Shia LaBeouf Calls Man Who Was Punched for Looking Like Him

Shia LaBeouf and his rumored fiancee Mia Goth hold hands while going to lunch together on Wednesday (April 27) in Studio City, Calif.

The 29-year-old actor made headlines earlier this week after a New York City man was punched in the face just for looking like the star.

“wanna thank the guy who randomly decided he needed to hit me last night. ‘this happened bc you look exactly like Shia labeouf’. Well sir you boosted my self esteem bc he’s p hot,” Mario Licato captioned an Instagram photo of his black eye.

Shia then called up Mario on the phone and left him a long voicemail, which was recounted in an article for Cosmopolitan.

“It was a pretty long voicemail,” Mario said. “He was like, ‘Hey, this is Shia LaBeouf … I just read an article that you were punched in the face because you look like me?’ And he was like, ‘Aw, man. That sucks. I’m so sorry. But I get it. It’s happened to me before.’ And then he was like, ‘I don’t know. I wish I was in New York. I’d come bring you soup.’ He was just like, ‘This sucks. I don’t even know what to say. I’m sorry. People are just crazy. Just because you look like me?’ I was obviously laughing the whole time. And then he was like, ‘Here’s my phone number. Don’t give it to anybody. Please, please, call me back. Call me back if you want to. We could chat. Let’s giggle over this. Maybe there’s a silver lining in all this. But call me back.’ And then he was like, ‘And once again, this is Shia LaBeouf, the guy you got hit for looking like. And yeah, man, I’m sorry. I’m just really sorry.’ And he was like ‘Keep your head up, G.’ And that was it.”

    That is absolutely horrible. The poor guy. Who in the world thinks they have the right to punch someone just because they’re a celebrity that they don’t like? The guy doesn’t even look a thing like Shia LaBeouf! I hope the person who punched him gets arrested and charged. That sucks big time. Imagine walking down the street and someone says you look like a celebrity and then punches you in the face. That just makes my blood boil.
