Truth rating: 10

By Daniel Gates




Michael Bay says bring on the haters.

The Transformers: Age of Extinction director is asked in a new MTV interview about his “love-hate relationship with the fanboys” who criticize his big-budget spectacles.

“No, they love to hate,” replies Bay. “I don’t care, let them hate. They’re still going to see the movie!”

(Indeed, as Gossip Cop reported, the new release could hit $100 million in its opening weekend.)

Bay continues, “I think it’s good to get a little tension… I used to get bothered by it, but I think it’s good to get the dialogue going. It makes me think, and it keeps me on my toes.”
