Shia LaBeouf is trending on social media Friday for his "method"-styled performance as a stoner in the streamed table reading of "Fast Times at Ridgemont High."

While Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston had a moment during last night's star-studded table reading of the 1982 cult film, it was LaBeouf''s approach to the role of the film's celebrated stoner that is grabbing eyeballs.


"In various videos of the event that have been shared across social-media platforms, you can see LaBeouf, who is playing the role of Jeff Spicoli — one of the film's three main stoners originally played by (Sean Penn) — smoking what seems to be a real joint in his garage," reports the website Insider.

Penn was also part of the cast, which featured Pitt, Aniston, Morgan Freeman (who narrated), Julia Roberts, Matthew McConaughey, Ray Liotta, and Jimmy Kimmel. Comedian Dane Clark produced the event streamed to raise money for Penn's nonprofit organization Community Organized Relief Effort as well as the criminal-justice-reform group Reform Alliance.

"For the entirety of the table read, LaBeouf also adopted Spicoli's trademark low-pitched, confused stoner voice, and for a period he goes shirtless and puts on a pair of neon sunglasses," Insider adds.

"On Friday morning, LaBeouf's name began trending on Twitter as people expressed their love for his commitment to the role of Jeff Spicoli (one of the film's three main stoners) smoking what may or may not be a real joint in a car in his garage," reports Yahoo Style.

LaBeouf's morning jogs through Pasadena have also trended on social media, partly because he appears to not wear underwear when he jogs, as these recent Instagram pics show.
