Daniel Clowes - Shia LaBeouf spends $25,000 on skywriting
Shia LaBeouf spent $25,000 to have the words ''Stop Creating'' penned in the sky for seven minutes yesterday (10.01.14) after announcing his retirement from ''public life.''
Shia LaBeouf spent $25,000 to have part of his retirement announcement penned in the sky.
The 27-year-old actor, who claimed he was retiring from ''public life'' yesterday (10.01.14) after being criticised for recently hiring a skywriter to apologise for plagiarising author Daniel Clowes' graphic novellas, 'Justin M. Damiano,' for his short film 'HowardCantour.com,' commissioned another fleet of planes to write the words ''Stop Creating'' in giant letters above Los Angeles, shortly after he posted them on Twitter.
A spokesperson for the skywriting company Skytypers told gossip website TMZ.com that Shia's people contact them yesterday morning and they dispatched five planes for the job.
The message took up five miles in the sky and was only legible for approximately seven minutes.
The 'Nymphomaniac' star announced he was taking a step back from the limelight yesterday morning after a tough few weeks.
He wrote: ''In light of the recent attacks against my artistic integrity, I am retiring from all public life.''
He added: ''My love goes out to those who have supported me. #stopcreating.''
The 'Transformers' star came under fire, including from 'Girls' star and creator Lena Dunham, after he employed a team to write a message in the sky above Los Angeles on New Year's Day (01.01.14) reading ''I AM SORRY DANIEL CLOWES,'' in an attempt to make peace for plagiarising the comic book writer's work.
