Determined to be the Daniel Day-Lewis of roles where you get to do really fun things, Shia LaBeouf has revealed that, in addition to bravely having actual sex with attractive actresses in Lars Von Trier's upcoming Nymphomaniac, he also actually drank moonshine on the set of Lawless, and he actually dropped LSD for the recently completed The Necessary Death Of Charlie Countryman. "There's a way to do an acid trip like Harold & Kumar, and there's a way to be on acid," LaBeouf tells USA Today of this last scene, in which he discovered that taking acid is a really great way to be on acid. Of course, it's not such a great way to be an actor, as he admits, "Sometimes, it does get real. Too real for a (director) who's trying to keep a diplomatic set." But such is the price of The LaBeouf Method to acting, and also taking drugs and having sex. For art.
