Vampires, Transformers, singing high-schoolers: They can all be tough to outrun.
Vampires, Transformers, singing high-schoolers: They can all be tough to outrun. But at the 65th annual Cannes Film Festival, a number of young Hollywood stars are attempting to do just that.
"I'm taking risks more," says Mr. LaBeouf, who plays the youngest in a trio of Virginia bootleggers in "Lawless." "I was really risk-averse for a while because I had a big nugget to protect, not only for myself but for the people who were behind me. I think I've become less corporate."
Mr. LaBeouf says he's gratified to have been a part of the film from start to finish, rather than, he says, "just piggybacking" on the success of a massive blockbuster.
