Here are some photos of Shia LaBeouf out for a walk (for whatever reason) on Pacific Coast Highway in September. Isn’t that a good way to get run over by a non-braking Lindsay Lohan? Well, Shia is doing his best to become a hot mess on his very own because he just got into a random bar fight in London. This isn’t the first time he’s flown into someone else’s fists (and vice versa), but it’s been nearly two years since he’s let his temper get the best of him. Shia is obviously — what with all of the gross, literal sex he’s having while filming Lars von Trier’s N-mphomaniac — under so much pressure that he couldn’t help himself when some dude pulled the hat (the one in these pictures) off his head. I mean, it’s a hat. Who does Shia think he is, Raylan Givens? I wonder if Bob Redford will pat him on the back after this silly fight:
Hollywood star Shia LaBeouf got into a scrap — while drinking in a student pub in a scruffy South London suburb.
Regulars at the Hobgoblin in New Cross were stunned when the Transformers actor walked in with Mia Goth, his co-star in new film N-mphomaniac.
Shia, 26, spent several hours drinking and happily posing for photos with fans. But the mood turned sour when a student prankster pinched the star’s baseball cap – a souvenir from Laos in Asia – and refused to give it back.
A scuffle broke out and drinkers had to separate the pair before Shia left in a taxi. Police were not called.
One witness said: “No one could believe that a well-known Hollywood star had rocked up at a bar in dingy SE14. Everyone was getting their photos taken with him.
“The scrap all started when this guy took his hat. I think he was just joking, but Shia didn’t like it.
“The guy just took it off him and wouldn’t give it back. He tried to get it back and they ended up tussling. It was handbags really. But it shows that even Hollywood stars can’t avoid grief down this way.”
Landlord Mark Harris confirmed Shia was in the pub with model and actress Mia, 19. Mark said: “Her mum lives just down the road. She came down to see her mum and he tagged along. He did get a bit frustrated and there was a bit of a scuffle.”

Radar Online adds to the story with a faux-poor Shia stance about how Shia thinks everyone starts crap with him just because he’s famous. According to one of Shia’s (nameless) pals (are there any other who grant “exclusives”?), Shia thinks that this dude who stole his baseball cap was just trying to egg him on, and “it’s not [Shia's] fault” that “he lost his temper,” right? Further, “Shia believes he is picked on by people simply because of his fame. He feels he gets victimized for who he is and says that people often try to start a fight with him just for fun. He only wants to have a little downtime after a hard day of filming and wants to be treated with a little bit of respect.” Yeah, okay. Shia’s had a hard day of work with all of that actual sex going on at the set. You’d think instead of placing himself in a situation where he’s very likely to punch someone for a variety of reasons that, you know, he’d just roll over and go to sleep after the “O-face.”
