LOS ANGELES - US actor Shia LaBeouf injured his head and hand during the filming of his latest “American Honey” movie, his agent told AFP Wednesday.

The 29-year-old star of the popular “Transformers” films was taken to hospital Tuesday night and received several stitches. “LaBeouf sustained minimal injuries late last night on the set of his current film,” his agent said.

“Production sought out medical attention and Shia received stitches on his hand and for a laceration on his head.” “American Honey,” about a teenage girl who gets caught up with a group of traveling misfits, is being filmed in North Dakota, and is directed by British filmmaker Andrea Arnold. LaBeouf also starred in 2008’s “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.”

The students were invited to send a piece of text to introduce their work and fill the green screen with whatever background they deemed appropriate, according to Dazed. LaBeouf’s impassioned speech for one film, produced by Central Saint Martins student Joshua Parker, involved him shouting at the camera: “Do it, Just do it! Don’t let your dreams be dreams. Yesterday, you said tomorrow. So just do it.

He has made headlines for his sometimes outlandish behavior, including appearing on the red carpet wearing a paper bag over his head marked with the words “I am not famous any more.” In separate clips, he also read excerpts from Charles Bukowski’s poem The Laughing Heart, recounted stories and played the parts of two people in one conversation, asking questions such as: “Do you think we could fall in love on the internet?” before spinning around on a stool and responding, “no … because it wouldn’t be love, it would just be porn.”

One particularly memorable clip saw LaBeouf repeatedly make “ooohmn” sounds while stood in front of a block of butter. LaBeouf worked with Turner and Rönkkö for his live installation, I am sorry. The project saw LaBeouf sat in a Los Angeles gallery with a paper bag over his head bearing the words “I Am Not Famous Anymore” across it, while members of the public queued up to interact with him.
