Shia LaBeouf Gives First Post-All My Movies Interview: 'All I Want to Do Is Be Liked'

Shia LaBeouf‘s #ALLMYMOVIES was quite the viral sensation last week and now he is sitting down for his first interview after the big event.

“All I want to do is be liked,” the 29-year-old actor said in an interview with Newhive. “You just don’t want anyone to hate you. I walked out loving myself. Not in some grandiose, you’re f—ing awesome way, but in like, you’re a part of a community. You’re part of this human thing. You’re in this human thing.”

Shia talked about watching some of his early stuff with a theater full of people.

“Yes, I was being stared at and I’m the focal point and the pointing is happening, but the pointing is happening for me too. If we’re all pointing, then we’re on the same level. Yes it’s a film festival where you’re watching all of my movies, but a lot of this stuff—especially Even Stevens…the Even Stevens Movie was interesting, it’s all of our childhood,” Shia said. “It’s mine and it’s yours. It wasn’t just me smiling like that. If you look at the freeze frames, everyone is smiling like wow, I remember Beans. I remember that stupid-ass song. We were all looking at our yearbook together and we’re all in the yearbook. It felt like family, we were sitting there like a high school class. These are strangers, people I never met before. You don’t leave a museum friends with people. One guy was telling me he had just moved to New York three months prior and didn’t know nobody…he said he had 13 new friends, 13 new contacts of people he wanted to hang out with….The goal walking in is to highlight the connectivity of the networks.”

“Transformers 2 they could feel when I sunk in my seat. That’s not a performative thing. That’s me going through some kind of crisis. And I’m not the only one. I remember right before I fell asleep I looked next to me and the guy next to me was falling asleep. You can see it on the screenshot we’re both asleep. And the guy behind us is asleep,” Shia continued.
