He got inked with 12 tattoos while making the film, which drove his director crazy, because she didn’t want her star showing up looking different in every scene. The memories of “American Honey” are now forever engraved on LaBeouf’s arms, neck, and both of his knees, which feature matching portraits of Missy Elliott. “I don’t love Missy Elliott like I wanna get two Missy Elliott tattoos,” LaBeouf says. “But you’re in a tattoo parlor, and” — he shrugs — “peer pressure.”
Is this what people in AA do? When you quit smoking, it's sunflower seeds.
He's not as petulant as Megan Fox, but I really think his Spielberg era is over except maybe for cameos. Maybe try the daughter idea next time.
LaBeouf makes a better target than the Arab Swordsman.
I usually don't side with establishment, but I'm seein' more with Attilla on this one. Don't forget, Shia' s been messed with by Hollywood since things were Even Steven.
Fury proved to me LaBeouf's adult talent -- and when you tack on his purported exceptional performance in Man Down, you cannot dismiss LaBeouf out of hand.
LaBeouf may be no Brando -- but he's certainly more than a Val Kilmer.
As for Spielberg, I've taken issue with him before and believe he lets his personal life (and personal agendas) mess with his films. I don't know who Spielberg was trying to stick it to more with what he did with KotCS: Lucas, the fans or LaBeouf, but I believe he was sticking it to someone -- all while having quality time with his family during the shooting.
That said, I'll say this about LaBeouf -- especially given his at-times erratic behavior post KotCS: continue to man-the-F-up.
No Marlon Brando, Harrison Ford or even James Dean would have done some of the (frankly) absurd stuff he was asked to do for KotCS (vine swinging etc.) -- especially bearing in mind that by the time LaBeouf shot KotCS, he was no newbie. So he shoulda walked (from KoTCS) -- career consequences be damned.
I'm glad to see that he's starting to own up to some of his past criticisms of Spielberg -- it would be great to see Spielberg step up a little himself.
