Shia LaBeouf's Broken Fingers -- FIRST PICTURES!
This past Sunday, the 22-year-old actor was arrested for suspicion of a DUI misdemeanor after a collision that resulted in his truck flipping upside down.
Shia‘s boss, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen director Michael Bay opened up to Access Hollywood about the situation. Here’s what he had to say:
On Shia being sober during the time of the incident: “He was not drunk. He was drinking hours and hours before.
His passenger and Transformers co-star Isabel Lucas (not pictured) walked away with minor injuries, as did the passengers in the other car.
On writing in Shia’s injury into the movie: “I spoke to him yesterday in the hospital. His two fingers are pretty mashed, but we’re figuring out a way to shoot around it, kind of write it in the story.”
On a conversation he had with Shia about safety days before the crash: “We had a little heart to heart the week before when he bought a brand new motorcycle and I [said] ‘Dude! You cannot ride that motorcycle! If you crash, you put 1,500 people out of work,’” the director recounted. “He said, ‘Ok, I won’t ride it, I won’t ride it, I’ll just drive my truck.’”
On Shia being a good kid after all: “The kid really has his head together and you know, he’s only 22. He’s doing a great job on this movie. He’s really matured since the last one and I love working with him.”
