Shia LaBeouf: Megan Fox Uncomfortable With Sex Symbol Status Unlike Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

Shape-shifting robots, a nerdy guy and a bombshell is a movie formula that Megan Fox never got comfortable with - according to her former "Transformers" co-star, Shia LaBeouf.

"Megan developed this Spice Girl strength, this woman-empowerment [stuff] that made her feel awkward about her involvement with Michael [Bay], who some people think is a very lascivious filmmaker, the way he films women," the "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" star told The Los Angeles Times Hero Complex blog.

"Mike films women in a way that appeals to a 16-year-old sexuality. It's summer. It's Michael's style. And I think [Fox] never got comfortable with it. This is a girl who was taken from complete obscurity and placed in a sex-driven role in front of the whole world and told she was the sexiest woman in America. And she had a hard time accepting it," Shia continued. "When Mike would ask her to do specific things, there was no time for fluffy talk. We're on the run. And the one thing Mike lacks is tact. There's no time for, 'I would like you to just arch your back 70 degrees.'"

However, Megan's replacement, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley -- who was recently named #1 on Maxim's annual Hot 100 List -- felt more at ease embracing her blockbuster eye candy status.
