What in the world!?
In the December issue of DAZED
, actor Shia LaBeouf sat down for an "interview" with writer Aimee Cliff and it was pretty strange to say the least.
Aimee revealed that she had been in constant email contact with Shia, discussing his recent work, his "I Am Sorry" exhibit in LA, and other things. When Shia suggested a sit-down interview, Aimee jumped at the chance.
However, prior to meeting, Shia suggested they not speak during the "interview."
So they didn't.
They went on to finally meet in a London hotel, and with Go-Pros strapped on top of their heads, the "interview" commenced. Aimee also revealed in her article, that during their email conversations, Shia revealed he had been raped during his exhibit. The incident occurred during a meet with woman. The exhibit saw Shia meet with fans for 5 days, but there was also no talking.
Aimee's excerpt from the email:
One woman who came with her boyfriend, who was outside the door when this happened, whipped my legs for ten minutes and then stripped my clothing and proceeded to rape me…There were hundreds of people in line when she walked out with disheveled hair and smudged lipstick. It was no good, not just for me but her man as well. On top of that my girl was in line to see me, because it was Valentine’s Day and I was living in the gallery for the duration of the event – we were separated for five days, no communication. So it really hurt her as well, as I guess the news of it traveled through the line. When she came in she asked for an explanation, and I couldn’t speak, so we both sat with this unexplained trauma silently. It was painful.
