“Shia was tending to the other people in the car, signing over information, like insurance and stuff and basically, I overheard the guy tell him, ‘You should just get out of here and go,’ and Shia said, ‘Nah man. I gotta deal with this. My license plate, it’s my car. I don’t wanna go, I gotta deal with this.’”No, seriously: That's Tobey Maguire in a fright wig taping an episode of Pop Fiction, right? Meanwhile, in a stroke of pure metrosexualist-magazine serendipity, LaBeouf appears on the cover of the upcoming issue of Details. (Pictured above, pointing to his ticking love-engine with a still-healthy index finger. *Muffled sob.*) Inside, he's made to address a past checkered by lesser-severe brushes with the law, beginning with his infamous Walgreens skin-care-aisle sit-in:
"It was two hotheads," he says, "one completely in the wrong, one who wasn't enjoying his job that night, going at it about minuscule bullshit." [...] [On] one of his and his [recovering substance-abuser] father's longtime bonding rituals: "We would drink together and smoke together," LaBeouf says, "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."Really? Not a single, fellow iconic actor, Shia? Off the top of our heads we can think of Drew Barrymore, Carol Burnett, Mel Gibson (not that he's going to help your case)...let's see—just about anyone interviewed for Suzanne Somers's Wednesday's Children: Adult Survivors of Abuse Speak Out. (What—Cindy Williams isn't iconic?) The problem isn't your dad, or learning how to "do it like a gentleman" and stopping after one. It's the minuscule bullshit of thinking your iconic actor beer-shit don't stink.
