Shia Labeouf - Shia Labeouf: 'Marilyn Manson Is Like A Brother To Me'

Shia Labeouf has struck up a close friendship with Marilyn Manson after directing the shock rocker's latest music video.
The Transformers star is a longtime Manson fan and now counts him as one of his dearest pals after shooting the promo for his single, Born Villain.
LaBeouf tells Mtv.com, "I love Marilyn. Manson is like a brother to me now. He's a real sweet dude, a real close friend...
"Marilyn Manson to me is an indelible figure. He's a big deal to me, and in my childhood, I don't know of a scarier figure in art. He, in my teenage years, was the scariest thing in the world, so part of me has always been intrigued."
But the actor has warned his fans they may not be impressed by the adult promo, which features graphic imagery.
He adds, "There are fans of mine who aren't fans of Manson's and vice versa; that's why I think our collaboration is interesting. I don't really see it on paper. I don't see fans of mine who went to see Holes when they were 12 loving this. I don't think my audience is the only thing I should exercise my artistic muscle for. I don't necessarily always do things for the audience; this is one of those."
