Shia LaBeouf’s dark side

Shia LaBeoufShia LaBeouf has a “dark side.” The Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps actor could never be as squeaky-clean as other Hollywood stars because he has always been “a ruffian.” He explained: “I’ve never been like Zac Efron. I am a bit of an a**hole. I have a dark side. I’m a bit of a ruffian. I’ve never tried to be anything else. I was never educated properly because I got kicked out of every school.” Shia has also admitted the only reason he wanted to be a Hollywood star was because the large pay would help ease his family’s financial problems. He added: “Initially, it was all money driven. I didn’t give a s**t about arts. We were as broke as balls, so I just wanted to move my family into better digs.” The 23-year-old star also revealeds he stays away from celebrity parties. He told Britain’s Glamour magazine: “I am not good at going to parties and doing the schmoozy thing. I drink to get drunk, so I don’t go to social things for a couple of drinks because two and two makes 12… The way I deal with being at those functions is to get wasted. And that jeopardizes what I love and what keeps my family fed, and builds my self-worth. I’d risk too much.”

    I’ve been holding out, but it seems like Shia is the real deal. Finally, an actor that has the balls and self-discipline to remain himself.

    Honesty is as good a quality as any. Larry, Tiger & Jesse can all take notes on that. In the words of Van Wilder “Write that down”. Moving forward from that I do hope that in the near future he can move past the teen years and get some help if he cannot kick drinking. Perhaps even go to rehab, he’d be the only celeb in their recently who should be there.
