Michael Bay - Michael Bay Fires Back At Armageddon Apology Quotes

Moviemaker Michael Bay has blasted a Miami Herald reporter for misrepresenting him in a new article and allegedly putting words into the director's mouth about disaster film Armageddon.

The filmmaker was quoted apologising for the 1998 film he directed in a recent article and his apparent comments became big news around the world.

But now Bay has taken to his blog to clarify his remarks, insisting, "One press writer has gone too far in reporting false information."

The director writes, "He has printed the bare minimum of my statement... (and) twisted my words and meaning. I'm not in the slightest going to apologize for the third movie in my movie career, a film called Armageddon.

"(The reporter) asked me in effect what would you change if you could in your movies if you could go back. I said, 'I wish we had a few more weeks in the edit room on Armageddon'. And still today Armageddon is still one of the most shown movies on cable Tv. And yes, I'm proud of the movie. Enough said."
