Itís entirely possible that heís being sincere about those films. After all, they are the ones that allowed him to get his foot in the door in regards to the movie industry, so itís entirely possible that they may occupy a special place in his heart. Besides, I personally thought Constantine was a great film and I have no problem saying that publicly. Since Iím not a fan of the source material I was able to enjoy the film for what it was, a fresh take on the whole supernatural detective subgenre. In some ways it reminded me of a tamer, more commercial Angel Heart, which is also a personal favourite of mine. I Robot, on the other hand, I didnít enjoy anywhere near as much but I certainly wouldnít look down upon someone who did.
All actors, by the very nature of their profession, are Ďfull of ití. They make their living pretending to be other people. However, Shia comes across to me during interviews as being an endearing young man, seemingly free of the egocentric airs that characterize the typical Hollywood star. I suppose you could turn this logic around and say heís portraying a deliberate image, seeing as how he is an actor and all. However, perception is reality, and so far I havenít seen him do or say anything that would lead me to suspect heís a total dirtbag in person.
