“I think you need a sprinkle of insanity to be a good artist,” Shia said. “Definitely to be a good actor. It’s a bit insane what we’re asked to do as actors, which is get up on stage and get naked and turn around really slow and be observed and judged. A bit of trouble is needed. Good actors are troublesome. For me, finding a way to liquidate that trouble into something I can manage and play with as material has created a certain idea of what I am in the public. We work with that here.”

    That’s narcissistic bullsh*t. There’s no job IN THIS WORLD that requires the employee to literally “be a little bit insane” in order to do their job well. But narcissists love to believe they’re special, and that they don’t have to change and that society should love them and hold them in esteem no matter how nasty, stupid, or pathetic their behavior is. “But I’m an artist!!” is the cry of a narcissist who can’t accept responsibility for his behaviors.

    He’s speaking as an ACTOR and not as accountant or manager of a retail store!

    One of the best actors in my opinion.
