Remember When Shia LaBeouf Was a Cute Disney Kid?

Louis Stevens forever.

These days, Shia LaBeouf gets more attention for his anti-fame antics than his acting. (His next film Man Down with Kate Mara comes out October 30, in case you were wondering.) However, remember when this (now) rattailed 28-year-old played adorkable Louis Stevens on Disney Channel’s Even Stevens? (Or, better yet, shoe felon Stanley Yelnats in 2003’s Holes?) He was so cute with his big hair and even bigger goofy grin. Luckily, the Internet is full of 2003 LaBeouf snapshots. Here are 15 prime gems.
