Watch Megan Fox audition for the supporting role in 'Transformers'
worked as a background extra in the movie 'Bad Boys 2
' directed by Michael Bay
. Fox explained in an interview with Jimmy Kimmel
that while filming, she caught the eye of the critically acclaimed director and he wanted her to audition for his next feature film.
The first time I ever met him, I was 15, and I was an extra on Bad Boys 2. We were shooting this club scene, and they brought me in, and I was wearing a stars and stripes bikini and a red cowboy hat, and six-inch heels. And they took me to Mike and he approved it. And they said, ‘You know, Michael, she’s 15, so you can’t sit her at the bar and she can’t have a drink in her hand.’ So his solution to that problem was to then have me dancing underneath a waterfall getting soaking wet. And that’s… At 15 and I was in tenth grade. So that’s sort of a microcosm of how Bay’s mind works.
His next big movie would later become 'Transformers'. This movie would be Megan Fox's breakout role.
