Shia LaBeouf was going through a terrible rap, being accused of sexual battery and assault by actress FKA Twigs and was ready to take his life with a loaded gun while reading the emails about the details of the case.
He spoke to Jon Bernthal
During an intimate talk with Jon Bernthal, he admitted he was in a very dark place and he was ready to end it all.
After his declaration during the podcast, he also admitted that there was always a “wiggle-room” an escape where things got better, but this time it was rock bottom. He mentioned that there has always been someone for him, and this time it was Sean Penn, who asked him to speak to Josh Brolin.
Josh Brolin and Sean Penn helped him
Brolin recommended LaBeouf speak to an AA sponsor, and that is what helped him take the gun away from his hands.
He also spoke about what it took from him to end a relationship with a mistress that was not going anywhere and that in another situation it would have spun him out of control.
He also spoke to Bishop Barron
During another interview with Bishop Barron on his Word on Fire Catholic Ministries’ youtube show, he admitted that his “world had crumbled” and he “didn’t want to be alive anymore, nobody wants to talk to me, including my mother. My manager’s not calling. The agent’s not calling. I am not connected to the business anymore.”
Shia LaBeouf is now on a spiritual journey
“At this point I’m nuclear,” LaBeouf said to Bishop Barron about his recent problems “I had a gun on the table. I was outta here, I didn’t want to be alive anymore when all this happened. Shame like I had never experienced before – the kind of shame that you forget how to breathe.”
“You don’t know where to go,” LaBeouf continued. “You can’t go outside and get like, a taco.”
