Shia LaBeouf


Shia Saide LaBeouf was born on June 11, 1986 in Los Angeles, California. He grew up as the childhood star of the Disney Channel series 'Even Stevens'. He is the only child of Jeffrey LaBeouf, a former mime and rodeo clown and Shayna Saide, a dancer and ballerina. LaBeouf comes from a family of five generations of performers and acting seemed to come naturally to him.

LaBeouf describes his parents as hippies, and when he was ten, he had his first taste of marijuana with his father. Surprisingly, he found himself an agent right out of the Yellow Pages after doing a stand-up act for her.

Hollywood Calling
LaBeouf has mentioned to the press that he chose to become an actor not because of his talent but because his family was broke. He started his career playing Louis Stevens in the Disney Channel weekly program 'Even Stevens'. LaBeouf was awarded a Daytime Emmy Award for his role. He also appeared in sketch shows on 'The Tonight Show' with Jay Leno around the same time. In 2003, he was a part of another Disney production 'Holes' as Stanley. He acted opposite Sigourney Weaver, Jon Voight, and Tim Blake Nelson. The film was a box office hit and suddenly everyone knew who Shia LaBeouf was. That same year, he was featured on the HBO documentary show Project Greenlight that chronicled the making of 'The Battle of Shaker Heights'.

In 2005, LaBeouf appeared in 'Constantine' opposite Keanu Reeves and Rachel Weisz. He also had an insignificant role in 'I, Robot' (2004). In 2006, LaBeouf was seen in the drama 'Bobby', in which he did his first nude scene. LaBeouf came with 'Disturbia,' 2007 where he plays a teenager under house arrest.

LaBeouf attended 32nd Street Visual and Performing Arts Magnet in Los Angeles.
He bought his own house at the age of eighteen.
He was accepted into Yale University but declined later.

He won the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Performer in a Children's Series 'Even Stevens' (2000).
He won the Hollywood Film Award for 'Bobby' (2006).

Time to be an actor.

Dear Shia; I really really don't like seeing people getting duped online by an impersonator pretending to be you. If it's determined you are not on Google's Plus, I can warn all his followers, and prevent potential fraud.

Posted by MB (2011-08-29) 3292

Dear Shia;

Please let me know if you are on Googles Plus, so I can warn others if an impostor is pretending to be you. I don't like to see people getting ripped-off or duped; pretending to be you by using your name. I just want to be able to warn people if that's not you using G+. If you are on GooglesPlus, sorry for the trouble and discard this note.

Thank You Very Much--Just trying to keep the net safer for others!

Posted by MB (2011-08-28) 3286

Hi Shia;
Are you on Googles Plus? because someone is using your name, and we just like to know that it is you and not some impersonator.

I'm one of probably a thousand aspiring actors who have attempted to get in touch with you. I would just like to know if there is any way I could get some recommendations for a few good agents that might be able to help me jumpstart my career. Finding a good agent is tough and inhavent exactly had very good luck so far, so any help I could get would be great. Thanks so much.
P.S. Can't wait for the third transformers film. It looks incredible!

Im NOT, and I had so many things I wanted to tell you. Youve been on my mind ever since you left, I dont know about you, but I really felt something that night we were up at the beach. I dont know if you ever read these things, but if its meant to be, youll find it, and youll find know where I am. XOXO Hannah

I cannot describe to you the passion I have for acting because I do not understand it well enough. There is something inside me that has always wanted to be famous but then there was always that "voice of reason" saying I'm being ridiculous. I have thought about acting for my entire life, and I am definitely not the most experienced but I can assure you I am incredibly passionate about it. It would mean the world if Shia would contact me!

Posted by Melissa Neiger (2010-06-22) 2465

myy goodness, everyone's asking Shia for help! stop! You are a wonderful actor Shia, you've worked hard and made a name for yourself and deserve everything that you've gotten because of it. I love the quote on this site. "I want my audience to know me for my work, not because of who I'm dating or what drugs I'm on or what club I went to." very real. God bless. -Michy <3

Posted by Michelle Ramos (2010-06-22) 2464

I would really like just a chance to act on the big screen, it has always been a life long dream of mine. I want to make a start at acting and be recognized. My parents are crazy over sports, and when I decided not to play basketball and told my Dad I wanted to act. He said something hurtful. I want to make my family proud and show them I have what it takes. I have always been a big fan of Shia and if he can help me, it would mean the world to me.

Posted by Raven Powell (2010-06-22) 2462

Hey, Shia! I'm 9 years old. I'm an actor in Kentucky and am looking forward to watching your new movie "Transformers 3". I was hoping I could be in it but it's being filmed all the way in Chicago and I can't make it up there right now. I saw that you will be in "The Five Great Villages" and they are casting. If you have more information for me, I would like to audition for the movie and be in it with you! Thanks and hope to hear from you! One day we will work together! At least, I would like too!
