When MTV News talked to Josh Brolin about last year’s [movie id="358297"]“Jonah Hex”[/movie] shoot, he told us about the painful makeup prosthetics, wrapping himself in heavy woolen period clothing and playing the role of a vengeful Western action hero in 100-degree heat.
“It’s the toughest movie I’ve ever done,” he said. “The stunts and the makeup … a lot of pain. … F—ing horrible! I don’t know if I’d do it again.”
Megan Fox, his “Jonah” co-star, might not have such extreme, expletive-filled recollections of the shoot, but she did say that the production was no easy task — even though she spent less than a week on set.
“I only worked on this for five days in Louisiana,” the 24-year-old actress told MTV News. “And we would shoot all day. So we worked really hard for those five days, and then they wrapped me. It was an intense process, to cram all of that into such a short amount of time. It was difficult. It’s not the most difficult thing I’ve done or survived.”
Not by a long shot. Fox and “Transformers” director Michael Bay famously clashed over the course of two blockbuster installments of that franchise, and Fox would later compare the director to Napoleon and Hitler and call him a “nightmare to work for.”
But now that she’s parted ways with “Transformers 3,” Fox has declined to utter a negative word about Bay or his big-screen franchise. Rather, she likes to see herself as a woman without a vengeful bone in her body.
“I try to live with the idea that karma is a very real thing, so I put out what I want to get back,” she said.
