Shia LaBeouf is here to say he’s sorry.
Okay, he’s here to say A LOT of other stuff as well.
The actor, who has become as well-known for his outbursts these days as for his IMDB resume, opens way up in the latest issue of Esquire, talking about his recent arrests… how he now views them… and what he thinks of God.

TMZ eventually obtained and published the police footage, which featured LaBeouf bragging about his “millionaire lawyers.”

Arrest white people?
In this extended interview with Esquire, LaBeouf takes responsibility for this incident, talking about it in detail for the first time.
“What went on in Georgia was mortifying,” he tells the magazine, adding of what prompted him to flip out:
“White privilege and desperation and disaster…It came from a place of self-centered delusion…It was me trying to absolve myself of guilt for getting arrested.”
In short, LaBeouf confesses:
“I f–ked up.”
That’s for sure.
But it’s refreshing to hear him admit as much.
The morning after he was released from jail last summer, LaBeouf went to a party for the cast and crew of The Peanut Butter Falcon.
