Model Emily Ratajkowski has called out Judd Apatow for objectifying Megan Fox in "This is 40." 

Speaking with Amy Schumer at the 2021 Tribeca Festival on Saturday about the film, Ratajkowski admitted she took issue with the portrayal of the "Transformers" actress. 

"So that movie is hilarious and very spot-on," Ratajkowski said, according to Page Six. "I recommend everybody who has a husband or wife and kids to watch it, [but] Megan Fox is treated in it so badly."

Ratajkowski added that the movie "is not aging well." 

After a few minutes, she then asked Schumer who made the film.

"It’s Judd Apatow," she laughed. "I don’t care, I’m ready to burn that bridge to the ground tonight."

Fox has not directly spoken about the way her character was depicted in "This is 40," but has previously opened up about being objectified in Hollywood. Last year, she admitted during an interview with Entertainment Tonight, that she felt as if she was being hypersexualized and it was impacting her mental health. The conversation came about while discussing her 2009 film "Jennifer's Body."

"It wasn't just that movie, it was everyday of my life, all the time, with every project I worked on and every producer I worked with. It preceded a breaking point for me," Fox said.

"I think I had a genuine psychological breakdown where I wanted just nothing to do," she continued. "I didn't want to be seen, I didn't want to have to take a photo, do a magazine, walk a carpet, I didn't want to be seen in public at all because the fear, and the belief, and the absolute certainty that I was going to be mocked, or spat at, or someone was going to yell at me, or people would stone me or savage me for just being out … so I went through a very dark moment after that."

The actress added that, after attempting to speak out about it, she was met with a far different reaction to the one that other actresses received when sharing similar stories.

"I feel like I was sort of out and in front of the #MeToo movement before the #MeToo movement happened, I was speaking out and saying, 'Hey, these things are happening to me and they're not OK,'" she explained. "And everyone was like, 'Oh well, f**k you. We don't care, you deserve it.' Because everybody talked about how you looked or how you dressed or the jokes you made."
