GREENEVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - Reports of Shia LaBeouf sightings have fans excited in Greeneville,Tennessee.

WJHL reports that restaurant employees have been sharing social media photos of the actor. LaBeouf acted in Disney Channel programming, and more recently appeared in the Transformers films and last year in American Honey.

“He just walked in and sat down,” said Rachel Stapleton, an employee of Aunt Bea’s Restaurant on Tusculum Boulevard. “I thought – that guy looks like Shia LaBeouf.”

“Eventually, I think he realized people noticed it was him,” co-worked Laiken Morrow said. “So as he was leaving, I asked him, ‘Are you Shia LaBeouf?'” “He said ‘Yeah’ so I asked if he minded a quick photo,” she said.

Morrow and Stapleton said the actor agreed to a photo. When they asked his reason for stopping in, he answered that he had friends in the area.

LaBeouf has made headlines taking part in public protests against President Donald Trump.
