Earlier this week, Shia Labeouf had a genius idea to sit in a movie theater and livestream himself watching all 27 of his movies in reverse chronological order...and Jaden Smith really wanted to be there for that moment.

This isn't the first time Jaden has shown his admiration for Shia, though. Back in 2014, he reached out to Shia to show his support after the actor debuted his #IAMSORRY art exhibit. "I Waited In Line Today On Beverly Blvd To See @thecampaignbook I Never Got See Him But I Had A Very Important Message To Deliver," Jaden Smith tweeted on Sunday. "I'm Here If You Need A Fellow Insane Person To Talk To. But I'm Seriously Here Not Like One Of Those I'm Here For You's That Everybody Says."

He continued, "It Was A Message That Only Could Be Understood Artist To Artist. @thecampaignbook I'm Here For You I Believe In What Your Doing." While it's not clear if they ever met up, Jaden later tweeted back in March out of the blue simply, "Shia LaBeouf is life."
Jaden hasn't tweeted whether or not he finally saw Shia, but, according to Rolling Stone, who went to the screening around 1 p.m. Wednesday, there were guards standing outside the door of the movie theater, and inside a group of twentysomethings were watching Fury in silence. Shia was sitting at the front with a big camera in his face, which was recording him, and wasn't speaking (he has refused to speak for the whole 58 consecutive hours).
He, did, however share some popcorn with the girl in the seat next to him. Which, we're sure, is exactly where Jaden wanted to be.
