After taking part in a three-day, 24-hour-a-day screening of all his films in NYC, Shia LaBeouf sat down for an interview about the project, called #AllMyMovies.
During the interview, the actor admitted that he was worried that fellow audience members might throw popcorn at him or “light [his] hair on fire,” but… things went fine.
“All I want to do is be liked,” LaBeouf said. “You just don’t want anyone to hate you. I walked out loving myself. Not in some grandiose, ‘You’re f*cking awesome way,’ but in like, ‘You’re a part of a community. You’re part of this human thing. You’re in this human thing.’ ”
LaBoeuf said he felt lonely and “exiled from life” as a celebrity before the project, struggling to belong. #ALLMYMOVIES, however, helped him get over these feelings.
“The Even Stevens Movie (2003) was interesting. It’s all of our childhood. It’s mine and it’s yours. It wasn’t just me smiling like that,” said LaBoeuf. “If you look at the freeze frames, everyone is smiling like ‘Wow, I remember Beans. I remember that stupid-ass song.’ We were all looking at our yearbook together and we’re all in the yearbook.”
By the end of the three days, LaBeouf said he felt like he was simply hanging out watching movies with his friends.
