List Rules Vote for the best, craziest, weirdest, coolest versions of Shia LaBeouf

Shia LaBeouf is arguably more famous for his bizarre antics than for his film roles. Over the years, we've seen Shia transform (no pun intended) from a goofy child actor, to a ruggedly handsome adult. . . but his metamorphosis didn't stop there.  

We've seen Shia appear at film premieres with a paper bag over his head. We've gazed in horror as Shia pulled out his own tooth that one time. We've laughed at the story of the night he got drunk at Cabaret in New York. We've contemplated growing out our own sweet rattail to rock on the red carpet. We've dreamed of starring in one of Sia's music videos alongside him or collaborating with him on one of his insane art installations. And we were all incredibly inspired to JUST DO IT when his motivational speech video debuted in summer 2015. Shia's shenanigans are the perfect combination of totally crazy and totally genius.

In May of 2016, Shia embarked on a two-month journey through America... FOR ART. LaBeouf and two collaborators, Nastja Säde Rönkkö and Luke Turner, decided they would tweet out their coordinates and allow fans to pick them up. Once they did, the fans could take the trio anywhere they wanted. They promised to film the ordeal, called #TAKEMEANYWHERE, for a documentary to be screened at the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art and the Finnish Institute in London. “With these projects, we try to retain a naïveté, or that’s the goal,” LaBeouf told Vice. “The goal is to sort of stay naïve, stay impressionable, stay malleable.”
