Los Angeles: "Transformers" star Shia LaBeouf says making his upcoming thriller-drama "Man Down" was like a therapy.
The 29-year-old actor stars as a Marine coping with post-traumatic stress while searching for his wife and son in the Dito Montiel-directed post-apocalyptic war film and said it was like "a healing process", reported Entertainment Weekly.
"He (Montiel) came to my house when I was in a really low place and offered it to me like therapy, like, 'Here's a healing process so we can jump into together and get well," LaBeouf said.
"Man Down" reunites LaBeouf and Montiel, who last worked together on 2006's "A Guide to Recognising Your Saints" and the actor said he does his best work when he is surrounded by people who love and support him.
"I want to work with people that I have a connection with. I think for a while I was chasing the 10 list, right? The 10 directors you want to work with ? and that didn't fare well for me... So I'm trying to make friends now and work with those people," he said.
