Shia LaBeouf Talks About Drinking in Details Magazine

Shia Talks About Not Knowing "How to Have One Drink"

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.

It is absolutely correct that the drug addiction is crime however the peoples are using different types of drug in form of alcohol. Well I don’t think I’m alcoholic or dependant - yet. But I’m surely approaching that and would love to stop. I drink every weekend and sometimes 3 times during the week. I drink and party with friends, and when I’m sober I’m a bore and useless with women. When drunk I’m confident, and a player! I’d love to stop completely but I need to build my social skills and confidence when sober. Anyone out there ever been on the same boat and got out?. Great Post i look forward to reading more!

First off, this is not a creepy picture..he looks nice. And secondly, for people who said 'just don't drink' if it's a problem...I thought people were more understanding of drinking problems now. He has a great chance of being an addict because of his fathers' own problems, and maybe he is. But didn't you learn anything from Joey on the Real World? People think anyone can control their drinking sooo easily, and it's just not the case sometimes. I can't say it all in a comment, but that pisses me off.

This is really sad. I hope he gets his act together. I think he'll be fine especially since acknowledging the problem is half the battle. Let's keep him our thoughts.

Shia has been attending AA meetings with his dad for 12 years. He knows better. He was NOT at fault for the accident.. that was made official by an announcement from the LA Sheriff's office. The investigation revealed that Shia was making a LEGAL left turn when the driver of the other car drove through a solid red light and hit his truck broadside so hard it rolled it twice. BUT he is STILL charged with misdemeanor DUI and will be arraigned in August. He is not off the hook. Just not liable to lawsuits or any additional charges in conjecture with the DUI as he would have been had the accident been his fault.

It WAS a selfish act, I completely agree with that statement. I don't think however anyone is blaming the parents, I just think it was more explanation about how he got to where he is. That said, look at all the people whose parents are alcoholics and come out on the other side as adults without a single vice. It happens all the time. It depends on the individual and the choices THEY make for THEMSELVES. Period.

Shia needs to go to AA or some type of Alcoholism class. He obviously knows he has a problem. Why not go and get educated and learn some tools to use to stop before it gets worse.

Is this kid even old enough to drink? I don't really care for the LeBeouf all that much.

vivi, it has been proven that alcoholism runs in families and can be inherited. I don't think anyone is blaming their parents, but Shia was stating that his dad doing what he did with him...drinking and smoking...wasn't a good thing. I don't think he was blaming his dad at all for his own actions. he admitted he doesn't know how to just have one drink. That is a definite sign of being out of control.

PLEASE grow up! lets blame our parents for our bullshit addictive habits! sorry, but drink-drive IS SELFISH. this guy was driving a block from my place, could see in person the condition of his car. every day i have to pray to not get hit my a selfish person in traffic. sorry, but he is soooo lucky to make tons of money and again selfish enough to not respect other pp. SHAME ON YOU!

usatoday is reporting that the other driver did run a red light causing the crash, but maybe if he hadn't been drinking in the first place it wouldn't have happened.

he was still driving drunk and maybe if he wasn't there would not have been an accident.

LAPD reported that they have strong evidence that the other driver was running a red light, so yes, he was not at fault.

I heard the accident wasn't his fault and that the other driver ran a red light, is that true? if so he just got really lucky

gorgeous! i'll have to pick this magazine up. he needs to just not drink at all especially knowing it runs in the family, but knowing from first hand experience, my sister was killed while drunk, and stuggled w/alcholism for years, it isn't always as easy as, just don't drink. quit honestly, i don't get the lure of alchohol, i always feel like butt the next day. good luck shia. hope you heal up quick.

Shia my love...stop drinking! get yourself some AA counseling. Alcoholism obviously runs in the family (as it does mine) so you might just need to NOT DRINK! I absolutely love this guy...he is talented and absolutely breathtaking to look at. I hope he learned his lesson and quits the drink!! I know all too much about alcoholism (thx to my dad and grandpa)....its going to take him admitting he has a problem and doing something about it. Too bad it had to happen as the result of an accident where people could have been killed...including himself.
