Launched to fame via the first Transformers movie, Megan Fox was once one of Hollywood’s most in-demand young actresses. But that all changed when she spoke out about the questionable on-set behavior of its director Michael Bay. Indeed, instead of receiving support from the industry, she was made to feel like a pariah.

However, despite this shift in the culture, Fox has largely kept quiet about the issue.
