Back in 2017, Shia LaBeouf was arrested in Georgia for disorderly conduct.

The actor made headlines after footage of Shia showed him boasting about his “millionaire lawyers”.

Now, Shia has opened up about his public outburst and arrest in the April edition of Esquire magazine.

“What went on in Georgia was mortifying,” Shia said. “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. I f**ked up.

Speaking about his public outbursts, Shia said, “I’m a buffoon. My public outbursts are failures. They’re not strategic. They’re a struggling motherf**ker showing his ass in front of the world.”

“I’ve got to look at my failures in the face for a while. I need to take ownership of my s**t and clean up my side of the street a bit before I can go out there and work again, so I’m trying to stay creative and learn from my mistakes.”

“I’ve been falling forward for a long time. Most of my life. The truth is, in my desperation, I lost the plot.”

A now sober Shia underwent prolonged exposure therapy as part of his court mandated treatment, which was given to him last year.

Although Shia gives his father credit for becoming an actor, he did say that, “A lot of my s**t has to do with my relationship with my dad, that dude is my gasoline.”

Shia shared that he wants to take care of himself and continue to make films.

“I’m just trying to deal with my life right now, cause I don’t have f**k-all to offer the world until I do,” he added.
