TRANSFORMERS 3: Megan Fox to Be Replaced by Rosie Huntington-Whiteley?

Megan Fox, who apparently will be replaced by British model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley as Shia LaBeouf’s love interest in Transformers 3, had a falling out with Michael Bay because she looked too "pale" and "underweight" for the director, Jeff Sneider reports in TheWrap.

Stories about Fox’s skin color and weight being a contentious issue had already been circulating online. And as it has been reported before, Fox and others associated with the Transformers 3 production assert that she was the one who walked off the set after Bay expressed his unhappiness with her looks. And that’s when Paramount decided not to renew Fox’s contract.

According to Sneider, "while it’s technically true that Paramount declined to pick up Fox’s option, it was because the actress had already decided to walk away." Sneider adds that Fox’s character, Mikaela Banes, was "reportedly" found in Ehren Kruger’s screenplay as recently as May 17, when production began on Transformers 3.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, 23, has no acting experience. Not that much will be needed.
