Shia

This might be a case of an actor who thinks he’s an artist. If this is a performance, then someone needs to tell Shia LeBeouf  that he’s an actor–the speaker of words created for him, not by him–and not an artist. He’s the canvas, not the artist who creates the portrait. He should  just be happy with the disproportionate amount of compensation he receives for mediocre talent and leave the art/social commentary to those who actually have something to say.

And if this is a case of drunken buffoonery, then I fear he really is bankrupt in the imagination department.

  3. Honestly, I don’t mind him as an actor. He’s a total dick, but I look forward to seeing what he has next in store for his career.

    • Yes but he’s not terribly unique. A hundred guys could do what he does. I think actors get confused because they say the words that bring the work to life but the hard part is writing the words. That is where the the very difficult part of the creative process lies. Actors in the Hollywood machine are grossly over paid, they should just be grateful and not act like tortured souls.
