Screen Junkies’ Awkward Confrontation With Shia LaBeouf
Shia Labeouf has been known to do some weird things, but his new performance art exhibit may take the cake. So, Hal Rudnick from Screen Junkies got sent on assignment to chat with exhibit goers and ultimately bring us inside for an extremely awkward one-sided interview with the star himself.
The pop-up had people waiting in line up to 9 hours just to be in a oddly silent room with Shia for a few minutes. When Hal takes the camera into the exhibit called #iamsorry, things get even weirder. Shia is in the room with the now infamous “I am not famous anymore” bag on his head. When Hal takes it off- surprise!- it is actually Shia LaBeouf. While Hal pushes him to answer his question, the actor maintains his silence and unresponsiveness giving the wax museum a run for its money. Some fans even said he was crying when they went in. For some art aficionados, though, this may seem a bit of a copy of artist Marina Abramović’s 2010 MoMA exhibit The Artist Is Present in which she sat in silence for 700 hours.
