Hipster ingenue/butterfly penis artiste Shia LaBeouf is still bitching about getting paid millions of dollars to star in Transformers because now no one takes him seriously as an actor. So here he is telling USA Today how he’s decided to solve that problem by dropping acid on set and agreeing to literally have sex on camera for director Lars Von Trier which, to The Beef’s credit, he’s convinced his girlfriend doesn’t count as cheating:

On doing acid on the set of The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman:
“There’s a way to do an acid trip like Harold & Kumar, and there’s a way to be on acid,” says LaBeouf, 26. “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.”

On agreeing to have actual sex on camera with someone who’s not his girlfriend:
“I have ethics, I’m not completely out of my mind,” says LaBeouf, who got comfortable with full-frontal nudity shooting a music video for Icelandic band Sigur Rós’ Fjögur Pianó, released this summer.
“But I don’t think there’s anything wrong with sex. Sex is beautiful if it’s done right. And I wouldn’t just do it for no reason. … Sex is different than love, and there is a separation, and that middle gap is what the movie’s about.”

On the plight of being a millionaire:
“If I could give the money back and get all the credibility in the world that I’m seeking, I would do it tomorrow,” he says. “In a heartbeat.”

In all honesty, I would actually respect Shia LaBeouf if he drove up to Dreamworks studio, wrote them a check for the exact amount he made from all three Transformers and said, “Here. Take your dirty robot money. I make art with my dick now.” Or just write me that check. I’ll credit him until the penis butterflies come home. “Did you see the new Shia LaBeouf movie? Dude.” And that’s just a taste.

  1. “I have no credibility! Nononononononononono!”

  2. I have to words for this ingrate: Even Stevens.
    That is all…

  3. YoMamma

    Well, he could start by shaving the pubes off of his face and not perming his hair… What a fucking douche this guy is.

    Newsflash: If you weren’t in Transformers nobody would know who you were, nor would they give a shit. Kind of like your life right now, just without all the money.

    • Yes, It's True

      Right on. This sanctimonious shithead got to appear in movies with 2 of the biggest pop icons of all time- Optimus Prime and Indiana Jones, and he pulls this I’m a serious “actor”, “ar-teest.” non-sense. (Not to mention appearing with Gordon Gekko and banging Megan Fox, as nice side bonuses). He is a lucky sonuvabitch that got to star in many movies he had no business really being in. There were many other actors (better looking and at least as, if not more, talented) that could have played Sam Witwicky- Zac Effron, Taylor Lautner, Taylor Kitsch, or maybe even Jessie Eisenberg or any of the young actors from the Harry Potter movies. Save for the fact, the movie gods like Spielberg, blessed Shia Labeouf with the chance.

  4. The Most Interesting

    Didn’t the Beef get beat like a red-headed stepchild in a bar fight? On camera? And then whine like a little bitch?

  5. General Zod

    Donate all the money to salvation army and go do a documentary about the poor in the USA. No? Didn’t think so. STFU.

    • Kneel Before Zod

      Right? I love the I would give all my money away bullshit. Shia should do exactly what you said. I would give him credibility. Gee he gets to make art now, since the bills are paid. Fucking fake ass bullshit.

  6. DeucePickle

    Ha, he “makes art with his dick now” ….that was awesome.

  7. rican

    Another self absorbed hollywood asshole.

  8. Mary Feeney

    He tossed whatever credibility he may have had when he kissed and told about doing it with the Fox.

  9. EricLr

    “If I could give the money back and get all the credibility in the world that I’m seeking, I would do it tomorrow”

    …but I won’t, of course.

  10. YagiSka

    It’s not Transformers that’s ruining your credibility, trust me.

  11. bonerspunk

    Eddie Vedder is looking terrible these days!

  12. Deacon Jones

    Maybe if he didnt look like a raging alocholic Hasidic Jew he’d get some street cred back.

  13. Cock Dr

    This pube faced whiny douchebag has had the great good luck to get a huge break in the movie business, enabling him to do things like bang Ms Fox, take drugs and simulate sex while getting paid for his limited acting capabilties, but this winner of life’s lottery cries about “loss of credibility”.
    I hope his next acting gig is a dramatization of life in a leprosy colony.

  14. JC

    Maybe, with millions in the bank, he could now do small indie/art house movies to show off his acting chops.

    Or wave his dick around in the a Sigur Ros video. Same thing, I guess.

  15. I’m looking forward to Lawless. Oh and Shia? Stop your bitching.

  16. Bianca

    What a twatface. He’s like Kim Kardashian; “Oops, if I could undo all my actions so people wouldn’t see me as a giant douche, I would, but since I spent my money on mansions, cars, fancy clothes and vacations, err, I mean, I can’t change the past, I’ll just continue talking out of my ass…..and cry into my 5000 thread count Egyptian sheets.

  17. SWG

    That is just step one. Afterwards he still need to undo Indy 4… Swinging monkeys… Just saying.

    • He could have raped Harrison Ford onscreen while wearing a fedora and done less damage to the franchise. So not only does he have “creditability” with which to be concerned, but those of us who were eleven in 1981 feel like he punched our inner children in the balls. It’s much more Spielberg and Lucas’ faults, but he is the face of the problem.

    • Eddie Baby

      It wasn’t swinging with the monkeys as much as casting LaDouche in the first place.

      • It was the monkeys, the casting, but most of all the fact that Han Freaking Solo was never confronted with so farfetched an alien. Those things made the Cantina scene look like Friday at Chili’s.

  18. SIN

    He played an idiot on Disney and he wants THAT back?

  19. Inner Retard

    About credibility, he both defended and attacked Megan Fox in the Bay fiasco within the same week. As for full frontal nudity he may be comfortable with it but we will never be.

  20. El Jefe

    Can they put him in a movie where the lead character dies in a fiery plane crash and he does the same for realism and “art”.

    What a fucking jackoff.

  21. Video Bastard

    He should know by now you can buy credibility WITH money not by giving it away.

  22. Sean Penn’s character was killed by lethal injection in “Dead Man Walking.” Credibility? Let’s talk intellectual capacity, Beef.

  23. Ben

    Transformers has nothing to do with his lack of credibility. He’s an idiot. End of story. Every time he opens his mouth he loses any credibility that he may have gained.

  24. Sir William

    Thank you Shia. It is nice to know that the next generation of great actors takes things so seriously.

    His last few movies were all turds, so I wonder how he got into those parts? Did he eat the turd, or did he just roll around in them?

    I wish he would just play a douche in his next film. He needs no practice for that it seems.

  25. Instahater

    This kid needs to just accept and respect the long running tradition of sucking Michael Bay’s dick to get a name out there, just like all of the other girls before him.

  26. Zergling

    ” I would do it tomorrow” because today he has to try and blow as much as he can, jeez he doesn’t want to look poor.

  27. he’d give back all that money until he wanted to do something fun again like right now.
    i will give him all the credibility he wants as a paid spokesman for him. all it will cost him is all of his millions and maybe his soul.

  28. Shia: “If I could give the money back and get all the credibility in the world that I’m seeking, I would do it tomorrow”

    Mr Obvious: “Well, you could donate it to charity and feed children starving in Afri..”


  29. dontkillthemessenger

    Well, I’m glad to see he’s still proud of his phenomenal work in “Indiana Jones, The Temple of… WTF? Is that really aliens in this shit… OMG I think that’s a hologram of Harrison Ford because he couldn’t possibly have signed onto dogshit like this that damn near ruins the franchise.”

    I think that was the name of it.

  30. timbea

    hello actor! their just movies and movies don`t give credibility.
    what you do in life does, use the money and do some charity work don`t just write a check.

  31. dennis

    Shia can’t keep blaming Transformers or Indiana Jones for the fact he simply can’t act.

    Doing Indie films for minimum wage with your dick out isn’t acting either.

  32. JayceeM

    Maybe he should get a haircut, shave off that stupid beard and stop acting like such a tool.

  33. fifergirl

    He was an actor before Transformers??

  34. He lost his credibility with me back in 2007 when he was arrested for criminal trespass at a Walgreens in Chicago. Do you know how obnoxiously drunk you have to be in a downtown Chicago Walgreens at 2:30 am on a Sunday morning to be asked to leave?

  35. I thought he lost his credibility with Even Stevens.

  36. anonymous

    He would gain some instant credibility as an actor if that realistic sex movie (aka porn) Shia wants to make is about a gay men and he is the one on the receiving end of an anal scene.

    • This.

      You want to be taken seriously? You want to claim that fucking another person when in a relationship is okay when it’s ‘for a reason’? FUCKING PROVE IT. Sleeping with some chick is only proving that you’ll fuck girls, not that you’ll do what’s necessary in the name of the craft in order to have ‘credibility’. Let some guy shit on you while you suck his cock because it’s part of the plot and maybe I’ll take you seriously.

  37. Sliver

    He can give all his money to me, but only if he promises to leave after I have the check in my fat little hand. I don’t want any creepy, hipster douches hanging around, scaring my corgi.

  38. Snuff films are sorta artsy.
    Just sayin….

  39. JMC

    I’m Still Here the sequel.

  40. What a pretentious douchebag. I don’t usually use that word, but it’s just so fitting.
