Shia LaBeouf: ‘I’m Not a Huge Spender’

Shia LaBeoufSHIA LaBeouf is not a “huge spender”.

The Transformers actor — who is currently dating British beauty Carey Mulligan — admits he has had difficulty knowing what to do with his multi-million dollar fortune as he leads a fairly modest life so after buying houses for his divorced parents, now splashes his cash on his passion for baseball team the Los Angeles Dodgers.

“I’ve never been a huge spender. I bought my parents’ houses because I was young and thinking like most single children whose parents are going through a divorce, I wanted to try and make things better,” he said.

“I realized they just weren’t meant to be and that’s beautiful too and they’re friends. Otherwise it’s mainly Dodger tickets. Seriously, I go pretty hard on those.”

Shia, 23, recently met up with Carey’s parents in a bid to prove the pair were the “real deal”.

“Her parents were worried that Shia was just another Hollywood player who would hurt Carey,” a source said at the time. “Shia did his best to prove he’s the real deal.”

The pair met on the set of Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps — which is due to be released later this year.
