It’s been a really long and really weird summer in Shia LaBeouf–land. First, there was his full frontal, interpretive dancing, fuzzy pink vest-wearing appearance in Sigur Ros’s music video for “Fjögur Píanó.” Then LaBeouf said he’d be willing to have unsimulated sex on camera for his role in the upcoming Lars von Trier film Nymphomaniac—which may or may not have caused this breakdown his girlfriend had. He has also sworn off studio films and is all about indie movies now because, in his own words, doing a big-budget movie involves studios “sticking a finger up your ass.” Now, LaBeouf has also admitted that he dropped acid on the set of crime comedy The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman in order to prepare for a scene in which his character does the same. “There’s a way to do an acid trip like Harold and Kumar, and there’s a way to be on acid,” he told USA Today. “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.” In the same interview, LaBeouf also let slip that he got moonshine drunk for a scene in the new bootlegging drama Lawless—but it’s OK, guys, because it’s for art.
