Shia LaBeouf Gets Entire Body Tattooed for New Film

Shia LaBeouf is one helluva interesting character.

He puts his heart and soul into every movie he stars in, but this time he's putting his body in it too.

Yes that's right, as the headline states, Shia has gotten his entire body tattooed for his next role in The Tax Collector.

Keep scrolling to check it out.

All in all, Shia LaBeouf is a pretty great guy...

The California-born actor is best known for his roles in movies such as Holes (2003), the Transformers trilogy (2007-2011), and Fury (2014).

But for some reason...

The actor often finds himself on the wrong side of his fans.

Take earlier this year, for example...

Shia presented the award for the category Best Live-Action Short at The Oscars alongside his co-star, Zack Gottsagen, who has Down’s Syndrome.

For those who haven't seen The Peanut Butter Falcon...


It centers around a man with Down’s Syndrome (Zack) who, with the help of his friend (Shia), attempts to pursue a career as a wrestler.

All went well with the presenting...

But the internet was not happy when Shia was seen to smile when Zack stumbled on his lines.

Shia's smile caused people to question his patience with Zack...

And many interpreted it as a cruel gesture towards his co-star.

But thankfully...

Many fans rushed to the actor’s defense and they reminded others that Shia only accepted the opportunity to present at the Oscars on the condition that Zack could do it alongside him.

This was a case of a simple misunderstanding...

And Shia was only smiling while experiencing the moment of a lifetime with his friend.

The actor also isn't one to deny his past...

And a few years ago, Shia opened up about a turbulent time in his life that involved violence and addictions.

He issued this apology after he was arrested for drunk and disorderly behavior...

And even though many fans were left disgusted by his behavior, there were also many who appreciated his honesty and how he took responsibility for his actions.

The actor is yet again being slammed by fans for his most recent Hollywood venture.

The actor has landed a role in The Tax Collector, which is due to be released later this year.

He will be playing the starring role as Creeper and IMDB have said about the movie:

“A “tax collector” for a crime lord finds his family’s safety compromised when his boss’s old rival shows up in LA and upends his business.”

Sounds promising, right?

Well, it turns out that fans have a problem with the way Shia looks in this new role.

Fans are confused by the way he looks as Creeper...

And they feel that it doesn’t look like Shia, at all.

The actor has been accused of taking on a Latino role...

And because he is a white man, fans aren’t impressed with this interpretation… nor are they impressed with director David Ayer’s response to the accusations.

The director was called out for using "brownface" in his movie...

And many feel that using Shia for a Latino role was unnecessary when there are so many Latino actors out there.


A vast majority of people on Twitter have spoken out about how Shia’s new role isn’t portraying cultural appropriation.

The director spoke out for himself...

And he confirmed that Shia’s role is very specific and not at all brownface.

People are clearly getting bored with the accusations...

And fans are wanting others to stop trying to cancel Shia’s new movie.

Shia has put a lot into this film.

Which has including him having his entire body tattooed for the big role.

Take a look.

Speaking about his commitment, Executive Producer, David Ayer, said:

He’s one of the best actors I’ve worked with, and he’s the most committed to body and soul. He had a tooth pulled on Fury, and then on Tax Collector, he got his whole chest tattooed. So he kind of goes all in, and I’ve never known anyone that committed.

You can say that again.
