Did Megan Fox's 'Spice Girl strength' cost her 'Transformers 3'?

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, who replaced Megan Fox on the set of "Transformers: Dark of the Moon," is bringing with her a whole new vibe, "Transformers" star Shia LaBeouf tells the Los Angeles Times.

"Megan developed this Spice Girl strength, this woman-empowerment [stuff] that made her feel awkward about her involvement with Michael [Bay, the director], who some people think is a very lascivious filmmaker, the way he films women," LaBeouf tells the Times.

"And I think [Fox] never got comfortable with it," he adds. "This is a girl who was taken from complete obscurity and placed in a sex-driven role in front of the whole world and told she was the sexiest woman in America. And she had a hard time accepting it."

Megan Fox joins Jon Hamm in 'Friends with Kids'

Megan Fox doesn't seem to be in a hurry to ditch her on-screen bad girl reputation.

After playing naughty characters in "Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen" and "Jennifer's Body," brunette bombshell Megan Fox has now been cast as the other woman in an upcoming comedy starring "Mad Men" heartthrob Jon Hamm and "Saturday Night Live" cutup Kristen Wiig.

"Friends With Kids" tells the story of a couple (Jennifer Westfeldt and Adam Scott) who realize that children are taking a toll on the relationships of their friends (including Wiig and Hamm), so they decide to have a baby of their own but still date other people, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Fox, 24, will play a woman whom Scott, 37, dates.

Megan Fox a little jealous of 'Transformers' replacement

Megan Fox may have opted to bow out of "Transformers 3," but that doesn't make watching another woman smooch her former co-star, Shia LaBeouf, any easier.

The actress, who was replaced by Victoria's Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whitely, told MTV News she does plan to see the third installment of the "Transformers" franchise but confessed, "I might be a little jealous when I see somebody kissing my Shia, wearing my jeans that I ... already had been fit for. It's kind of weird, actually."

The 24-year-old brunette beauty, currently promoting her upcoming film "Passion Play" at the Toronto Film Festival, was quick to clarify that Whitely most likely won't be wearing her hand-me-downs as LaBeouf's new love interest.

Brian Austin Green: Megan Fox boosted my confidence

Brian Austin Green is a lucky guy and he knows it. The actor is married to one of the hottest women in Hollywood and credits wife Megan Fox with helping the public move past his nerdy "90210" alter ego, David Silver.

"We've been together for six years," Green says of the 24-year-old "Transformers" star in the October issue of Details. "Find a picture of one of us with any other boyfriend or girlfriend - I challenge you. You'll only find pictures of her doing press with Shia LaBeouf or me with my son. That's it. We never once dated anyone else or did anything else."

Still, Green admits that when he first met Fox, he was hardly in the mood for romance. He had just ended his relationship with actress Vanessa Marcil (the couple have an 8-year-old son, Kassius) and "90210" had finished its 10-year run.

Megan Fox donating salary from Eminem music video

Megan Fox made the most of her cameo in Eminem's controversial new video "Love the Way You Lie": The actress donated her appearance fee to a shelter for abused women.

Yahoo! Finance reports that 24-year-old Fox, who stars opposite "Lost" actor Dominic Monaghan as one half of a physically abusive couple, has given her salary to the Sojourn House, which provides battered women and their kids with a place to rebuild their self-esteem and their lives.

In the powerful video, which also features Rihanna, Fox and Monaghan, 33, are shown alternately attacking each other and passionately making out.

Both Eminem, 37, and Rihanna, 22, have had personal experiences with domestic violence, and as Rihanna told Access Hollywood, "The lyrics were so deep, so beautiful and intense. It's something that I understood, something I connected with."

For his part, Eminem felt it was an issue that needed to be addressed. "Trying to make this tough subject work visually is a challenge," he admitted. "It was great to have Rihanna, Megan and Dominic on board for this. They really brought it and made this video super-powerful."

Megan Fox: I'm not trying to be provocative

Sure, she compared her “Transformers” director, Michael Bay, to Hitler. And yes, she’s talked about dating a Russian female stripper, having the libido of a 15-year-old boy and forgetting to flush the toilet. But Megan Fox swears it’s all just a misunderstanding.

"I don't feel like I've ever necessarily said anything that was provocative," the “Jonah Hex” beauty, 24, told MTV News. "I think that people take relatively innocent statements and turn them into provocative things... People have no idea how to react. It's not that the statement itself is outrageous."

Fox, whose latest ads for Emporio Armani underwear will debut in July, added that she believes Lady Gaga has suffered a similar fate.
