With his new movie "Lawless" hitting theaters today (August 29), Shia LaBeouf garnered himself a little added exposure by covering the September 2012 issue of L'Uomo Vogue! magazine.

The 26-year-old actor bundled up in a fur-collared black coat for the Mark Seliger shot front page while dishing about everything from his childhood to life outside of acting.

Highlights from Mr LaBeouf's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to L'Uomo Vogue!

On life outside of acting:
“When I’m not on the set, my life is the gym, a light meal, long walks with my dog Brando, and home. I’ve been spending lots of time alone lately."

On his new scruffy look:
"I’m preparing for my next film with Werner Herzog where I play a hermit: that’s the reason for the long hair and scraggly beard. I even built myself a shed on the mountains."

On his rough childhood:
“I grew up quickly. I’m an only child: I cooked for myself when I was nine because my father was a heroin addict and my mom worked three jobs to support us. There weren’t today’s bullies at school, but we endured military-style hazing designed to humiliate you in front of the others. I was already a man at age ten."
