Mia Goth: The Rising Star and Wife of Shia LaBeouf
Mia Goth is a British actress who has been making waves in the film industry with her versatile and captivating performances. She is also the wife of Shia LaBeouf, the controversial and talented actor who has been in the spotlight since his childhood. In this blog post, we will explore the life and career of Mia Goth, from her humble beginnings to her recent achievements.
Early Life and Family
Mia Goth was born on October 25, 1993, in Southwark, London, England. Her mother is Brazilian and her father is Canadian, originally from Nova Scotia. Her maternal grandparents are American artist Lee Jaffe and Brazilian actress Maria Gladys. Goth moved to Brazil when she was a few weeks old, because her mother, who was 20 at the time, needed help from her family to raise her. They returned to the United Kingdom when she was five and briefly relocated to her father’s native Canada when she was ten. There, she attended nine schools in a single school year; Goth said that the period when they tried living with her father was very difficult. When she was twelve, she and her mother settled in southeast London, where she attended Sydenham School. Goth’s mother raised her in a single-parent household, working as a waitress to support them.
Modeling and Acting Career
At the age of 14, Goth was discovered at the Underage Festival in London by fashion photographer Gemma Booth, who signed her to Storm Model Management. She subsequently appeared in advertising campaigns for Miu Miu and Prada, as well as in the magazines Wonderland, Vogue, Vogue Italia, W, Love, Dazed, Interview, AnOther, British Vogue, Document Journal, Glamour and Pirelli. Goth made her runway debut in 2023, opening the Miu Miu F/W 23 Show.
Goth began to audition for films at 16, and after finishing sixth form, won her first role in Lars von Trier’s Nymphomaniac (2013), along with Charlotte Gainsbourg and Willem Dafoe in the segment “The Gun”. She gained further recognition with films such as The Survivalist (2015), High Life (2018), Suspiria (2018), Emma (2020) and Infinity Pool (2023). Goth achieved a career breakthrough in 2022 when she starred in the X slasher film series installments X and Pearl, the latter of which she also co-wrote.
Personal Life and Controversies
Goth met her husband, actor Shia LaBeouf, while filming Nymphomaniac in 2012. They had a tumultuous relationship, marked by several breakups and reconciliations. On October 10, 2016, Goth and LaBeouf appeared to get married in a Las Vegas ceremony officiated by an Elvis impersonator. Two days later, a local official claimed that the pair wasn’t legally married, but instead a commitment ceremony was performed. In September 2018, it was announced the couple had separated and filed for divorce. However, in March 2022, they reconciled and welcomed their first child, a daughter named Isabel.
Goth and LaBeouf have also been involved in some controversies, such as being arrested for public intoxication in 2015, and being accused of plagiarism and sexual battery in 2020. Goth has defended her husband, saying that he is a “brilliant man” and that she is “incredibly proud” of him.
