LaBeouf appears on the November cover of Interview magazine. LaBeouf discusses his relationship with his father and his recent behavior.
I’m not a very intelligent person, and you’ve got to be a f–king genius to learn from other people’s mistakes, because you’ve got to be a very smart man to learn from your own. You’re only as good as your last thing, and I’m only thinking about the next thing. I’ve been a runner my whole life, running from myself. Whether to movies or drinking and drugging or f–king calamity or whatever it is, I’ve always been running. I’m a dude who loves delusion. It’s why I love being an actor—I never have to actually look at myself or be faced with my s–t or take responsibility. So it’s been an eye-opening thing to have to look at myself, at my life, and have these reflective moments.
