    100% agreed with "Mr Franco". Very perceptive and probably more accurate view on the whole Shia thing than the one the media is portraying (including Perez). Well done mr Franco. Respect!!! And if the kid doesnt get it, he should have his therapist explain it to him.

    Franco is not th eperson to be making comments aboutactors acting out or acting oddly. That is like "Pot… meet kettle…"

    Having the same opinion, I simply hope Shia's friends are keeping in touch. There's nothing like bouncing your stuff off of peers to keep yourself grounded.

    BOOHOO. these celebutards are so self involved with an inflated sense of self importance. Get over yourselves already. Despite what they say, no one is as interested in celebrities, not even the media, as themselves. Biggest whiners ever. STFU, franco. Shouldn't you be mooching off your minimum wage earning fans so you can make some more subjectively crappy art instead of investing your own MILLIONS? Selfish Narcissist.

    LaBeouf made a fool of himself, so he pulled a smokescreen with something else to distract people from the first indiscretion. The second didn't work, as he underestimated the public. Then another smoke screen to hide the former. The sky writing didn't work. The bag over the head didn't work. Covering up for a mistake snowballed it. It didn't erase it. He should stop now as we know what has happened. Turns out we're not all sardines following the trawler.

    Hmmm, I think it might be worse than that since Shia sent a photo of his privates to the Nympomaniac film production team. The whole time knowing body doubles would be used in the actual scenes, before digitally adding the actors faces to the body double. This is nothing but weird.

    It's really hard to give pity to celebrities if that's what he's trying to get at.

    i whole heartly agree with JF. it is just a performing art for him and it is just a project. i mean he is an actor after all right and he is just showing the artist side of it

    I think James Franco just knows how to play the PR game better than Shia, nothing more:)

    I found this post and others while trying to figure out why Shia wasn't in Transformers IV, and here's what I think - yes, what he did with the bag on his head was bizarre - but did anyone consider the possibility he was trying to tell the public something without being sued in Hollywood?

    And was he already being smeared for not playing the game?

    For instance, the whole "Ew, we knew he was going crazy when he was so smelly, during filming for The Fury."

    Whatever. Daniel Day Lewis does this every day, to get in character, even before he won an Oscar, and no one said a word. And boo hoo anyway - don't you feel sorry for these poor actors making millions had to endure an actor trying to get into a WWII soldier's character?

    What's the count on talented people suddenly "going crazy" in Hollywood anyway? What does it HAVE to be before we start to realize it's not the person, it's the culture driving them there and that perhaps leaving the dysfunctional family is healthy?

    Watching the less talented be rewarded constantly must be frustrating - e.g., Judd Apatow's weed-induced "frat pack" getting roles way above their acting ability (ames Franco in "The Great and Powerful Oz"( or nominated for Academy Awards for playing themselves (Jonah Hill)

    Yes, they're funny, but it ends there - we've taken the joke of Tropic Thunder to beyond ironic and downright scary
