Megan Fox developed a skin allergy during a promotional visit to Beijing for the Chinese launch of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which prevented her from attending the film’s premiere, although her people insisted her allergy was not caused by terrible pollution in Beijing.

Fox joined fellow castmember William Fichtner, producers Brad Fuller and Andrew Form and Paramount vice chairman Rob Moore at a press conference in the Shangri-La hotel in Beijing early on Sunday.

At the news conference, she spoke of how when she opened the windows of her hotel, she was able to see how beautiful Beijing was.

She then didn’t show up for the premiere later, and Chinese media and the Internet were abuzz with rumors she had developed a skin allergy from the pollution and had to cancel. Chinese actress Fan Bingbing attended the premiere instead. Fox had arrived in Beijing on Saturday, one of the most heavily polluted days of the year, when the Chinese capital was shrouded in vile smog.

“She had an allergic reaction but not because of the pollution,” a spokeswoman for the actress told The Hollywood Reporter.

In Beijing, people read their pollution index app the way other people check their watches or temperature gauges.

On Saturday, the CN Air Quality Index app that gives a reading for pollution was more than 500, or “beyond index,” in its reading for the most dangerous PM 2.5 particles. The concentration was more than 20 times higher than the 25 recommended for 24-hour exposure by the World Health Organization.

By Sunday, the pollution had cleared up, though. Fox’s schedule for Monday was reportedly canceled, although later sources said she was due to visit the Great Wall of China during the day. The pollution reading on Monday was 95, which is a “good” rating.

“In just one day, the goddess was brought down by the pollution,” wrote one commentator on Sohu. China is the world’s biggest carbon emitter and is heavily reliant on coal as a power source, getting 65 percent of its energy that way.

Another online commentator wrote that even aliens would not invade during this kind of pollution.

“Poor her. We Chinese have been living in pollution long enough to not be affected by it,” they wrote on Sina.

Pollution is also causing headaches for international firms seeking to locate and retain staffers in Beijing. In a survey by the European Union Chamber of Commerce this year, 68 percent of firms said they had experienced problems attracting talent and 64 percent retaining talent.

Megan Fox is set as the female lead in Zeroville, James Franco’s adaptation of the acclaimed Steve Erickson novel set against the backdrop of late 1960s Hollywood.

Franco is directing the movie as well as starring as a film-obsessed man who arrives in Hollywood in 1969, as the studios are in decline and independents are rising. As the world around him transforms culturally with sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll, he gets his dream job of being a film editor, only to encounter a host of characters ranging from former starlets, burglars and political guerrillas to punk musicians and veteran filmmakers.

Vince Jolivette of Rabbit Bandini along with Caroline Aragon and Michael Mendelsohn are producing, as is Franco. The title will be selling at November’s AFM.

Fox will play a Hollywood starlet with a very troubled past who becomes the love interest and obsession to Franco’s character.

Also in the movie are frequent Franco cohorts Seth Rogen, Danny McBride and Craig Robinson as well as Will Ferrell, Jacki Weaver and Horatio Sanz.

The movie is shooting in Los Angeles and Franco hinted at Fox’s casting earlier this week when he posted an image on his Instagram account.

Fox was the human face and star of Paramount’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which debuted at $65.5 million domestic on opening weekend. The movie was the fourth-highest August opening ever and has grossed $375 million worldwide. And being an entertainer with one of the largest Facebook followings (over 52 million), you can bet she’ll be in the sequel.

Her other recent film credits include the comedies This Is 40, from Judd Apatow, and Friends With Kids, in which she starred opposite Jon Hamm and Kristen Wiig.

Fox is represented by ICM Partners and Jackoway Tyerman.
