "When Mike would ask her to do specific things, there was no time for fluffy talk. Weâ€™re on the run. And the one thing Mike lacks is tact. Thereâ€™s no time for [LaBeouf assumes a gentle voice] â€˜I would like you to just arch your back 70 degrees.â€™â€

When asked about his new co-star Rosie Huntington-Whitely, Shia adds:
- â€œRosie comes with this Victoriaâ€™s Secret background, and sheâ€™s comfortable with it, so she can get down with Mikeâ€™s way of working and it makes the whole set vibe very different."
