Actor Shia Labeouf has teamed up with shock rocker Marilyn Manson to shoot a documentary about the making of his new album.
The Transformers star recently stepped behind the camera to direct the video for Kid Cudi’s controversial new song Marijuana, and when Manson saw the actor’s work, he commissioned him to help with visuals on his own record.

Describing their recent meeting during an appearance on U.S. show Live With Regis and Kelly, the actor says, “He’s a real sweet guy. He’s an eccentric human being. He lives in West Hollywood above a liquor store. There’s no lights in the room. And there’s sort of these big metal doors and he opens the door and he’s in a kimono, a big pink kimono… It’s sort of like a lair.

“No lights, so you have to use your cellphone to guide you around… We sat and watched movies for a while…. and talked about what kind of visuals he wanted on his album. Which are all really eccentric ideas. All things I can’t really say out loud because this is morning television.”
