This weekend, Shia LaBeouf disappointed us with his idiotic and scary car accident and arrest on suspicion of DUI. Most of you don't think he'll learn his lesson, but at least one witness account says that after being told to flee the scene, Shia knew he needed to stick around and deal with the consequences. In a oddly well-timed newly released interview with Details, Shia reveals how using drinking to bond with his father had already taught him about his own substance control issues. He said:
"We would drink together and smoke together . . . and it's just a bad deal. It's not something that is conducive to being a role model—no iconic actors that I know of have problems like that. And I don't know how to do it like a gentleman. I don't know how to have one drink."
Shia's unconventional upbringing always seems to have left him with some complexes — hence his ability to get arrested for just about anything — and, underneath his cute exterior, a little troubled.
Thankfully, Shia is currently recovering from surgery, and neither his passenger, Transformers 2 costar Isabel Lucas, nor the driver of the other car were badly injured. I sincerely hope that Shia does learn from his big mistake and somehow manages to deal with his own possible demons in the process.
