Shia LaBeouf Breaks Silence 'Mortifying' Arrest in 2017

Shia LaBeouf Breaks Silence 'Mortifying' Arrest in 2017

"Take everything you want.' And he did", he told the magazine.

LaBeouf acknowledges his "public outbursts" may remind people of those by famed tennis star John McEnroe, who he portrays in new movie Borg vs. McEnroe, but states, "McEnroe was a master at his rage". "Zack can't not shoot straight, and bless him for it, 'cause in that moment, I needed a straight shooter who I couldn't argue with". "It came from a place of self-centered delusion", he told Esquire. West previously praised LaBeouf's threads in an alternate version of the Life of Pablo cut "No More Parties in L.A.", crediting Kid Cudi-who collaborated extensively with LaBeouf during the Man on the Moon II era-for inspiring him to ditch the all-black-everything vibes. "And you're ruining it", LaBeouf recalls Gottsagen saying. "They're not strategic. They're a struggling motherf--er showing his ass in front of the world".

At a police station, LaBeouf was caught on camera telling a black police officer that he was "going straight to hell, straight to hell, bro". "The truth is, in my desperation, I lost the plot".

The actor says he overheard his mother being raped when the two lived in a seedier part of Los Angeles. "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". "That dude has a lot of my s-".

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. "They don't release these!' Just on my defense-mechanism-fear garbage", LaBeouf explained. "He took all my fucking clothes". "Me and him haven't really been in contact since he blew up onstage and, you know, shit on me".

Among the topics on his arrest, and the happenings while filming The Peanut Butter Falcon, Shia talks about Kanye West and how the rapper grabbed his Yeezy inspiration from him.

LeBeouf said he hasn't heard from West since his public meltdown on stage in November 2016 but has tried to reach out.

Elsewhere in the chat he also spoke about that time Kanye West stole all his clothes. "And I don't know where he's at or what he's doing", he said.
