Hollywood actor Shia LaBeouf has been in the movie industry for many years now and has worked with a number of directors. Most recently, Shia worked with Fredrik Bond and the two really hit it off together but Shia has admitted that this is not always the case and he has clashed with director's on occasion.
While talking to USA Today, LaBeouf explained, “I have had relationships with directors where it was reverence to the point of fear. That kills collaboration. This felt like a friendship.”
He added, “The guy says to me, 'Listen, the danger isn't really falling into the water. You might hurt yourself, but you'll survive that. But if you swing into [a neon light in the scene], there's no way you're going to survive that. So don't swing too much.’”
Shia continued, “You have to look them in the eye and trust them completely, like you would on a Transformers set. But it's a very different group with communication issues. Not everyone even speaks English.”
Shia LaBeouf and Fredrik Bond showed their movie The Necessary Death of Charlie Countyrman at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this month. The movie also stars Evan Rachel Wood and Mads Mikkelson.
