Biggest Headlines of 2008: Shia's Dramatic Year

Biggest Headlines of 2008: Shia's Dramatic Year

We've been counting down the most shocking headlines of 2008, and we'll be revealing more throughout the month of December. We hope you enjoy this look back at some of the posts and stories that created the most buzz throughout the year.

Shia LaBeouf hit the ground running in 2008, quickly scoring his second Vanity Fair cover and shooting Eagle Eye. He hit a snag when a warrant for his arrest went out after he was a no-show in court for a smoking violation, but all was forgiven and forgotten in the huge success of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Unfortunately, things got crazier for Shia as he headed into the Summer months. In late July, he was involved in a scary car accident and arrested under suspicion of DUI.

The charges were eventually dropped, but Shia was left with a very serious hand injury and had to step off the set of Transformers 2 for a few weeks. More recently the hand injury also made him drop out of another movie, though he's still picking up high-profile projects. On the more personal side of things, the media implicated him as part of Adrian Grenier's breakup with Isabel Lucas, since Isabel was the only other passenger in Shia's truck at the time of the crash. Eventually Shia got back to work and helped Eagle Eye score big at the box office, though he found himself injured yet again after a mishap on set left him with stitches on his eye. Luckily, Shia made it all the way through 2008 without another mugshot and in one piece, but hopefully he's learned a few lessons to take with him into 2009.

Always and forever Shia will be my boy! There's just something about him that makes him so relatable (sp?) and yet he's still got that Movie star spark.

OMG!! I just viewed the link that watermeloncandy posted! Now I know why I am crushing on him now and hated him back when Even Stevens was out! LoL But I definetly did think he was funny back then and of course still do. That picture brings back memories from 10 years ago. DAMN! It's been that long?! Anywho! Shia has had a tragic year with his accident and all but he will definetly bounce back with all of his great roles and amazing movies and hopefully all of this will go away! And to JamieLeah, the accident wasn't even his fault! Some moron was going 70 through a red light and hit Shia and flipped his truck twice from the impact of the hit and lied about it too and later got busted for it thank god! Why don't you try and not judge people by one small incident! Other celebs have done a shitload worse than what Shia has been through! Leave him the fuck alone! Anyway, thanks Popsugar for the amazingly HOT'N'SEXY pics of Shia!! :D I will love him no matter what stupid things he does and doesn't do!! I'm by your side 100% baby and I love you!! ;) Best wishes into 2009 and keep up the good work my love!

I think these kids need to learn how to be adults before they can make movies. Hollywood really screws with their brains and makes them horrible human beings. They all seem like they have such potential and then they get DUIs and are doing drugs and getting into car accidents. These are things that they probably wouldn't be doing if they knew their would be repercussions at work for their behavior but there isn't.

Yeah Shia was on Disney Channel, not Nickelodeon. I loved him on Even Stevens, but I never thought that he would be a huge star. I'm glad he is doing well though! I hope he stays out of trouble and has a lot of success in his future.

Ah my beloved Cougar Bait.. what a year!! Shia will be fine..he is the Teflon Kid.. And he has learned his lessons and limits and has a good (though hot) head on his shoulders and has been attending AA for over 10 years with his Dad (recovering drug addict)..he knows the score. And I love that he is skewed more to being an actor then a celeb..modest house in Burbank..modest car..still skateboards to the corner store for an AZ Tea even though you know he made bank this year. :) Here is hoping the hand heals and he gets full range of motion back after this surgery..and that he manages to stay in Y:The Last Man! He MUST be Yorick!!

shia will be fine. he has a good head on his shoulders, he's just messed up a couple times. people do far worse, it's just because he is in the spotlight that his mistakes get magnified. i am confident he will win an oscar one day! <3
