Speaking of controversial topics famous film director, producer and screenwriter Mel Gibson puts in good words for the famously embattled star Shia LaBeouf. In an interview with IndieWire at the Czech Republic’s Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, where Mr.Gibson was honored with a lifetime achievement award, he talked about his career, his past, and for some reason Shia LaBeouf and this is what he had to say.
“When I see someone like Shia LaBeouf with the bag on his head and stuff, my heart goes out to the poor guy … I think he’s suffering in some way,” said Gibson. “People are in line to sort of point the finger at him and say that he’s this, that, or the other. It’s easy to judge. But I’m sure he’s going through some kind of personal, kind of very painful, cathartic thing that he has to exorcise and get out there.”
It is very kind of the legend to sympathize with Shia’s situation and him supposedly checking into the rehab facility. However, he is still very optimistic that LaBeouf will ride out the storm:
“He’ll probably play it out and come back, whatever it happens to be. He’ll be alright. I actually like the kid. I think he’s good. I’ve never met him.”
