Shia LaBeouf's 'Variety' Interview: Missy Elliott Tattoos, Stealing 'Pokémon' & Spielberg Shade


Shia LaBeouf's new Variety cover story is pegged to his upcoming movie American Honey, but the interview it goes all over the place. Amid discussion of his 2014 outburst and arrest at a Broadway performance of Cabaret, LaBeouf says he now attends Alcoholics Anonymous and hasn't had a drink in nearly a year (he rejects the label "addict," however).

“You don’t touch it. Alcohol or any of that shit will send you haywire," he says. "I can’t fuck with none of it. I’ve got to keep my head low.” Elsewhere he adds, “I got a Napoleonic complex. I start drinking and I feel smaller than I am, and I get louder than I should. It’s just not for me, dude.”
