Shia LaBeouf goes viral with hilarious table read

By Sophie Thompson

Hollywood royalty including Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston came together for a charity table read of the 'Fast Times at Ridgemont High' script - but it was Shia Labeouf's appearance that was turning heads.

'Fast Times at Ridgemont High' was one of the most iconic movies of the 80s, and this weekend, Hollywood royalty including Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt came together for a charity table read of the script. The reading was to raise money for COVID-19 charity CORE and reform charity, Reform Alliance.

They were also joined by the likes of Morgan Freeman, Julia Roberts, Henry Golding and John Legend - but it was Shia Labeouf who was turning heads for his unusual choice of setting...and because he was high as a kite.

Shia, who got his break as a teenager in Even Stevens, was sat in a van in his garage, dressed in neon sunglasses while topless, sweating, and smoking a joint being his usual eccentric self.

In the hour-long video, we see Shia make some seriously questionable noises and go for a run around his garage as he plays the role of Jeff Spicoli - one of the movies main high school stoners.

Naturally, in spite of what is already a bleak time for everyone, the internet immediately fell in love with the 34-year-old's outrageous appareance, sparking a wave of memes and reactions about his show-stealing appearance.

Here are just a taste of the best...

Fans are now calling for the movie to be re-booted with Shia cast in the role. Given that golden couple Brad and Jen also reunited on the Zoom call, we can see the demand for this one being pretty damn high.

Time for a Transformer's reunion? We hear Shia has big plans.
