Shia LaBeouf: 'Mortifying Georgia arrest was a wake-up call'

Shia La Beouf covers 'Esquire' magazine's April 2018 issue

"What went on in Georgia was mortifying", LaBeouf says in an Esquire profile of his arrest in Savannah for public intoxication, disorderly conduct, and obstruction. "The truth is, in my desperation, I lost the plot". "And you're ruining it", LaBeouf recalls Gottsagen saying. Take everything you want.' And he did.

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. It came from a place of self-centered delusion...

"You're going to hell, straight to hell, bro", LaBeouf also told an African American officer in video of the arrest.

The actor - who's latest project is Borg/McEnroe - explained they never found the man and that when he went to rehab a year ago he was told he had PTSD, now blaming his violent past on the incident. LaBeouf later said the man would go to hell "because he's a black man". Made by Danish director Janus Metz Pedersen, the film stars LaBeouf as the hotheaded tennis player John McEnroe and follows his on-the-court rivalry with Bjorn Borg. "They're not strategic. They're a struggling motherf**ker showing his a** in front of the world". "It was my trying to absolve myself of guilt for getting arrested..."

QB Sam Bradford to sign with the Arizona Cardinals
In his first season with the Vikings, he completed almost 70 percent of his passes, had 20 touchdown and only five interceptions. He spent the better part of two months on injured reserve before being activated as Case Keenum's backup during the postseason.

Shia LaBeouf has opened up about hearing his mother being raped, as he revealed he suffered post traumatic stress disorder due to the incident. So I went after the dude with a knife [but didn't use it].I've always thought somebody was coming in. "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". He took all my f-ing clothes.

According to the magazine, LaBeouf is referring to West's concert rant in November 2016, when he said, "Shia LaBeouf: Kid Cudi feels a way". He says he tried to reach out after that show, but that Ye is "going through a lot".

On how his behavior has effected his work: "I'm run out. And I don't know where he's at or what he's doing", he said.

Following the revelation earlier this month that the idea for LaBeouf's HEWILLNOTDIVIDE.US project with Nastja Säde Rönkkö and Luke Turner was conceived after a meeting with Kanye West, the topic of LaBeouf and West's creative connection is again broached in the piece.
