Eh. I don't dislike the guy. He has a mildly annoying appearance and screen persona but he's a reasonable actor and he appears to be aware of his failings. He also had the balls to tell Spielberg and Lucas that Indy 4 was poor thanks to their script. He doesn't deserve much blame for that particular piece of crap.

Rent Party: gunga galunga: Rent Party: So the guy drops acid, drinks moonshine, and (allegedly) bangs hot starlets on camera.

Why do we hate him again?

Read one of this guy's interviews. And then you'll know.

Why would I do that?


It will answer your question. I used to not get the Shia LaBeouf hate, either. I do now.

MayoSlather: FTA: One thing he won't be doing will be revealing his genitals in Nymphomanica, with Von Trier using body doubles.

I thought he said he was having "Real sex" in the Von Trier film? Why would he be having real sex in a scene where nothing is shown? Sounds like someone is shya.


...from THE SAME DAMN ARTICLE, it says 'which has since been debunked'.

-3 points for that, and -20 for not completing the 'ina le buff' joke.

I don't really care about him either way, but I think he's been part and parcel of screwing up some of the 'biggest' movies for the past few years. Indiana Jones, Transformers, and while I still liked and enjoyed Die hard a lot (seriously, they shot down a helicopter with a truck, what's not to enjoy?) he wasn't needed in that movie at all.

Other than that, meh. Taking acid to portray someone who's on acid? Reasonable, and millions of people have dropped acid. Drinking moonshine? OH HOLY HELL he drank hillbilly vodka. Hell, none of that is even remotely as 'up there' as Steve Carrell getting his chest waxed live on tape for 40 year old virgin.

Well then you should be happy considering he wasn't in the new Die Hard.

/no seriously that was Justin Long
//IMHO waaay more annoying the Shia

This reminds me of the old story about how, during the filming of Marathon Man, Dustin Hoffman (definitely a Method actor) came in looking like total shiat, and Lawrence Olivier asked him what was wrong. Hoffman responded that he'd been awake more than 24 hours, because in the scene they would be shooting, his character had been awake for a very long time as well.

Olivier's response? "My boy, you could just try acting."

Charlie Sheen was on Jay Mohr's podcast this week and he talked about Platoon and mentioned that Tom Berenger never broke character even after shooting was done for the day, so while they were in the Philippines after work they'd be drinking in a hut that passed as a local bar and Berenger wouldn't talk to anyone because he was "in character."

Mohr asked him "is that something you'd do for a role?" and Sheen answered "fark no, that's too much work!"

I can understand needing to get your head right for a role, but if you can't jump out of it for the entire duration of filming, maybe you aren't acting. You're just trying on a new personality for a while.

It's definitely two different approaches to the work - they talked about Daniel Day Lewis and how he won't break character. Their general consensus was: if it works for you, do it, but if you don't have to, more power to you. After all, Tom Hanks has turned in some great roles and he didn't stick with the character after shooting.

What is all this "hey, we all used to think DiCaprio couldn't act when Titanic came out and look how that turned out" crap? DiCaprio had already earned an Oscar nomination 4 years prior to Titanic. Anyone who said he was talentless at the time wasn't paying attention.

Shia LaBeouf, on the other hand, is terribly talentless. Fark almighty.

I don't know the answer to that question. All I know that for a while, I never understood Shia LaBeouf hate. Then I read a couple of interviews that he gave. And now I know. The guy truly is a dick.

OK, My new man crush has been Tom Hardy for a while, and his latest film, Lawless, also has La Boufe in it as a co-star. Hardy is a brilliant actor (See "Bronson" for mind bending cinema). Last night I was reading about the Lawless shooting where they quoted La Boufe quite a bit. Other than coming off like a simpering Tom Hardy fanboy (understandable) I still don't get the hate.

So help me out.
