Shia Labeouf dropped acid while working on "The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman," but it wasn't because he "wanted to be on drugs."
The film -- which debuted at the Sundance Film Festival -- tells the story of a young man (Labeouf) who heads to Romania after the death of his mother (Melissa Leo) and subsequently falls for a dangerous young woman (Evan Rachel Wood). During one sequence, Labeouf's character takes hallucinogenic drug, which is what prompted the star to try it himself.
"I'd never done acid before. I remember sending Evan tapes. I remember trying to conjure this and sending tapes. And Evan being like 'That's good, but that's not but, that is,'" Labeouf told MTV. "You reach out to friends and gauge where you're at. I was sending tapes around and I'd get 50 percents from people and that just starts creeping me out. I was getting really nervous toward the end. »
