Shia LaBeouf's Hand Will Never Fully Recover

Shia LaBeouf Is Still Broken and Needs Some Fan Love

Shia LaBeouf has had a rough year since his serious car crash last Summer, which eventually made him lose his license. He's finally got some downtime to recover between films, but apparently the hand he hurt in the accident will never fully heal. In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, the actor talks about his progress, his embarrassment over last Summer, and how sometimes you just have to dust yourself off and keep moving forward. Here are highlights:

  • On how much usage he'll regain in his hand: "Probably about 80-something percent. I'll be able to make a fist again. There's a knuckle I'll never be able to move again, but that's probably the only permanent damage, other than the scarring."
  • On getting back to work on Transformers 2: "When I came back it was just out of the guilt that I had. I pride myself on my professionalism, and this is the first issue I've ever had where I wasn't able to come to set, and it's f---ing heartbreaking when you gotta look at your crew. You know, what can you do? You just gotta grab your balls and move forward. There's nothing else to do. The thing that cut deep to the core of me was knowing that there were 65 human beings [in the crew] who are like family to me, waiting for me to come back. They were sitting on their asses doing nothing because of my . . . you know, my situation. It's the most intense s--- I've ever dealt with, and am still dealing with. I mean, if people look at me like a drunk a--hole, that's okay. But I know my family looks at me like a whole different person, and I know my crew respects me immensely. And at the end of the day, I can't do much more."
  • On recovering from his initial surgery: The first voice I heard when I came out of surgery was Harrison's. Harrison [Ford] called me on the phone and said, "Hey, are you okay?" I said, "Yeah, I'm good." He said, "Well, then you need to get back to work." I said, "Are you serious?" He said, "That's the way this cookie crumbles." So I went back to work. The show doesn't stop for anybody.

Poor Shia — it sounds like he's moving on but will have a permanent reminder of the lesson he learned. We may not be able to fix his broken hand, but we can show him a little bit of support by voting for him in the Pop 100.

Poor kid. At least he still has 80% mobility. How can you not respect him for being so professional. And that bit of blindness? That's crazy..some days you're just s.o.l.

Huh. I seem to have a lot more respect for him after reading this. I may have changed my mind about him.

I like that he considers his crew. He seems to be genuinely sorry and I expect that he won't make this mistake again. He does have talent. (I was a big fan of 'Louis Stevens' back in the day. :P) Good luck to him.

Poor kid, but i admire that he'd care so much for the crew and in the end it will all be good. I feel bad for his hand though. Oh and yes he is cute

I feel bad for him. He made a mistake and it was a big one. And he is still facing the consequences. I had a feeling his hand was still messed up but not this badly. I think that Shia is a good person who just made a mistake and it sucks that he had to go through it in front of the whole world.

well it's good that he's got that strong work ethic - it's not always the case in hollywood these days and surprisingly it makes me like him just a bit more. i don't know - i kind of feel sorry for the kid to have had that happen and to be permanently suffering from it.

Oh dear... I seriously hope that he has learned from everything that happened. Its great that he has a good worth ethic. His comment on grabbing balls and moving forward made me laugh. Oh the imagery. The imagery.
