Rosie Huntington-Whiteley Replaces Megan Fox in 'Transformers 3'

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

Victoria's Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has been cast as Megan Fox's replacement in Michael Bay's Transformers 3. She has no acting experience – not that much emoting will be required from her. The robots will provide all the necessary acting in the action/sci-fi flick.

Megan Fox and Bay had an ugly public rift following Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. A few weeks ago, Paramount announced it wasn't renewing Fox's contract. The actress then retorted that she was the one who decided to quit the series because she was no longer willing to work with Bay. Fox will next be seen opposite Josh Brolin in Jonah Hex.

Huntington-Whiteley, who had previously worked with Bay on the Victoria's Secret ad “A Thousand Fantasies,” will play Shia LaBeouf's romantic interest in this third installment of the Transformers franchise, reviled by critics, worshiped by a certain (large) segment of the filmgoing public.

Others in the Transformers 3 cast are Josh Duhamel, Ken Jeong, Patrick Dempsey, Alan Tudyk, John Turturro, Peter Cullen, Kevin Dunn, Tyrese Gibson, Julie White, and Oscar winner Frances McDormand and Oscar nominee John Malkovich, who I believe are supposed to lend a patina of respectability to the braindead proceedings. Transformers 3, which is currently in production in the Los Angeles area, should come out July 1, 2011.

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.

    Fox got what she deserved. Being one of the main actors doesn't mean you can behave like a bitch. And then afterwards saying “no no, *I* wanted to leave anyway” is just childish. This is not the first time Fox behave and say such things. And she is not a good actor too.

  2. If Megan Fox was in Rosie's league, she would have been offered a modeling contract like Rosie a long time ago.

    Haha! Okay sure replace Megan Fox. But Michael Bay better be prepared to to lose 3/4th's of his guyy audience who saw the momovie JUST because of Megan Fox being in it… lol I like the movie tho and this girl kinda can pass for a Mikayla

    further proves that acting ability is not a requirement for Micheal Bay films. Not that I was ever confused that they did previously.

    WTF, Megan fox was a hottie. This girl is hot, but not in Megan's league. Good luck with that role.
