Leave it to Shia LaBeouf to have a wedding that's anything but traditional. The Disney kid-turned-movie star-turned-avante garde performance artist got married in Las Vegas on Monday afternoon to his longtime girlfriend Mia Goth. Check out the video of the nuptials below.
The surprise wedding was held in the Viva Las Vegas chapel and officiated by an Elvis Presley impersonator, TMZ reports.
Shia LaBeouf appears elated in the video, as he claps along to the music and raises his arm to the sky after he is told to kiss the bride. It also appears as though the couple were wed without family or friends present, as only a very sparse smattering of applause can be heard in the video after LaBeouf and Mia Goth kiss.
Shia LaBeouf began dating Mia Goth in 2012. They met on the set of the art film Nymphomaniac: Volume II, which served as Goth's acting debut. The film also marked a noted departure for LaBeouf, who began transitioning away from blockbuster action films such as Transformers and Indiana Jones and towards smaller arthouse films and his own performance art projects.
Around this time last year, Shia LaBeouf and Maria Goth were also making headlines, but for much different reasons. While in Germany together, LaBeouf and Goth erupted into a public fight on the street, and LaBeouf stated that he "would have killed her" had he not been separated from Goth by a cab driver. But the couple seemed to make up pretty quickly afterwards, as Goth was spotted wearing a diamond engagement ring at the start of 2016, which spurred rumors that LaBeouf had proposed to her. Of course, now it seems that those rumors were true.
Mia Goth has been Shia LaBeouf's only notable romantic partner since he stepped away from franchise films and began experimenting in art. LaBeouf has made waves in recent years for his bizarre performance art pieces, which have included wearing a paper bag over his head reading "I Am Not Famous Anymore" on a red carpet, screaming "Do It!" repeatedly in a viral video project, and renting out a New York theater to watch every movie he'd ever acted in for a three-day marathon.
Before Mia Goth, Shia LaBeouf dated his The Greatest Game Ever Played costar China Brezner throughout the mid-2000s, and then his Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps costar Carey Mulligan in 2009. LaBeouf said that he and Mulligan split up because they were focused on different lifestyles, telling the Sunday Morning Times that she was more interested in marriage than he was. In that 2012 interview, he went on to say something that should make his new bride Mia Goth very happy: that he's only getting married once.
I'm not opposed to marriage. I just think I'm quite young. I come from divorce. I'm only doing marriage once. It's not a game for me.
Well, I'll give him this much --- this will definitely be a wedding he'll remember. Congrats to the newlyweds!
