He Said What?!
Shia LaBeouf is known for his peculiar sound bites (example HERE), but now that he's growing older, the actor turns 27 today (June 11), can we expect less foot-in-mouth moments from the Transformers star? Only time will tell but in the meantime, click the pics to relive 10 of the actor's craziest quotes (Megan Fox sex comments included).
Sex On Camera
LaBeouf told MTV that he will be having sex on camera for his role in Lars von Trier’s Nymphomaniac. "There's a disclaimer at the top of the script that basically says, 'We're doing it for real. Anything that is 'illegal' will be shot in blurred images. But other than that, everything is happening… It's going to be a wild movie, man. It's going to be a wild movie."
Shia's Family Values
He told Playboy in 2009 of his childhood, "The nudity was weird, especially when her friends came over. All of them would just be naked around the house. That was strange for me, and it was really bizarre when my friends were there. You’ve got your little buds over, and Mom’s, like, playing naked connect the dots or whatever. She’s in the middle of goddess-group time, where it’s literally a bunch of naked women tracing auras around one another’s bodies with incense and then sitting together and humming for prolonged periods of time."
LaBeouf told USA Today that he dropped acid to get into character for his film The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman. "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 [electric] chair in Dead Man Walking. These are the guys that I look up to."
'Indiana Jones' Dig
When asked if he would return to the Indiana Jones franchise, he told the L.A. Times in May 2010, "I feel like I dropped the ball on the legacy that people loved and cherished. If I was going to do it twice, my career was over. So this was fight-or-flight for me. I'll probably get a call. But he needs to hear this. I love him. I love Steven."
In May 2010 while promoting the third Transformers sequel, he told The Hollywood Reporter, "When I saw the second movie [in the series], I wasn’t impressed with what we did. There were some really wild stunts in it, but the heart was gone."
Be Like George
Comparing to himself to George Clooney when asked about his temper, LaBeouf told Details magazine, "I would like to be George Clooney diplomatic. I just don't have the wherewithal yet or the inner serenity. My bulls*** meter is tuned very sensitive. The minute it starts kicking up, I get back to truth, and sometimes that involves, you know, 'I don't want to take a picture.' And if that's the case, am I an a**hole for being honest? Or am I an asshole for being dishonest, smiling in your picture and I f***ing hate being there? Which one is worse? These are the questions I ask myself that George Clooney doesn't ask.
In May 2009, LaBeouf told Playboy of his mother, "Probably the sexiest woman I know is my mother. She's an ethereal angel. Nobody looks like that woman. If I could meet my mother and marry her, I would. I would be with my mother now, if she weren't my mother, as sick as that sounds."
Shia vs. Frankie Muniz
Shia told ET in Oct. 2010 of his feud with Malcolm in the Middle star Frankie Muniz, "I used to see him at premieres and stuff and it would always be like he was looking down on me, and then it turned into we're equal, and then it turned into 'Oh Frankie, I know that guy.'"
Work and Play With Megan Fox
When asked if he was intimate with Megan Fox while filming Transformers, LaBeouf told Details magazine in the Aug. 2011 issue, "Look, you're on the set for six months, with someone who's rooting to be attracted to you, and you're rooting to be attracted to them. I never understood the separation of work and life in that situation. But the time I spent with Megan was our own thing, and I think you can see the chemistry onscreen."
