Shia LaBeouf put on the weirdest art show in Los Angeles today by silently confronting fans one by one, offering them a variety of odd objects, reports TMZ. A first person fan account: ‘I walk into the gallery.
A lady is standing behind a table with an assortment of different items apparently related to his life: whip [from ‘Indiana Jones’], a Transformer [from ‘Transformers’], Jack Daniels [he likes to drink?], bouquet of daisies, cologne, pink ukulele, etc. I pick the bottle of Jack and the lady escorts me to the next room separated by a curtain.
Shia is sitting down, paper bag on his head, hands firmly planted on the table. I introduce myself, offer him tacos. No response. I tell him I find the bag to be distracting and if he’d be willing to take it off. He obliges.
His eyes are red and puffy as if his cat just died. I tell him this all seems incredibly self-serving. No response. I ask him to share a swig of whiskey with me. No response. I ask him if any slimy characters have put their lips on the bottle, he breaks into a wide smile.
Then immediately his face returns to its regular stoic self. I tell him I think he’s a good actor who’s wildly misunderstood. I ask him if I can take a picture. No response. I say I’m a nice guy, please don’t punch me in the face. I take a picture. He doesn’t move. I thank him for his time and extend my hand, he shakes it. I leave.’
