While a lot of us can't help but remember Shia LaBeouf  as a goofy teenager on Disney's Even Stevens, it's worth noting that he also had one hell of a heyday as an adult actor (please see: Transformers and Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps). Sure, his career may have taken a few weird turns over the past couple of years but there's no denying that Shia is still one very attractive dude, and he made his way back to superstardom in the WWII drama Fury with Brad Pitt  last year. We're looking back on Shia's hottest moments — before the plagiarism scandals , paper bag mask , performance art , and Cabaret arrest  — in celebration of his 29th birthday on Thursday. Keep reading to see them all now, and don't hesitate to let yourself swoon.
