  • Fox posted a lengthy statement on social media after footage re-emerged of her talking on Jimmy Kimmel Live in 2009 about an incident from her early career. Fox said that when she was 15 she was filmed by Bay wearing a bikini and dancing under a waterfall as a test for a scene in which Fox appears as an extra in a club scene in the 2003 film Bad Boys II.

    Much criticism has been directed at Bay for his apparent sexualisation of Fox, including her brief appearance in Bad Boys II, led by the original footage poster “liz w” commenting: “Teen girls being preyed on by older men has never been taken seriously and still isn’t.”
