On the heels of the FBI Phone Record Collection scandal, a video of Shia LaBeouf talking about prepping for the film Eagle Eye has resurfaced. In an interview with Jay Leno, Shia revealed that an FBI consultant he worked with for the movie played back a phone conversation Shia had years before even signing on to the film!

The FBI consultant also told Shia that 1 out of every 5 phone calls you have is recorded by the government. Turns out Shia wasn’t trying to just “sell” his movie with crazy stories. It was ALL TRUE!

Eagle Eye was released in 2008.
