Shia LaBeouf reportedly filmed himself while he was high on acid to prepare his acting role as a drug addict in the film "The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman." The actor revealed that he sent the footage to his co-star Evan Rachel Wood. 

LaBeouf says he filmed himself while he was high on drugs so he can view them when he was sober. This may be another one of LaBeouf's 'efforts' to better understand the troubled character he takes on. 

The 26-year-old "Transformers" actor told MTV: "I remember sending Evan tapes. I remember trying to conjure this (drug-addicted character) and sending tapes and Evan being like, 'Yeah, that's good, but that's not, but this is, but that ain't (sic).' Not like she's the expert on set. I'm just saying you reach out to friends, and you sort of gauge where you're at. So I was sending tapes around."

When asked whether he arrives on the set drunk, LeBeouf replied:  "Well, you root for it. You don't show up wasted. You don't show up completely tripping on acid. But you're rooting for something and you're pushing yourself toward it. Everyone's got their own way."

This is not the first time the actor filmed himself. While making a "Chelsea Handler" appearance on Aug. 30 last year, LaBeouf claimed that he had actually sent "Nymphomaniac" director Lars von Trier real-life sexual footage of him and his girlfriend in order to snag the role.

"I sent him videotapes of me and my girlfriend having sex and that's how I got the job. I don't know what it's gonna be until I get it out there. I know he's a very dangerous director, I know we're trying to do something different. It's not your typical film. It's about what it's about."

"The Nymphomaniac" is slated to be released this year. The film reportedly required LaBeouf to partake in real sex on screen, which has raised eyebrows. 

"The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman" premiered at the recent Sundance Film Festival at the Eccles Theatre in Utah. 

The movie stars Shia LaBeouf, Evan Rachel Wood, Mads Mikkelsen, Til Schweiger, Rupert Grint, James Buckley, Vincent D'Onofrio, Melissa Leo, Ion Caramitru, and John Hurt.
