Shia LeBeouf Is A Douche...And Other Secrets From The Set Of Transformers 3
NOTE: THIS STORY CAME FROM AN ANONYMOUS SOURCE. HIS OR HER IDENTITY HAS BEEN HIDDEN TO COVER HIS OR HER ASS FROM GETTING IN DEEP SHIT. WHAT YOU ARE ABOUT TO READ TO COMPLETELY LEGIT AND NOT FABRICATED. WE WOULDN'T DO THAT TO YOU. WE AREN'T BLEACHER REPORT. ENJOY.
The Transformers 3 crew started to do casting calls months ago. A bunch of my coworkers were chosen.
When Shia LeBeouf first came to the badge station, he refused to have his picture taken (All NASA badges require a picture). Michael Bay had to convince Shia that it was necessary and he acted like a child about it.
Megan Fox's replacement is a Victoria's Secret model who is married to Jason Statham. It was hilarious to watch her walk around set, every time she walked it was like she was on a runway for modeling. Most of the the filming took place in the VAB which is a pretty historic facility that was used to integrate the Saturn V rocket. Shia would do push ups between every take and spit on the ground on the facility.
Some of the cast members were asked to go to the Orlando airport where Bumble Bee was ran into by someone and Michael Bay was PISSED. Bumblebee was already hit while filming in the DC area.
They parked all of the Transformers outside of the VAB (an extremely high traffic) area. Obviously people took tons of pictures and posted them on Facebook and Twitter and Bay flipped out. They sent out a center wide email claiming the entire base is a closed set and no one can take pictures.
My friend was cast as a CIA agent and is almost in every scene with Shia. Shia slammed the door in his face and was really pissed off because he opened the door for him. Shia refused to take a picture with anyone. Josh Duhammel is really cool. Nice to everyone. They partied at all of our bars with us.
Oh yeah, they only chose minorities to be technicians. It was almost comical. They lined us all up and picked mostly minorities. I had to hold back laughter. Rumor is that the Shuttle is an evil transformer and the Crawler is a good transporter. I hope that is false. Oh yeah, Michael Bay is a complete dick.
