5 Things I Love About Shia LaBeouf – Method Acting to ‘Even Stevens’ | Reel Movie Nation

As an avid user of the internet I often come across things the average person wouldn’t necessarily stumble upon. This includes random music, video clips, and pictures of things both edited and not. Shia is someone who appears pretty frequently on the websites I use. Aside from being absurdly perfect he is also an extraordinary actor and a very cool person. He’s more charming than most of the men out there, and in my opinion he is one of the most handsome men in Hollywood. From his acting methods to the projects he chooses to pursue, the career of this young star has kept me interested and waiting for more. This list is comprised of just a few of the many things I love about this very cool cat.

5. His character tripped acid, so he really tripped acid.

Sounds unconventional, but this go getter chose to go the distance for his most recent role in The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman which called for a scene where his character Charlie takes LSD. Reports say director Fredrik Bond was nervous filming someone in that state of mind, but LaBeouf at the very least tripped in order to get the vibes of how he really should behave during production. He referenced Sean Penn being an influence of his method because of the extremes he has taken for tough roles.

4. Oh, you need me to be naked? That’s cool.

The name Sigur Ros may not strike a chord, but through their forward thinking and progressive music this Icelandic band aims for new heights. At times the band’s creative juices mix with that of their fans, which, in this particular case, resulted in a music video influenced by the contestants of Sigur Ros’ Mystery Film Experiment. The winning video was a wonderfully understated and poetic drama narrated the band’s song “Fjögur Píanó”. The video also featured a very naked Shia! I was shocked when I heard the news and immediately went to Youtube to see the vid. While the video isn’t as intense as the press made it sound, Shia’s nudity was fitting for the piece and, in context, felt natural.
