Mia Wasikowska's take on working with the notoriously difficult Shia LaBeouf is pretty simple: "It's all more or less how it would appear."
When the actress stopped by HuffPost Live on Friday to discuss her new film, "Tracks," host Ricky Camilleri asked about her work with LaBeouf on the set of the 2012 film "Lawless," where LaBeouf drank lots of moonshine to achieve a "drunk bloat" for his role. LaBeouf himself spoke to Page Six in 2012 about the toll his antics took on Wasikowska:
She was calling her attorney, like, "Get me the fuck out of here." ... Mia was ready to walk away from the movie. I was really pretty aggressive about it, and not in any kind of weird, strange way, but I don’t think she had ever experienced anything like that.
Wasikowska told HuffPost Live the uncomfortable dynamic was part of LaBeouf's process.
"He's a very method actor, and so I was on the receiving end of the method," she said.
She added that learning to adapt in situations like that is par for the course in filmmaking.
"You meet so many different people, and sometimes you connect with them and you share that you have a similar approach and sometimes you don't, and you just have to let them do their thing and hope it doesn't affect you too deeply," Wasikowska said.
