Though he might not be a favorite to be considered for an Academy nomination, Hollywood director Michael Bay does know how to entertain his audience. And ever since his 2007 film Transformers took the box-office by storm, there has been no turning back for Bay. As Mr. Bay continues to entertain us with his action-packed films, here are some of the interesting facts about him that we would like to share with you:
1. Till date, Michael Bay has destroyed 532 cars while shooting the Transformers movies. (Now we know where Rohit Shetty got his inspiration from!)
2. Watching the final cut of Indiana Jones and the Raiders of The Lost Ark inspired Michael Bay to make his own movies at the age of 15.
3. Bay is also an occasional actor and has done cameos in some of his films like Armageddon (1998), Bad Boys II (2003) and Avengers (2007).
4. It looks like Michael is pretty choosy about what he wants to direct as he has turned down many big offers like Van Helsing (2004), Red Dragon (2002) and Terminator 3: Rise Of The Machines (2003).
5. Michael Bay is distantly related to late Star Trek actor Leonard Nimoy. Limoy married his cousin in 1998.
