Shia LaBeouf Explains 'Mortifying' Arrest, 'White Privilege'-Fueled Tirade

Shia La Beouf on the April 2018 cover of Esquire

"The first time I got arrested with a real charge, it stemmed from the same (expletive)".

LaBeouf was arrested as he filmed The Peanut Butter Falcon, a movie about a developmentally disabled man who leaves a nursing home to become a professional wrestler. In a video of LaBeouf's arrest obtained by ET, the actor repeatedly swore at his arresting officers, also telling a black officer that the president "doesn't give a f**k about you, and you wanna do what?"

Gottsagen, who has Down syndrome, was straight with LaBeouf, he told Esquire, and that was what he needed in that dark moment.

Shia LaBeouf has made more headlines for his numerous arrests and out-of-control behaviour than for his film roles in recent years, and that's something the 31-year-old actor wants to change. "You're already famous. This is my chance".

Still, LaBeouf says he's since reached out to the fellow controversial star. "'Cause I was still fighting".

Trump's Personal Assistant Fired Over Security Issue
After the eleciton, McEntee remained close to the president in the White House as his body man. McEntee was escorted from the White House and was not allowed to collect his belongings.

He continued, "I've got to look at my failures in the face for a while". They don't release these!' Just on my defense-mechanism-fear garbage. And you can't do that to him. He keeps it one thousand with you, and that shit doesn't even make sense to him. "Some guy bumped into my mother's vehicle with his auto in a parking lot, and my head went right to 'You need to avenge your mother!' So I went after the dude with a knife". "Around the same time, I took my mother to his concert..."

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.

In an interview with Esquire, the Transformers actor explained when he was "about ten" he heard his mother being attacked and "froze". "Most of my life", he added. 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 vehicle with his auto in a parking lot".
