The Internet laughed, cried and reflected with Shia LaBeouf on Friday as he relived the 2003 made-for-TV masterpiece The Even Stevens Movie. Now, in a new interview, LaBeouf confirms that joy was indeed experienced during the screening.
LaBeouf gave an interview to NewHive, which hosted the actor’s three-day live stream — part of his #AllMyMovies project, in which he screened his entire filmography in reverse chronological order — and revealed how he really felt re-entering the mind of Louis Stevens.
“The Even Stevens Movie was interesting,” he said. “It’s all of our childhood. It’s mine and it’s yours. It wasn’t just me smiling like that. If you look at the freeze frames, everyone is smiling like wow, I remember Beans. I remember that stupid-ass song. We were all looking at our yearbook together and we’re all in the yearbook. It felt like family, we were sitting there like a high school class.”
