Is Shia LaBeouf Engaged To Mia Goth? If This Is True, It Could Be A Really Good Thing
This is definitely surprising news, but in a good way — not an interrupting a theater performance of Cabaret sort of way. According to the sparkly diamond ring on his girlfriend's finger, it would seem that Shia LaBeouf and Mia Goth are engaged after dating for two years. The 21-year-old model was spotted showing off her new bling on that finger at LAX on Monday, sparking rumors that they are planning to tie the knot, and I can't help but think that this is a step in the right direction for LaBeouf. Although he's become more known for his erratic behavior than his talent in recent years, he definitely seems to have settled down recently, and it might be because of Goth's positive influence.
Don't get me wrong — if LaBeouf didn't seem to be getting better, I'd be the first to say that marrying Goth (or anyone) is a terrible idea. Agreeing to spend the rest of your life with someone is a huge step, and it's not a contract anyone should enter into if they're not on stable ground. But I think LaBeouf is slowly returning to the man and the actor he was known as before his breakdown, and maybe it's because Goth is helping him become a better person. He definitely does seem happier with her around, especially when they're captured out and about by the paparazzi. It's been a long time since LaBeouf has seemed like he's been at peace with himself, and it's obviously hard to judge from outside of the situation, but it looks like things are getting better for him.
See? He's just your regular dude — as regular as someone who sports a rattail can be, anyway — hanging out with his girlfriend, sipping some coffee.
There's no bag on his head, no cry for help. And as far as I'm concerned, that's a good thing, because for awhile there I was pretty worried about him. He seemed to be heading for a downward spiral and I would have hated to see something tragic happen to someone who's obviously very talented and has simply lost his way. At the end of 2014, he explained his breakdown to Interview in a way that made a lot of sense, especially for someone who spent many of his formative years in the spotlight.
I've been a runner my whole life, running from myself. Whether to movies or drinking and drugging or f---ing calamity or whatever it is, I've always been running. I'm a dude who loves delusion. It's why I love being an actor — I never have to actually look at myself or be faced with my s--t or take responsibility.
If Goth is to thank for the positive changes LaBeouf is making, well done. They seem happy together, and they deserve it, especially LaBeouf after all he's been through.
Congratulations, you two. (Well, maybe...) That ring is gorgeous.
