    Good for him and he's completely right about the Hollywood machine.

    The "Hollywood machine" gave him a paycheck. He should be grateful.

    As it stands, he's just being a pretentious jackass who thinks criticizing The System makes him smarter and a better actor. :rolleyes:

    Whatever legitimate grievances against Hollywood there may be, an actor who did three Transformers movies airing them just does not seem very authentic.

    Of course he did it for a paycheck. We all do things for paychecks that we might not like and are well within our rights to criticize those jobs. The fact that he's right inside the Hollywood machine means he gets to see it up close and personal in a way that we don't. He's likely much more annoyed by it than all of us.

    The "Hollywood machine" would not exist if a large proportion of the public did not want to see the movies it produces.

    There is a place for the "Hollywood machine," just as there is also a place for pretentious art-house crap and Dogma-95 and all the rest of it. Hollywood would be no more palatable if it was all like Von Trier and his ilk, vs. how it is now.

    Side note: I suppose this increases the likelihood that Transformers 4 will be a remake of the 80's film... ;)

    LMAO! :rommie:

    Pretty sure I did right after reading that article about Shia starring in some soft porn movie.


    Hahah - another good one!

    Apparently Shia likes the "pretentious art-house crap" more than the Hollywood machine so I'm glad he's going into it. And just because a lot of people watch something doesn't make it good; it often makes it terrible because to appeal to many people you usually have to be pretty broad and unfocused so everyone is pleased.

    Shia must have found some "Spice Girl strength" to want to do more than Michael Bay movies. :)

    Maybe it took him three Transformers movies to realize it.

    While reading over this thread, I can't get the sound of Shia LaBeouf screaming "Optimus!" out of my head.

    And considering this thread is about Shia LaBeouf having sex, that's generating some interesting imagery.

    I miss the innocent child actor on "Even Stevens."

    We have a TV on in the background here at work, he was on the Kathy Lee show and looked like a scruffy bum, why do people keep beards when they grow in patches?
    Do you realize how stoopid you look?

    He also had his hair in a short pony tail, I had no idea what he was saying as the sound is down but he sure was animated in saying it.

    Or maybe it was the nice fat bank account that gave him the "balls" to speak out.

    I'm supposed to view LaBeouf with skepticism because he was smart enough to ensure his financial independence before he spoke out against the contemporary Hollywood studio system?

    As an actor who has starred in both independent films and Hollywood blockbusters, LaBeouf seems well-positioned to understand the differences between the two. What he's saying isn't wrong, either; for proof all you have to do is witness the glut of independent filmmakers hired in the past ten years by Hollywood to oversee blockbusters only to see anything new they might bring to the table swallowed up by the studio's desire to produce a safe and familiar product for mass consumption.

    Of course, this isn't really a new phenomenon, but it's still easy to get mad about it, especially if you're a fan of anything other than tentpole releases.

    Insiders tell me that Lebeef is notoriously tough to work with, and is a spoiled brat which probably derives from his time working as a child star. His new attraction to artsy fluff pieces that aren't nearly as good the people that make them think they are isn't really a surprise either.

    As for his acting, the proof lies in the tape - he's just awful with very limited range.

    A source close to the situation tells me that if he keeps up his bad mouthing of the major studios, even his Jewish heritage won't be able to land him another job in Hollywood. As another insider notes, it's probably time for him to grow up, but there are many people who don't think he will.

    Sigh he really should have kept his trap shut then followed Ben Affllek's advice in Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back...or was it Matt Damon? Anyway, keep doing the big budget blockbusters to enable you to do the gay serial killer on horseback movies in between...

    I really don't get the interest in him. He's not that big a star, nor is he that talented, IMHO. But I think he would benefit greatly from shutting his big yap.

    Yeah it's odd, he's been pushed as a big star and I'm not quire sure why? I thought he was ok in the first Transformers, but he's been annoying in everything else I've ever seen him in!
