Shia Labeouf Says He Lied About Being Abused by His Father in ‘Honey Boy’

Honey Boy is a 2019 film, written by LaBeouf and directed by Alma Har’el, that was supposedly based on Shia LaBeouf’s life as a child star and his strained relationship with his father. LaBeouf portrays James Mort in the film, based on his father, while Noah Jupe portrays Otis, who is based off of a young LaBeouf. In Honey Boy, Mort is depicted as an aggressive recovering alcoholic who abuses his young son.

Honey Boy received high praise from critics for the performances of its actors, as well as the heavy subjects it tackled. LaBeouf first shot to fame at the tender age of 14 by portraying Lewis Stevens on the Disney Channel hit original series, Even Stevens. It was a role that landed him a Daytime Emmy Award in 2013. Following his stint on the Disney Channel, he went on to star in the first three films in the Transformers series, as well as Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Fury, and Pieces of a Woman.
