In case you needed further proof that Michael Bay is one of the worst humans alive, here it is: he doesn’t think Kate Beckinsale is beautiful. What?!
Kate Beckinsale, 42, is not afraid to put Michael Bay, 51, in his place. The actress spoke out during a new interview on The Graham Norton Show on May 27 about working with the Transformers director on the set of Pearl Harbor, and she shared that he would make comments about her body and weight. Read on to hear the awful things Michael has said about the stunning actress!
Kate opened up on The Graham Norton Show, revealing that Michael Bay would make comments about her body while on the set of their movie Pearl Harbor. “I think he was baffled by me because my boobs weren’t bigger than my head and I wasn’t blond,” she said. “I’d just had my daughter and had lost weight…but I was told that if I got the part, I’d have to work out, and I just didn’t understand why a 1940s nurse would do that.” How disgusting is that??
Michael’s despicable behavior didn’t stop there. “When we were promoting the film, Michael was asked why he had chosen Ben and Josh, and he said, ‘I have worked with Ben before and I love him, and Josh is so manly and a wonderful actor,'” Kate continued. “Then when he was asked about me, he’d say, ‘Kate wasn’t so attractive that she would alienate the female audience’…he kept saying it everywhere we went, and we went to a lot of places.”
As for Michael’s defense? “I didn’t want someone who was too beautiful. Women feel disturbed when they see someone’s too pretty,” he told Movieline. “I’m not saying Kate’s not pretty…[she] is very funny, could hang with the guys. She’s not so neurotic about everything, like some actresses.” Ugh.
HollywoodLifers, are you proud of Kate for speaking out on what Michael said about her?
