(Newser) – A key insider has finally confirmed what many suspected: Megan Fox got bounced from the Transformers series that made her famous because she compared her director to Adolf Hitler. The order to fire her came directly from producer Steven Spielberg, reports the Telegraph. The 25-year-old actress claimed last year that she was quitting—before production of the about-to-be-released Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon—in order to pursue other "acting" opportunities. But in fact she was drop-kicked by her bosses immediately after a tirade against director Michael Bay, in which she said he wants to be "like Hitler on his sets."

Now Bay himself has told the Daily Mail: "You know the Hitler thing. Steven said fire her right now." Fox was immediately slammed after her comments against Bay in a blog by other crew members, who blasted her "porn star" acting and called her "dumb as a rock." Co-star Shia LaBeouf said in an interview that Fox "started s--t-talking our captain, which you can't do." Fox was replaced by British model Rosie ­Huntington-Whitley. Click here for more.
