In the wake of yesterday’s late-breaking news that Michael Bay didn’t want to put up with Megan Fox’s shit anymore, Fox has already responded with the old “you can’t fire me because I quit” rejoinder, telling People magazine via her reps that it was she who opted not to return to Transformers 3. Hopefully the press will finally give Megan Fox some attention so she can share her side of the story soon.
Meanwhile, The Wrap has gathered a list of front-runners to play Shia LaBeouf’s disproportionately attractive female love-cipher, with Prince Of Persia star Gemma Arterton currently being called the frontrunner. One of those unnamed sources “close to the production” that are always giving interviews says that Arterton is already in talks with Bay. Other possible candidates according to The Wrap include Bar Rafaeli, Miranda Kerr, and Brooklyn Decker, while Ain't It Cool says that it hears that pretty much all the girls in Hollywood are being considered, including Emanuelle Chriqui (Entourage), Zoe Saldana (Avatar), Jessica Lowndes (90210), Hayden Panettiere (Heroes), Camilla Belle (10,000 B.C.), Ashley Greene (Twilight), Amber Heard (Pineapple Express), singer/dancer/Proactiv spokesperson Julianne Hough, Vanessa Hudgens (High School Musical), and English model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley—and if none of those ladies fit the bill, well, these guys are working on a failsafe.
UPDATE: We present this desperate cry from Heidi Montag's Twitter feed without comment, except to note that it was very thoughtful of her to go ahead and put it in quotes, so it's just like a press release from a real actor and stuff.
