Shia LaBeouf Would Cut His Face Every Time He Worked On Set To Have Realistic Wounds
Shia LaBeouf's experience of shooting the 2014 movie Fury was an extreme one, but he made it so himself. The movie is set during World War II and LaBeouf's character was Technician fifth grade Boyd "Bible" Swan, tank gunner.
For this role, the actor pulled his completely healthy tooth. He shared that it was actually hard to find a dentist who would do that. He also was constantly opening up slash wounds on his face with a knife, despite there being a crew of professionals who could recreate the same effect. What is more, he enlisted in the military and became a chaplain's assistant to Captain Yates for the 41st Infantry.
He was so into the character that he was sitting in the tank all the time, even though someone else could have been operating it as the driver was not seen from the outside. Shia LaBeouf also didn't shower and because of his behavior wasn't very liked by others, so he was accommodated separately from other members of cast and crew.
