CATEGORIES Movie NewsWhile Chris O'Dowd has made a name for himself playing the comedic sweetheart in both "Bridesmaids" and "Friends with Kids," the Irish comedian is certainly capable of throwing back some hard-hitting obscenities.
O'Dowd tore "Transformers" director Michael Bay a new one when asked of the infamous spat between the director and his FWK's co-star, Megan Fox.
"I don't know the ins and outs of it but it's all down to having a fallout with Michael Bay," O'Dowd told The Toronto Sun. "But who wouldn't have a fallout with him? It's one of the [most] sexist things I've ever seen. She called him an asshole. Well, he is a fucking asshole. She's not the only one who has said that. Why has she been singled out?"
If you might recall, Fox appeared in the first two "Transformers" movies but there was some disagreement and the actress compared the director to Hitler. (That's probably why, Chris.) She was replaced by Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in the most recent installment, and her unseen character was repeatedly used as the butt of jokes.
Jennifer Westfeldt's FWK isn't the last time O'Dowd and Fox share the screen. O'Dowd and Fox will be co-stars in Judd Apatow's upcoming "This Is 40" and it seems he shares her opinions on her once-director.
"I would never fucking watch his films," O'Dowd continue. "Never mind go and act in them."
Then O'Dowd challenged Bay to meet him after school by the flag poll. Fox shows up, wearing O'Dowd's varsity jacket.
