God, I really wish I could go loose on this one. He's like Napoleon and he wants to create this insane, infamous mad-man reputation. He wants to be like Hitler on his sets, and he is. So he's a nightmare to work for but when you get him away from set, and he's not in director mode, I kind of really enjoy his personality because he's so awkward, so hopelessly awkward. He has no social skills at all. And it's endearing to watch him. He's vulnerable and fragile in real life and then on set he's a tyrant. Shia and I almost die when we make a Transformers movie. He has you do some really insane things that insurance would never let you do.
How she keeps escaping mortal injury while working with Bay is anyone's guess -- it seems escaping robots that turn into cars isn't her only skill. Man, I can't begin to fathom what Fox would have said if she really went loose. (And I would love to hear what she would say if she worked with David O. Russell!) I mean, she already compared him to Hitler, so who would she have compared him to if she didn't hold her tongue? Any guesses? What other bad things would she have said if she didn't bite her tongue?
