Father Knows Best About Acid Trips According To Shia La Beouf

SAN DIEGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Actor Shia La Beouf trips out on acid in his new film Bobby, but he couldn’t have gotten psychedelic without guidance from his dad.

La Beouf says he’s never done LSD so he had to turn to Dad, who gladly described his own experiences with the drug.

Says La Beouf: “My dad used to pop a lot of acid when he was young. He was a big Timothy Leary fan and knows a lot about the effects of psychedelic drugs. So, Dad gave me some artistic guidance.”

The former Even Stevens star adds that in order to enhance his drugged out state in Bobby, he and fellow tripper actor Brian Geraghty had to create a 6-hour timeline of their characters’ drug experiences.

He adds, “We had to jot down how we were going to act every hour because the drug high varies at different points. We stuck to our timeline so Brian and I would look like we were on the same trip.”

Bobby opens Friday (Nov. 17) in Los Angeles and New York and goes nationwide on November 22.
