LOS ANGELES - Megan Fox doesn’t think there is any ‘’morality or integrity’’ in Hollywood studios anymore and has criticised them for solely focusing on money.
Megan Fox doesn’t think there is any ‘’morality or integrity’’ on set. The ‘Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen’ star claims there are some ‘’very dark’’ things that go on on set and have slammed studios for solely focusing on money rather than people’s feelings.
She shared: ‘’There are some very dark, negative things that go on on-set, between actors or between actors and directors - specifically to actresses - that we have to go through. There’s no morality or integrity within the studio system. It’s completely about greed ... If there was a way to change that, I, of course, would. ‘’It creates a lot of emotional trauma. People have to go over and over again because your humanity isn’t even recognised. You’re an object, a means to an end.
‘’You can’t shut down a movie set - it’s $2 million a day halted - even though insurance covers it. We usually fight through the injuries. As long as your face looks OK, they don’t care and they want you to keep shooting anyway.’’
And the 31-year-old actress - who has Noah, five, Bodhi, three, and Journey, 15 months, with her husband Brian Austin Green - thinks this is the case even more so for big Hollywood films.
She added to Hong Kong’s Prestige magazine: ‘’Equal pay for equal work. There’s also something more that goes on when you’re working on these big movies because the studio has so much money on the line.
‘’When it’s a $100-million-plus budget, the value for human life isn’t anything. It’s all about getting that shot on time so that we make our money back. People get hurt in the process.’’
