Megan Fox: I Decided to Leave 'Transformers'
Though reports say Megan Fox was dropped from the "Transformers" franchise, she's now saying she dropped outta the movie by choice.
A rep for the actress tells PEOPLE
, “Megan Fox will not be starring in Transformers 3
. It was her decision not to return. She wishes the franchise the best.”
Nikki Finke reported it was "ultimately" director Michael Bay's call to give Fox the ax -- and a new love interest will be cast for Shia LaBeouf in the new flick.
