Okay, no idea if this is a hoax, but...I ****ing dare any of the Shia haters to watch this and defend this cockroach's behavior as he "interviews" LaBeouf...



Come on, Smiffy. Bring your best quip to the table. I'm sure this is your absolute dream, right?

I don't get it.

What did Hal Rudnick do wrong?

It's no different to trying to get a scheduled interview out of David Blaine when all he would do was stare and hold up a hand with an eye drawn on it.

I applaud Shia's acting ability. Never seem him so out of character before.


And I don't believe in 'absolutes'!

I refuse to believe you honestly don't see why this was disgusting behavior by Rudnick. Anyone with a functioning brain should see the fact the dude was absolutely eager to cruelly mock LaBeouf before even entering the room. If Shia really is going through a massive meltdown...think of it this way: does it seem like an acceptable thing to go up to a person having a meltdown and taunt them to their face? And record said taunt? And post it online, as if to say, "Hey, look kids! I harassed your favorite whipping boy, Shia LaBeouf! Aint I just hot stuff?"

Where I come from, that's the actions of a bully.

So, anyone else going to chime in on this? Or am I the only one with the balls to condemn this kind of behavior? Oh, wait, I forgot, this site partially sustains itself on LaBeouf hate...never mind.

So what?

Shia set himself up for it. He's re-marketing himself with this bag on his head caper. Furthermore he's calling it art.

If he really wanted to retire from public life he wouldn't be drawing attention to himself. It's calculated. And as I said, I applaud the manner in which Shia dealt with Rudnick. I don't know how he managed to keep a straight face. Hence he's a better actor than I gave him credit for.

Well I for one don't hate him. I liked him as an actor in Transformers, and as a person, who knows? I don't know him personally, only the public presence he creates for himself.


Hal Rudnick must have taken lessons from Dennis Pennis (Paul Kaye).

"Im not famous anymore" and "I'm retired from public life" but he still wants public attention in a live art installation featuring his mute self. Rudnick could have been a lot more creative in his 'interview', but then Shia could be doing something that makes sense instead of this recent display. Why not some dialogue? Rudnick was at least asking for a response.

No, Rudnick was trolling. And he knew it would get HIM attention. He is the one who comes off like a pure douchebag here. His dickish antics only accomplish making Shia LaBeouf sympathetic, ironically.

That video is cringe-worthy. But not because of LaBeouf.

Well, that's the whole point of doing it, wasn't it?

There are plenty of such 'art' exhibits that deserve the same.

He was taking the Dennis Pennis silliness approach to harassing celebrities.

Right. And it's not the least bit becoming.

Also, it has the exact opposite effect of its assumed intention for some of us. I watch that and I don't think, "Man, Shia LaBeouf has really lost it" so much as I think, "Wow, this Hal Rudnick goober is a real dick and I imagine only the threat of a lawsuit prevented LaBeouf from leaping over that table and throttling him."

We thought that about Dennis Pennis. It's a two-way street from the start. He was playing a character who was a dick. Some of the quicker witted celebrities were able to get the better of him. Shia did with Rudnick.

Really? You think Shia is that out of it? He looked totally in control of the situation to me. It was his gig, and that's the way he's decided to play it.

As far as I could tell the exhibit wasn't roped off. Inviting strangers in makes it a piece of guerrilla theatre.

No, I don't personally think he's out of it. But there is at least an element of all of this that could portend some kind of breakdown, which would not be the least bit funny or amusing.

That said, the only thing I concluded from that video for certain is that Hal Rudnick is an insufferable ****head.

The stunt reached a new level of ridiculousness Wednesday when "Stand by Me" and "Piranha 3D" actor Jerry O'Connell, in collaboration with the comedy site FunnyOrDie.com, began parodying LaBeouf at a gallery next door with "#IAMSORRYTOO" similarly plastered on the window. Inside, O'Connell donned a paper bag with the words "SUPER FAMOUS" on it.

The line to meet O'Connell was considerably shorter than LaBeouf's queue. O'Connell's one-day lampoon was particularly meta because many folks have drawn parallels between LaBeouf's "#IAMSORRY" display and artist Marina Abramovic's performance-art piece "The Artist Is Present," which featured Abramovic sitting across from visitors at New York's Museum of Modern Art in 2010.

Ultimately, several "#IAMSORRY" attendees said they were left scratching their heads, unsure if the grocery bag confessional they participated in was part of another meltdown from a former child star, a Joaquin Phoenix-like publicity stunt, an intellectual commentary on copycat culture or something in-between. However, no one queried said they regretted waiting in line.

"I grew up watching him on 'Evens Stevens,' so I never thought I'd be sitting across from him as an adult with a paper bag on his head," said James Gianti, a 21-year-old student who waited in line two hours. "I didn't really know what to expect. It was way more depressing than I thought it would be. He's just sitting there. The whole thing was just really, really depressing."

That's a cruel insinuation to make about a guy who's no longer famous trying desperately to regain his fame.

We don't know for sure what's going with Shia. Was that "art"? Contrived manipulation? A stunt for attention? Or is he sincerely in pain and having a very public meltdown? We may never know.

We do know, however, that Hal Rudnick is a weasely little *******.

Yes. Please, tell us more about how you somehow know that LaBeouf is just trying to get attention. For heck's sake, he very well may be. But we don't know for certain. From what I'm seeing and hearing, this looks like a legitimate mental breakdown. So this guy coming up to him and being an ass is basically a bully taunting someone with a mental problem.

Same goes for those FunnyOrDie idiots.

What Shia needs is mental help and for the haters to back off a little. Instead, we're basically going up to him and cackling in his face while poking him with sticks.

I know this is extreme, but...what if Shia kills himself? Like an awkward kid at school that is singled out and mocked by everyone, and he finally can't take it anymore and takes the emergency exit. I don't ****ing care if he's Michael Bay, if his breakdown progresses to such a point and results in the end of his life, that's a tragedy and a sign of how fanboy hatred has totally spiraled out of control.

Doing stupid things isn't necessarily a sign of mental breakdown. He's a product of Hollyweird and probably has more therapists and advisors than you can shake a stick at.

If he's written his career into a corner and simply chosen an odd way out of it to gain attention and sympathy, then it's disrespectful to assume he's gone nuts.

Imagine how crushing it would be for him if he were to read that his life choices now resembled the acts of the clinically insane? I mean, it could push him over the edge.

He's not famous anymore girls! Shia LaBeouf embraces delighted female fans after bizarre 'art show'

By Helen Zhao

PUBLISHED: 22:15, 17 February 2014 | UPDATED: 00:21, 18 February 2014


...

Having sat in stone cold silence for seven hours a day, ignoring any questions or comments, and looking utterly sullen faced and dreary, Shia was perhaps ready for some human contact.

And when the installation - titled #IAMSORRY - came to a close the 27-year-old actor suddenly dropped the act and engaged in a three minute hugging session with fans.

Yes exactly does look like a mental breakdown

Sadly, Shia's image would only suffer more, no matter how righteous he may be in doing so...

It's very good to have a sense of compassion and empathy, but I can understand Drifter's comment. Shia doesn't need your bleeding heart sensibilities, although he might like them. I don't know what Shia wants or needs.

But imagine some other credible actor doing what he has done or saying the things he has said. I can only imagine it comes from the cocoon of being a Disney starlet and then falling into being an upcoming Hollywood star: pretty much naiveté, which is not a crime of course.

I'm not saying he's a disaster as I am not interested in his hijinks as recorded by social media, and his mute live art piece has me asking more questions than having any immediate understanding. Maybe he has a good or clever point to make, but regardless I wish he would verbalise more.

My reaction to this is based on my assumption that Shia may really be having a loss of sanity, in which case, folks like that DO need bleeding-heart sensibilities. People suffering these kinds of breakdowns need support and compassion, not scumbags video-taping themselves mocking him just to get channel views.

Deckard: The report read "Routine retirement of a replicant."

Rachael: Have you ever retired a human by mistake?

Deckard: No. Well...I mean...it was hard to tell with the paper bag over his head.
