Shia LaBeouf Bulked Up For ‘Lawless’

Shia LaBeouf is already known as one of the HAWT guys in Hollywood just for his face. Now imagine Shia’s face and a body with 40 lbs of muscle? Try not the melt! Shia said he had to bulk up for his character in ‘Lawless.’

“I had to gain 40 pounds. That was probably the most physically arduous thing I’ve done, you know? I’ve never had that kind of weight on my chest before. It’s something to get used to.”

I guess so! But I hope they got plenty of topless scenes- you know, to commemorate all of Shia’s hard work- LOL. Shia said it was also hard to learn how to drive the vintage cars in the ‘Lawless.’

“It’s not like you’ve got a clutch and a throttle – it’s totally different; you’ve got pedals that you’ve never seen before. You look down at the floorboard – there are 12 pedals there. You think you’re flying a hover board. These old-school trucks were very difficult to drive.”

Harvey Weinstein, who’s studio was behind ‘Lawless,’ said he and two other famous guys are proud of Shia.

“Matt Damon and Ben Affleck and I gave birth to Shia. You’ve seen that John Ford movie, ’3 Godfathers’? That’s us. We did a TV series … that was called ‘Project Greenlight’. And one of the first movies that we made was on that show, and Shia was the actor. I am so, so proud of him, and so are his other two godfathers.”

Steven Spielberg might take exception to that, since he’s responsible for all of Shia’s major roles, from the ;ast ‘Indiana Jones’ movie to the ‘Transformers’ franchise, but regardless of who’s responsible, we’re all glad Shia’s in Hollywood!
