Michael Bay's quotes

  • A lot of directors don't want the pressure of a movie the size of 'Pearl Harbor (2001)'. But I love it. I thrive on it.
  • Directing is not a job. It's more like a career. Which is great!
  • I make movies for teenage boys. Oh, dear, what a crime.
  • I know [critics] have [been tough on my movies]. And that's why I've taken Jerry Bruckheimer's advice: I don't read them, I really don't.
  • Quentin Tarantino called me once. Someone had written 'Is Michael Bay the Devil?' Quentin said, 'Don't worry, last year they called me the Antichrist.'
  • I'm one of the few directors - it seems like a dying art - that actually shoot a lot in the camera.
  • To tell the truth, shooting action bores me now. But the audience has grown to like what I do and expect visually stimulating excitement. Staying in that genre is me being safe.
