Shia LaBeouf

'Transformers' Felt Like

A 'Finger Up My Ass'

0815_tmz_shia_labeoufShia LaBeouf claims filming "Transformers" felt like having a "a finger up your ass" -- and now, the actor says he's quitting big budget movies for good.

26-year-old Shia spoke with The Hollywood Reporter recently, swearing off studio flicks for the rest of his life ... in favor of a career in indie films -- saying, "I'm done ... There's no room for being a visionary in the studio system. It literally cannot exist."

Shia said, "You give Terrence Malick a movie like 'Transformers', and he's f**ked. There's no way for him to exist in that world."

Shia then gushed about the people behind his new movie "Lawless" -- saying, "These dudes are a miracle ... They give you the money, and they trust you -- [unlike the studios, which] give you the money, then get on a plane and come to the set and stick a finger up your ass and chase you around for five months."

That stinks.

Without Transformers, the only thing we'd remember you for is Holes. now that, I'd rather have a finger in my ass than watch.

Another ungrateful P.O.S. Ten years from now he's going to be begging for parts even if it means a walk on.

So you want the money then want to do whatever you want in the movie? Did I get that right? I say whoever paid you gets to tell you what and how to do the movie.

Don't you just sick and tired of the complaining..boo-hoo...poor me...I am a ACTOR! I need to feel! I need to ACT! ACT GRATEFUL FOR WHAT YOU HAVE!!! If it wasn't for those big budget "pieces of crap" no one would know who you are, you wouldn't be able to pay your mortage, feed yourself, and pay for those awful close you wear on your back! The homeless look is old. If you don't like the movies, change them, do theatre, don't piss and complain. Ever hears of never biting the hand that feeds you? What will you do when Hollywood stops calling?
