Shia LaBeouf punched a fan in the face on Feb. 19. but claims he really didn’t want to!
The actor, 29, spent 24 hours in an elevator at Oxford Union performing a real-life art piece where fans had the opportunity to chat with him in an enclosed space.
However, the Transformers star’s project took a violent turn after a fan nearly begged him to punch him in the face. “I’m a performance artist. Can you help me with completion of my next piece by punching me in the face?” the student asked.
“Oh man, you want me to punch you in the face?” LaBeouf replied. “I don’t want to punch you very hard!”
When the actor was still hesitant, the student replied with, "Do it. Don't be a p---y.”
The elevator doors closed, though the punch was audible on the Youtube livestream.
