Shia LaBeouf on His Past: 'I'm Still Earning My Way Back'

Shia LeBeouf gets serious on the cover of Variety magazine’s new issue.

Here’s what the 30-year-old actor had to share:

On his sobriety: “You don’t touch it…alcohol, or any of that sh*t, will send you haywire. I can’t f*ck with none of it. I’ve got to keep my head low.”

On the Oscars and how he hasn’t been invited into the Academy: “The Oscars are about politics. I gotta earn my way back. It’s not about who is the best. I’m not that guy for a long time — for a long, long time….I’m good with that, though. Sometimes that sh*t is a curse.”

On his past antics: “People 
I respected — dudes I wanted to work 
with — just looked me in the eyes and said, ‘Life’s too short for this sh*t.’ I’m still earning my way back. I’m happy working.”

    There’s only one thing I can confidently say about Shia and that he’s extremely talented. I was so disappointed with the way he acted, got arrested, and constantly got into fights. All I want is for this guy to be healthy, enjoying his life, and to continue being on the big screen. This guy can act circles around some of the male stars currently in his age group. I also respect some of his art projects like him staying in the elevator or hitch hiking a ride cross country. Get high and drunk on life & art instead of the shit that can put you in jail.

    I’ve always had a soft spot for Shia. He’s such a good actor & so charismatic. I wish him the best.
