Shia LaBeouf thought of ending his life after being brutally shamed in sex battery case: ‘I had a gun on the table’

Transformers star Shia LaBeouf is in news after his ex-girlfriend and singer FKA Twigs filed a complaint against him for sexual battery, assault and emotional torture. They dated for less than a year before separating in May 2019. Although Shia denied every allegation, he apologized for his bad behavior. The Hollywood actor has now opened up about committing suicide after being brutally embarrassed, which drove him to the lowest point of his life. In a crossroads conversation with Bishop Robert Barron, Shia confirmed that he is now a Catholic and how his connection to the religion saved him. “I had a gun on the table. I was out of here. When all this happened I didn’t want to live anymore. The kind of shame I’d never experienced before – the kind of shame you can breathe.” Forget taking. You don’t know where to go. You can’t go out and go like a taco,” hollywood news Producer actor said. “I didn’t want to be an actor anymore, and my life was a complete mess. I had hurt a lot of people, and I had deep shame and deep guilt,” LaBeouf acknowledged his embarrassment, adding. Before, “But I was also in this deep desire to hold.” Calling his previous works “disgusting” and “corrupt”, the Constantine actor said that he felt unworthy of the pursuit of religion, but that he felt “invited” to “go” when he read the gospel. But it was not until he met others who had gone through similar struggles that he was able to fully embrace the religion. “It was seeing other people who had sinned beyond anything I also had the concept of being found in Christ that made me feel like, ‘Okay, this gives me hope.’ I started hearing the experiences of other corrupt people who had found their way into it, and it made me feel like I had permission,” he explained. Although his mother is Jewish and his father is Christian, LaBeouf says he never felt a strong bond to a singular religion until now. “I didn’t know I was baptized. I was baptized earlier in my life and didn’t even remember it,” he tells Baron. “My uncle had baptized me in (the triangular formula),” he said. (with IANS inputs)
