Shia LaBeouf now trades “upwards of $300K” after Wall Street knowledge sinks in
HollywoodNews.com: Actor Shia LaBeouf said New York’s financial workers are guys that couldn’t make it on the sports team at school.
Shia, who stars alongside Michael Douglas in new flick ‘Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps,’ admits he learnt one thing about the people that work in the financial world from his new film.
The 24-year-old told British Metro newspaper: “I think what you end up with often on Wall Street is a bunch of guys who couldn’t make it on to the sports team at school and fell into finance. A lot of these guys wanted to be competitive athletes and found themselves in finance, it’s a ‘kill or be killed’ mentality – it’s worse than Hollywood.”
Before the movie LaBeouf admits he knew nothing about finance but starring in the flick seems to have paid off. He added: “I come from poverty, my mother laughs about it all the time. She went on welfare, we had no money and now I’m trading upwards of $300,000 in the morning.”
