Transformers Star Megan Fox on America

From Exurban League, a reason not to go see the new Transformers movie:

When asked how she would stop the ruthless Megatron from demolishing the world, Fox first said that she would “barter with him.” She then, however, went on to say, “… and instead of the entire planet, can you just take out all of the white trash, hillbilly, anti-gay, super bible-beating people in Middle America?”

Classy.  I guess she figured it would go over well with a foreign audience.  For those of us who don’t revel in feeling superior to others, and believing our inferiors ought to die, we’ll just stay home and not go see your crappy movie.

    I thought her comment was tongue-in-cheek?
    The subcontext of the two transformers movies is that existential threats can’t be reasoned with, and every citizen needs to step up and do his part.

    The fact that Michael Bay is directing is enough for me.

    Do his part to kill people who hold different opinions and values? What tolerance.

    Well, I saw Megan Fox pictured on a magazine cover once, and she had that pouty mouth and glazed eyes that made her look like a truly dumb beauty. That truly dumb look actually diminished her beauty.

    I guess she’s living up to the picture.

    I could not care less what she thinks – I was an idiot when I was teenager too. I liked the first movie – it even had Jon Voight playing a Donald Rumsfield character who was a good guy!

    Wow, negotiate with those who intend to exterminate you.
    “Please, put me in the chambers last, sir!”

    >first I would barter with him

    That word does not mean what you think it means. Does she mean bargain? Does she mean parley? Well she is a moron, but still.

    But I can still hate-$#%@ her right?
    I mean, if liberal get to do it an all…

    She is a actress, and a moron, but I repeat myself. If we all stopped seeing movies because we did not like the opinions of the actors/actresses/producers/directors/writers of the movies in question, we would not see a single thing coming out of Hollywood these days.

    She is a particularly despicable moron, granted, but I will still see the movie when it comes out.

    That’s pretty much where I’m at, though not necessarily as a protest… except perhaps against crappy movies.

  11. M Gallo says:

    Meh. She’s still hot enough for me to just tune out whatever she’s saying and suffer through the movie.

    I am with Sebastion. I haven’t seen a major motion picture in theater since “Gods and Generals” in 2003. In the meantime, I have gotten a great deal of productive reading done and saved a ton of money! If you want to see some edifying movies, check out Provident Films’ “Flywheel,” “Facing the Giants,” and “Fireproof.” Not Hollywood “quality” productions, but not typical Hollywood garbage content, either. And there are no prima donnas on the set. You’ll feel better, that’s for sure.
