"What went on in Georgia was mortifying", the actor said. "White privilege and desperation and disaster", LaBeouf said. It came from a place of self-centered delusion ...
In a recent profile with Esquire where he opens up about his "mortifying" arrest, the 31-year-old actor confirmed that he and Tom got into several physical altercations on set of the 2012 film Lawless - where Shia would drink moonshine by the gallon to get into character. "I f-ked up".
The Transformers star hit headlines in July (17), when he was busted for disorderly conduct, public drunkenness, and obstruction during a night out in Savannah, where he had been shooting the film The Peanut Butter Falcon.
"Everybody was pussyfooting around it", he recalled, but he said Gottsagen told him point blank, "You're already famous". In an outtake from Kanye's song "No More Parties in L.A.", the rapper included the line: "I wish I dressed as fresh as Shia LaBeouf". "Me and him haven't really been in contact since he blew up onstage and, you know, shit on me". "Why would I ask for a cigarette if I was racist?"
Asked by another officer why LaBeouf thinks his colleague is going to hell, LaBeouf replied, "Because he's a black man. ..."
In October, the actor was ordered by a judge to attend an anger management class.
LaBeouf, who has a history of legal trouble, subsequently issued a public apology, insisting he was "deeply ashamed" of his behaviour, which served as motivation for him to work on his sobriety. "You come up on these stories about "Easy Rider" and "Raging Bull" and De Niro and Scorsese and Hopper, and you find value in what they do".
Kim says that the hat was gifted by LaBeouf, who can confirm at least this much: "The dude has a lot of my shit".
"My whole life", LaBeouf said.
LaBeouf explained: "The first time I got arrested with a real charge, it stemmed from the same s***". It's the same feeling of "You need to avenge your mother" he says contributed to his first arrest when he went after a man who "bumped into my mother's auto with his vehicle in a parking lot".
In a new Esquire cover story, Shia LaBeouf delved into his complex relationship with none other than Kanye West.
