Chris O'Dowd Calls Michael Bay A "Sexist" & A "Fucking Asshole"; Says He'd Never Work On His Films

Somebody unleashed a beast in Irish comedian Chris O'Dowd. The "Bridesmaids" funnyman, who shares the screen with "Transformers" star Megan Fox in both "Friends With Kids" and the upcoming "This Is Forty", isn't interested in playing politics. When asked about Bay and Fox's spat that led her to exit the multi-billion-dollar franchise, he selected his words in much the same way Bay directs his movies.

Somebody unleashed a beast in Irish comedian Chris O'Dowd. The "Bridesmaids" funnyman, who shares the screen with "Transformers" star Megan Fox in both "Friends With Kids" and the upcoming "This Is Forty," isn't interested in playing politics. When asked about Bay and Fox's spat, which led Fox to exit the multi-billion-dollar franchise, O'Dowd selected his words in much the same way Bay directs his movies.

"I don't know the ins and outs of it but it's all down to having a fallout with Michael Bay," he said in regards to Fox's dismissal." But who wouldn't have a fallout with him? It's one of the sexist things [sic] I've ever seen. She called him an asshole. Well, he is a fucking asshole. She's not the only one who has said that. Why has she been singled out?" O'Dowd no doubt gets around, so by acknowledging that others have called Bay a "fucking asshole," he'll likely be greeted with a series of quiet nods. Or maybe it's just the "Bridesmaids" and "Friends With Kids" boys who are opinionated (Jon Hamm recently weighed in on Kim Kardashian).

Of course, Bay is a mega-huge filmmaker who commands $100 million budgets and massive star-studded casts, and he's got a number of popular friends in high places. But that doesn't faze O'Dowd all that much. "I would never fucking watch his films, never mind go and act in them." Succint, and to the point. Your move, Mr. Bay. [via Toronto Sun]
