Has Shia Labeouf's Method Acting Gone Too Far?
Has Labeouf gone too far? Certainly there are people like Michael Fassbender, who starved himself for the film Hunger, whilst Labeouf also looks up to famed method actors like Robert Redford and Sean Penn. "There's a way to do an acid trip like Harold and Kumar, and there's a way to be on acid," LaBeouf, 26, recently told Usa Today "What I know of acting, Sean Penn actually strapped up to that (electric) chair in Dead Man Walking. These are the guys that I look up to." You do wonder at how far Labeouf will go, though, and the damage that he'll do to his body. Method acting is something to be lauded, for sure, respect must go to those willing to go so far to their art. But the danger is that he could just end up alienating everybody.
One thing he won't be doing will be revealing his genitals in Nymphomanica, with Von Trier using body doubles. It sounds about the only thing that we won't be seen of him over the next months.
