Megan Fox was fired from the third Transformers film at the request of Steven Spielberg, Michael Bay claims.

The director spoke to The Mail on Sunday and is quoted as saying, "You know the Hitler thing. Steven [Spielberg] said, fire her right now." Bay is referring to a quote from Fox when she likened the helmer to Hitler because of how he allegedly acts on set. Members of The Transformers crew apparently sided with Bay calling the actress as "dumb as a rock" and "as ungracious a person as you can fathom". Fox maintains that she walked from the film. She was replaced by Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.

Fox is slated to appear in Judd Apatow's spin-off to Knocked Up, but other than that doesn't appear to have a big role lined up.
