As a budding actor, landing on a role in a movie made by Steven Spielberg was like a 'dream come true' for the talented actor Shia LaBeouf. But then he realised, dreams are not always pleasing as the actor now accepts he doesn't like the movies made with the iconic director Steven Spielberg.
"I grew up with this idea, if you got to Spielberg, that's where it is, I'm not talking about fame, and I'm not talking about money," said Shia.
But then, the experience of working together in movies with the iconic director did not live up to the expectations Shia had in mind.
"You get there, and you realize you're not meeting the Spielberg you dream of," LaBeouf told Variety. "You're meeting a different Spielberg, who is in a different stage in his career. He's less a director than he is a f------ company." He added.
Shia LaBeouf also says that he almost felt stifled on the sets by Spielberg's approach.
"Spielberg's sets are very different," he mentioned. "Everything has been so meticulously planned. You got to get this line out in 37 seconds. You do that for five years, you start to feel like not knowing what you're doing for a living," the actor added.
"I don't like the movies that I made with Spielberg, the only movie that I liked that we made together was Transformers one," concluded Shia.
