Let's start with a few light questions for the hot young actor, Shia LaBeouf, star of the upcoming "Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen."

]]>1. Where did he get his sense of humor?

SL: "[From] seeing my parents have sex, smoke weed, my mom being naked … and twisted R-rated humor," he tells the latest issue of Parade magazine.

2. Why are so many actors so messed up?

SL: "Actors live dependent on being validated by other people's opinions," he says in Parade. "I don't understand what it is I do that people want. I don't know what an actor does. I have no credentials. I don't know what I'm doing…. I think acting is a con game."

3. Why is he so insecure?

SL: "I have no idea where this insecurity comes from, but it's a God-sized hole," he told Parade. "If I knew, I'd fill it, and I'd be on my way… Sometimes I feel I'm living a meaningless life and I get frightened. I know I'm one of the luckiest dudes in America right now…. I've got money. I'm famous. But it could all change, man. It could go away. You never know."

4. So what's life all about?

SL: "Why am I an alcoholic? I haven't a … clue! What is life about? I don't know."

So glad we had this chat.

Excuse me while I go find a razor blade so I can open a vein.
