Shia LaBeouf likes to go all out for his craft, that’s for sure. He is willing to go the extra mile in what some refer to as method acting. He got naked for that Sigur Ros video and plans to have real sex in the upcoming Lars von Trier movie “Nymphomaniac”. So, it really should surprise no one that he dropped some acid for research for his role in “The Necessary Death Of Charlie Countryman.”
In a recent interview with “USA Today”, Shia said, “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 chair in Dead Man Walking. Those are the guys that I look up to.”
Interestingly enough, he drank so much moonshine for his movie “Lawless” that his co-star Mia Wasikowska wanted to quit the project altogether. Is he taking his method too far? What do you think?
