My friends told me that I was a bad actor. I don't remember if my feelings were hurt or not but they had their way.
---Does it mean that they were right or they said what they wanted to say?
It means they got what they wanted. What they wanted depends on the context. Perhaps they wanted 'you' not to have a main part in the play they were putting on
Sometimes - for example a theatrical villain (usually with a curly moustache) who has abducted a young bride wants only One Thing. In this case, "way" can be given its own adjective: 'The wicked uncle had his evil way with his young ward.'
