In Italian households we have 2 things 1. An infinite supply of olive oil 2. A picture of padre pio They might as well serve spaghetti at every theater for this


Arglefarb

The patron saint of infinite olive oil…


preparetodobattle

Irish Catholics are mad for a bit of the Padre as well.


aquarianfantasy

My Mexican Catholic mom and her Mexican Catholic mom friends also love padre pio


ChunteringBadger

Padre Pio, St.Teresa of Ávila, all the St. Catherines…if there’s a Catholic mystic out there, they’ll be staring mournfully at you from the wall while you eat in a Mexican household.


aquarianfantasy

Lmfao true. My childhood


erich0779

Used to always wonder why Obi Wan was in everyone's sitting room.


Michael_McGovern

Lots of old ladies have stickers of him on their cars.


Sylvio_

3. Wooden Spoon


tuco91

… to smack you if you dare to dip bread in the sauce before food is ready


boredguyonline

That’s stereotypical, those spoons are bludgeons


bennedictst

I would support that plan. I'm tired of asking every movie theater about their spaghetti policy


HighlanderAbruzzese

Not to mention almost every trucker in Italy has Padre Pio plastered to the front of their rigs. 😂


Eymerich_

That the most widespread (and sometimes the only) safety measure of Italian truckers.


RoachIsCrying

In Malta it is pretty common as well... most old households have Padre Pio paintings or statues


pauljeremiah

In Ireland every house has the same two photos on the wall 1. The Pope, usually Pope John Paul II 2. A picture of one of the Kennedy’s, my mom has a picture of George Kennedy hanging on the wall.


bntplvrd

Not from "Cool hand Luke" I hope.


pauljeremiah

It’s a pic from Airport 75


deckard1980

Whichever movie its from you can bet he's good and sweaty


imakefilms

it's worth mentioning you're only gonna see them in elderly homes or maybe in some countryside homes.


winoforever_slurp_

My wife’s Maltese uncle had a life-sized statue of Padre Pio in his lounge room. It was very disconcerting.


Tempest_1

Do you have something to test the purity of said olive oil?


PenWise9274

Check your local theatre on their spaghetti policy first


makuniverse

Dude is starting to look like Russell Crowe


QLE814

How long before they start competing for roles?


Pandeism

They won't Crowe is aging into the Elder God roles.


Morningfluid

Crowe won't have to do much competing, as a majority of Hollywood/Streaming Services have blacklisted Shia over the domestic abuse and animal abuse allegations.


teiichikou

After this I was 'googling' a bit and while there are serious allegations I couldn't stop but laugh at this >I became a Christian man \[...\] Brad \[Pitt\] was really instrumental in guiding my head through this.". LaBeouf met English actress Mia Goth while filming Nymphomaniac in 2012. On October 10, 2016, LaBeouf and Goth appeared to have gotten married in a Las Vegas ceremony officiated by an Elvis impersonator. Aaah, the famous celebration of marriage in.. Vegas... with an Elvis impersonator....


SoulCruizer

It’s a fairly common thing and not strange at all. Like all of it, Vegas, Elvis. It’s legit a thing.


hobbitsrpeople2

Yep, what he did to FKA Twigs is so fucked up. He has serious, serious problems.


gla_ddos

Well Crowe is even more abusive... Theres literal footage of him fighting 'round the world.


BallisticBurrito

Yeah but Crowe is cool and a fun time. While Shia is just... unhinged.


gla_ddos

Yeah but did Shia assault a dying cancer patient???? I dont think so!


BallisticBurrito

I wouldn't put it past him.


gla_ddos

Fair enough

Imagining Shia saying This is Sparta! with his weird quirky mannerisms and fast speech pacing


Preacherjonson

I was going to comment this. It's weird having watched him grow from a weedy pubescent to an average looking young adult and now a gruff bloke. I still see Even Stevens whenever I think about him.

Actual Cardinal Shia Lebeouf???

He was never ordained, Shia SURPRISE. He’s got god in his heart And love in his eyes.

Using acid on his hand, Shia Lebouf. Faking stigmatae, Shia Lebouf. Becoming a Saint, wait that was actually Padre Pio


Rufus2fist

The combo of these two working together has me very intrigued, could be brilliant could be a disaster.


mykneehurtsss

Sometimes maybe good sometimes maybe shit. Hell Shia could play Gattuso in a movie


damp_goat

Shia always lives up to and then exceeds my expectations. He's one of my all time favorite actors

ROMVLVSCAESARXXI

Shia may be guilty of a lot of things……….. Phoning a performance in, sure as hell, **AINT** one of them


sabersquirl

I saw the 2007 Transformers movie for its 15th anniversary, and while I remember those movies bring absolute cheesy garbage, I was very surprised by how genuine Shia was in that movie.


_wetsock

I forgot how gold the chemistry was between him and his parents really felt like the movie held up comedy and fight scene wise. The army guys were cornballs tho.


[deleted]

[удалено]


ToeFondler

Yeah that scene was made for the 12 year old boys coming to see it.


Optimus_Prime_Day

The first one was good. Second was crap, third was passable, the next 3 were made from pure dog shit.


JohnJoanCusack

Bumblee was great! other two of the last 3 are shit though


lawschoolredux

The 1st one is truly such a great summer blockbuster. Big, colorful, fun, sunny and bright. Truly a nostalgic piece of its time and an awesome crowd experience. You are right on the money with your description of #2 and #3 as well. lol I'm pretty sure the Avengers (and all the MCU big battle finales) drew from this film.


JRPGNATION

I think he amazing actor. I never watch something of him that made me hate it.


CooperFlannigan

My thoughts exactly. I honestly think he's one of the greatest living actors. Sucks he's out of his mind.


BoardClean

Shia is such an amazing talent when all the pieces are there. His performance in fury blew me away.


AkuVader

Peanut Butter Falcon was great


DopeyDeathMetal

I rewatched Honey Boy recently and was blown away again by not just his performance but the child as well. Top notch acting.


burrito_poots

Honey Boy is Oscar worthy from so many performances in it. I hate how much I dislike him as a person vs how much I enjoy his acting. Really bums me out because I truly think he’s one of the best actors of all time. His performance in Honey Boy is so incredibly emotional. I love almost all of his work. Tru Confessions was a banger.


devlindeboree

It was so much better than I had any hope that it would be, and it was largely due to Shia's performance.


RumpleDumple

Check out "American Honey“ for more dirtbag Shia


dinkytoy80

He was also good in Pieces of a woman but Vanessa Kirby stole the show. The first 30 minutes, holy shit!


royfripple

Not sure how it'll be taken here, but his performance in Tru Confessions (a Disney Channel movie from 2002) has always left me very impressed.


changdarkelf

Holy shit you just unlocked a core memory. Didn’t he play a special needs boy?


royfripple

Hahaha, yep!


Judiebruv

I used to really like Shia but after it came out how he horribly he abused FKA Twigs when they dated, can’t really support his work anymore…


Shadowmoth

Is this the one where he shoots a stray dog?


Geroditus

Wait, Padre Pio is that Obi-Wan lookin dude, right? Literally the only thing I know about him.


1HorseVs40Gophers

Yes, but this is actually a Mamma Mia spinoff film designed to appeal to male audiences.


FairyDustSpectacular

Hahaha, almost all our male saints look like him ;)


88_M_88

Correct only backwards. Obi-Wan was made to look like typical image of saint on purpose.


wisconsinking

Why him? I thought his carrer ended after those assault allegations.


sjfiuauqadfj

he is repenting for his sins. did you not look at these images?


BedWetter420

Holy fuck this is just on the nose enough for Shia to actually be intentional

QLE814

And before, as those familiar with the popular culture of 19th-century America can testify to....


goodusernamegood

He's had to apologize and blame substance abuse multiple times, he keeps repeating his actions. He's an abusive, dog-shooting piece of shit who shouldn't be cast in any movie.


Sonny_Crockett_1984

>dog-shooting piece of shit I'm not sure I want to know the answer but, huh?


goodusernamegood

It's exactly what it sounds like. He shot stray dogs to "prepare for a role."


ILoveRegenHealth

Oh, that's nice. Just apologize and everything is okay? https://www.rollingstone.com/culture/culture-news/shia-laboeuf-fka-twigs-sia-assault-allegations-what-we-know-1103717/ Good thing the trials are moving forward anyways. When Sia the singer even comes forward and says Shia did those things (she doesn't need to further her career when she's on top already), you know Shia fucked up.


radicalelation

He always reminded me of just about every narcissistic cokehead I've met. My opinion is unchanged.


codefame

Substances can turn you into a dick. But more than likely they just amplify what was already there.


facial_issues

It's ridiculous. In my opinion there are certain wrongs that have no paths to redemption, regardless of whether the perpetrator is a victim of their environment or something - and abuse is one of them.


JackTickleson

Abel Ferrara doesn’t care about controversy


karmagod13000

i would say that he likes it very much


Sonny_Crockett_1984

He will always be famous to a certain generation and that means he will always get opportunities to act. He's a low-budget "star" now. It's unlikely that the big studios will ever cast him as a lead again.


codefame

Beyond ready for this guy to stop being in the limelight.


DenverITGuy

Same. Reddit loves him because he was a meme for so long.


m_gartsman

Judging from this comment section, I think that blanket sentiment has changed.


Snorrigan

His career ends when people don't want to work with him anymore, that's not yet the case


AranasLatrain

Ha, I just watch the Unsolved Mysteries episode about him. Definitely led an interesting life. I don't believe in the supernatural aspects of his story, but the fact so many people believed in him he changed the entire church's view towards what he did is pretty impressive. EDIT: Talking about Padre Pio, not Shia ha


CMUber

As someone who doesn’t know of him at all, your comment is the most compelling for me to learn more.


AranasLatrain

To delve a little further into the details. Early in his life he said he was called on by god, and he received stigmata scars. He then started giving his blessings to people who would seem to be miracously cured. His reach went so far, in the episode of Unsolved Mysteries an american woman had a daughter that had an affliction doctors said couldn't be cured. She flew to Italy with her daughter, and begged Padre Pio to bless her. The girl made a miraculous recovery. The cool thing about him is he never boasted or taunted his abilities. He would just bless people who wanted to receive it and send them on their way.


loomday

OMG I read through two thirds of that thinking you meant Shia Labeouf. Smh at myself

Same lmao


Motorboat_Jones

He helped the Peanut Butter Falcon. So, maybe...


stingers77

He did.


deenaleen

Took me like 2/3 into this comment until I realized this hasn't been about Shia LaBeouf. Shit was seriously blowing my mind for a minute. I should go to bed.


Vundal

To add to this , Pio is seen as a "mystic" in the eyes of the church. He's gotten many miracles assigned to him. Such as projections of himself Infront of bombers during WW2 that stopped them from destroying his town, visions of him visiting the papacy while dead, etc. Even if you don't believe that he was a great person


godisanelectricolive

He performed miracles like healing the sick, the disabled and the blind. He did spiritual combat with the Devil to exorcise people. It was said he could bilocate, that is literally be in two places at once. He also famously bore the stigmata on his hands, holes that matched the wounds Christ had while nailed on the cross. He could even fly. He first started becoming famous around 1918 and he was one of the most famous people alive by the time of his death in 1968. That is what his supporters sincerely believed. The Church initially denounced him off as a fraud and tried to silence him but the intense and passionate following he attracted caused them to change their minds. They recognized him as a real miracle worker and canonized him as a saint years after his death. Even today he's widely beloved and venerated by Catholics worldwide.b


nokinship

This is literally how deities work. The same stories about this guy is how we got Jesus.


IAMABobby

The difference is that Padre Pio would say he did everything through the power and intercession of the Sanctifier and would object to anyone worshipping him.


CMUber

I’m sorry? These claims are so wild to me! Lol im like, what would I believe if I lived back then hahaha and at his death he was a Celebrity Clergy, huh?


klauskinki

Back then when? He lived in the last century lol


knave-arrant

There are people on Reddit who have only lived in *this* century.


klauskinki

*gasp*


nokinship

He burned his hands in the wrong place. Crucifixion nails were placed in the wrists. Crucifixes are literally artists representation of what happened not what the church came up with.


IAMABobby

I believe the thinking is that the nails went diagonally through his palm and out his wrist. That’s why artist depictions tend to vary.

thenightwasdarkagain

I’ll never be able to look at Shia again without thinking about the “he will not divide us” videos from the internet historian


Rock_And_Stoneeeeee

Shia is such a joke. How can you take this guy seriously?


grameno

Its gonna come out Shia nailed his own hands and saw Jesus personally. Abel Ferrara has his controversial allure in casting a cancelled actor and Shia Labeouf transitions to the faith based films/ making films in the wilderness of the industry.


lp7625

Wait, this guy still makes movies? Didn’t he have assault charges and was like, generally fkn bonkers all around? Wow

Weren't there allegations that he killed dogs for a role as well? I remember he sounded like a literal psychopath when all of the stuff about him was being talked about.

Which is extra weird given he owned a bulldog as a pet in the past


SuperUnknown231

Reddit: where abuse always matters unless it's someone i like.


CanadianLemur

I mean look at how many top comments are saying the same thing as you. It's clear that the consensus is that we don't like this dude. The biggest problem is that his story is not nearly as publicized. I literally didn't hear about his abuse until I read about it on this thread.


radicalelation

It's honestly better than it used to be, but if you compare Amber Heard and Shia LaBeouf threads the general response here is far more mixed than Heard ever received on main subs. Granted, the trials boosted Heard's shittyness more than LaBeouf's has been so far, while you have quite a few people in this thread asking what's being referred to. I don't think the consensus is quite so clear on his popularity specifically, but it does at least seem like it's clear if people *know* the reality then they don't like him, and not as many people know like they did with Heard.


Canttalkandnotcurse

Who gives a shit? He is like one year removed from accusations that he abused women in relationships. And that was on top of a decade of douchebag behavior. Why should I give a fuck he found a random role that will let him keep his hobo beard?


Dustypigjut

Lol at the dudes in this thread fawning over a woman beater just because they like his movies. Ironically, enough the same people jerking themselves in anticipation of this film are also the same ones who self righteously ponder why it took several decades to stop of a guy like Weinstein. “Art” and “entertainment” are placed over character and human decency.

BeaverShmeaver

... why... He isn't that good of an actor nor human


NightsOfFellini

For those that have not been keeping up, Ferrara had been doing some fantastic films ever since he's left Hollywood (Obv was great in Hollywood too). His collaborations with Willem Dafoe, such as Pasolini and Tommaso (micro budget, my favorite of his in a while) are just incredibly interesting and I would actually even say brave works. There's very little as sincere, raw feeling work being done. Welcome to New York is also just brutal. Can't wait for this.
