Shia LaBeouf is Einstein to one crazy ass fan

Shia LaBeouf is certainly not the portrait of mental and emotional stability, but a deranged fan who thinks he’s Einstein and threatened to blow up his house sorta takes the cake here.

From TMZ:

Shia just got a restraining order against Graciela Nahle … who apparently showed up at his house eating watermelon on the driveway and when the actor asked her to leave she screamed, “I am going to blow up your house! I am going to blow up the world! You are Albert Einstein and we belong together.”

According to the docs — obtained by TMZ — Nahle showed up at Shia’s house 3 times and he fears for his safety.

She’s been a thorn in Shia’s side for months, once showing up with an infant in her arms … claiming to have been best buds in a previous incarnation.

She’s been previously arrested for making criminal threats against the actor.

Nahle has been ordered to stay 100 yards clear of Shia.

Uh… why? Like, just why to the whole thing? I understand there are a lot of psychos in the world, but when it’s something this extreme – that someone claims she thinks Shia LaBeouf, of all people, is actually Albert Einstein (why Einstein?) and she’s going to blow up his house so that they can be together… that just comes off as some of Shia’s performance art to me. I’m not saying that’s what it is since clearly the police got involved – not that that means anything – but I don’t know, it’s all just too bizarre. I wouldn’t be surprised if Shia writes a long, artsy Twitter message about it all sometime soon.

Mel Gibson’s heart goes out to Shia LaBeouf

Yep, you read that right – Mel Gibson has a heart! Of course he sympathizes with Shia LaBeouf. Both of them are batshit insane with nary a thread holding them to the reality of this world. One is a Jew-hating wife beater and the other is a drunk lunatic with an inflated sense of his artistic self, and yet they have more in common than you might think, and Mel knows how difficult it must be for the younger actor.

From Indiewire (via Huffington Post):

“When I see someone like Shia LaBeouf with the bag on his head and stuff, my heart goes out to the poor guy. I think he’s suffering in some way,” Gibson said.

Gibson was referring to an incident in February when LaBeouf showed up to the “Nymphomaniac” premiere with a bag over his head that read “I am not famous anymore.” LaBeouf’s more recent troubles include getting kicked out of a Broadway play and subsequently being arrested by New York police.

“People are in line to sort of point the finger at him and say that he’s this, that, or the other. It’s easy to judge. But I’m sure he’s going through some kind of personal, very painful, cathartic thing that he has to exorcise and get out there,” Gibson continued.

But Gibson is hopeful that LaBeouf will turn his life around.

“He’ll probably play it out and come back … He’ll be all right. I actually like the kid. I think he’s good.”

I dunno, I think Shia might turn his life around, but it will come at the cost of any public career he may have had. The guy is off the map, and it’s probably better that way. Mental illness and show business really do not mix. Mel should know (and yet he’s still making movies).

Shia LaBeouf is off to rehab after his Broadway arrest

Shia LaBeouf has been going through some hard times lately, culminating in his arrest at a Broadway performance of Cabaret last weekend. His behaviour that day was so bizarre, many questioned whether he has some serious substance abuse issues. It seems like that was a pretty fair question to ask, as he’s now reportedly checked into rehab for treatment.

From The Independent:

LaBeouf was allegedly driven from his home to a private clinic by someone believed to be from the rehab facility. Earlier that day, he was seen carrying a the Alcoholics Anonymous Big Blue Book, X17 reports.

“Shia was nervous; he didn’t look good all morning,” said X17’s photographer. “He was looking down and wasn’t even talking to his driver. It looked like he didn’t want to do it, but he knew he had to.”

Yeah, okay – you don’t act that insane when it’s just alcohol, sorry. This dude has some narcotics issues, I’d say. Hope he gets help with them so he can go back to being just a normal dickhead instead of an insane one.
