Shia LaBeouf Breaks Silence on 'Mortifying' Arrest

Shia LaBeouf Breaks Silence on 'Mortifying' Arrest

"What went on in Georgia was mortifying", he began. "The truth is, in my desperation, I lost the plot".

LaBeouf apologized a few days after his arrest saying he was "deeply ashamed" of his behavior.

"Around the same time, I took my mother to his concert", LaBeouf told the publication. "It came from a place of self-centered delusion", he told Esquire.

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.

LaBeouf revealed that since working on the 2010 sequel to Wall Street, he pledged to go for roles that "chase sincerity", alluding to a scene in which he was being outacted by Josh Brolin and was trying to overcompensate.

LaBeouf did a full profile interview with Esquire, admitting early on that he was extremely nervous even talking to the reporter, Eric Sullivan.

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). "They're not strategic. They're a struggling m--f-- showing his ass in front of the world". "He goes to the money and pushes to try to get me in the movie, the money says no, and that's the end of me hanging out with Spike Lee for this film". "I came up to you asking for a cigarette, you dumb f-!" "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. It's very hard to keep doing what you're doing when you feel like it's the antithesis of your objective on this planet". He's going through a lot.

LaBeouf fled to a hotel when the officer tried to arrest him, and he was taken into custody in the lobby, police said. "And I don't know where he's at or what he's doing", he said. He took all my f-ing clothes.

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. The title is a reference to his father's nickname for him, and the synopsis found on The Black List sounds very personal: "A child actor and his law-breaking, alcohol-abusing father attempt to mend their contentious relationship over the course of a decade".
