Shia LaBeouf sustains massive head injury on movie set

shia_labeoufWhile in North Dakota filming the new movie American Honey early this morning, Shia LaBeouf sustained a massive head injury and had to be rushed to hospital.

The movie, which is about a teenage girl who gets entangled with a group of hard partying misfits, called for Shia to put his head through a glass window.

The stunt went wrong and he wound up needing 20 stitches and 13 staples in his head, as well as stitches in his hand.

TMZ broke the story this afternoon, but by that time Shia had already been bandaged up and left the hospital. He was ordered to rest the remainder of the day but is scheduled to be back on set tomorrow morning.

This isn’t the first time Shia has cut his head on a movie set. While filming the movie Fury with Brad Pitt and Logan Lerman, he didn’t feel the makeup crew had added enough fake cuts to his face so he took out a knife and cut his face for real.

He also had a dentist remove one of his permanent teeth. ~Alexandra Heilbron

    “took out a knife and cut his face for real.” he is not a stable person…

    What tests were done? Not good that he is going back to work after a traumatic head injury way too soon. I hope he is allright, it’s just a bit of money, or reschedule the shoot.

    As a paramedic, let me tell you what you described here most certainly are NOT “massive head injuries”.
    Once again, journalistic integrity suffers for a catchy headline.

    Hey!! I’ve heard of “method acting” but this is just a little too much, even for a certified nut-bar like La Beouf ! Talk about getting into the character of the part. Stitches & staples, sounds like a Country & Western song. Then again, if my employer was willing to pay me the insane wages most actors receive (it’s in the millions), I’d take a few stitches for the team. Whadaya got to lose…………………………..besides your life!……….’nuff said!

    Certifiable idiotlike behavious, what? Not getting enough attention?

    That’s not a massive head injury at all. If it were, he’d still be in the hospital having a CAT Scan and an MRi as well as other tests to see if his brain’s functioning properly. Motor Skills and cognitive tests and such…

    Massive Head injury?!?! He got cut and needed 20 stiches and 13 staples. Massive head injuries involve fractures and worse! Deceiving headline.

    Hopefully it knocked some sense into him…Too soon? The headline is a bit deceptive, massive head injuries are generally far worse than described in this article. That he walked out of the hospital the same day would imply a very minor if not just a head injury.

    I’ve never been much of a fan, and not that I know him, but on screen and off, he’s always seemed a bit of a wanker (that’s a polite way of saying ‘douche’). Way too full of himself.
