The tension. The sweat. The combined gaseous emissions of hundreds of men. During the filming of Wall Street 2, actor Shia LaBeouf succumbed to Wall Street’s homoerotic allure. “I thought my life was pretty wild,” he tells GQ. “I land in New York, secretly thinking I’m like the coolest guy in the world. But then I met these guys, and it’s humbling. It’s the most sex-drugs-and-rock-’n’-roll atmosphere that exists on the planet. I was hanging out with some wild human beings.”
In addition to being totally fun to hang out with, Shia found, these guys are good people.
“It’s easy to villainize these guys with the big paychecks,” he says. “But they’re not all bad. I’m a pretty left-wing character, and I come from whatever collar is lower than blue. But meeting these guys really opened my mind a lot. I’ve never seen people with more drive and determination in my life.”
Look out, Carey Mulligan. We’d bet that when this thing finally premieres, Shia’s going to show up with a different ingenue on his arm. Probably Jamie Dimon.
