Megan Fox has told those who criticise the forthcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Michael Bay’s current box-office smash Transformers: Age of Extinction that they should “fuck off”.
The star of Bay’s Ninja Turtles reboot spoke out during a press conference for the film in Los Angeles on Friday.
“Let me tell you something about those people… How much money did Transformers 4 make?” asked Fox. “Exactly. Those people can complain – they all go to the theatre. They’re gonna love it – and if they don’t love it, they can fuck off, and that’s the end of that.”
The comments from Fox, reported by Cinemablend, capped a week of PR disasters for the film’s distributor Paramount. The company was quick to apologise for a marketing gaffe with a poster advertising the film in Australia released online depicting the four vigilantes leaping from an exploding New York skyscraper above the ‘September 11’ release date.
Based on the ’80s TV show, the heroes in a half shell, Raphael, Leonardo, Donatello and Michelangelo, were last seen munching pizza and tackling bad guys on the big screen in 1993.
The Bay-produced reboot Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is directed by Jonathan Liebesman (Wrath Of The Titans) and stars Fox as reporter April O’Neil. The film is set to open in America on August 8 but will not reach UK cinemas until October 17.
