Shia LaBeouf struts in sparkly gold high heels and flowing white dress on the set of Megalopolis


Former Disney Channel star Shia LaBeouf got in full drag on the Atlanta set of five-time Oscar winner Francis Ford Coppola’s $100M-budget epic Megalopolis on Wednesday night.

The 36-year-old Daytime Emmy winner traded his character’s prior black leather costume for a white Grecian gown beneath a golden corset, gold headdress, matching tiny purse and gladiator heels selected by costume designer Milena Canonero.

Shia – who’s making a comeback despite seven prior arrests – pulled out all the stops with his hair styled in retro spit curls and black acrylic manicure.

Werrrk! Former Disney Channel star Shia LaBeouf got in full drag on the Atlanta set of five-time Oscar winner Francis Ford Coppola’s $100M-budget epic Megalopolis on Wednesday night

Make-up artist Kris Evans applied LaBeouf’s vampy lipstick and used glue stick and concealer to hide his natural brows beneath thin penciled-on ones.

But unlike real drag queens, the Padre Pio star – who welcomed daughter Isabel with Mia Goth in March – did not wear any breast or hip padding to more authentically emulate his feminine side.

Last May, Shia successfully completed a year-long judicial diversion program stemming from 2020 misdemeanor battery and petty theft charges.

LaBeouf will next face his ex-girlfriend – Grammy nominee FKA twigs – in a civil trial over sexual battery allegations, which is scheduled for April 17, according to Rolling Stone.

The British 35-year-old also accused the the Echo Park native of assault, infliction of emotional distress, and infecting her with a sexually-transmitted disease during their turbulent 11-month relationship in a lawsuit she filed in LA in 2020.

In the scene, Shia arrived to a theater in a stretch limousine alongside SNL star Chloe Fineman and 20+ other pink-clad Grecian goddesses for the night shoot, which originally began November 1 at Trilith Studios.

It’s hard to believe the 34-year-old NoCal native even has the time to fly back and forth from Georgia to New York while preparing to star in this week’s episode of the long-running NBC sketch show.

Two ladies were seen dancing on top of the limo wile clutching champagne bottles for the scene in Megalopolis, which is about ‘an architect wanting to rebuild New York City as a utopia following a devastating disaster.’

Also spotted on the set on Wednesday was Oscar winner Jon Voight wearing a fancy black-and-gold suit and golden headdress.

After THR published an expose on January 9 accusing the 82-year-old filmmaker of ‘being in peril with a ballooning budget and crew exodus,’ he clapped back that he was ‘on schedule and on budget.’

‘I’ve never worked on a film where I was so happy with the cast,’ Coppola – who sold a piece of his wine empire in order fund Megalopolis – told Deadline on January 10.

‘I am so happy with the look and that we are so on schedule. These reports never say who these sources are. To them, I say, ha, ha, just wait and see. Because this is a beautiful film and primarily so because the cast is so great. I’ve never enjoyed working with a cast who are so hardworking and so willing to go search for the unconventional, to come upon hidden solutions.

‘It is a thrill to work with these actors and the photography is everything I could hope for. The dailies are great. So if we’re on schedule, and I love the actors and the look is great, I don’t know what anyone’s talking about here.’

Two-time Oscar nominee Adam Driver – who acts in the film – called Megalopolis ‘one of the best shooting experiences I’ve had’ but acknowledged: ‘Yes, it is true that the art department resigned and VFX were let go.’

Francis cast his younger sister Talia Shire, nephew Jason Schwartzman, and Oscar winner Dustin Hoffman (despite resurfaced sexual assault allegations).

Coppola (pictured November 7)- who sold a piece of his wine empire in order fund Megalopolis - told Deadline on January 10: 'The photography is everything I could hope for. The dailies are great.

Coppola’s star-studded ensemble also includes Giancarlo Esposito, Nathalie Emmanuel, Laurence Fishburne, Forest Whitaker, Aubrey Plaza, Grace VanderWaal, James Remar, and D.B. Sweeney.

‘We’ll finish the film in spring of 2023, and we’re totally on schedule, which is hard to do on a big picture,’ the legendary Godfather director noted.

‘I don’t know how many films can say that eight weeks in but we are and that’s a fact.’
