After having an amazing audition (you can watch here), LaBeouf was working with Baldwin for three weeks in early 2013 for the Broadway play Orphans.

This led to LaBeouf actually following Baldwin home for a month after he left the production. “I was trying to take my mind off the play, but I couldn’t do it,” LaBeouf said. “So I would follow him from rehearsal to his home. I needed to have closure.”

Shia LaBeouf also revealed that while he was filming the 2013 Charlie Countryman he took LSD. This caused Fredrik Bond to quit the production.

“He wanted to break for lunch while I was tripping on drugs. I was like, ‘We can’t break for lunch, I’m on f—ing drugs,’ ” LaBeouf explained. “Right after that acid trip, I was choking [Bond] — my trainer had to pull me off him.” LaBeouf said that he felt the need to do drugs during the shoot because of a”lack of control caused by irrational commitment.”

LaBeouf seems to blame a lot of recent outbursts on Oliver Stone. After working with the award winning director on 2010’s Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, LaBeouf argues that Stone was a “manipulator” who made him “feel so stupid”.

“I think he felt that I was an imbecile and talked down to me the whole time, so that I looked up to him like a scholar.”

LaBeouf also explained he borrowed from Daniel Clowes’ comic for a short film, because “a fear of my own ideas.”
