Details Profile on Shia LaBeouf

Details Magazine has an interesting article with Shia LaBeouf that reviews his career as he discusses his life, mistakes, and career. Among the revelations is his getting with his co-stars from the first two Transformers films. Below is the about the only quotes related to Transformers from the article which is worth the time to read. You can find it here. Thanks to Genocide Chaos for the link.
There was that time he rolled his truck while "philandering around," as he says, with his Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen costar Isabel Lucas. "It was sort of disastrous," LaBeouf says. "Neither one of us, I think, were in love. Just sort of experimenting or whatever." Technically the accident—in which LaBeouf's car flipped three times, pinning his arm and leaving his hand mangled—was the other driver's fault. But LaBeouf admits he'd had "three or four" beers a few hours before getting behind the wheel.

Asked if he hooked up with Fox, LaBeouf nods affirmatively. "Look, you're on the set for six months, with someone who's rooting to be attracted to you, and you're rooting to be attracted to them," he explains. "I never understood the separation of work and life in that situation. But the time I spent with Megan was our own thing, and I think you can see the chemistry onscreen." When I inquire about Fox's status at the time with her longtime boyfriend, Brian Austin Green, LaBeouf replies, "I don't know, man. I don't know. I don't know. I don't know. . . ."—repeating the phrase exactly 12 times with various intonations, as if trying to get it just right. Finally, he says, "It was what it was."


  1. He did it with Megan a loooooooottttt, ha ha ha

  2. New clip that moviefone put out! just thought you should know

  3. This is also worth quoting from the article:

    "Such truth telling hasn't always amused his colleagues. After being anointed by Steven Spielberg, LaBeouf gave a lukewarm review to Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull, blaming himself as well as the legendary filmmaker for its failings ("When you drop the ball, you drop the ball," he said at the time). "I got lambasted for that, and understandably so," he says, smiling. "Because you can't be an actor and be honest-that's crazy!" Although LaBeouf tells me that Harrison Ford privately applauded his outspokenness, Ford recalls the conversation differently. "I think I told him he was a farking idiot," the famously reticent star says. "As an actor, I think it's my obligation to support the film without making a complete ass of myself. Shia is ambitious, attentive, and talented-and he's learning how to deal with a situation which is very unique and difficult."

  4. He's going to end up dead a lot sooner than he thinks. 3-4 beers before driving? The guy is lucky he didn't kill anyone, or himself.
