Shia LaBeouf Only Acted Crazy Because of an Existential Crisis

Wanna know why Shia LaBeouf put a bag over his head with “I’m not famous anymore” written on it or why he got into fights or why he chased around homeless guys or why he just acted crazy in general over the past year? As he explained to Ellen DeGeneres, it was all due to an existential crisis and bad judgement.

“I went through this existential crisis,” he said. “Which turned into like, explorations. I had some hiccups, some judgment errors.”

Asked about his I’m not famous anymore performance piece, LaBeouf said there was a lot of negativity online and he figured he’d just let random strangers pull his fingernails out with pliers.

“Yeah. We had a table with all these instruments. You know there was like an Indiana Jones whip and some pliers… There was a lot of negativity online. So I thought, ‘Alright, let’s see what all this negativity is about. Let’s invite it in.'”

His mother ended up being the one to help him out of his crisis by telling him to “stop fucking around.” Mothers. So wise.
