Shia Labeouf Blasts Steven Spielberg's Filmmaking Process

    Actor Shia Labeouf has spoken up to say he's no fan of acclaimed director Steven Spielberg's filmmaking process. In a new interview with Variety, the 30-year-old, who starred in Spielberg's Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, told his story of the adage that you shouldn't meet your heroes.
    "You get there, and you realize you're not meeting the Spielberg you dream of," he said. "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***ing company."
    [​IMG]Labeouf went on to say the movie sets that Spielberg creates a "very different"--and not in a good way. Instead, Spielberg sets can hamper an actor's ability to stay true to their artistic integrity, he said.
    "Everything has been so meticulously planned. You got to get this line out in 37 seconds. You do that for five years, you start to feel like not knowing what you're doing for a living," he said.
    Labeouf worked with Spielberg not only on Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, but in various capacities for Disturbia, Transformers, and Eagle Eye.
    With the exception of Transformers, which Spielberg produced, Labeouf said he doesn't enjoy any of the movies he made with the award-winning director. During Labeouf's #ALLMYMOVIES art project, which saw the actor watch all of his movies, he left the theater during Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, which Spielberg produced.
    Additionally, Labeouf said Spielberg told him not to read press about himself--whether it was good or bad. Labeouf didn't take this advice, saying, "There's no way to not do that" in modern society.
    Spielberg declined to comment on all of this when approached by Variety.
    In other news about Labeouf, we recently learned that he stole Pokemon video games as a kid and could have starred in Suicide Squad.
