Nagbabalik sa pag-arte ang kontrobersyal Hollywood actor na si Shia LaBeouf via Honey Boy na available for streaming via Amazon.
Isa si Shia na sumikat na child actor na nagsimula sa Disney Channel sa show na Even Stevens.
Nabigyan ng big break sa Hollywood si Shia nang gawin niya ang mga pelikulang Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull, Disturbia, Eagle Eye at ang Transformer film series.
Pero ang biglang pagsikat ni Shia ang siyang nakasira sa kanya at sa pagsasama ng kanyang pamilya.
“All the pressure was on me to keep the money coming in. I thought if I had more money, there'd be no fighting between my parents. They split when I was five. Working was an opportunity to be able to minimize the drama in my life.”
Habang tumagal ay nakilalang bad boy of Hollywood si Shia. Maraming film roles ang pinakawalan niya dahil sa kanyang attitude, kabilang na rito ang lead roles sa mga pelikulang The Social Network (that went to Jesse Eigenberg), 127 Hours (that went to James Franco) and The Bourne Identity series (that went to Matt Damon).
Inamin ni Shia, he struggled with alcoholism, unaware that it was a coping mechanism for the post-traumatic stress disorder that he developed in his childhood.
Ito ang naging dahilan ng kanyang pagwawala noon sa New York nang i-interrupt niya ang isang Broadway musical at nang mag-away sila ng kanyang girlfriend na si Mia habang ginagawa nila ang pelikulang Nymphomaniac Vol. 1.
Ilang beses din siyang inaresto at nakunan ng mugshot. Isa sa naging kaso niya was in New York for “peeing in public.”
Nagpa-rehab si Shia pero nahirapan daw siyang makisama sa maraming tao.
“I'm feeling like people on set think I'm a racist, no, believe I'm a racist and I'm feeling all of that and don't want to be alive. And I'm on this set, can't look anybody in the eyes.”
Shia says that this was when he realized he'd hit his rock bottom. Malaki na raw ang pinagbago niya. He stopped drinking entirely and hasn't touched a drop of alcohol since.
Unti-unti na rin daw siyang nakaka-cope sa kanyang sakit na PSTD.
"It was the first time I'd been told I had PSTD. I just thought I was an alcoholic, like a true blue drunk and I needed to deal with that. I knew it was an issue but didn't know there was this extra whole other thing that was hindering my ability to have any peace in my life and my ability to deal with people."
