Transformers actor Shia LaBeouf has revealed how he was actually on acid while filming the role for his latest movie The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman. Shia claims that he wanted the drug taking scene of the film to be as realistic as possible, so chose to do what he felt was necessary.
LaBeouf explained, "There's a way to be on acid. 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." However, first time feature director Fredrik Bond, who is helming the project, was not so keen on the realism.
Shia added, "Sometimes, it does get real. Too real for a director who's trying to keep a diplomatic set." It is not the first time that Shia LaBeouf has taken to making his performance look as real as possible, as he previously claimed that he would actually be having real sex for scenes in his other new movie The Nymphomaniac.
He said, "There's a disclaimer at the top of the script that basically says we're doing it for real. Everything that is illegal, we'll shoot in blurred images. Other than that, everything is happening." The Nymphomaniac is set to begin filming next month while The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman is set to be released next year.
