Shia LaBeouf may “carry” Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps in the word of Michael Douglas, but Shia says he learned a lot from Michael.

OK! GALLERY: WALL STREET 2 PREMIERE — THE STARS NEVER SLEEP

Shia chatted with OK! at the NYC premiere of Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps about what advice Michael gave him on set.

“It was a lot of buck up you know. A lot of that,” the actor explained to OK!. “There’s points where Oliver can be intimidating. And Mike had gone through the worst Oliver that had ever existed right. I got a softer, sweeter, cuddlier Oliver, who in his maturations, his sensibilities have changed, he’s become a softer man. I think when Mike got him, he was the hardest, most dangerous director in film. I got a different Oliver.”

How did it feel working with Michael?

“Exhilarating. Incredible. Rewarding. Intimidating. Passionate. Phenomenal, just phenomenal,” Shia said. “A real treat.”

Shia also told reporters at the premiere that Michael “seems strong. He’s a handsome dude.”

Michael appeared at the premiere alongside wife Catherine Zeta-Jones, but did not do any press.

“Cancer picked the wrong guy when he picked Michael,” Shia said. “He’s too strong. He’s a really strong, strong individual. He’s the epitome of strength. He’s got a good support system. He’s a wolf.”
