Michael Schidlovsky : “We’re blessed to be existential because we don’t have to worry about what we’re going to eat today..” some of the realest words spoken in an interview by a celebrity/actor

Marké Mark : This is what engaging w/in the community looks like. Shia is just a good dude, he's grown and has a focus.

Joseph Vanni : Everyone talking about Shia here, lets also highlight the interviewer for asking some real questions and guiding the conversation really well!

Chris Vazquez : Makes me so happy to see Shia doing well. Great interview and he was so well spoken. Keep it up my dude!

Dom W : My guy is an A list actor really in the middle of the hood, at a park, calling people by their street names. This is mind blowing

B : Someone get this man Shai a NETFLIX contract! We want your work

Scarlett Johansson : Shia: **Waves Josh: "Popular guy in the neighborhood." Shia: "Well people run this spot, you gotta kiss the ring" PURE GANGSTA.

Rahshad Dawson : I’ve always liked Shia. I grew up in the Even Stevens/Transformers era. So, I’ve always been a fan. But after this interview, I’m a super fan. Shia’s a solid dude.

CmonSon6492 : Shia's aura has changed. His transformation is genuine and I couldn't be happier to see him back on his feet after all the BS. Blessings, blessings

Kenneth Krucina : Think I learned about ten words during this interview

CinemASMR : So glad I clicked on this, watched the whole thing and fealt a real connection and respect for the man. 10/10 interview.

Mike Cicciari : "we're blessed in that we get to be existential, because none of us are thinking about how we're gonna eat today" Thats the realest shit I've heard in an interview.

Death2cornbread : He lowkey remind me of a young Robot Downey jr, with all the high and lows.

ShadoeFax : This guy is a phenomenal actor, I can't express how happy I am to see him in a good place now. He seems geniuly happy.

CrownedxKay The MUA : 6:38 - "We're blessed in that we're able to be existential since neither of us aren't thinking about how we're going to eat today"

Javier Gomez : Shia is so well spoken, almost like poetry

Benjamin Pulido : The realest MF that ever lived. I feel a strong connection to him as a personality type.

S Foster : Thank god Shia found plays written by "culturally" different directors. The world has been dying for a story line that almost nobody relates with.

sealteam 6 : Blown away by his turn around sounds like he's at peace with his inner self and found his true identity.. this man is as real as it gets great interview

PrettyTiaF : Shia is literally still that kid from Even Stevens just wanting everyone to be friends. Hes very emotional perceptive and introspective. Brutally honest. Hes super rare but of course hes imperfect as we all are. I like to watch and support most of the movies hes doing bc theyvare so emotionally intelligent. Man Down was a blessing, I dont even care if it made $1 in the UK. The movie was necessary. American Honey showed us the lives of lost youth and that too was so necessary. I cant wait for Peanut Butter Falcon and Honey Boy. I am sooo excited😍💜 I also loved the short film he did ab the couple on drugs and how it tore them apart as well as his work with Sia. Love u Shia!!! Wish I could meet u someday

Lisa Meredith : Am I the only one who thinks Shia should be the next Leo DiCaprio, Denzel Washington, ya know? I think he is such an underrated actor. He's such an amazing person, and actually cares about real world issues. Hes an Activist, and he's opinionated and stands up for what he believes, he's the type of person people should look up to. He has so much going for him. He's genuine, very hard to come by now a days.

Terry The Kid : Shia has always been that kind of dude that everybody needs as a friend...he just seems like he'd come over and hang out even if you were just washing clothes for the evening...and it would be just a funny ass night

KHkippen : Good for Shia - so happy for him. And great interviewer! He asked some really great questions and was just very genuine.

Ghost Jet : Shia is a freaking real dude! I have a whole new respect for him, much respect Shia! Legendary status for sure!

James Kennedy : No disturbia mention? Always loved that one.

Chris Roper : It's comforting to know that people who seem to have everything can still struggle to find their place, I'm glad Shia has found his. This interview was very well done.

MrCringeGaming : Umm, you got to find real friends not fake friends.This, interview was inspiring, motivating and much more.

Jackie Blue : “Can’t meet a god as a gotta find the god in you” —I like that.

Lee Dee : I’m from echo park before it was cute. OG. 😎😅

Armani Martinez : A great comeback and true actor who’s been doing indie movies for the last years avoiding summer block busters

Dartagnan Magic : Met Shia coming out of Interstellar in New Orleans a few years back. Had a great conversation. Had some deep things to say.

Oscar Carcamo : I literally live two min away.. damn. Im there! Thank you for giving to the community Mr. LaBeouf

M Border : This kid he is a genius one of the best actors there is...and to see what he is now doing is inspiring

Kismet : Exceptional interview. So glad he found something that brought him back from the dark road that sadly few brilliant creative actors make it back from. All the best bro. 🤙❤️

Macc aroni : I never kept up with shia and do remember hearing about him getting arrested a couple times i think.. But this interview DEFINITELY changed my mind about him. He's such a good guy and very self aware! Humble dude fr!

StopThatSquirrel : Wow he articulated some things I've been thinking about for a while. This was a really cool interview.

Tommaso Urbisci : "ten months to build ten minutes, that's a minute a month"- PROFOUND

Bardia Ganji : is it too much to ask this guy to take over all interviews on TV? Dude's amazing at it. Also you could tell shia has been through a lot. Good for him to be able to find peace and happiness in giving back.

Sean Lilley : Shia is getting better day by day and I'm so happy to see this

Clint Hyson : Best interview I’ve seen in awhile! Great questions, great answers, great all around vibe

AJ Nooren : Shia you truly inspire me, thanks for this interview MTV

Sarin Sinclair : Very good interviewer. Engaging, but not overwhelming. The conversation felt natural the entire time. Thanks for this one MTV!

Nedi Bailon : Some of the realist lines/quotes.. ig bio worthy

Sean Riley : MTV actually just put out one of the most revealing and realest interviews ever especially for it being 2019. Just got to see one of the most talented and versatile actors of our generation be himself. Shia is so down to earth, you could have a beer with this guy and feel like he isn’t this household name and superstar! Big Ups to MTV for this and spotlighting the progress and love going into the Pueblos

Cree Todacheenie : I swear his last name was spelled differently. Lol I'm tripping 🤦🏽‍♀️🤣 I must of not paid enough attention to the spelling of his last name.

Blake Anthony : I've always been a fan of real thinker shias the goat fr

SPIDER LILIEZ : He's had some issues, who doesn't? He's matured, and wiser now. Good luck Shia, all the best to you!
