Talk of seniors in the film industry inspiring newcomers to do more than just acting, and this one could be the perfect example. Reports now suggest that Fury star Shia LaBeouf is so inspired by Hollywood superstar Brad Pitt's commitment that he has decided to do some charity work on his own.

Labeouf, 28, likes the 50-year-old actor's involvement with global causes and wants to follow his path, reports OK! magazine. "Brad's involvement with global causes is something that Shia admires. Shia wants to show people that he's more than an entitled Hollywood punk. He's actually a down-to-earth guy who's been through a lot -- and he's still aiming to come out on top," a source said.

The troubled star, who was arrested earlier this year for disorderly conduct and was later admitted to rehab for alcoholism, is determined to overhaul his image. "Shia realises that he messed up and doesn't want anyone to think that he can't recognise that. There's no question -- he knows that earlier this year he was out of control.

At this point, Shia wants two things to be at the forefront -- his acting and helping others," the source added.
