Megan Fox upset as topless pictures leak from set

Star dumped from 'Transformers 3'

Transformers star Megan Fox has reacted furiously to naked pictures of her taken on a cameraphone being leaked onto the internet.

Speaking to Allure magazine, she promised to inflict “physical harm” on the person responsible for taking a picture of her on the set of her new film Passion Play, where she appears naked in a glass box as a circus sideshow performer.

She said: “If I knew who took this picture, I would personally cause them harm – physical harm… I’m not a fucking reality TV star that’s courting the paparazzi and wants my fucking picture taken all the time.”

She added: “I’m at my job and I’m trying to play a character and I’m trying to be serious, and this is the shit that’s happening to me. It makes me furious.”

Meanwhile, following the announcement of her departure, Fox has insisted that it was her decision to leave the Transformers franchise.

It led to speculation that the 24-year-old had been dumped by director Michael Bay, after she compared him to Hitler, and complained that the action films were “not about acting”.

Yet a representative of Fox has said: “Megan Fox will not be starring in Transformers 3. It was her decision not to return. She wishes the franchise the best.”

Crew members on Transformers 2 took the unusual step last year of publishing a letter online criticising the actress, branding her “dumb-as-a-rock”, “sour”, a “thankless, classless, graceless, unfriendly bitch”, and wishing that a Megatron would “squish her character in the first ten minutes of Transformers 3“.
