It is rather interesting that Shia LaBeouf first rose to fame appearing on the Disney Channel show, "Even Stevens". He gained a wider audience with appearances in family-friendly projects like "The Even Stevens Movie" and "Holes". His childhood, however, was anything but Disney-like, and included bouts of abuse and periods of poverty. This tough childhood has spilled over somewhat into his personal life. He has occasionally made dubious decisions, which have resulted in fistfights, evictions from bars, arrests, and multiple court dates. Since the end of the three-ring circus that was "The Transformers" franchise, he has publicly stated that he wants to concentrate on independent film for the foreseeable future. His idea of "independent" appears to include two highly anticipated projects, "Lawless", co-starring Gary Oldman, Guy Pearce, and Jessica Chastain, and "The Company You Keep", directed by Robert Redford. His steady acting work has allowed him to support both of his parents, who divorced when he was younger, and has also allowed him to purchase a large, but modest home in Sherman Oaks, California.
Shia LaBeouf's house in Sherman Oaks is 2,463 square feet and contains three bedrooms and four bathrooms. The house also sports a sunken living room, an "L" shaped swimming pool, a massive state-of-the-art kitchen, and floor-to-ceiling windows. Shia LaBeouf's house overlooks the nearby mountains and the city, and is surrounded by a wall that was the cause of some controversy a few years ago. Situated on approximately half an acre of land, Shia LaBeouf's house is surprisingly low-key compared to the homes of many other young stars. Here's hoping he can keep his act together, his career steady, and his name on the deed.
