British Victoria Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, who landed the role of the new romantic lead on 'Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon' after Megan Fox's highly-publicized exit, has nothing but praise for the film's director, Michael Bay.
Fox is not reprising her role as Mikaela Banes, a classmate of Shia LaBeouf's human character, Sam, in the film, the third in the franchise. The actress says she walked away from the project, but Bay said in a recent interview that producer Steven Spielberg suggested she get the ax after causing a press firestorm by comparing Bay to Nazi leader Adolf Hitler.

"Transformers: Dark of the Moon," the third movie in the franchise, scored the third-best global debut at the box office this weekend to land in first place, earning an estimated $372 million.
The Paramount flick, which stars Shia LaBeouf and Victoria's Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, took in $162 million domestically in the weekend box office, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The movie had an estimated production budget of $195 million.
Actor Josh Duhamel says that while 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon' has all the big special effects audiences expect, the film has a lot more going for it.
"It is big, but big doesn't always mean better," Duhamel said in a recent interview provided by DreamWorks Pictures. "What I love that he did about this is that they kept the story very linear, very human. It's funny, it's darker than the other two, which I like. A little bit more grown up."
The action flick "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" took the top spot on Friday at the box office and the family-friendly Pixar and Disney film, "Cars 2" held strong in the No. 2 position.
"Transformers: Dark of the Moon," which stars Shia LaBeouf and Victoria's Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, took in $32.9 million on Friday, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The movie had an estimated production budget of $195 million.
Shia LaBeouf criticized "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" in an interview with Details magazine saying that while filming the critically panned but commercially successful film, "We were flying by the seat of our pants, with an unlimited budget." He added, "None of us had any clue what we were doing."
However, the actor says that the latest film in the franchise, "Transformers: Dark of the Moon," is "our best film. It's nice to leave on a high note and be proud of what you did."
Harrison Ford reportedly did not think too highly of Shia LaBeouf criticizing "Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull" during an interview in 2010.
While doing press at the Cannes Film Festival for "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps," LaBeouf told the in Los Angeles Times that the latest "Indiana Jones" film wasn't up to par with the rest of the franchise, claiming he and director Steven Spielberg "dropped the ball" on the project.
Shia LaBeouf is doing big press for the upcoming release of "Transformers: Dark of the Moon," which hits theaters on June 29, and in a new interview he dishes on an affair with Megan Fox, admits to a fling with another "Transformers" co-star, Isabel Lucas, and talks about his bad first date with Hillary Duff.
The 25-year-old actor reportedly gives an affirmative nod when asked by a Details magazine reporter if he and Megan Fox "hooked-up."
One of Shia LaBeouf's biggest fans is apparently Selena Gomez, who appears flustered during an encounter with the "Transformers 3" star, as seen in a recent YouTube video.
The two are currently promoting their latest movies - LaBeouf, 25, reprises his role in "Transformers: Dark of the Moon," the third film in the franchise about robot aliens that was released on Wednesday, June 29, and Gomez, 18, appears in the romantic comedy film "Monte Carlo," which hits theaters on Friday, July 1. Check out Selena Gomez's meeting with Shia LeBeouf below.

The movie, which is directed by Michael Bay, also stars returning actors Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson, Ramón Rodríguez and John Turturro, as well as Peter Cullen, who voices Autobot leader Optimus Prime, and Hugo Weaving, who voices the villain Megatron.
