Michael Bay is the Devil

From this month’s Empire, an anecdote by Michael Bay (aka the Devil) concerning one Scarlett Johansson:

Bay gets a call from his AD, "She needs you."

"I’m like, ‘here we go,’" he continues. "I’m ready to do Ewan and her love scene. I’m like, ‘Oh my God, she’s not gonna come out.’" So, he ventures over to her trailer, and knocks tentatively on the door: "Scarlett?"


"Can I come in?"

Hearing no reply, Bay opens the door and slips inside to be confronted with what appears to be his worst fears. To put it mildly, she’s in a right tizzy, her name has become more of a description than a monicker — all that is missing is a pair of comedy Chuck Jones spurts of steam blasting out of her ears like a pressure cooker going off and the picture is complete.

"I’m not fuckin’ wearing this bra," she yells at him, "this cheap-ass black bra, okay? I’m going naked."

"I’m like, ‘Scarlett you can’t go naked. It’s a PG-13.’"

The Devil, I tell you.
