His first name is Szaja, a Polish translation of the Hebrew Yeshayahu (Isaiah), which means “God is salvation” and his middle name is his mother’s maiden name. LaBeouf’s parents have been described as hippies.

 

LaBeouf’s father was a drug addict who abused him. After his parents divorced, LaBeouf grew up with his mother in Los Angeles’ Echo Park neighbourhood. He formally attended Los Angeles’ 32nd Street Visual and Performing Arts Magnet and Alexander Hamilton High School, though he received the majority of his education from on-set tutors. When he was ten years old, LaBeouf began performing stand-up at comedy clubs. In the first phone call, he pretended to be his own manager and found an agent through the Yellow Pages.

Career

Shia LaBeouf made a series of strange public appearances in February 2014. He once walked the red carpet wearing a paper bag over his face with the words “I am not famous anymore.” written on it. No one knew what his true intentions were. Some speculated that it was a piece of performance art. These actions turned out to be a performance art piece created by LaBeouf, British artist and author Luke Turner, and Finnish artist Nastja Säde Rönkkö as a meditation on celebrity and vulnerability. LaBeouf, Rönkkö, and Turner have collaborated on a number of high-profile performance art projects since then, including #IAMSORRY (2014), #ALLMYMOVIES (2015), #TOUCHMYSOUL (2015), #TAKEMEANYWHERE (2016), and HEWILLNOTDIVIDE.US (2017–present).

Plagiarism Concerns

Shia was accused of plagiarism in late 2013 after releasing the short film “Howard Cantour.com,” on the internet. Several bloggers noticed how similar the film was to a 2007 comic called “Justin M. Damiano,” by Ghost World creator Dan Clowes shortly after it was released online. Shia took the film down and stated that he had no intention of copying Clowes’ work. He claimed that he was “inspired” by him and that he “got lost in the creative process.”

 

Since the plagiarism of Clowe’s work was discovered, LaBeouf’s other work has been scrutinised. “Let’s Fucking Party” and “Stale N Mate,” two graphic novels by Shia LaBeouf, were plagiarised from Benoît Duteurtre’s “The Little Girl and the Cigarette” and Charles Bukowski’s “Assault,” respectively.

 

In early 2014, LaBeouf discussed the plagiarism allegations levelled against him. He stated that he believed copyright laws were too restrictive, preventing ideas from flowing freely. He then took to Twitter to announce his next project, Daniel Boring, a clear reference to Clowes’ other comic, David Boring. Furthermore, the story’s description was entirely plagiarised from Clowes. Clowes’ attorneys sent LaBoeuf a cease-and-desist letter. It was shared on Twitter by Shia.

 

Private Life

On the set of “Nymphomaniac in 2012.” in 2012, LaBeouf met English actress Mia Goth. Later on, the two became romantically involved. An Elvis impersonator pretended to marry the couple in Las Vegas.
