Last month, the “Transformers” actor was accused of copying (almost word for word) one of author Daniel Clowes' graphic novellas for his short film “HowardCantour.com.”

Then, weirdly, Shia seemed to turn around and mock Clowes by tweeting scans of a cease and desist letter from the author’s lawyer.
Whether LaBeouf is serious about retiring or not, we will be seeing him in the upcoming Lars von Trier film, “Nymphomaniac" and the war flick "Fury" with Brad Pitt.
