Shia LaBeouf, my, how you have grown.

It's hard to imagine that 10 years ago, LaBeouf was a fixture on the Disney Channel. Today, the hunky thesp turns 26 and is living proof that successful child actors can become successful adult stars.

Since his Disney debut in 2000 as Louis Stevens on the hit TV show, Even Stevens, LaBeouf has "transformed" himself from child star to sexy leading man.

In recent years, Shia has kept himself busy with filming the Transformers trilogy, starring alongside hottie Megan Fox—yes, the two shared some steamy, on- (and maybe off-) screen kisses. Additionally, he was linked to Wall Street costar Carey Mulligan, whom he met while filming, until October 2010.

LaBeouf will next appear alongside Tom Hardy in Lawless, a Prohibition-era drama to be released in August 2012 about bootlegging brothers who become heroes after tangling with the law.

Shia's mastered the arts of acting and growing up; we can't wait until his next birthday.
