Shia Labeouf Gets Hurt on the Set of ‘American Honey’

Shia Labeouf had a spot of bad luck when he was out filming in North Dakota. According to the Guardian, he was performing a stunt that was supposed to be shot with him going through a plate glass window. The stunt went terribly wrong for some reason and Shia was sent to the hospital to get twenty stitches and 13 staples. He was expected to get back on set soon.

LaBeouf is currently filming the film ‘American Honey’ in North Dakota. The movie ‘American Honey’ is written and directed by Andrea Arnold, an English filmmaker, who is making her American debut with this film. The picture tells the story of a teenager who gets into trouble while traveling around the midwest with a magazine sales crew. It doesn’t seem like the sort of movie that would get Shia Labeouf in trouble stuntwise. One hopes that the actor will be more careful in future. Shia LaBeouf is known for taking his job real seriously and doing every stunt for himself, so the fact that he performed the breaking window stunt himself comes as no surprise. He has done bigger stunts and this was by no means his stunt as an actor.


The injuries were described as minimal and a fast recovery is expected. The production company told the news agency that the actor was expected to be back at work soon.

Shia Labeouf has been doing many low profile movies recently, but most of them stand out as being exceptionally good at showcasing his talent. Shia Labeouf has also been in the news for the bizzarre incident when he was seen asking for a homeless man’s hat. He has also been in the news for making a hilarious TED Talk type video for YouTube. While he has been very active in making news off screen, fans are still waiting for his next movie, Man Down, which is a post apocalyptic drama.
