In a video interview with Word on Fire Catholic Ministries' Bishop Robert Barron on Thursday night the Transformers actor revealed that he considered suicide when his career hit a low point after a string of legal troubles including his ex-girlfriend FKA Twigs suing him for sexual battery, assault, and infliction of emotional distress in December 2020. He said of the dark time, "At this point I'm nuclear. Nobody wants to talk to me, including my mother. My manager's not calling. The agent's not calling. I'm not connected to the business anymore."
