"Take everything you want'".

Interestingly enough, LaBeouf plays tennis champ John McEnroe in his new film, Borg vs. McEnroe, who's also known for his fiery temper. It came from a place of self-centered delusion... "I need to take ownership of my sh** and clean up my side of the street a bit before I can go out there and work again, so I'm trying to stay creative and learn from my mistakes".

In a self-reflective interview that spanned from his conception to the most recent events in his life, LaBeouf talked about some of his highlights, past traumas, and regrets, along with some opportunities he passed on - including The Social Network.

LaBeouf is on camera saying sexually explicit, racially charged things about all of the officers he encounters, and calling them all by diminutive names. "They're not strategic. They're a struggling m--f-- showing his ass in front of the world".

Video footage of the incident, obtained by, showed LaBeouf verbally abusing the arresting officers, telling an African-American cop he was going to hell for the colour of his skin. "The truth is, in my desperation, I lost the plot".

Schwab told CNN he'd "never" been in a situation "where someone asked me to deflect when we absolutely knew something was awry". The previous day, Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf released a public statement warning the community that ICE was planning the sweep.

And he did give away his clothing, "The dude has a lot of my s**t". When Kanye went to LaBeouf's house to discuss possible art collaborations, he asked if he could have some of his clothes for a pop-up shop. "He goes to the money and pushes to try to get me in the movie, the money says no, and that's the end of me hanging out with Spike Lee for this film".

He and West haven't been in contact since the star called him out in an incoherent on-stage meltdown in November 2016, though LaBeouf said he has tried to reach out because he "f-king loves" West.

LaBeouf did a full profile interview with Esquire, admitting early on that he was extremely nervous even talking to the reporter, Eric Sullivan.

LaBeouf says his offscreen conduct made him a liability in Hollywood, and that it has become hard for him to book new roles, despite being hailed as the "Best Actor for the Buck" in the late aughts.

"He took all my fucking clothes", Shia said. He's going through a lot. In a stirring cover story profile with Esquire, the 31-year-old actor confronts his demons in a real way and reveals his curious connection to Kanye West. "And I don't know where he's at or what he's doing", he said.
