Moore Pleased Teenagers Like His Rebel Status

MICHAEL MOORE believes his movies appeal to teenagers because of his anti-establishment credentials. Moore, whose 2004 documentary Fahrenheit 9/11 slammed U.S. President George W. Bush's response to the 11th September terrorist attacks, is proud his films are teaching a new generation to question their surroundings. The 53-year-old tells MTV.com, "The reasons my films have been popular amongst teenagers is because I'm an adult your dad's age, but I'm telling you to stick it to the man! "I want young people to rebel. I want them to break the rules, to not just do what they're told." And Moore is also pleased that many teenagers, some of whom are not old enough to watch his movies in the cinema, are viewing his work via illegal DVDs and Internet leaks. He adds, "I've always been happy in the past when teenagers have downloaded pirated copies of my movies because my movies, to this point, have always been R-rated. "Teenagers should be able to see my movies, and they haven't been able to, so they're downloading them and they're sharing them, and I think that's great."
