Shia LaBeouf is having a bad week. Which puts his current streak of bad weeks at about 150. First, the English co-star of his upcoming movie Nymphomaniac said during a interview that "people don't necessarily sympathize with him." Which sounds like an icredibly British way of calling someone a dipshit for attempting to turn plagurism into an art form by wearing a bag on their head when they should be promoting the movie you made together.
Usually actors are pretty good about looking out for each other, at least in public. Because even when they hate each other, celebrities rarely risk alienating anyone they think they may work with or might be able to help them in the future. So when Jerry O'Connell starts teeing off on you in public and Jason Biggs calls you a "dick in a bag," it's a clear sign that your star has begun collapsing on itself.
That's why it really has to sting for Shia LaBeouf - who seems to want nothing more than to be taken seriously as an artist - when the only celebrity who seems to appreciate said art is Justin Bieber's 15-year-old former bestie, Jaden Smith, who took to Twitter this afternoon in an effort to reach out to Hollywood's human clown car, Shia Labeouf.

Shia hasn't responded to the offer of help yet. He's probably busy filling a kiddie pool with soup or staging a sit-in on the 405 as part of his ongoing effort to not be famous.
