Michael Bay is a little sick of actors dissing his Transformers films. There was the unforgettable comments made by Megan Fox that likely got her fired after the second movie, and star Shia LaBeouf's more recent, more colorful comments where he likened appearing in the films to having a "finger up his ass" (hey, in his defense, we don't know what he's into). And now, star Hugo Weaving's comments from just a couple of days ago, where he said his role as Megatron was "meaningless," and that he regretted doing it. After all that, you can't blame Bay for being a little hurt, right?
Do you ever get sick of actors that make $15 million a picture, or even $200,000 for voiceover work that took a brisk one hour and 43 minutes to complete, and then complain about their jobs?
With all the problems facing our world today, do these grumbling thespians really think people reading the news actually care about trivial complaints that their job wasn’t “artistic enough” or “fulfilling enough”? [...] What happened to people who had integrity, who did a job, got paid for their hard work, and just smiled afterward? Be happy you even have a job — let alone a job that pays you more than 98% of the people in America.
I have a wonderful idea for all those whiners: They can give their “unhappy job money” to a wonderful Elephant Rescue. It’s the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Africa. I will match the funds they donate.
