Thanks to this new interview with Logan Lerman describing the lengths Shia LaBeouf went to for Fury, Brad Pitt’s “best actor I’ve seen” comments make a lot more sense. I don’t know if Pitt meant “best actor I’ve seen” so much as “Oh, Shia LaBeouf? Yeah, that motherf*cker’s crazy.” According to Lerman, Shia cut his own face and had a tooth removed for Fury. You know, standard actor stuff.
“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’,” he said.
