Shia Labeouf Suffers for "Transformers" Movie

by | November 4, 2006 | Comments

Shia LaBeouf, who plays a teen involved with giant robots in the upcoming "Transformers" movie, told Rotten Tomatoes that it wasn’t all fun and games making the Michael Bay epic.

"It was like war," he said. "I’ve never been in that much pain in my life, emotionally, physically. It was just a hard movie to make," he said.

When press visited the "Transformers" set in August, Labeouf was all smiles and excitement about performing stunts for Bay. "Shows you what people turn on for press, huh?"

Labeouf still hasn’t seen any of his scenes with the transformers added in, but he has confidence that all his suffering will pay off. "And I think it’s going to be good. Who knows? I’m not involved like that. It’s not a ‘come visit the editing room’ kind of relationship. I know that what we’ve shot, I’ve seen dailies, looks nuts but I don’t know how the assemblage is going to be."

"Transformers" opens July 4, 2007.
