Shia LaBeouf

Shia LaBeouf sustained an injury onset of his current movie, American Honey, E! News confirms.

"Shia LaBeouf sustained minimal injuries late last night on the set of his current film, AMERICAN HONEY," a rep for the star tells us. "As protocol, production sought out medical attention and Shia received stitches on his hand and for a laceration on his head.  He is due back on set tomorrow."

Sounds like he's doing OK!

Maybe he just went a little too hard when attempting whatever stunt he was working on. After his motivational speech, in which he violently told people to "just do it" went viral, we can only assume he gives all of his activities his best efforts.

"Don't let your dreams be dreams," he said in his video. "Yesterday you said tomorrow, so just do it. Make your dreams come true, just do it!"

If that isn't enough to get you to jump out of bed and conquer the world, LaBeouf added, "Some people dream success while you're gonna wake up and work hard at it. Nothing is impossible. You should get to the point where anyone else will quit and you're not going to stop there no what are you waiting for? Do it!"

The Even Stevens alum has followed his own dreams and has been keeping busy with various other pursuits besides acting. He most recently appeared in Sia's "Elastic Heart" music video and has participated in some metamodern performance art, one of which included listening to a live stream of his heartbeat.   

But if you aspire to LaBeouf's level of stardom, think again. Even he has some thoughts on the idea of "celebrity," comparing it to being "enslaved."

"The requirements to being a star/celebrity are namely, you must become an enslaved body. Just flesh—a commodity, and renounce all autonomous qualities in order to identify with the general law of obedience to the course of things. The star is a byproduct of the machine age, a relic of modernist ideals. It's outmoded."

You do you, Shia.
