YOUNG HOLLYWOOD TV
And Shia LaBeouf is thankful he broke into the industry as a youngster, because having his father on-set of TV show Even Stevens helped rebuild the pair's relationship.
He tells Britain's The Sun, "My father was never around because he was selling drugs to keep us alive. And my mother was never around because she was selling brochures in the park to keep us alive. They never had time for each other, and they fell out. It ruined my life for a long time. I am not the first one to go through it, but I blamed myself for it...
"I rented my dad back into my life. This business (acting) gave me my father. Money gave me my father. If I had no money and no way to supplement my father's income so he could survive, I would have no father."
