    Drinking Almost Ruined My Life: Shia LaBeouf


    Former 'Transformers' actor Shia LaBeouf admits that his addiction to drinking almost ruined his life but he finally ditched that addiction a year ago.

    The 30-year-old star mentioned that he is now trying to keep his "head low". He has understood the meaning of life and that it makes him sober.

    "That thing (drinking) almost messed up my life. Alcohol or any of that crap will send you haywire. I can't deal with none of it. I've got to keep my head low," he said.

    "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. I had people tell me it was going to ruin my career."

    "People I respected - dudes I wanted to work with - just looked me in the eyes and said, 'Life's too short for this crap.' I'm still earning my way back. I'm happy working." He said.

    However, Shia had developed reservation against some of the directors he worked with and he would not prefer to associate with them in future. But he also admitted that they had liked his freaky nature.

    "I don't think I'd be working with the directors I've been working with if I had not f***ed up a bit. They wanted a f***ing fireball," said Shia.

    "They wanted a loose cannon. I'm learning how to distill my 'crazy' into something manageable, that I can shape and deliver on the day ... Before I was an open wound bleeding on everything." Shia added.
