Shia LaBeouf blames Georgia arrest on 'white privilege'

Shia LaBeouf blames Georgia arrest on 'white privilege'

White privilege and desperation and disaster ... It came from a place of self-centered delusion. "It was my trying to absolve myself of guilt for getting arrested..."

To be more frank, he added, "I f-ed up".

Among the topics on his arrest, and the happenings while filming The Peanut Butter Falcon, Shia talks about Kanye West and how the rapper grabbed his Yeezy inspiration from him. In a video of LaBeouf's arrest obtained by ET, the actor repeatedly swore at his arresting officers, also telling a black officer that the president "doesn't give a f**k about you, and you wanna do what?"

The #TAKEMEANYWHERE director hit a new low on July 8 when he repeatedly called Chatham County police officers 'b****' and 'w****' during his sixth arrest (for obstruction, disorderly conduct, and public drunkenness) in Savannah.

"I'm run out", he said.

"You're already famous. This is my chance".

Now, in his first interview since the arrest, LaBeouf, 31, calls the entire incident "mortifying" - and revealed that he is now sober since completing court-ordered rehab. "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".

"I've got to look at my failures in the face for a while". They don't release these!' Just on my defense-mechanism-fear garbage. He keeps it one thousand with you, and that s- doesn't even make sense to him. "Zack can't not shoot straight, and bless him for it, 'cause in that moment, I needed a straight shooter who I couldn't argue with".

This is disturbing. Shia LeBeouf shockingly revealed how he was forced to overhear his mother get raped as a child in a new interview with Esquire Magazine.

If anyone can relate to public meltdowns, it's Kanye West - though LaBeouf says his friendship with the rapper soured after West took all his clothes (including LaBeouf's "Indiana Jones" hat). It's the same feeling of "You need to avenge your mother" he says contributed to his first arrest when he went after a man who "bumped into my mother's vehicle with his auto in a parking lot".

LaBeouf is next set to star in Borg McEnroe, which follows the great tennis rivalry between Swedish tennis legend Björn Borg (Sverrir Gudnason) and American tennis icon John McEnroe (Shia LaBeouf).
