Shia LaBeouf Dropped Acid For His Latest Movie Role
According to The Playlist, LaBeouf allegedly dropped acid for his role in The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman, taking his inspiration from Mr. Penn!
In an interview with USA Today, LaBeouf said:
“There’s a way to do an acid trip like ‘Harold & Kumar,’ and there’s a way to be on acid. What I know of acting, Sean Penn actually strapped up to that (electric) chair in ‘Dead Man Walking.’ These are the guys that I look up to.”
Although Charlie Countryman isn’t the acid dropping kind of guy – it is indeed true that LaBeouf’s character trips on acid during the film.
It’s tough, though, when LaBeouf appears to compare himself to Penn and makes claims that his “Method-like” acting might have been “too real for a director trying to keep a diplomatic set.”
Too real indeed. LaBeouf will continue his possibly ill-advised adventures in pseudo-Method in Lars von Trier’s Nymphomaniac, which is now filming and is said to feature real sex.
The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman is set for release in 2013!
