Megan Fox feels "victorious" after convincing Transformers bosses her character shouldn't be so "orange" in the latest installment.

The star plays Mikaela Banes in the superhero series, and was thrilled to be asked back for the third movie in the franchise.

She made her name in the role, but now she has become better known Megan felt confident enough to put down some ground rules before accepting.

Chief among them was that Mikaela would not be so tanned.

"Megan hated her look in the last movie," a source explained.

"Her character has more to do this time and is stronger but the thing Megan is most happy about is she's not nearly as orange. It's a big victory for her."

Megan was criticised last year after saying the Transformers movies aren't about acting. She argued they are so action-packed stars aren't required to put much thought into their performances.

"The humans are secondary to the robots because it's a movie about robots. People are well aware that this is not a movie about acting. And once you realise that, it becomes almost fun," she said.

Director Michael Bay called the comments "ridiculous", and said the 23-year-old was too young to understand what she was saying.
