Shia Labeouf still gives certain percentage to his first agent

download Teresa Dahlquist, the woman who was Shia Labeouf’s first agent revealed that she still gets a cut of his movie pay checks. In an interview with Access Hollywood she talked about how she started working with the actor.

She said: “He called me on the phone at 7.30 in the morning and said, ‘I need an agent!’ He found me in the Yellow Pages… I saw right away that he was unbelievable.” Labeouf got smaller parts in Freaks and Geeks and E.R. and then got the lead in Even Stevens that really launched him.

As the time passed Shia was becoming more and more popular and too big for Teresa to handle so he had to start working with bigger agents but he never forgot the woman who brought him his first roles. “The bigger agents were after him and you really do have to let go but he kept me receiving a certain percentage. I still get Shia LaBeouf money,” she said.
