Why does this last week reading internet articles seem like seeing a bunch of gossip rag magazine titles near the grocery store checkout stand?
Then again, sometimes even those rags get the riches right.
Have never been much of a Shia LaBeouf fan, sort of believing he was overrated. The Transformer movies, let’s be honest, aren’t exactly actor range-stretching roles, but he surprised me in Peanut Butter Falcon. I liked what he did in that film. I tried (briefly) to get into Honeyboy but it wasn’t really my type of movie. Not saying that was a good or bad film, it just didn’t click with me. No harm, no foul there.
Alas, I’ve come across several recent articles citing some serious problems LaBeouf has had off screen leading to him allegedly being blacklisted in Hollywood. He was also fired from Olivia Wilde’s second movie, Don’t Worry Darling before much filming even began, for being difficult to work with — allegedly. Wilde reportedly has a “no asshole” policy on set.
But this stuff with stray dogs? WTH?!?
I suspect, rightly or not, that audiences are able to eventually forgive racism, violence and domestic abuse – but killing dogs for kicks is another matter altogether. As such, scooper Daniel Richtman is reporting that LaBeouf is now fully blacklisted in Hollywood. He’s been dropped from every part he was cast in, isn’t attached to any upcoming projects and won’t be considered for any further high profile roles. At least, not for a long, long time.Shia LaBeouf Is Reportedly Fully Blacklisted In Hollywood Now
Animal cruelty, seriously? Got to hope this is all BS and not true.
Then there’s Charlie Sheen, Mr. Tiger Blood himself. Apparently he’s
living in a van down by the river, er, he is/was/might be major league behind on child support and went to live with his parents for a time being.
At one point, when he moved out of the famed Mulholland Estates, Sheen, 55, moved in with his parents, the source says — Martin Sheen is 80, and Janet Sheen is 76. “Think how inglorious that is: he’s gone from the highest paid person on television to living in Malibu with his father and mother. He could be the oldest son in Malibu living with his parents!” says the insider.From Baller To Squalor: Charlie Sheen Moves Into Modest Malibu Apartment After He Was Forced To Live With Dad, 80, And Mom, 76
Like the title of that post, “From Baller to Squalor” — it just doesn’t make any sense for a guy that was once clearing millions from his TV gig. Clearly a sign that excess can destroy anyone.
Will we ever see Shia LeBeaouf or Charlie Sheen in any significant acting roles again? My guess is yes. They both are too talented to keep out of films, but it sounds like whomever takes a chance on a project involving them is going to be taking on some very high risk.
Are you interested in seeing new movies by either or both of these actors?
