I love it. Read this at Bible Study or Home Group tonight. Out loud. Without Omissions. Enjoy.

While speaking with Interview Magazine about playing a Christian character named Boyd ‘Bible’ Swan in the film, LaBeouf revealed his own apparent conversion to Christianity.

“I found God doing ‘Fury.’ I became a Christian man, and not in a f***ing bulls**t way — in a very real way,” he said. “I could have just said the prayers that were on the page. But it was a real thing that really saved me. And you can’t identify unless you’re really going through it.”

LaBeouf said that it was “a full-blown exchange of heart, a surrender of control,” noting, though, that acting is about control, which made performing in the film “a wild thing” to navigate.

The actor also credited co-star Brad Pitt with helping guide him through the process.
