(Newser) – Shia LaBeouf says the hand he mangled in a car crash last July will never be the same. “Permanently fucked,” he told Playboy recently. “I’ll never be back to 100%. I can’t zipper my zipper without extreme pain.” Though he won’t be charged with drunk driving, LaBeouf says he’d had plenty to drink and shouldn’t have gotten behind the wheel. “The hand is like a tattoo that says MISTAKE.”

Now, the 22-year-old is in AA. “Am I an alcoholic? I may not be. But I have no room for alcohol in my life.” LaBeouf also talks about his childhood, from his “hippie” parents (“marijuana was always around”) to being on Disney’s Even Stevens (“Somewhere in the Disney vaults there’s video footage with my penis on it"). And finally, he talks about working with Michael Bay on Transformers. “He’ll blow things up for no reason,” LaBeouf says. “The guy’s a maniac.”
