Shia LaBeouf Talks Drinking On Set, Carey Mulligan, Manipulation And More In ‘GQ’
Shia LaBeouf did an interview with GQ for his new film Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps and he didn’t hold back a thing. He talked a little about hanging out with the “sex-drugs-and-rock-n-roll” Wall Street crowed that humbled his views on what he thought was his own wild life and says he trades all day now in his boxers while using his online Schwab Active Trading account. But let’s get to the good stuff about working with Oliver Stone, Michael Douglas, whose son was arrested for trafficking cocaine and crystal meth, his girlfriend, and that infamous car crash.
Oliver Stone: “One of the first things you do with Oliver is you start talking about your personal life. You give it all to him at the beginning, and then he has these strings with which he can fuck with you. He regurgitates this stuff at inopportune moments. He will just come up and whisper a phrase in your ear, sing a song, mention something about your dad, and–pow!–it puts you in a different world.”
If that didn’t work then hitting a bar could be just as affective.
“We’d be on the street, and Oliver would just say, ‘Go to that bar, get fucked-up, and come back.’ I’d walk over, get smashed, and go back to work.'”
Michael Douglas: “Michael Douglas was an open wound on the set. That dude is in pain.”
Stone and Douglas: “They fucking go at it like rams, all day long, every day. They know that they feed off each other in a way that they don’t get with anybody else, but they hated each other.”
More from Shia LaBeouf after the jump.
His Car Crash: “I’d be watching the news, and they’d play my car crash,
and every once in a while Kim Kardashian’s sister would jump on TV and
preach to me from the red carpet about how to live my fucking life. And
I’m so upset, man. I’m so angry. Because this accident was not caused by
me. I got hit. I had a green. This fucker ran a red light. And he
flipped my truck, and he shoveled it on my hand. And my fingers are in
the street… they’re off, they’re under the truck door, man. This is
fake, dude (his hand is reconstructed) This is hip bone and the skin
that was left over…”
Carey Mulligan: “I never really had anything in my life that was
off-limits,” he says. Clearly. “But with this, just out of respect, I
just don’t want to fuck around. She’s an unbelievably thought-provoking
actress, the most talented actress I’ve ever met in my life, by leaps
and bounds. Neither one of us are fame whores. It works out. It’s not
like we’re the premiere couple; we’re not the red-carpet king and
We respect you holding back, because boy did you share! I can’t
believe how many f-bombs little Louis Stevens uses…Love his Wall
Street spread for the magazine.
