SHIA LABEOUF says MEGAN FOX was not ready to become a sex symbol back when she first became famous as the sexy bombshell from the first ‘Transformers’ film. Really? But she seemed to love the attention!

Shia, who worked with Megan for the first two ‘Transformers’ movies, says of his sexpot co-star:

Megan developed this Spice Girl strength, this woman-empowerment [stuff] that made her feel awkward about her involvement with [director] Michael Bay, who some people think is a very lascivious filmmaker, the way he films women.”

He adds:

Mike films women in a way that appeals to a 16-year-old sexuality. It’s summer. It’s Michael‘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.”

Due to the rampant Hollywood rumors of conflicts with ‘Transformers’ director Michael Bay, Megan was replaced in the third installment of the film franchise by model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.

Shia also shares:

Rosie comes with this Victoria’s Secret background, and she’s comfortable with it, so she can get down with Mike‘s way of working and it makes the whole set vibe very different.”

With two such sexy, radiant co-stars, we wonder whom he liked working with more? Hmm.
