Actor Shia LaBeouf was sent to a hospital Wednesday following a bloody on-set injury while filming his upcoming movie "American Honey." Source told TMZ that the former "Transformers" actor was shooting a scene that called for the actor to put his head through a glass window, but the stunt went bad and LaBeouf cut himself.
He was taken to a nearby hospital to treat cuts to the left side of his face and his right index finger. LaBeouf was bandaged up and sent home -- having received 20 stiches and 13 staples to his head and fingers.
The actor’s representatives also told TMZ that the actor suffered minimal injuries and is expected to return to work soon. "Shia LaBeouf sustained minimal injuries late last night on the set of his current film, 'American Honey.' As protocol, production sought out medical attention and Shia received stitches on his hand and for a laceration on his head. He is due back on set [Thursday]."
LaBeouf has been keeping himself busy with various pursuits besides acting, E! News reported. He recently appeared in Sia’s "Electric Heart" music video, and in a work of "metamodern" performance art. Earlier this month, the actor took part in a video project dubbed "#Introductions" with a group of London fine-arts students. A 30-minute clip shows the actor giving an intense motivational speech, which had LaBeouf periodically screaming at the top of his lungs “Just do it.”
He also imparted inspirational messages during his speech, such as, "Don't let your dreams be dreams. Yesterday you said tomorrow, so just do it. Make your dreams come true, just do it!"
Since then, the video has gone viral, being remixed and re-edited in various formats by creative fans. The most adorable version is a spoof starring a 3-year-old, as the Huffington Post reported. YouTube user Tingman filmed his 3-year-old daughter Olor delivering the "Just do it" speech.
LaBeouf plays the lead role in Andrea Arnold’s coming-of-age epic "American Honey."
