It's insane and crazy what people will do these days. Art director Mario Licato was randomly punched in New York by a stranger who said he did it just because he looked exactly like Shia LaBeouf.

After a black eye and some stitches, Licato received a voicemail from Shia LaBeouf himself.

He said, in Licato's words:

“It was a pretty long voicemail. He was like, ‘Hey, this is Shia LaBeouf … I just read an article that you were punched in the face because you look like me?’ And he was like, ‘Aw, man. That sucks. I’m so sorry. But I get it. It’s happened to me before.’And then he was like, ‘I don’t know. I wish I was in New York. I’d come bring you soup.’ He was just like, ‘This sucks. I don’t even know what to say. I’m sorry. People are just crazy. Just because you look like me?’ I was obviously laughing the whole time. And then he was like, ‘Here’s my phone number. Don’t give it to anybody. Please, please, call me back. Call me back if you want to. We could chat. Let’s giggle over this. Maybe there’s a silver lining in all this. But call me back.’ And then he was like, ‘And once again, this is Shia LaBeouf, the guy you got hit for looking like. And yeah, man, I’m sorry. I’m just really sorry.’ And he was like ‘Keep your head up, G.’ And that was it.”

Hopefully, Licato doesn't get punched again.
