Shia LaBeouf knew the government was listening to our cellphone conversations way before the rest of us. But, because he's Shia LaBeouf, we didn't listen.

While promoting his 2008 thriller "Eagle Eye," the actor told Jay Leno that the film's FBI consultant revealed some of the government's spying secrets to him. LaBeouf didn't believe them to be true, until the consultant played a racy convo from the actor's past.

Moral of the story? Always heed Shia's warnings.
