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
The patron saint of infinite olive oil…
Irish Catholics are mad for a bit of the Padre as well.
My Mexican Catholic mom and her Mexican Catholic mom friends also love padre pio
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.
Lmfao true. My childhood
Used to always wonder why Obi Wan was in everyone's sitting room.
Lots of old ladies have stickers of him on their cars.
3. Wooden Spoon
… to smack you if you dare to dip bread in the sauce before food is ready
That’s stereotypical, those spoons are bludgeons
I would support that plan. I'm tired of asking every movie theater about their spaghetti policy
Not to mention almost every trucker in Italy has Padre Pio plastered to the front of their rigs. 😂
That the most widespread (and sometimes the only) safety measure of Italian truckers.
In Malta it is pretty common as well... most old households have Padre Pio paintings or statues
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.
Not from "Cool hand Luke" I hope.
It’s a pic from Airport 75
Whichever movie its from you can bet he's good and sweaty
it's worth mentioning you're only gonna see them in elderly homes or maybe in some countryside homes.
My wife’s Maltese uncle had a life-sized statue of Padre Pio in his lounge room. It was very disconcerting.
Do you have something to test the purity of said olive oil?
Check your local theatre on their spaghetti policy first
Dude is starting to look like Russell Crowe
How long before they start competing for roles?
They won't Crowe is aging into the Elder God roles.
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.
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....
It’s a fairly common thing and not strange at all. Like all of it, Vegas, Elvis. It’s legit a thing.
Yep, what he did to FKA Twigs is so fucked up. He has serious, serious problems.
Well Crowe is even more abusive...
Theres literal footage of him fighting 'round the world.
Yeah but Crowe is cool and a fun time.
While Shia is just... unhinged.
Yeah but did Shia assault a dying cancer patient????
I dont think so!
I wouldn't put it past him.
What’s cool about throwing a hotel phone at a clerk?
Born in New Zealand in sixty-four.
A hot-headed actor named Russell Crowe.
He loves to act but he loves one thing more.
Fightin' Round The World.
The what now? Didn't know about this.
Method actors, ugh
What makes you think they don't already? That they didn't have a slap fight behind a dumpster after an audition?
I was thinking Gerard butler.
now I'm confuse what each of them look like.
Imagining Shia saying This is Sparta! with his weird quirky mannerisms and fast speech pacing
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.
Had such a crush on Ren haha.
Fr, seriously thought that’s who it was in the first pic
And here I thought I was the only one.
Came here to comment this. Genuinely thought it was him as I scrolled past
This is getting out of hand, now theres two of them!
Actual Cardinal Shia Lebeouf???
He was never ordained, Shia SURPRISE.
He’s got god in his heart
And love in his eyes.
But you can (still) do jujitsu – body slam cardinal Shia La Beouf!
Fighting for your life with cardinal LaBeouf! Wrestling a knife from cardinal LaBeouf!
Stab it in his kidney!
Using acid on his hand, Shia Lebouf.
Faking stigmatae, Shia Lebouf.
Becoming a Saint, wait that was actually Padre Pio
The combo of these two working together has me very intrigued, could be brilliant could be a disaster.
Sometimes maybe good sometimes maybe shit. Hell Shia could play Gattuso in a movie
Shia always lives up to and then exceeds my expectations. He's one of my all time favorite actors
>could be brilliant or a brilliant disaster
Does he teach people to not shoot dogs?
What's next, TJ Miller as John the Baptist?
bill cosby gonna get a role as desmond tutu
The Cos is truly America's Dad
- Soldier Boy
He makes a strong drink - also Soldier Boy
Kobe Bryant as Mary Magdalene.
Amber Heard as Mary.
I bet it’s *at least* decent
Shia may be guilty of a lot of things………..
Phoning a performance in, sure as hell, **AINT** one of them
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.
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.
Yeah that scene was made for the 12 year old boys coming to see it.
The first one was good. Second was crap, third was passable, the next 3 were made from pure dog shit.
Bumblee was great! other two of the last 3 are shit though
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.
I think he amazing actor. I never watch something of him that made me hate it.
My thoughts exactly. I honestly think he's one of the greatest living actors. Sucks he's out of his mind.
Shia is such an amazing talent when all the pieces are there. His performance in fury blew me away.
Peanut Butter Falcon was great
I rewatched Honey Boy recently and was blown away again by not just his performance but the child as well. Top notch acting.
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.
It was so much better than I had any hope that it would be, and it was largely due to Shia's performance.
Check out "American Honey“ for more dirtbag Shia
He was also good in Pieces of a woman but Vanessa Kirby stole the show. The first 30 minutes, holy shit!
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.
Holy shit you just unlocked a core memory. Didn’t he play a special needs boy?
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…
Is this the one where he shoots a stray dog?
Wait, Padre Pio is that Obi-Wan lookin dude, right? Literally the only thing I know about him.
Yes, but this is actually a Mamma Mia spinoff film designed to appeal to male audiences.
Hahaha, almost all our male saints look like him ;)
Correct only backwards. Obi-Wan was made to look like typical image of saint on purpose.
Why him? I thought his carrer ended after those assault allegations.
he is repenting for his sins. did you not look at these images?
Holy fuck this is just on the nose enough for Shia to actually be intentional
homeboy literally found Jesus while making this film
Abel works in Europe and outside of the Hollywood/Streaming Service system.
A little substance abuse never stopped Abel Ferrera from hiring you!
Show me your face when you're sucking a guy's cock! Show me your cock sucking face!
it's what angry dads and actors have used to excuse their behavior since prohibition
And before, as those familiar with the popular culture of 19th-century America can testify to....
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.
>dog-shooting piece of shit
I'm not sure I want to know the answer but, huh?
It's exactly what it sounds like. He shot stray dogs to "prepare for a role."
Oh, that's nice. Just apologize and everything is okay?
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.
He always reminded me of just about every narcissistic cokehead I've met. My opinion is unchanged.
Substances can turn you into a dick.
But more than likely they just amplify what was already there.
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.
Abel Ferrara doesn’t care about controversy
i would say that he likes it very much
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.
Beyond ready for this guy to stop being in the limelight.
Same. Reddit loves him because he was a meme for so long.
Judging from this comment section, I think that blanket sentiment has changed.
His career ends when people don't want to work with him anymore, that's not yet the case
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
As someone who doesn’t know of him at all, your comment is the most compelling for me to learn more.
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.
OMG I read through two thirds of that thinking you meant Shia Labeouf. Smh at myself
He helped the Peanut Butter Falcon. So, maybe...
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.
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
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
This is literally how deities work. The same stories about this guy is how we got Jesus.
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.
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?
Back then when? He lived in the last century lol
There are people on Reddit who have only lived in *this* century.
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.
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.
Where can one watch this?
Here you go https://youtu.be/i4T9fO1pkfE
I’ll never be able to look at Shia again without thinking about the “he will not divide us” videos from the internet historian
Shia is such a joke. How can you take this guy seriously?
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.
Wait, this guy still makes movies? Didn’t he have assault charges and was like, generally fkn bonkers all around? Wow
Does anyone really want to go see this tool?
I am sorry Shia Lebeouf is playing W H A T ???
Should have had Robert Downey Jr. starring opposite of him. And then put them into a forbidden relationship...
MTV Movie Award Best Kiss in the bag.
they should stop giving physically abusive actors jobs
Can’t help but see this d bag as himself no matter the role now
Yeah, I'm fairly good at separating the actor from the role, but this one is over the top
Does he beat the actors playing other priests in this movie like he did his former girlfriend?
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
Reddit: where abuse always matters unless it's someone i like.
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.
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.
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?
This dude is a piece of shit domestic abuser. How the fuck is he still getting work
A little late for a sequel to Nacho Libre isn’t it
Oh look that’s the guy who abused FKA twigs
Im shocked he’s still got a career after doing the shit he’s done(way worse than what Amber Heard did yet her career is 🚽)
Why do filmmakers want to cast this man?
His name can get them financing and distribution.
That’s a surprise
Love him or hate him, he's got chops.
Hollywood is full of pieces of shit who are unfortunately very talented.
Padre PIO would not approve of this clown portraying him
One of JayZ’s best albums
He’s a piece of shit.
Didn't he beat the shit out of his girlfriend
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.
Padre Pio was a fraud. I hope they put that into the film.
Certified by the Church itself before they understood how popular he was.
But a fraud indeed.
Actual cannibal Shia Labeouf
actual abuser shia laboeuf
Surprised he's able to find work at all after the FKA Twigs allegations.
Indiana Jones 5 (2023)
He really has matured quite a lot, though I suppose time will do that. I don't know why I'm surprised that he looks older than he did to her 15 years ago, but here I am.
I can get past a lot, but [shooting stray dogs to “prepare for a role”](https://www.cinemablend.com/news/2560107/shia-labeouf-responds-to-recent-allegations-lawsuit-fka-twigs-abuse-dogs) is way too far for me. Never spending a dime to support this asshole.
... why... He isn't that good of an actor nor human
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.
Didn’t this dude shoot stray dogs? Fuck anyone looking forward to this movie.
Why is he still working?
I hope Abel is the first guest on Conan's next show
Honestly, this asshole is enough to turn me off of a movie.
Is this connected to Mamma Mia in any way?
This looks like that fake movie where Robert Downey Jr. played a closeted monk in Tropic Thunder.
