Shia LaBeouf: Bar Fight Was 'an Awkward Situation'

USMagazine, Tuesday, May 17, 2011, 7:58am (PDT)

Nobody wants a beef with Shia LaBeouf!

The "Transformers" star stopped by "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" on Monday and explained what happened during the infamous February bar fight that landed him in handcuffs.

"I walked out to have a cigarette. I was away with some friends. Some guys instigated me and that's what it was. Some name calling," LaBeouf, 24, said. "I didn't know them."

"It was just an awkward situation," he lamented. "I'm not trying to challenge anybody either. People get drunk, people get crazy."

No charges were filed, and LaBeouf isn't too worried about his public image.

"The only opinion that really counts for me, and I don't care how cheesy it sounds, my mother's opinion is very -- it's a serious deal for me," he said. "It's really the only honest opinion I feel I truly have and the only opinion that matters in my life."
