Shia Labeouf is not new to controversy, after famously saying last year that Steven Spielberg had 'dropped the ball' concerning the fourth Indiana Jones movie. He's also pretty much outed to the media that he and Megan Fox had an affair while shooting Transformers, even though Fox was already engaged to her husband at the time. It's looks like he's once again decided to open up about his experiences on studio films.
"I'm done," he tells The Hollywood Reporter of his former life as a big-budget action star. "There's no room for being a visionary in the studio system. It literally cannot exist. ... You give (director) Terrence Malick a movie likeTransformers, and he's (expletive). There's no way for him to exist in that world."
Labeouf is currently promoting 'Lawless' with Jessica Chastain and Tom Hardy, which is set to appear in limited release August 29th. He is also confirmed to appear in Lars Von Trier's 'Nymphomaniac', with Nicole Kidman and Stellan Skarsgard.
What do you think? Is Labeouf speaking out of turn, especially as someone who's made his fame and fortune our of blockbuster movies, or is he right? It truly looks like he's turning away from studio films right now, with a stream of one indie movie after another, but we'll see how long this can last.
