In an email interview with Complex Magazine published on Tuesday, LaBeouf, 29, gave his answers in poetic form as he discussed Alma Har’el’s documentary LoveTrue.
LaBeouf served as executive producer on the film, which explores the various ways in which people understand the concept of “true love.” Asked if he had ever met the subjects of the documentary, the actor responded with this poem:
“we’re all cut from the same cloth
I’ve been watching them from afar
for a few years now
it’s been quite powerful
Both w/ distance
& to be in the presence of
These people are magical
And extraordinarily strong
Why is Shia Labeouf Livestreaming His Heartbeat?
As for whether LaBeouf’s understanding of love has evolved since the project started, he admits he doesn’t know too much about the four-letter word.
“My understanding of most things is pretty touch and go
But the three things
I know least about:
Love, art & God
I have a hunch they all mean the same thing
But again…. I’m just some actor guy
These things are best left
to people like Alma,” he said.
And while the star worked behind the camera this time, LaBeouf shares it may be his last foray into production work.
“That #TOUCHMYSOUL video you saw was made by FACT’s PR team
Not our collective
& though I think it’s beautiful
We were not involved creatively
This was a onetime thing I believe
I have no ambitions at all
to be a producer”
LoveTrue is out in limited release now.
