Sulkowicz praises LeBeouf

Makes Statement0 Comments

Sulkowicz praises LeBeouf’s #ALLMYMOVIES performance work.

[It’s] a participatory art piece, a relational aesthetics art piece. It’s not just a stunt. I think there are things to think about in the piece…It’s the most egotistical thing on Earth. Yet, at the same time, because of the endurance quality of it where he has to sit there and suffer through himself, suffer through watching himself, it’s humble and inclusive. Like, ‘I will suffer through this with you guys, if you want.’

Interview magazine cover

Magazine Cover0 Comments

shiaLaBeouf appears on the November cover of Interview magazine. LaBeouf discusses his relationship with his father and his recent behavior.

I’m not a very intelligent person, and you’ve got to be a f–king genius to learn from other people’s mistakes, because you’ve got to be a very smart man to learn from your own. You’re only as good as your last thing, and I’m only thinking about the next thing. I’ve been a runner my whole life, running from myself. Whether to movies or drinking and drugging or f–king calamity or whatever it is, I’ve always been running. I’m a dude who loves delusion. It’s why I love being an actor—I never have to actually look at myself or be faced with my s–t or take responsibility. So it’s been an eye-opening thing to have to look at myself, at my life, and have these reflective moments.

Shia LaBeouf interview

Interview0 Comments

LaBeouf appears as a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote his latest film, Fury. He also tells an elaborate story of how he chased a homeless man, got drunk on whiskey, and got arrested at a cabaret in New York City.

So I land in New York coming back from Ireland, where I’m visiting my girl. In Ireland you drink whiskey, so I’d been drinking a lot of whiskey.

Baldwin: LaBeouf was fired

FiredInterview0 Comments

In a statement to Joe Hagan, Baldwin reveals the reason behind LaBeouf’s hasty exit from Orphans.  The actor corroborates that the two had “creative differences,” but goes on to say that the younger actor was ultimately fired.  Baldwin says he knew one of them had to go and even volunteered to leave the play rather than LaBeouf.

I said, ‘I’ll tell you what, I’ll go.’ I said don’t fire the kid, I’ll quit. They said no, no, no, no, and they fired him. And I think he was shocked.

Plagiarism apology

Apology0 Comments

LaBeouf issues a string of apologies to Clowes for the admitted plagiarism. The apologetic tweets begin sincere with:

Im embarrassed that I failed to credit @danielclowes for his original graphic novella Justin M. Damiano, which served as my inspiration. I was truly moved by his piece of work & I knew that it would make a poignant & relevant short. I apologize to all who assumed I wrote it.

As the online accusations continue, LaBeouf’s tweets begin to show signs of frustration and sarcasm, many of which contain plagiarized content themselves.  The most recent tweet contains a photo of an airborne apology, written in the sky by an airplane that was hired by the actor to say “I am sorry Daniel Clowes.”

shia-labeouf-details-august-2011LaBeouf appears on the cover of the August 2011 issue of Details magazine. He talks about getting into fights, hooking up with Megan Fox, and a date with Hilary Duff.

I would like to be George Clooney – diplomatic. I just don’t have the wherewithal yet or the inner serenity. My bulls— meter is tuned very sensitive. The minute it starts kicking up, I get back to truth, and sometimes that involves, you know, ‘I don’t want to take a picture.’ And if that’s the case, am I an asshole for being honest? Or am I an a–hole for being dishonest, smiling in your picture and I f—ing hate being there? Which one is worse? These are the questions I ask myself that George Clooney doesn’t ask.

Leaves ‘Transformers’ franchise

Interview0 Comments

LaBeouf tells MTV that the third installment of the Transformers series will be the end for his character Sam Witwicky.  The actor says he doesn’t believe there is anywhere to take the character in the franchise. LaBeouf believes that he has learned a lot working with Michael Bay and is willing to work in the director’s future films.

Transformers: Dark of the Moon may or may not be the end of the “Transformers” franchise on the big-screen — I’m betting on “may not,” for what it’s worth — but it’s definitely the end for Sam Witwicky.

She’s an unbelievably thought-provoking actress, the most talented actress I’ve ever met in my life, by leaps and bounds. Neither one of us are fame whores. It works out. It’s not like we’re the premiere couple; we’re not the red carpet king and queen.

Sometimes I feel I’m living a meaningless life and I get frightened. I know I’m one of the luckiest dudes in America right now. I have a great house. My parents don’t have to work. I’ve got money. I’m famous. But it could all change, man. It could go away. You never know.

I’ve been in love with every woman I’ve ever worked with (Megan Fox, Sarah Roemer and Michelle Monaghan). [But] there’s the three-month attention span that actors have. I don’t know if it’s mutual, but I really don’t care. They have to kiss me when ‘action’ gets called, anyway, so I’ll get what I want.
