We may not be seeing Shia LaBeouf for a while. The actor, who has received a lot of ridicule and criticism after it was revealed that he plagiarized novelist Daniel Clowes' work on his short film HowardCantour.com, is taking a break from public life.
LaBeouf tweeted this morning (Friday), "In light of the recent attacks against my artistic integrity, I am retiring from all public life. My love goes out to those who have supported me." There's no word yet on what "retiring from all public life actually means," although it is assumed that he will at the very least take a break from social media. (Huffington Post)
