Shia LaBeouf Generous Shia Labeouf still makes sure the aged agent who gave him his first big break gets a cut of his movie pay cheques.

Retired Teresa Dahlquist, who has launched a new reality TV show with her sisters on Oprah Winfrey's TV network OWN, has revealed she signed on to represent the Transformers star when he was an 11-year-old hopeful.

She tells U.S. news show Access Hollywood, "He called me on the phone at 7.30 in the morning and said, 'I need an agent!' He found me in the Yellow Pages (phone book)... I saw right away that he was unbelievable."

Dahlquist landed the young star cameos in TV shows like Freaks & Geeks and E.R. - and then he really broke it big as the lead on Disney series Even Stevens.

But LaBeouf became too big for his first agent to handle and she had to let him go.

Dahlquist recalls, "The bigger agents were after him and you really do have to go but he kept me receiving a certain percentage. I still get Shia LaBeouf (money)."
