Shia LaBeouf Removes his Front Tooth and Cuts his face in order to make the ‘Fury’ movie more realistic.

When you think of method acting the first person that should come to mind is Shia LaBeouf. He has demonstrated that he will go above and beyond in order to put himself into character. In the latest movie, Fury, Shia LaBeouf scarred himself and removed a tooth in order to get into character. In an interview with Logan Lerman, Lerman told the British edition of GQ that LaBeouf repeatedly cut his own face with a knife in order to make her war wounds look fully authentic. “We were in make-up and they were putting cuts on Shia and I said, ‘Yeah, yeah, it looks good.’ And Shia was like, ‘No, it doesn’t look real’,” he said. “Then he walks out into the hallway and says, ‘Hey man, wanna see something fun? Check this out…’ and he takes out a knife and cuts his face. And for the whole movie he kept opening these cuts on his face. That’s all real.” Not only did he cut his face, he had his dentist remove one of his front teeth for the role.

In addition to the facial cuts, the 28-year-old LaBeouf had his dentist remove one of his front teeth for the role of World War II tank crew-member Boyd ‘Bible’ Swan. The actor snapped a toothless pic of himself, and later posted it to fans on his Twitter page. [Yahoo]
