There was once a time when Hollywood actor Shia LaBeouf was a very young and cute child star, who a lot of people tipped to go on to enjoy a long and successful career in the business, with some even tipping him for greatness. While Shia is still working hard in Hollywood, his career has not gone so great and he has had plenty of controversial moments in his life over the past few years, which could have been the end of his acting career.
However, Shia LaBeouf has always been a very talented actor and he is not one who will let things get to him too much, and is now looking to work his way back to the top of the Hollywood ladder, starting with new movie American Honey. Many people have suggested that we could well see Shia getting an Oscar nod for his performance in the movie, but the actor himself feels that his past will not allow for that to happen, just yet.
Labeouf explained, "Nah, dude, not me! The Oscars are about politics. I've got to earn my way back. I'm not that guy for a long time. For a long, long time! And I'm good with that."
As well as starring Shia LaBeouf, the rest of the cast for American Honey includes such stars as Sasha Lane and Riley Keough, to name just a couple, while the very talented Andrea Arnold has directed the movie, based on the screenplay which she also wrote herself. American Honey is released in the US today (September 30), while it will not hit the big screen in the UK until October 14.
