Bridesmaids star Chris O'Dowd has launched a foul-mouthed rant against Michael Bay following the director's spat with Hollywood beauty Megan Fox.
The actress famously likened the director to Adolf Hitler in 2009 after working with him on the first two Transformers movies, and was subsequently replaced by Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in the series' third instalment last year (11).
But O'Dowd is appalled by the backlash towards his Friends With Kids co-star.
The Irish funnyman says, "I don't know the ins and outs of it but it's all down to having a fallout with Michael Bay. 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 a**hole. Well, he is a f**king a**hole. She's not the only one who has said that. Why has she been singled out?"
And O'Dowd doesn't care if his remarks mean he will never have a chance to work with the successful filmmaker, adding, "I would never f**king watch his films, never mind go and act in them."
O'Dowd also stars alongside Fox in the forthcoming Knocked Up spin-off comedy This is 40.
