Has the truth finally come out?

While Megan Fox claims she left the Transformers franchise on her own, director Michael Bay tells the latest issue of GQ that it was her comparison of him to Hitler that led to her ousting – and that it was producer Steven Spielberg’s decision to let her go.

“She was in a different world, on her BlackBerry,” Bay says of the star. “You gotta stay focused. And you know, the Hitler thing. Steven said, ‘Fire her right now.'”

Note to Megan Fox: You can compare us to murderous dictators all day long!

Bay says he’s not mad at Fox (“When you’re days and months on a set, it’s like a family. You say rude things and you make up.”), but he also sarcastically apologizes to her:

“I’m sorry, Megan. I’m sorry I made you work twelve hours. I’m sorry that I’m making you show up on time. Movies are not always warm and fuzzy.”

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has come on board the franchise and, based on the horrific trailer and previews for Dark of the Moon, let’s say this: Fox’s comments may have been the best career move she could have made.
