Shia LaBeouf is opening up about one encounter during his “I Am Sorry” art installation that did not go the way he had hoped.
The 28-year-old Fury actor previously sat in a room totally silent for five days and met with anyone who waited on line to greet him.
“One woman who came with her boyfriend, who was out side the door when this happened, whipped my legs for 10 minutes and then striped my clothing and proceeded to rape me… then walked out with her lipstick smudged to her awaiting boyfriend who i image was quite hurt by it,” Shia said. “All this happened in front of hundreds of people… Yea it was no good. Not just for me but her man as well.
“On top of that my girl [Mia Goth] was in line to come see me because it was Valentines Day & i was living in the gallery sleeping in a sleeping bag for the duration of the event – we were separated for 5 days,” Shia added. “No communication. So it really hurt her as well as i guess the news of it traveled through the line. She was only about 25 people back when she came in she asked for an explanation and i couldn’t speak so we both sat with this unexplained trauma silently. It was painful. The hardest part of the show.”
Shia made the comments in an email interview with Dazed and Confused. He also participated in a video interview in which he and the reporter sat in a room totally silent for an hour while GoPro cameras recorded their blank faces.
