Shia LaBeouf: I'm Going To Work Until the Business Says 'No'

Shia LaBeouf: I'm Going To Work Until the Business Says 'No'

Shia LaBeouf arrives at the airport to catch a departing flight out of town on Sunday (May 20) in Nice, France.

The 25-year-old actor spent a few days at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival, premiering his film Lawless with co-stars Jessica Chastain, Tom Hardy, Mia Wasikowska, and Guy Pearce.

Shia also attended the photo call for Lawless this past weekend.

“I’ve made a lot of movies about plot and device,” Shia told the Washington Post at the festival about choosing film roles. “Now, I find myself being attracted to — and being allowed to make — more movies about people and characters.”

“I’m going to be doing things that I like for a while, until the business says ‘No, we need you to do this, or you can’t work,’” Shia added.

    Guess REHAB was good to him and he it. You only need to watch a few youtube videos back to see how stoned and hyped up he oft was. Esp. when he was on late night talk shows…..not good. Although the drugs have clearly AGED him, he will at least live.

    @LINDSAY LOHAN WILL WIN OSCAR:

    LOL, can’t take anyone who has a name of linday lohan will win oscar seriously. Shia has 7 number one movies in a row, is in high demand and respected as a actor. Something Lohan won’t ever achieve.

  • oh not this slut again

    I AM NOW SSAYING NO SHIA. YOU HAVE BECOME TOO OVEREXPOSED AND THAT CHARM OF YOURS IS KIND OFF DEAD AND THATS WHAT YOU HAD GOING FOR YOU. ACTORS WITH A BIT OF MYSTERY AND PRIVACY ARE BETTER THAN FAMEWHORING MEANINGLESS BLOCKBUSTER ACORS. ACTORS THAT PICK THEIR PROJECTS CAREFULLY AND DONT CAVE IN AND TAKE WORK JUST BECAUSE THE MONEY IS GOOD ARE VERY HARD TO COME ACCROSS. SO GO AWAY SHIA.

  • @26

    Acting had nothing to do with the success of the transformers movies. Shia, Rosie and Megan all proved that fact.
    And what evidence do you have that he is a respected actor?
    He proved how horrible an actor he was in Indiana Jones. People don;t respect drunks. They laugh at them.

    Review from Lawless

    All three of the Bondurant brothers are excellent, sharing the responsibilities of the roles equally well, though Shia Labeouf arguably carries more as the narrator/protagonist proper. He is brilliant, defying any reservations based on past associations (with such dross as Transformers) with an emotionally pricked, occasionally swaggering performance as the youngest and most fragile Bondurant brother.

    It is in his character that the chief gangster film are visible: he holds the same aspirational desires as the best gangster anti-heroes, burning with ambition and happy to wear the spoils of his work as trophies in the same way that Ray Liotta‘s peacock-like Henry Hill in Goodfellas. But despite the bravado, Labeouf is best in the more emotional scenes, and the decision to play most of the film’s major events through his eyes, or at least through his emotional filter is hugely rewarding.

  • lol

    Hillcoat praised the more adult performance for LaBeouf.

    “He’s actually very nuanced and incredibly subtle and very real,” says Hillcoat. “There’s a real tenderness, as well. For him, it was something that he’s been dying to do for some time.”

    The film drew mixed reviews at Cannes after screening for the media Saturday, but generally positive ones for its performances. The film blog IndieWire wrote that the movie “will silence (LaBeouf’s) critics.”

  • lol

    But it’s Shia LaBeouf who will silence his critics with this film. Finally given more to do than run away from Transformers and yell “OPTIMUS!” he brings a mix of the hopeless romantic, the earnest achiever and loyal brother that is compelling. As the central figure of the three, the movie relies on him and he delivers.

  • ash

    his performance in lawless got tons of good reviews!!proud of him

  • hello

    how did this guy become an actor? he should stick to what he knows
    he can be funny but he is boring when he does drama, cool in action movies, dont get pretentious..

  • @lol

    So more than one reviewer stated that this will “silence his critics”?
    That means that peopel DON’T consider him a good actor. That they are SURPRISED that he actually turned in a good preformance.
    Good for him if he did, but you aren’t really helping your case.
    And a couple of good reviews doesn’t help his reputation as an obnoxious, spoiled drunk.

  • lol

    Do some research, read the reviews, they aren’t suprised they knew he could act just like his earlier movies Guide to Recognizing Your Saints, Holes, Bobby, etc. He continuely get cast because studios and directors know he can deliver. Yes he had issues with alcohol and is working on them, it you got rid of everyone who had substance issues Hollywood would lose half their actors and directors.
