Shia LaBeouf has been nothing if not honest over the past few years.
Following run-ins with the law, as well as candid interviews about directors he has previously worked with, the Even Stevens alum tells Variety that he has come a long way since his darkest days. Focused on reviving his career with quality projects, LaBeouf is preparing to release American Honey, a movie that is already earning LaBeouf some of the best reviews of his career.
The Transformers star has found a new outlook on life and his career, but that doesn't mean his honesty has disappeared. In Variety's newest issue, LaBeouf says seven shocking things about Steven Spielberg, Michael Bay and Hollywood in general:
1. The Steven Spielberg of today isn't the same director from earlier years: "I grew up with this idea, if you got to Spielberg, that's where it is," LaBeouf tells the magazine. "You get there, and you realize you're not meeting the Spielberg you dream of," LaBeouf says. "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--king company."
