Shia LaBeouf
Shia LaBeouf has opened up about his recent stint in rehab, comparing the experience to method acting. The actor talked about it while at the Tribeca Film Festival screening of "Love True," which he produced.

Shia LaBeouf
Shia LaBeouf has been spotted out and about sporting a new look, and we certainly hope it's for his next movie role.

The 28-year-old is known to get deep into his roles through method acting, often taking his role preparation to the extreme. He actually had a tooth pulled and cut up his own face for Fury and even agreed to do unsimulated sex scenes for Lars Von Trier's Nymphomaniac (though the film never actually went that far), and now Shia has shaved the sides of his head, pierced his eyebrow and sports a braided rat-tail.

We're guessing the actor, who was spotted with his new look whil...

Shia LaBeouf wanted to look realistic in upcoming film "Fury," so he cut his face instead of using make-up. The actor shocked his co-stars when he used a real blade to slash his face because he was unhappy with the prosthetic gashes that the make-up artists created.

His co-star Logan Lerman told GQ magazine: "We were in make-up and they were putting cuts on Shia and I said, 'Yeah, yeah, it looks good.' And Shia was like, 'No, it doesn't look real.'
