Майкл Бэй в Wall Street JournalРазное

Культовое интервью, в котором Бэй ставит на место Меган Фокс ("Well, that’s Megan Fox for you. She says some very ridiculous things because she’s 23 years old and she still has a lot of growing to do."), круто на самом деле другим:

You really shot all those scenes [in ‘Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen”] at the real pyramids?

One of the things that I pride myself on is that in situations where people say, “You can’t do that,” somehow I am always able to pull it off. I did it with “Pearl Harbor” and I did it with “Armageddon,” with the space shuttle, and luckily [Secretary General of the Egyptian Supreme Council of Antiquities] Dr. Zahi Hawass, who runs the pyramids, was a fan of the first “Transformers”—so he let us film there, even though we’re the first film to do so in 30 years.

Мне почему-то вспомнилась сцена из "Романа с камнем", где какой-то местный богач бросился помогать героям, узнав, что перед ним любимая писательница.
