Shia LaBeouf might be burning a very big bridge. The actor shunned all movies he made with the highly regarded director.”I grew up with this idea, if you got to Spielberg, that’s where it is,” LaBeouf told Variety. “I’m not talking about fame, and I’m not talking about money.”
LaBeouf says working with the famed director did not hold up to his expectation.”You get there, and you realize you’re not meeting the Spielberg you dream of. You’re meeting a different Spielberg, who is in a different stage in his career. He’s less a director than he is a f—— company.” He adds he didn’t like the Spielburg’s rigid filming approach. “Spielberg’s sets are very different. Everything has been so meticulously planned. You got to get this line out in 37 seconds. You do that for five years, you start to feel like not knowing what you’re doing for a living.”
Then during a performance art piece the actor sat down and recorded himself re-watching his movies and he left the theater during the showing of the Spielberg-produced second Transformers movie. Ouch! “I don’t like the movies that I made with Spielberg.The only movie that I liked that we made together was Transformers one.”
Shia admits he began drinking over his movie failures.
