Shia LaBeouf is hoping for a Hollywood comeback — and for the troubled actor that starts with getting sober.
The former Disney star, who has been in the headlines for several alcohol-related arrests in the past, opened up in a rare interview and revealed he has not had a drink in almost a year.
"You don’t touch it,” the 30-year-old told Variety. “Alcohol or any of that sh-t will send you haywire. I can’t f–k with none of it. I’ve got to keep my head low.”

He continued, "I got a Napoleonic complex. I start drinking and I feel smaller than I am, and I get louder than I should. It’s just not for me, dude.”
However, the Transformers star, who is engaged to actress Mia Goth, does realize he still has a long way to go.
"People I respected — dudes I wanted to work with — just looked me in the eyes and said, ‘Life’s too short for this sh-t,'" he said. "I’m still earning my way back."
