Shia LaBeouf Explains Why It's Insane Being an Actor
Shia LaBeouf wears his favorite red tee while going to the gym on Monday (March 30) in West Hollywood, Calif.
The 28-year-old actor recently opened up about what it’s like to be an actor and artist in today’s society.
“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.”
