Shia LaBeouf Says He’s Thankful He Got Arrested

I suppose there’s some attempt to show humility and growth thatks the reason behind celebrities always saying that the worst, lost embarrassing things they did are “the best thing that ever happened to them.” Like the time Rob Lowe accidentally made child porn. He grew from it, what a scamp he is, he’s so upbeat on Parks and Recreation!

Shia LaBeouf is the latest celebrity to explain how making a jackass of himself in public was awesome for him while giving a speech at the Hollywood Film Awards. Here’s what he said, via USA Today.

“I want to thank the police officer who arrested me in Georgia,” said LaBeouf, who carried on speaking over some laughs from audience members who thought he was joking. “For changing my life.”

LaBeouf used time during his court-ordered rehab after the sensational arrest to write the script. Now sober, he went on to thank “my therapist and my sponsor for saving my life,” as well as “my parents for giving my life.”

Oh sure, he’s thanking him today. Back when when arrested he called the guy a “pirate bitch” which is honestly a great line. He was also super racist to everyone and told done of the officers his wife wanted “black dick.”

LeBeouf has cleaned up his image just in time for Disney’s stream service to launch featuring LeBeouf in the very popular Disney Channel show Even Stevens that launched his career and the service will eventually also add the Indiana Jones movie he was in. So I can only assume that Mickey Mouse has some snipers on him telling him not to make them look bad.

Seriously, though, it’s good to see LeBeouf has turned his life around. He did manage to carry a really good show for three seasons as a teenager and I’m sure that on a long enough time frame, he’ll be in something else that’s good. I mean, he’d almost have to be, right?
