After procuring an agent, he landed a part in the Disney Channel's 'Even Stevens', for which he later one an Emmy.

That year he also appeared in Steven Spielberg's 'Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull' alongside Harrison Ford He directed his first music video with Cage's track 'I Never Knew You'. The pair alongside Kid Cudi also worked on a short together entitled 'Maniac'. In 2010, he starred in Oliver Stone's 'Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps' and received critical acclaim for his performance. He was the subject of a Rob Cantor parody song which described LaBeouf as a cannibal. It was taken in good humour by the actor who even appeared in the video. LaBeouf is the author of graphic novels 'Stale N Mate', 'Cyclical', and 'Let's F***ing Party', though some content was accused of being plagiarized. 2012 saw him in crime thriller 'Lawless', and that year he went nude for Sigur Rós' 'Fjögur Píanó' video. He appeared in erotic drama 'Nymphomaniac' in 2013 and Brad Pitt's war time movie 'Fury' in 2014. He also starred in the video for Sia's song 'Elastic Heart' alongside Maddie Ziegler in 2015.
Personal life: Shia LaBeouf was brough up in LA to parents Shayna, a dancer and fashion designer, and Jeffrey, a former soldier who struggled with drug and alcohol addictions. They later divorced and Shia was exposed to increasing financial difficulties. He was raised both Jewish and Christian, having had a Bar Mitzvah and a baptism. He went to 32nd Street Visual and Performing Arts Magnet as well as Alexander Hamilton High School. He had a relationship with China Brezner between 2004 and 2007, and later Carey Mulligan from 2009 to 2010. He also admitted having dated Isabel Lucas and Megan Fox while they were both in relationships already. LaBeouf has had various brushes with the law. He was arrested in 2005 sfter an altercation with his neighbour whereby he rammed into his car and threatened him with a knife when he wouldn't let Shia access his garage, He was arrested again for trespassing in 2007 when he refused to leave a Chicago Walgreens. The following year he was fined $500 after failing to attend court for smoking illegally in Burbank, California. That year he was also arrested for drink driving when he crashed into a truck and crushed his hand. His license was suspended, though the incident itself was confirmed as not his fault. His hand required extensive surgery following the accident. In 2014, he was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct after perpetually shouting and swearing during a performance at Studio 54 theater in New York. In 2013 he was accused of plagiarism when he released the short 'Howard Cantour.com'. Bloggers pointed out the similarities to Dan Clowes 2007 comic 'Justin M. Damiano'. He later apologised with apparently plagiarized apologies. Following these reports, he arrived at the premiere of 'Nymphomaniac' wearing a brown paper bag on his head with the words 'I am not famous anymore'. The stunt was later repeated as part of an exhibition at an LA gallery entitled #IAMSORRY where he greeted visitors one by one in a room, though he said nothing and sat still the entire time. Visitors were invited to select an object on offer outside and take it in with them. That year he claimed he was raped by a woman during the exhibition, though no-one has been able to track down the perpetrator.
LaBeouf's new project with Nastja Ronkko and Luke Turner will involve him spending a month living alone in a log cabin in Finland.
Following the troubles surrounding his controversial art installation designed to protest Donald Trump’s administration, Shia LaBeouf is planning something a lot more low-key for his next art project – by exiling himself entirely.
For the next month, the actor-turned-performance artist will be living completely by himself in a log cabin in the remote Lapland region of Finland, with his only form of communication with the outside world coming via text messages to visitors of a museum in the country’s capital city, Helsinki.
The project is entitled #ALONETOGETHER, and is being undertaken with his art collective colleagues Luke Turner and Nastja Ronkko. Having begun on Wednesday (April 12th), the trio will be living in separate cabins in Finland, according to the Associated Press.

LaBeouf's new war movie 'Man Down' suffered a rather ignoble fate, with just one person paying to see it on its British opening weekend.
As if the constant misfortune that has been surrounding his anti-Donald Trump art installation wasn’t enough, Shia LaBeouf’s reputation has taken another hit with the news that his latest war movie, Man Down, took just £7 at the British box offices last weekend.
That’s right – the single-figure sum made by the film means that just one person paid to see Man Down over the weekend.

'He Will Not Divide Us' has set up in a new location for a third time, following repeated safety concerns and disruption in America.
Having endured a troubled start to life, Shia LaBeouf’s anti-Donald Trump art installation ‘He Will Not Divide Us’ has re-located from America altogether because of safety concerns, finding a new home in Liverpool.
The project is now to be housed at the British city’s Foundation for Art and Creative Technology (FACT) Gallery, after events in New York and Albuquerque showed “that America is simply not safe enough for this artwork to exist”, according to a new statement from the Hollywood star’s artistic group LaBeouf, Rönkkö & Turner.
The installation was originally located on a wall outside New York’s Museum of the Moving Image in Queens, and debuted back on January 20th, the day of the controversial Trump’s inauguration as president.

The actor is becoming one of Hollywood's most likable.
We've felt for a few months now that Shia LaBeouf is really turning things around for himself. He's no longer the booze-swigging, plagiarizing attention-seeker that he was back in 2014, he's developed into an altruistic artist with a strong moral compass, and he's someone to learn from.
Shia LaBeouf is turning things around this year
Many people rolled their eyes when he appeared to shade Steven Spielberg in an interview with Variety back in September, but that's nothing when you consider what the rest of his confessional told us about him. Since he was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct at Broadway's 'Cabaret' in 2014, he has given up alcohol.

British filmmaker Andrea Arnold follows her acclaimed arthouse hits Fish Tank and Wuthering Heights with a road trip across the American West. It's stunningly photographed by Robbie Ryan with a vivid sense of light, skin and expansive landscapes. And it's acted with an offhanded honesty by its young cast. But there's no real plot to speak of, and as the film unfolds over nearly three hours, it becomes naggingly clear that there isn't much of a point.
It centres on Star (Sasha Lane), an 18-year-old from Texas who is fed up with her miserable life caring for her younger siblings while her mother parties in local bars and her boyfriend acts like a caveman. So she runs off and joins the present-day equivalent of the circus: a travelling group of hard-partying teens selling magazines door-to-door. Their jaded leader Krystal (Riley Keough) doesn't care about the alcohol, sex and drugs as long as she's making money. And as Star settles in, she develops a crush on Jake (Shia LaBeouf), the guy training her on the job. As they move from town to town, Star has a series of small adventures that turn nasty, and could go much worse at any moment.
This potential danger is the only real tension in the film, although Star is oblivious to the fact that she continually puts herself in perilous situations. She learns nothing through all of these experiences, which is very frustrating for a movie audience to watch. This is a very simple young woman whose only dream is to get a trailer of her own and fill it with babies. Like all of these kids, she is living for the moment without any sense of responsibility or direction. This is a knowing comment on a generation raised in the longest recession in human history, but it leaves the movie feeling like it's spinning its wheels.

Over the past five years, Shia LaBeouf has gone from promising young actor to unemployable disaster and back again.
His off-screen antics very nearly put an end to his career, as filmmakers didn't want him on their sets. He's been arrested multiple times for alcohol-fuelled displays, fired from a Broadway play and accused of plagiarism in his work. So he decided to clean up his act. Now 30 and sober, he feels like he's getting back on track.
Shia LeBeouf in American Honey
His first big move is to star in Andrea Arnold's new movie American Honey, which took Cannes by storm this year. While making the film, Arnold deliberately refused to give LaBeouf anything more than a page of dialogue each morning as they shot the movie on the road over seven weeks.

This year really is a great year for female directors.
There were some who expressed pity for Shia LaBeouf when the actor revealed that he was going to watch all of his movies back to back, but it's just a shame it happened before this gem. For if anything could end a journey like that on a high note, it's 'American Honey'; an intense drama that has gripped most critics upon its opening at Cannes Film Festival 2016.
American Honey was generally a Cannes success
In summary, this comedic road-trip drama directed by the Academy Award winning Andrea Arnold (of 'Fish Tank' and 'Wuthering Heights' fame) has been praised for its cast, its vitality and its focus on feelings rather than story. Conversely, it has been attacked for its lack of plot, lengthiness and even naivete.

Citing "sources" including a grocery cashier, Us Weekly reported that LaBeouf has proposed to his girlfriend of four years.
Much of the media coverage that the Hollywood actor has enjoyed over the last year or so has focussed around various bizarre performance art pieces – such as his occupation of an elevator in Oxford for 24 hours in February, or his three consecutive days in a New York theatre watching all his old movies in chronological order.

The actor is no stranger to run ins with the law.
Actor Shia LaBeouf was reportedly arrested for ‘public intoxication’ on Friday night in Austin Texas. The Transformers star recently completed the terms of a plea deal from March, which required him to stay out of trouble with the law for six months.
Shia LaBeouf was reportedly arrested on Friday night.
According to TMZ, the incident happened at around 7:45 PM CT outside a bar on 6th Street. A witness told the site that Shia was either ‘extremely drunk or high on drugs when he ran down the street and jaywalked in front of police. They warned him not to do it but he continued, acting bizarrely.’

The bizarre artwork was doing the rounds on social media on Monday - what do you think?
Artist Brandon Bird has created thirteen portraits of the controversial Hollywood actor as every single one of the Doctors, and has put them up for sale as prints on his website. Bird made the completely fictional mash-up as a result of a challenge that he set himself last summer, having seen similar artwork at comic book conventions.
