Shia LaBeouf Hospitalized After Serious Head Injury

shia labeouf

Don’t worry, he’s okay now (sorta). But Shia LaBeouf had a rough time on the set of his new movie, American Honey, when he cut his head really badly while performing a stunt which required to crash through a glass window. Except something went badly wrong, and he had to be rushed to a local hospital instead.

We’re told LaBeouf was taken to a nearby hospital to treat cuts to the left side of his head and his right index finger.

He was bandaged up — stitched and stapled — and sent home.

A rep for Shia tells TMZ, “Shia LaBeouf sustained minimal injuries late last night on the set of his current film, ‘American Honey.’ As protocol, production sought out medical attention and Shia received stitches on his hand and for a laceration on his head. He is due back on set [Thursday].”

I know actors like to be adventurous and do their own stunts, and also that even professional stunt people aren’t immune to injuries, but hell to the no would I be doing stunts like THIS if I was an actor. I’d be like, bring in the stunt double, please!

In any case, glad to hear the dude is doing okay. That must have really hurt! Not as much as that haircut’s hurting me, but close enough.

Shia LaBeouf Gives Motivational Speech… For 30 Minutes

shia labeouf

I don’t really understand what Shia LaBeouf is doing at any given time, so I didn’t really expect to “get” what he’s going for with his new 30 minute long motivational video, shot in front of a green screen, that was filmed as part of something called the #Introductions video project with a bunch of London students.

In the video, Shia gives words of wisdom and shouts “JUST DO IT!” over and over again like some belligerent Nikes spokesman and it’s all very strange. But before I spoil too much, I think I just need to let you enjoy it for what it is:

Well, that was certainly something.

Shia LaBeouf has a rat tail now

shia labeouf

Shia LaBeouf has, rather thankfully, been keeping a low profile as of late. The last we heard from him were his strange allegations of being raped during his performance art show in LA last year, but that whole thing seems to have dissipated into thin air as suddenly as it appeared, so know. Now, he’s appeared publicly again and the only bit of news there is to report is major: Shia has a rat tail now.

shia labeouf girlfriend

Shia and his girlfriend Mia Goth hung around San Fernando Valley this week and Shia sported his sweet new ‘do – AND a very early ’90s trashy eyebrow piercing. He’s really got a full look going on here. I’m really not sure what to make of any of it, to be honest, but maybe this is making a comeback? LOL, just kidding (I hope).

Shia LaBeouf says he was raped by a woman during his #IAMSORRY performance art piece

shia labeouf

I’m not really sure what to make of this one, but here goes nothing. You know how Shia LaBeouf did that whole #IAMSORRY performance art thing in Los Angeles back in February, where he sat in a chair with a paper bag over his head and let people say and do whatever they wanted in the room with him? Well, it seems now he’s saying that he was stripped and raped by a woman during that time – a revelation he made in an email interview with a journalist from Dazed, apparently.

Did any experiences stand out to you as particularly moving or unsettling?

Shia LaBeouf: One woman who came with her boyfriend, who was outside the door when this happened, whipped my legs for ten minutes and then stripped my clothing and proceeded to rape me… There were hundreds of people in line when she walked out with dishevelled hair and smudged lipstick. It was no good, not just for me but her man as well. On top of that my girl was in line to see me, because it was Valentine’s Day and I was living in the gallery for the duration of the event – we were separated for five days, no communication. So it really hurt her as well, as I guess the news of it travelled through the line. When she came in she asked for an explanation, and I couldn’t speak, so we both sat with this unexplained trauma silently. It was painful.

Huh. Well, it would be wrong of me to discount accusations like these just because they came from a man, or just because they came from someone who has a history of being incredibly mentally unstable and has a penchant for lying. It all just seems so bizarre, so nonchalant, and I kinda can’t see this actually happening. Performance art or not, you don’t just sit there while someone is raping you. There are limitations.

This whole thing is far too complicated for me to even delve into, so I’ll just leave this story with you, but… like, WHAT?

Shia LaBeouf has found God and it saved his life

shia labeouf

I don’t… really even know where to begin with Shia LaBeouf‘s brand of insanity. He’s another one in desperate need of a 5150 hold, but for some reason, that dubious honour tends to fall on crazy female celebrities more than male. Anyhow, Shia’s totally fine now! He’s back on track and that’s all because he found God while he was shooting Fury with Brad Pitt and co.

From Interview:

“I’ve been a runner my whole life, running from myself. Whether to movies or drinking and drugging or f—ing calamity or whatever it is, I’ve always been running. I’m a dude who loves delusion. It’s why I love being an actor – I never have to actually look at myself or be faced with my s— or take responsibility.”

“I found God doing Fury,” he says. “I became a Christian man, and not in a f—ing bulls— way – in a very real way. I could have just said the prayers that were on the page. But it was a real thing that really saved me. And you can’t identify unless you’re really going through it. It’s a full-blown exchange of heart, a surrender of control.”

I have no problem with whatever faith anyone follows – what you believe and whatever helps get you through the shitty days we can have sometimes is something I’m all for. However, an honest question: why do people in this kinda position – addicts, derelicts, the mentally ill – ALWAYS go God-crazy?

The best thing this guy can do is, you know, leave the spotlight and the industry. Living that kind of life would make a lot of people crazy, but you need enough self-preservation to get yourself out of it to save your own life.

Shia LaBeouf is totally okay now that he’s been to jail

shia labeouf ellen degeneres

I know I said Shia LaBeouf probably threw that smoke bomb into Bar Pitti over the weekend, but according to an appearance he made on The Ellen DeGeneres Show that aired on Friday, he’s totally fine now! He just had a few small “hiccups” and now he’s back to his old self (via Huffington Post):

“I went through like an existential crisis … I had some hiccups, some judgement errors,” LaBeouf said.

After recalling the “Nymphomaniac” premiere — where LaBeouf wore a paper bag over his head reading “I am not famous anymore” — and his #IAMSORRY exhibit, where he invited people to read mean tweets about him and even use an “Indiana Jones whip” or pliers on him, the actor explained that he has something in common with the cyber bullies who sought a reaction from him.

“I got in this [entertainment] industry because I had this void. I’m a kid of abandonment and I thought somehow being a good actor would fill that void. I think we suffer from the same thing, which is just a lack of attention and love,” he said.

The star told DeGeneres that his 24-hour stint in jail is what eventually snapped him out of his behavior, and apologized for spitting on a cop, which triggered his arrest.

Huh. Well, a night or two in jail will make anyone contemplate their life choices, I suppose, but I don’t for one second think that’s the end of Shia’s craziness – especially considering I think much of it is rooted in mental illness, which can’t just be switched off whenever you feel like it. I do feel sorta bad for him after reading that, though – he obviously has some amount of cognizance about what’s going on with himself. Huh, go figure.

Shia LaBeouf is Einstein to one crazy ass fan

shia labeouf

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.
