"Michael Bay's the fastest, most intense director I've ever worked with. The explosions are right here. They're not CGI. You know, the other day they had me on top of one of these buildings one-handed with wire, a wire here and a wire there and a cube here. It was insane, but that's stuff that you usually shoot CGI and Michael doesn't do CGI. He likes seeing the immediate, he likes being able to go into his trailer and go, 'You're never gonna believe what I just shot.' Rather than have to wait for the CGI to be put into greenscreen. He likes to see immediately, so things like explosions, I mean, it's all very real".
- Shia LaBeouf

"You know, you sit and you think, 'This isn't realistic and people are going to hate this and I feel like a f--king douchebag and I can't do it. But then you think nobody's even going to give a s--t. There's going to be so much happening around this that they have to tie you into the story somehow, because there are a lot of people who would just watch a movie that was nothing but robots fighting. Sure, but the majority of people… I heard Shia say they want to see some sort of human interaction, human involvement, so those things have to, I think unfortunately they have to be thrown in there. And we're trying to steer away from -- we know the fans and they don't want any sappy bulls--t. We're trying to stay away from that and keep it as realistic as possible and as much about the Autobots and Decepticons as we can".
- Megan Fox

Wow, Megan Fox sounds like a true fan there. She just earned some bonus points with me.

Well, I have more respect for Megan now, she sounds like she knows what we want! But besides from that, I don't feel that this interview had anything more insightfull about the movie.

By the way this was in the interview:

"The actress-- who says her favorite Transformer characters are Starscream from the animated series and Bumblebee from the movie."

Now, I can understand Bumbleebee.....BUT STARSCREAM! Now me, I am more handsome than Screamer, I don't have an ego, I don't have delusions of grandier (or however it's spelled), and I am smarter. So why does every girl like Starscream, WHY, OH WHY!?!! :sad:

Girls love rebels, especially big vociferous ones.

I think I know what Megan Fox was trying to say, but it was a bit hard to understand her with all the edits and such.
