Shia LaBeouf lived in a monastery as a researcher to play a priest, but now he’s all in and converted to Catholicism

It’s been a rough few years for Shia LaBeouf as he has faced numerous accusations and claims about his behavior on and off set. While his acting career has remained steady, his latest role as the real-life monk turned Saint Padre Pio in an upcoming biopic may have been a turning point for him. As a method actor, LaBeouf chose to live in a monastery to feel closer to the late Catholic monk. But his research led him to convert to Catholicism in the process.

According to New York Post, the baby boy actor opened up about his conversion to Bishop Robert Barron of Word on Fire Catholic Ministries on the Bishop’s YouTube page. As a solid actor, life in a monastery was nothing to Shia LaBeouf. But as LaBeouf began to live among priests, something slowly began to take an interest in Catholicism. The former Disney star admitted that his research to play Padre Pio was reaching a low point in his life.

The awarding had happened. I was already there, I had nowhere to go. This was the last stop of the train. There was nowhere else to go – in every way. I now know that God used my ego to draw me to Him. To withdraw from worldly desires. It all happened at once. But there would have been no impulse for me to get in my car, drive up [to the monastery] if I didn’t think, “Oh, I’m going to save my career.” And when I got here, a change happened. It was like Three Card Monte. It was as if someone had framed me, it felt like. Not in a bad way. In a way that I couldn’t see it. I was so close I couldn’t see it. I see it differently now that time has passed.
