Watch: Megan Fox’s Audtion for ‘Transformers’

Happy 30th birthday, Megan Fox! The former Michael Bay movie It-girl is now… well, still a Michael Bay movie It-girl. Over the last few years, Fox has only appeared in the Teenage Mutant Ninjas Turtles movies produced by Michael Bay and Zeroville, an as-yet-unreleased comedy directed by and starring James Franco. She had a falling out with Bay after saying working for him was like working for Hitler and, as a result, did not appear in the third Transformers movie. Obviously she later repaired those bridges with the director who launched her popularity.

This is a clip from Fox’s audition for Transformers, her first major starring role. Although Fox’s good looks are undeniable, she struggles a bit to handle the dialogue in her audition. Of course, considering that none of the Transformers movies are noted for their dialogue, it’s clear Bay was looking for on-screen presence than acting ability to launch his blockbuster franchise.

Check out the clip above!
