Shia LaBeouf

I'm Sober Now

And Brad Pitt Is Helping Me

7/22/2014 10:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Shia LaBeouf Sober
Shia LaBeouf has a dangerous addiction to the bottle ... and Brad Pitt may be the cure.

The two are set to co-star in the upcoming World War II blockbuster "Fury" and Shia could use all the help he can get to handle the stress from his first worldwide media blitz since "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" in 2011.

We're told he's taking his outpatient alcohol treatment program seriously.  But there's something more ... the thought of embarrassing Brad is especially sobering for him.

His recent run of drunken debauchery is well-documented ... picking a fight outside a strip club, banned from an L.A. restaurant for pissing on it, and booted from a Broadway show.

The movie is a good change of pace ... getting tanked in a good way.  It does seem ... Shia is serious about diving back into the acting game.

Wow, a real miracle. You'd hardly know that alcoholism and drug addiction are life-long struggles for those afflicted.

He is the male version of Lindsay Lohan - too many chances. I don't think he is that great of actor anyway. He was horrible in the Indiana Jones role and the last movie I saw him in was so forgettable I can't remember he name.

What a headline, using Brad Pitt. Here's mine. "I'm avoiding anal sex. Harvey Levin is helping me".

Brad Pitt is one of the biggest closet alcoholics in Hollywood. It's been rumored that he takes off from home for days going on binges with the Oceans 11 frat pack.

Alcohol is the least of his problems, judging by his antics, there is much more involved. Shame, cause he's a good actor, but he seems to have a chip on his shoulder aside from his substance abuse issues. Get well!

If there's anybody who knows how to manage life as a celebrity, it's Brad. He's a million more times famous than Shia, gets followed by paps around the world, and he's allegedly a weed lover but he's never been in any kind of scandal over bad behavior in public. No drunken foolishness or drug arrests.
