Shia LaBeouf has been in the eye of a shitstorm of bad press lately—he got fired from the Broadway play Orphans and caught heat for wanting to film unsimulated sex scenes for his upcoming movie Nyphomaniac—but that doesn't make him any less of a talent. In fact, LaBeouf's done what only a handful of child actors have achieved: transitioned from a goofball on the Disney Channel to star in serious films opposite the likes of A-listers like Michael Douglas to Robert Redford.
