Shia LaBeouf Analyzed by James Franco in New Essay

Shia LaBeouf and his girlfriend Mia Goth stock up on groceries at Gelson’s on Sunday (February 23) in Van Nuys, Calif.

The 27-year-old actor was just analyzed by James Franco in a piece he wrote for the New York Times.

“This behavior could be a sign of many things, from a nervous breakdown to mere youthful recklessness,” James wrote. “For Mr. LaBeouf‘s sake I hope it is nothing serious. Indeed I hope – and, yes, I know that this idea has pretentious or just plain ridiculous overtones – that his actions are intended as a piece of performance art, one in which a young man in a very public profession tries to reclaim his public persona.”

FYI: Mia is wearing Levi’s jeans.

    James Franco is quite possibly a pseudo-intellectual.
    Shia and Mia look like a homeless couple. Nothing bad on homeless people but they simply look like they haven’t a place to wash or sleep properly.

  • ForMe

    Mia looks like she’s 12,which is creepy on it’s own.

    @Can’t Stand It:
    I have to agree with you – he is trying to do too many things and should concentrate on one area to focus on.

  • mel

    Thanks James, I’m really going to take what you’ve said on board. WT actual F?

  • allison

    What a silly stupid tabloid type opinion piece. Another example that NY Times is no longer the paper of record.

  • Living in a box

    The article appears on New York Times?

  • Isabel

    To be fair, if there’s one actor who can commiserate with Shia over pretentiousness, it’s James.

  • Rowen

    dilettante analyzes dilettante. let me grab the popcorn.

  • Sam

    What analysis is required? Shia is a no talent douche whose ‘acting’ career has been longer than his talent or personality deserve

  • Bella

    Why would he write about a colleague? What makes him so different that he has the right to judge and analyze a living person? What a douche.

  • irene

    Shia is beautiful!!

  • Eyebrows

    Oooh that girl could use a couple of eyebrows. And Shia is like the new Tom Cruise, same hysterical craziness.

  • Jayden

    Whoa! His gal! Her face! Did she smack flat into a wall? She looks touched in the head.

  • :)

    He always seems so sweet when he’s out with a girl. Pushing carts, walking next to her, etc

  • Much Luv To Shia

    Don’t want to kick a basically good kid down. He may be very confused. He had big fame with a lot of work, but now things have calmed. Fame is like that. Ups and downs. However, Shia is not a bad person. He’s not doing particularly bad things in public like Bieber and Miley. He’s a regular person and I hope that if he needs help dealing with his life, he gets it. There is help for people. You don’t have to spiral out of control. Just ask for it. Wish him a wonderful life and continued success in his career and personal life. At least he didn’t go chasing after a famous model or some other well-known starlet. That says a lot about his character. I think he really is in love with his girl and that’s sweet.

  • Much Luv To Shia

    @Bella: There have been other stars who worked with Franco and DID NOT like him at all.

  • :)

    @muchluvtoShia I wouldn’t say his work has calmed. He has done like 6 movies/short films in the past 2 years. He is working on Rock the Kasbah last I heard. Hollywood has not had many great movies coming out of it these past few years. Movie ticket sales are down, and I believe the real reason is due to the content and actors in the films. Yes, there are good actors in Hollywood but it seems talent is not a requirement anymore. Many actors are now picked based on scandals and political agendas they push

  • The Hand

    Vassily Kandinsky only painted one good painting.

    @ thehand you mean wassily?

  • David Faggot

    Shia is not the problem here .. it is Mia Goth.. she is twisting his mind, I can tell that from 100 miles away. She seems like a twisted mental manipulator.
