'Not Hot' Laboeuf Almost Missed Transformers Role

Actor SHIA LaBOEUF almost didn't get cast in new blockbuster TRANSFORMERS, because he was deemed "not hot" by women working at director MICHAEL BAY's office. The 21-year-old only managed to land his role when Bay showed his female employees LaBoeuf's audition tape, and they instantly adored him. Bay says, "The girls in the office, they always rate the actors coming in here. They were like, 'Nope, he's not hot.' "I said, 'Just watch the audition tape.' And they saw it and they're like, 'Oh my God, we love him.'"
