In the last few weeks, both Alec Baldwin and Shia LaBeouf have both gone very public to announce that they are retiring from public life. Their request for privacy during this time has been such a joke that Conan O’Brien turned it into one on his TBS show tonight.
Part of me wants to the two egomaniacs to see this and realize how ridiculous they have been. But then the other part of me knows if they did, then they might actually think this is a good idea and go ahead and do a farewell to public tour.
Shia LaBeouf has been in the press a lot recently because he reportedly plagiarized his short film from Daniel Clowes’ graphic novellas and his apologies to the writer for doing so. Well now the once hot actor says he is retiring from “public life.” Remember when Amanda Bynes and Justin Bieber said they were retiring? That didn’t last that long and I am assuming it will be the same for him.
On a positive note at least it looks he did plagiarize his full retirement Tweet, so that is a step in the right direction.
Shia LaBeouf was asked by Lars Von Trier’s production company, Zentropa Productions, “How did you hear about the film and the project?” Well he talked about how excited he got when he heard about the role and he really wanted it even though he didn’t think he had a chance of getting it. Then his people got a call and it was different than all the other casting calls they ever got. Shia explained, “The first info we got, and I’ll never forget this because my entire team reacted with such a fear. The first request on the production end, not from Lars, was pictures of my pen!s.” Knowing Shia’s recent history, I bet he sent in pictures of Ron Jeremy or Michael Fassbender’s junk to get the role of his lifetime. I mean, I wouldn’t hire him to play the part after having seen his part in Sigur Rós’ music video Fjögur píanó. Would you?
The new very NSFW trailer is out for Nymphomanic and it looks more like the cheap porn clips you can watch on any adult website than an artsy film about sex. Because of that I will not be unwrapping this photo on Christmas Day.
Shia LaBeouf is starring in Nymphomaniac and he will be doing an English accent in it. All I have to say is what he says in all of his movies, “No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no.” That and he is the worst Yank to do a Brit accent since Dick Van Dyke attempted one in Mary Poppins.
Shia LaBeouf was a guest on The Late Show yesterday and David Letterman asked him about the boot on the foot. The actor explained that he broke his foot while jumping rope? Did he do it trying to join a double dutch team? Nope he took up boxing after he got fired from Orphans. I wonder who he was picturing when he was punching the bag? Could it be his former-co-star that he talked about on the CBS talk show?
Shia LaBeouf took it all off for Sigur Rós’ music video Fjögur píanó and I have to quote him to express how I feel about it, “No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no.” I just don’t know what to make of what I just saw. It is like one of those routines on So You Think You Can Dance that the judges say is absolutely brilliant and deep, but I have no idea WTF the dancers just did.
What did you think of it? Oh there is something I totally feel after seeing him completely naked, he really needs to manscape because it would make him look so much bigger. And you know what I think he needs all the help he can get.
Out of all the stars in Hollywood, Shia LaBeouf is the best one for the buck according to Forbes for a second year in a row. As in “for every $1 studios spend on the 24-year-old actor his films return an average $81 of profit.” In a distant second was Anne Hathaway who did a little better than Harry Potter. Coming is 4th and almost half as much as Anne is Sherlock Holmes’ Iron Man Robert Downey Jr.
1. Shia LaBoeuf – $81 earned for every $1 paid
2. Anna Hathaway – $64
3. Daniel Radcliffe – $61
4. Robert Downey Jr. – $33
5. Cate Blanchett – $27
6. Meryl Streep – $21
7. Jennifer Aniston – $21
8. Johnny Depp – $18
9. Nicholas Cage – $17
10. Sarah Jessica Parker – $17
Not on the list are Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, any of the Frat Pack or any of the Twilight stars, I wonder if that will change their salaries when they negotiate deals for their next movies? I am also curious to see Wall Street will drop Shia down a notch and if Jennifer Aniston’s The Switch will make her switch out with one of the Brangelina’s?
As we all know bananas are phallic looking and looking at the way Shia LaBeaouf is downing that long yellow fruit, I wonder what he is trying to tell us? Look at the way he is licking the tip of it and also he seems comfortable with it be a mouth full in the last picture. So I am sure I am not alone wondering what he is trying to say with the banana? Oh wait I just figured it out he is trying to tell us that bananas are good for us, they are low in calories and high in potassium!
