    So sad to see what drugs can do to you, especially when you have so much money to buy them … I foresee disaster! So many people struggling to make a living and those with means trun to self destruction. Really sad.

    I am becoming quite concerned over Shia LaBeouf’s behavior during these past several months. Not sure if he craves more attention, or, like Amanda Bynes, needs professional help. In her case, her parents intervened. Not sure if Shia has anyone nearby that could assist him in trying to help with these issues. I feel he is a wonderful actor. I miss viewing him in movies of late. I also miss seeing Amanda Bynes in movies She was a favorite of mine, too.

    It’s been a few years now that every time there’s an article about him it’s clear that he’s struggling with something. I don’t want to say substances because we don’t know anything about it and there’s no evidence, it could be just in his mind.
    The way he behaves is just weird, even just the fact that he always wears the same clothes indicates there’s a problem. I’m not saying everybody should be consumeristic and never wear the same thing twice like the Kardashians, but- gosh!- the guy ALWAYS wears the same trousers and shoes and often the same tshirt for a few days in a row! It’s like he’s fixated on something, I don’t know…
    Also the roles that he’s been taking on recently are quite puzzling: I mean, I think I’m quite open minded, but when the only thing someone does is portraying obsessed-possessed characters, it kinda shows that he has a few obsessions on his own.

    It is possible that Shia is undiagnosed with mental illness. It is sad because it’s something that I see living with a brother. He can be very aggressive and abusive. It is NOT easy. My brother would also antagonize the police. Now that Shia has been arrested, the courts will mandate him to an evaluation.

    he is faking it… just trying to get attention and it’s working

    To the point of spitting on police and getting arrested? I don’t think so.

    zodd Says:


    Can’t say I feel sorry for anyone who chases a homeless person for the food they have. That homeless person on the other hand is the one who really needs help.
