Transformers' LaBoeuf: Troubled Star

Photo of Anne Thompson By Anne Thompson | Thompson on Hollywood June 16, 2009 at 7:16AM

What a difference two years makes. The picture on left of Shia LaBeouf ran in Parade Magazine when Disturbia made him into a star. The photo on the right ran this week in Parade in advance of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. (Here's http://www.variety.com/review/VE1117940483.html?categoryid=31&cs=1">Variety's review.) We all know that talent is only one component of a long and happy career. Stability is another. Or to put it another way, sometimes the sensitive tuning rod that is essential to a working actor's skill set isn't screwed on tight enough. LaBeouf speaks frankly about his demons. I wish him well in dealing with them.

The young star also let slip the fact that Indiana Jones 5 is in the offing. Surprise.


UPDATE: More LaBeouf true confessions.
