It turns out that in the separation of Megan Fox from Transformers 3, Michael Bay, who ostensibly fired her, was only Charlie Partanna. According to a statement made by Bay to London’s Daily Mail, the whacking of Fox was ordered by none other than Don Corrado Prizzi — i.e., Steven Spielberg, the film’s executive producer.

Fox, who costarred in the first two Transformer pics, had been cast in Transformers 3. But in September 2009, shortly before production began, she gave an interview to Wonderland, a British rag, in which she said Bay was like Hitler on his sets. Bay told a Daily Mail reporter, “You know the Hitler thing? Steven [Spielberg] said, fire her right now.”
