Michael Bay, reviled by critics and beloved by fanboys, couldn’t care less if you hated Transformers 3.
"My films always get a bad rap critically," he tells us. "It’s like, ‘OK, whatever.’ Say what you want about Transformers 3, but 120 million people saw it. There’s a point where you just have to stop caring because you know your audience and you got to do what you do. Some people like it, some people hate it.”
His new movie, “Pain and Gain,” is out today. Check out Marlow Stern’s interview with the director as he dishes on on Roger Ebert, George Lucas, and easing up a bit.
