Shia’s a Christian?!

"I became a Christian man." says Shia LaBeouf.

Is Shia LaBeouf a Christian? According to an interview with Elvis Mitchell of Interview magazine he is. LaBeouf has been a popular actor in such movies as Transformers and Disturbia, but if you have read the headlines in the last year, LaBeouf has made life for himself a little rough.

In his interview with Mitchell, LaBeouf talks about his new role in the movie war movie Fury in which he plays opposite of Brad Pitt.

Fury is the first time you've ever played a man of faith. His religion is what gets him through this, his devotion to his God,” asks Mitchell. LaBeouf’s response might surprise you not only with his answer, but in the way that he answers. He’s never been elegant with his words, but I believe that he is honest with them:

“I found God doing Fury. I became a Christian man, and not in a f___ing bull____ way—in a very real way. I could have just said the prayers that were on the page. But it was a real thing that really saved me. And you can't identify unless you're really going through it. It's a full-blown exchange of heart, a surrender of control. And while there's beauty to that, acting is all about control. So that was a wild thing to navigate. I had good people around me who helped me. Brad [Pitt] was really instrumental in guiding my head through this. Brad comes from a hyper-religious, very deeply Christian, Bible Belt life, and he rejected it and moved toward an unnamed spirituality. He looked at religion like the people's opium, almost like a Marxist view on religion. Whereas [Fury writer-director] David [Ayers] is a full subscriber to Christianity. But these two diametrically opposed positions both lead to the same spot, and I really looked up to both men.”

Mitchell's story is featured in the November issue of Interview.

Best Lines from “It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown”

I didn't know you were going to kill it.
Linus:"I didn't know you were going to kill it!"

[Writing to the Great Pumpkin] “You must get discouraged because more people believe in Santa Claus than in you. Well, let's face it; Santa Claus has had more publicity, but being #2, perhaps you try harder.”

Never jump into a pile of leaves with a wet sucker.
“Never jump into a pile of leaves with a wet sucker.”

“There are three things that I've learned never discuss with people: religion, politics, and the Great Pumpkin.”

 “I don't see how a pumpkin patch can be more sincere than this one. You can look around and there's not a sign of hypocrisy. Nothing but sincerity as far as the eye can see.”
