Shia LaBeouf Drank All the Whiskey, Chased a Marine, and Went to Jail — and It’s Hilarious

January 8, 2022Mac Caltrider

Shia LaBeouf portrayed a Marine in Man Down. Composite by Coffee or Die Magazine.

Over the years, Shia LaBeouf has developed a reputation for being a bit … odd. Some might say crazy even. His on-screen shenanigans have garnered criticism from fellow actors and his off-screen antics have gotten him arrested eight times. He’s faced off against 4chan and starred in bizarre parodies of his own persona, but for all his quirks, LaBeouf remains a talented actor and one of the funniest interviewees out there. 

As a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live! LaBeouf gave the world one of the funniest celebrity interviews of all time, telling the story of a wild night in New York in 2014 that culminated in one of his arrests. The Fury actor describes a night full of whiskey, World Cup soccer, a run-in with a homeless Marine veteran, and a Broadway production of Cabaret.

LaBeouf may not have mastered his addictive tendencies or wild behavior, but he’s an undeniably great storyteller. We dug up the hilarious tale for anyone who missed it or just wants to watch it again.
