Oliver Stone Gives Shia LaBeouf Much-Needed Direction
"So, Shia. When I told you to 'f**k off,' what I really meant was 'f**k off.'"
"We're in the Adirondacks, and Josh Brolin and I are shooting this bike scene, and at one point I say to Josh a line -- 'You should look at yourself in the mirror first and see yourself. It might scare you.' I looked at the line for a couple of months and thought I'd go to Oliver and say, 'You look at the mirror and look at yourself. It's sort of repetitive. Why don't we just cut one of those? Why don't I say, Look at yourself. It might scare you.' This is Oliver verbatim. He looks at me and goes, 'I like mirror. I wrote Scarface. Go fuck yourself.'"
