Shia LaBeouf Announces Retirement From 'Public Life' Via Twitter

Actor Shia LaBeouf has announced his retirement from "all public life".

Shia has been in a bit of trouble with his plagiarised short film, his plagiarised apologies, and his Twitter feud with 'Girls' creator Lena Dunham (which - you guessed it - was also plagiarised).

Seemingly taking a leaf our of Justin Bieber's book, Shia said on Twitter on Friday: "In light of the recent attacks against my artistic integrity, I am retiring from all public life."

He followed the bold statement by thanking those who have supported him over the past weeks:

If you think you'll miss Shia, don't worry you can still catch him (and we mean ALL of him) in Lars von Trier’s typically controversial upcoming new movie 'Nymphomaniac'.
