But at least David O. Russell makes good movies

Megan Fox walked away from "Transformers 3" because director Michael Bay was "verbally abusive" toward her and "she had enough and decided to get out early," an individual close to the actress has told TheWrap.

Bay ... has a history of demeaning his leading ladies, including "Pearl Harbor" star Kate Beckinsale; an individual close to the actress recalled that the director "wasn't very nice" to her on the set, either.

Apparently, Fox wasn't the only "Transformers" cast member affected by Bay's rude behavior. TheWrap also learned that "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" star Isabel Lucas chose not to join her co-stars on a publicity tour for the film because she didn't get along with the director, who was described as being "too powerful" and "not well-liked" by the female talent community.

It's no secret that Bay has a reputation for being an extremely controlling filmmaker who can be difficult to work with at times -- but directors aren't required to be "nice." Just ask George Clooney and Lily Tomlin, the respective stars of David O. Russell's "Three Kings" and "I Heart Huckabees."
