Jordan Zakarin of Buzzfeed has become a connoisseur of actor Shia LaBeouf's propensity to steal lines from others, including in a new short firm and in a mea culpa speech where the actor managed to lift from Tiger Woods and former Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara.
LaBeaof is not best-known for his role as Francis Ouimet in the unfortunate The Greatest Game Ever Played. Though it's not as if he's the only actor committing an atrocity. It's not like he waxed his baby's eyebrow.
LaBeouf took to Twitter to attempt another apology on Wednesday morning, and the apologies he sent out also seem lifted from very famous statements, as first pointed out by blog The Film Stage.
He wrote, “I have let my family down, and I regret those transgressions with all of my heart,” which was taken word-for-word from Tiger Woods’ 2009 apology for infidelity.
Then, LaBeouf tweeted, “I was wrong, terribly wrong. I owe it to future generations to explain why,” which former Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara wrote in his memoir about the execution of the Vietnam War.
