Shia LaBeouf Stays Cool In Canada
Shia LaBeouf takes a walk with a cup of coffee around Yorkville on Saturday (September 11) in Toronto, Canada.
The 24-year-old actor recently admitted director Oliver Stone bruised his ego by suggesting he ‘wasn’t an actor’ at their first meeting. “My first meeting with Oliver, he was really expedient about killing any ego or conceit on my part,” he told the LA Times.
“He said, ‘Don’t worry, Tom Cruise wasn’t an actor when I first worked with him either.’ It was like a knife to my heart. But I went on to become the most competent and astute of anyone on set about the business out of necessity. Otherwise, I felt like a drowning man. To sit in a room with these actors … I was just the dude from Transformers,” Shia said.
