Michael Bay

A lot of directors don't want the pressure of a movie the size of Pearl Harbor. But I love it. I thrive on it.More Michael Bay [10/12/2011 05:10:27]
And a lot of the artists and people that we hired were fans of Transformers growing up, so having so many fans working on my crew really kept me on point.More Michael Bay [10/12/2011 05:10:35]
Directing is not a job. It's more like a career. Which is great!More Michael Bay [10/12/2011 05:10:42]
Everybody knows about Pearl Harbor. The thing that really fascinated me is that through this tragedy there was this amazing American heroism.More Michael Bay [10/12/2011 05:10:57]
Fast cars are my only vice.More Michael Bay [10/12/2011 05:10:05]
I allow a lot of room for improvisation and funny stuff. I always feel planned.More Michael Bay [10/12/2011 05:10:23]
I can be very reserved about things. My business side isn't shy. I can be like a general. But I've got a shy side. I'm also a lot deeper than people think, and a lot more sensitive. But I don't let people in too much.'More Michael Bay [10/12/2011 05:10:30]
I go out there to win. People don't care if you die in this business. The only way I get back is with success.More Michael Bay [10/12/2011 05:10:38]
I look at directing as a sporting event. It's a race, a marathon. It's great when it clicks, which is why I push my crews so hard so we can excel.More Michael Bay [10/12/2011 05:10:51]
I love doing big movies. It's awesome! You have all these toys. The thing I like about this movie is, like they always say, directors have the biggest train sets! Don't tell anyone, but I'd do this for free.More Michael Bay [10/12/2011 05:10:58]
I make movies for teenage boys. Oh dear, what a crime.More Michael Bay [10/12/2011 05:10:06]
I make movies that audiences like, that I'd want to see. That's all.More Michael Bay [10/12/2011 05:10:14]
I'm at that point in my life where I definitely want to get married soon. I've got my dogs as surrogates, but I'm ready for kids.More Michael Bay [10/12/2011 05:10:23]
I'm done with effects movies for now. When you do a movie like 'Transformers,' it can feel like you're doing three movies at once - which is tiring.More Michael Bay [10/12/2011 05:10:31]
It is really cool to have created a movie that has turned out to become the biggest movie of the year.More Michael Bay [10/12/2011 05:10:47]
It's great that I get accused of not being politically correct. People need to take themselves less seriously. This world is so screwed up as it is, we've all got to relax a bit more.More Michael Bay [10/12/2011 05:10:55]
It's... a hard thing for a director, to think you came up with a shot, something from your mind, and someone died while doing it. It's the worst thing you'll ever have to live with. It was very hard for me to get back on the horse again.More Michael Bay [10/12/2011 05:10:03]
Maybe I have just a younger voice than many other directors.More Michael Bay [10/12/2011 05:10:22]
Nobody in the world knew about Megan Fox until I found her and put her in 'Transformers.' I like to think that I've had some luck in building actors' careers with my films.More Michael Bay [10/12/2011 05:10:30]
The press don't like to say nice things because nice is boring. It's much better to label me the devil. What we do is not brain surgery. We are entertainers, plain and simple, and we're responsible to bring that money back, to make a profit.More Michael Bay [10/12/2011 05:10:38]
There are many movies that have done it very badly. The studios have gone for quick profits and audiences are feeling angry. People aren't taking the time and spending the money to do it right. I am.More Michael Bay [10/12/2011 05:10:46]
There are things that I invented - the creaky geriatric robot that is always grumpy, for example, or the little wheelie guy, he's not in the Hasbro lore. But kids love that stuff - this little guy as a pet on a chain. They gravitate towards it.More Michael Bay [10/12/2011 05:10:54]
We don't make movies for critics. I've done four movies; there's millions upon millions upon millions of people who've paid to see them. Somebody likes them. My greatest joy is to sit anonymously in a dark theater and watch it with an audience, a paying audience.More Michael Bay [10/12/2011 05:10:07]
What I look for in a script is something that challenges me, something that breaks new ground, something that allows me to flex my director muscle. You have got to think fast in this business, you've got to keep reinventing yourself to stay on top.More Michael Bay [10/12/2011 05:10:15]
You'll hear people say now, 'Oh, I don't want to see something in 3-D. That's wrong, because what they've seen is 3-D done poorly.More Michael Bay [10/12/2011 05:10:23]
