During an interview with MTV at Sundance, Shia LeBeouf sat with his Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman co-star Evan Rachel Wood and talked about how he prepared for his role as a young American man who travels to Romania because the spirit of his recently deceased mother tells him to. In the sit-down, LeBeouf praises Evan’s acting and talks about the time he dropped acid in real-life so he’d know how to act it out in the film.
“There’s a technique that Evan has that I don’t know yet. When I was 10 and she was 10 I was in [inaudible] pie fights. When I was 13 she was in Thirteen. I’ve always looked up to Evan,” he told a reporter in Park City, UT.
