Chris O'Dowd slams "asshole" Michael Bay for Megan Fox Transformers axe

By
Chris O'Dowd has hit out at Michael Bay for firing his Friends with Kids co-star Megan Fox from the Transformers series.

Fox entered into a public feud with Bay following comments made in a 2009 interview with Wonderland Magazine, in which she claimed Bay behaved like "a tyrant" on set and compared him to Adolf Hitler.

He said: "I don't know the ins and outs of it but it's all down to having a fallout with Michael Bay. But who wouldn't have a fallout with him?

"It's one of the sexist things I've ever seen. She called him an asshole. Well, he is a f**king asshole. She's not the only one who has said that. Why has she been singled out?"

O'Dowd admitted that he is not a fan of Bay's film work, adding: "I would never f**king watch his films, never mind go and act in them."
