Chris O’Dowd Is Not on Team Michael Bay

Why would someone ask Chris O'Dowd why his Friends With Kids co-star Megan Fox was fired from the Transformers franchise by Michael Bay? Well, why wouldn't you ask that, if you knew O'Dowd might say this: "I don't know the ins and outs of it but it's all down to having a fallout with Michael Bay. 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?" But is O'Dowd concerned that by putting the powerful director on blast, he'll never be cast as "the funny-talker foreign guy" in one of Bay's movies? "I would never fucking watch his films," says O'Dowd, "never mind go and act in them." Settled!
