Is Shia LaBeouf calling it a day?
In tweets posted Friday morning, the 27-year-old actor says he’s disappearing from the spotlight:
In light of the recent attacks against my artistic integrity, I am retiring from all public life.— Shia LaBeouf (@thecampaignbook) January 10, 2014
My love goes out to those who have supported me.— Shia LaBeouf (@thecampaignbook) January 10, 2014
La Beouf has been under scrutiny since December when he was accused of plagiarizing a graphic novel by writer Daniel Clowes for his short film, "HowardCantour.com." He apologized on Twitter and later took the to skies with a skywritten apology.
In his tweet, he explained: "Copying isn't particularly creative work. Being inspired by someone else's idea to produce something new and different IS creative work In my excitement and naivete as an amateur filmmaker, I got lost in the creative process and neglected to follow proper accreditation."
The actor's next film, the NC-17 “Nymphomaniac,” is due out this year.
