The star of Transformers 3 is desperate to convince us he's a Serious Actor.
Shia LaBeouf claims there's a necessary method to his
madness acting process and who are we to argue?
We discovered the actor was balls deep in moonshine on the Lawless set and we just learned he dropped acid to prep for a role in the upcoming Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman!
"There's a way to do an acid trip like Harold & Kumar, and there's a way to be on acid. What I know of acting, Sean Penn actually strapped up to that (electric) chair in Dead Man Walking. These are the guys that I look up to."
Is he really comparing himself to Sean Penn?
an absurd a bold statement but, for all we know, Shia was still tripping ballz!
Let's do a quick comparison:
Sean won two Oscars and was nominated for five. We aren't sure Shia was even invited.
Sean's range extends from a death row killer to America's first openly gay mayor. Shia is best known for staring alongside CGI robots in three movies based on toys.
Yup, probably the acid talking!
