Shia LaBeouf Breaks Silence on 'Mortifying' Arrest

Shia LaBeouf Breaks Silence on 'Mortifying' Arrest

On his arrest in Georgia, where he went on a tirade to police: "What went on in Georgia was mortifying".

LaBeouf says his offscreen conduct made him a liability in Hollywood, and that it has become hard for him to book new roles, despite being hailed as the "Best Actor for the Buck" in the late aughts.

He told the new issue of Esquire magazine: "I've always thought somebody was coming in".

'McEnroe was a master at his rage, ' the Even Stevens alum noted. "I'm a good old-fashioned drunk - whiskey and beer - and have been since I touched alcohol". "The truth is, in my desperation, I lost the plot". So I'm like, "Go for it, my guy".

Shia's public outbursts and weird behaviour - including that time he worse a paper bag that read "I am not famous anymore" on a red carpet - became more publicised than his acting, after rising through the ranks of Hollywood a child prodigy. They're not strategic. They're a struggling motherfucker showing his ass in front of the world'.

LaBeouf is next set to star in Borg McEnroe, which follows the great tennis rivalry between Swedish tennis legend Björn Borg (Sverrir Gudnason) and American tennis icon John McEnroe (Shia LaBeouf). When Kanye went to LaBeouf's house to discuss possible art collaborations, he asked if he could have some of his clothes for a pop-up shop. "He took all my fucking clothes", LaBeouf said - including his famed hat from Indiana Jones.

In a new Esquire cover story, Shia LaBeouf delved into his complex relationship with none other than Kanye West. Take everything you want.' And he did. When the movie's star, an actor with Down syndrome named Zachary Gottsagen, confronted LaBeouf about the arrest, he says it changed his life. He says he tried to reach out after that show, but that Ye is "going through a lot". When it came time to talk about the Savannah, Georgia, arrest (during which he hurled a variety of expletives at police, scolded a black office for arresting white people and bragged about his "millionaire lawyers", to name a few of the highlights), he told the journalist interviewing him, "I know this is uncomfortable for you to bring up, bro. And I don't know where he's at or what he's doing".
