For those who've dreamed of a day when Shia LaBeouf would just keep his mouth shut, your wish has been granted ... sort of.
LaBeouf recently sat down with Dazed and Confused magazine, but insisted that the interview be wordless.
"I like the idea that we meet in person with a Go Pro photographic record but no interview," the actor wrote to interviewer Aimee Cliff in an email, according to CNN. "We just look into each others eyes for an hour, connect on a soul level and film that as the interview and keep the words online so we will both have Go Pro cameras strapped to our heads for the full hour and the footage will be presented raw as a split screen and you can use it on the Dazed video site."
And so ... they did (with the exception of a few awkward giggles). For an hour. Check out the video, which LaBeouf tweeted Thursday, below.
That way, LaBeouf reportedly explained, he would be "present in the magazine only in words obtained digitally and online I'm present only through a mute physical presence. ... The reality of my self lies somewhere between and beyond the two."
According to Cliff's report, LaBeouf also claims he was raped during his #IAmSorry art installation earlier this year, for which he invited visitors to come sit with him one-on-one in a small room. "One woman ... whipped my legs for 10 minutes and then striped (sic) my clothing and proceeded to rape me then walked out with her lipstick smudged to her awaiting boyfriend who I imagine was quite hurt by it," he allegedly told Cliff.
The "silent interview" is just the latest in a sequence of bizarre actions from LaBeouf over the past year. In June, he wasarrested after causing a disturbance during a performance ofCabaret on Broadway. He subsequently said he would seek treatment for alcohol addiction. In the past year, he also appeared at a red carpet with a paper bag on his head,plagiarized a short film, and announced he was retiring from public life.
