When you think of fame, some people thing of glamour, success and money. Others think of burden, paparazzi, and obligation. Sometimes a little of one or the other leads to a whole lot of crazy choices., and this is certainly (or is it?) the case with Shia LaBeouf.
Now, let the record show we aren't saying Shia LaBeouf is crazy. Far from it. This weird and fascinating art project he's (inadvertently? consciously?) turned his life into is a force to be reckoned with. We'd love for him to pull the mask (or brown paper bag) off one day and reveal it was one giant, multi-year Joaquin Phoenix-esque charade. But with each altercation and each outlandish new exploit, it gets harder and harder to believe the stories emerging in the news are 100% performance. Every random fight caught on camera, every story of on-set antics, every art display (where LaBeouf is seen to be crying), and every bizarre interview takes him (and us) further down the rabbit hole.These are the craziest things Shia has done, and there are plenty more not represented on this list. That we had enough for leftovers is a testament to what this child star has become, or what he's made himself into. We may never know. But whatever the case, we're all watching.
While eating at a restaurant in London in 2013, a fan approached LaBeouf for an autograph. This request ended in tears for the young lady, whom LaBeouf apparently rudely rebuffed. The woman's boyfriend allegedly confronted LaBeouf, and the matter soon escalated into a physical altercation. The actor was reported to have said "I can get you killed" to the man as security hauled him away.
