Shia LaBeouf: My Hand Has Permanent Damage

Shia LaBeouf has opened up to EW about his hand injuries, which were caused from his car crash/DUI bust. Check out this snippet:

How is the hand now? I’m on my third surgery. That’s coming up in a week or two [from April 2]. My middle finger is still crooked as a f—ing noodle, so they’ve gotta straighten it out and put a screw in it… I imagine like two months and I’ll be back on my feet.

How much usage will you get back of your left hand? Probably about 80-something percent. I’ll be able to make a fist again. There’s a knuckle I’ll never be able to move again, but that’s probably the only permanent damage, other than the scarring.

    That’s awful, but things happen when you Drink and Drive. I’m glad he won’t lose more than 80% mobility of his hand…and good it won’t interfere with his acting…this must be a wakeup call for him.

    …………………………………..and JUSTICE for all, folks!!

  • taylorswiftfan

    He was NEVER charged for DUI and the accident was not deemed his fault. ANOTHER driver ran a red light.
    Give the guy a break.

  • Blah girls!

    poor shia!

  • athena

    #11, this kid has a break…he’s famous and he’s screwing it up for himself…#13…so, he just isn’t allowed to drive because of his two finger incident…RIGHT….he was under the influence of alcohol and it’s not like he hasn’t drink and driven before…wheither or not if it was his fault…the judge obviously thought he had a bigger role in this situation.

  • Nila

    Shia I swear on all things that are chocolate covered, IF YOU DON’T GET YOUR SHIT TOGETHER IT’S OVER BETWEEN US!!

  • Nila

    P.S. can you use the power left in your 8 working fingers to make sure New York I love You get released

  • carrey

    The best young actor out there!

    get well soon.

  • [☆I n F a m o u s☆]

    He deserves it 100%. He’s actually incredibly lucky to even be alive. How dare he complain about a crippled hand when someone’s family member could have died.


    To Hell with him, he got off lucky.

  • Georgia

    Hes not f*****g complaining, he’s been asked about it do obviously people wanna know about it, give him a break jesus.

  • agi

    ah shia …i am praying for your hand:(

    summer of shia.
    i’d report you, but jolie-dickring-jared wont take his thumb outta his ass and do shiit so fcuk you, eat a dcik and die slow, bish.

  • jen

    sometimes i wish shia just wouldn’t speak

  • lakers fan in boston

    damn, he’s had that cast on forever no, whats it gonna be, like a yr now?
    that’s what u get for driving like that shia

  • courto

    aw, that sucks.
    poor bby.

  • Queenoftrashin

    Permanent damage? Well, when a Ford F-150 rolls over on your hand that might happend.

  • Lo

    What ever the circumstances…no one deserves a crushed hand…

    I think he is very talented but young…no one is perfect…

  • JustME

    This is so sad, he is a kid still (very young) and he is already going though so much. I will keep him in my prayers. I feel so bad for this guy. You never know his hand could completely heal. I knew a girl who was only 2 years older than he is and she got into a near fatal car accident and was told that she would never speak again just to be comotose but now she is talking softly, so who knows maybe Shia will have that glimmer of hope and he will heal. No matter he still is very upbeat with a positive attitude considering! :) Hoping that he just takes it easy for a while! :)

  • ashley

    That sucks, but at least he still has 80% mobility. And the tiny bit of blindess…hmm..some days you’re the pigeon, others you’re the statue..poor kid.

  • ThinkAboutIt!

    To all of you people who are being so damn heartless to this guy, Shia.
    Yeah I am totally against drinking and driving, but that is not what happened here Shia got hit by some jack @ss who ran a red. Now shia is part crippled and this guy may not be able to hold his baby down the road when he does have kids if he does have kids. $hit cut this guy some slack okay, can you imagine what it would be like if you were not able to hold your baby or do the things that you once did all because some jack@ss was in a hurry and ran a red. Damn think about! Get better soon Shia and hang in there!

  • Martina

    We all know drinking and driving is wrong no matter what. Shia is intelligent and surely this was an eye opening experience for him. However, it sucks for anyone who got hurt including him. Especially with any kind of permanent damage. He is human remember? What I wonder is why is it that HE was hit yet nobody makes comments about the idiot who did it? All we hear about is what everyone thinks Shia did wrong. Wassup with that people? I think he’s amazing and admire him. He’s worked his ass off to get where he is and considering the life he came from, that’s really something! He’s a talented guy and sooooooo beautiful! You have the sweetest face I’ve ever seen Shia and a smile that could melt an igloo! Cheers honey!! Heal well!

  • Hey222

    he wasnt drinking and driving those charges were dropped….poor shia i love u!
