Transformers star Shia LaBeouf has sparked concern among his friends and colleagues after a series of bizarre antics on the set of his latest blockbuster.
That the 27-year-old actor, who has been in the UK filming the £50 million Second World War drama Fury, faced harsh criticism from fellow cast members including Brad Pitt and British actor Jason Isaacs – and even found himself shifting between three hotels in the Oxfordshire area where the action was filmed.
‘Shia was warned about his behavior by several people on set, including Brad Pitt and director David Ayer,’ a source reveals.
‘He didn’t heed any of their warnings and found himself staying in a small bed-and-breakfast hotel away from the rest of the cast.’
It seems that LaBeouf, pictured left, who plays an American soldier in Fury, was determined to adopt the method-acting approach for his new role.
‘He pulled out his own tooth during the first few weeks of filming and then refused to shower for weeks on end so he could better understand how his character would have felt living in the trenches.’
