    Default Shia LaBeouf Says Celebrities Are 'Enslaved'

    Shia LaBeouf has offered a glimpse into his mind – particularly his views on art, acting and being a celebrity.
    In an interview over email withVariety, LaBeouf writes, "The craft of acting for film is terribly exclusive and comes with the baggage of celebrity, which robs you of your individuality and separates you."
    The Fury star, 28, says that performance art "is democratized and far more inclusive. As a celebrity/star I am not an individual – I am a spectacular representation of a living human being, the opposite of an individual. The enemy of the individual, in myself as well as in others."

    "The requirements to being a star/celebrity are namely, you must become an enslaved body. Just flesh – a commodity, and renounce all autonomous qualities in order to identify with the general law of obedience to the course of things. The star is a byproduct of the machine age, a relic of modernist ideals. It's outmoded," he writes.
    LaBeouf also discussed an experimental film, LoveTrue by Alma Har'el, which he executive-produced, that will be shown at the Tribeca Film Festival as a work in progress. They also worked together on a Sigur Rós music video, a partnership he described as therapeutic.

    "The experience of working with [Har'el] was unlike anything I have known. She is less a documentarian than she is a therapist, working with her subjects, using psychodrama as a platform for healing and insight." he says.
    LaBeouf raised eyebrows last year with a performance art piece where he claimed he was raped, and his interruption of a performance of the Broadway show, Caberet. He later admitted to alcohol abuse and said he went through an "existential crisis."

    I sort of get what he says about being a celebrity. " As a celebrity/star I am not an individual – I am a spectacular representation of a living human being, the opposite of an individual"
    He is a douche, but he is right about that. Celebrities are artificially enhanced human adverts.
    On the other hand, him being a star...

    I do feel bad for him because he had absolutely no choice in becoming an actor and entering the industry. He's also tried really hard since his Even Stevens days to remove himself from the mainstream media, and he never draws attention to himself. It's not like he was the face of a franchise, or courted publicity with stupid red carpet stunts. Poor Shia.

    Shia, you're right. You are enslaved... By meth. Go to treatment!

    He needs medical intervention, or something.

    He was really good in those music videos with the scary little girl dancer, though.

    Gimme a break. Enslaved? Shia LeBeouf can walk away from show business any time he wants. Let him get a real job and support his drug habit working at McDonald's or a gas station or Walmart.

    I have a soft spot for him. I laughed like crazy when he was on Kimmel describing the night he got arrested.
    He totally owned it. I do think he needs help though.

    My beloved daughter introduced me to this masterpiece, centered on machine-age celebrity Shia LeBeouf (the best part is at the 2:57 mark):
