Shia LaBeouf’s “Method Acting” Is The Reason Why He Got Fired From A Broadway Play And Ended Up In Jail
Seen above looking like a dirty hot, dick jelly-ridden hitchhiker that you picked up one night and had messy fuck times with in a motel room before waking up the next morning to find out that he stole your car and gave you crabs, Shia LaBeouf tells Interview Magazine (via Page Six) that “method acting” is what led him to a jail cell and is what got him pink-slipped from the Broadway play Orphans. When Shia got fired from Orphans for being difficult and he started terrorizing homeless guys in Times Square, some blamed it on Shia being Shia and others blamed it on booze, the bad shit or a mental breakdown. Shia tells Interview that the only drug to blame is AC-TING! It took him a while, but Shia finally played the Joaquin Phoenix card.
When Shia was on Jimmy Kimmel Live last week, he told Jimmy that getting too drunk on whiskey was the reason why he acted like a crazy bitch at Cabaret on Broadway. But Shia tells Interview that while rehearsing Orphans, he got so deep into the character of a street thug that he became that character. It wasn’t Shia who screwed with fellow wreck Alec Baldwin during rehearsals, it was his character. It wasn’t Shia who got arrested for acting like an ass at Cabaret, it was his character. At this point, I’d like to direct you to the right side of the stage where noted method actor Daniel Day-Lewis is rolling all of his eyes at Shia. This is what Shia farted up to Interview:
“Alec and I butted heads hard. I was sleeping in the park . . . At the time, I was out of my mind. My whole goal was to intimidate the fuck out of Baldwin. That was the role. And it wasn’t going to be fake. I wanted him to be scared . . . So I went about doing that for three weeks of rehearsal.
The 28-year-old actor was arrested in June after drunkenly slapping Cumming and later spitting at a cop.
“I was reading about performance art of the ’60s and ’70s and so I thought . . . we’re all involved here. It’s not just your stage. We’re all in here and we’re all part of this,” he said. “I was wrong.”
I don’t know if Page Six took Shia’s words out of context or not, but his “method acting” excuse doesn’t really make sense. The Cabaret thing happened months after he got fired from Orphans, so even after he got fired, he kept playing that character? And why did he go to AA if he was just method acting the whole time? Maybe Shia’s entire life is a performance art piece and he’s been playing the role of a former child star turned plagiarist hobo mess this whole time. Or maybe by “method acting” he means he did a lot of meth during rehearsals. I don’t know and I won’t pretend to know. None of us are fully equipped to understand Shia’s genius. And hopefully someone casts Shia as a mime so he can method act by shutting his lips for a minute.
Here’s pictures from tonight’s London Film Festival premiere of Fury which brought out Shia, his girlfriend Mia “Skin Brows” Goth (they look like a fancy version of Charles Manson and a Manson girl), Brad Pitt (giving me 70s porn producer), Logan Lerman and Michael Pena.
