He was joined by director Alma Har’el as well as his cast mates Laura San Giacomo, FKA Twigs, Clifton Collins Jr., Byron Bowers, Noah Jupe and Craig Stark.

The film, which Shia wrote and starred in, follows Shia‘s life at the height of his Disney fame and his strained relationship with his alcoholic father.

“It’s strange to fetishize your pain and make a product out of it. And you feel guilty about that. It felt very selfish. This whole thing felt very selfish. I never went into this thinking, ‘Oh let me f**ing help people.’ That wasn’t my goal. I was falling apart,” Shia said on stage, according to Variety.

Shia also added that since the film’s wrap, he has reconnected with his father for the first time in over six years.
