Shia: (on his 2008 car accident) The crash was eye opening and terrifying. The car hit me at 70mph. It was one of the biggest things that's happened to me, for sure, in my life. I'm just grateful to be here.
Shia: I grew up around a lot of aggressive guys. My parents used to take me to AA meetings when I was very young. So I know aggression, I know insanity.
Shia: Clubs are so lame. Nobody even dances at these clubs. They stand around and get drunk and they schmooze. There is no enjoyment factor. You get so many invites . . . partying has never interested me. My dad was a drug addict. There's something about watching your dad go through heroin withdrawal when you're 11. It's not interesting anymore. I'm not individualizing this. There are lots of kids that deal with this. I'm an '80s baby; that's what was going on.
Shia: (When asked about what girls he likes) I like the dark, mysterious, maybe even gothic type girls. They have to have a good personality too! I'm very picky!
Shia: It would be fun to be the Giants' Jeremy Shockey or the Colts' Peyton Manning for a game or two. But I wouldn't permanently want to be anybody but myself.
Shia LaBeouf: (about being accepted to Yale around the same time he landed a role in a Steven Spielberg film) I'd love to go to school and have a normal life, but I don't see any professor at Yale being able to teach me more than Steven Spielberg.
Shia LaBeouf: I used to dirt bike a lot. I can't do that anymore. Can't eat a whole lot of chocolate anymore, either. I can't be in Indiana Jones and be a fatso!
Shia LaBeouf: To be an actor, a true actor, you have to be brokenhearted.
Shia LaBeouf: Acting is more of an art form than an occupation.
Shia LaBeouf: Would I want to win an Oscar before I'm 40? Maybe. Would I want to win one before I'm 25? No.
Shia LaBeouf: (On being a celebrity) I'll tell you when I become one.
Shia LaBeouf: I understand why marriages break up over golf. I can't even talk about my own handicap because it's too upsetting.
Shia LaBeouf: (why he became an actor) Greed. I was poor and it was a way to get out of the hood.
Shia LaBeouf: People think that their vote counts. They go to college, and everything gets mixed up. People stop caring, ... They raise the gas prices, but what the Everyman makes and welfare never seem to keep up. The HMO system is so ridiculous. I'm slightly educated. No one wants to hear what Hilary Duff thinks of the economy.
Shia LaBeouf: You can't buy back your respect; you can't buy back your career. You only get one, so I don't want to mess that up.
