Fun fact: Shia Labeouf has been arrested five times.

Even more fun fact: He made a "terrific egg sandwich" during his last incarceration.

The actor and walking performance art piece gabs about his many run-ins with the law in Prison Ramen, a new book about celebrities and how being locked up has affected them.

Let's break down Shia's arrests from E! News:

That time he stole some Nike Cortezes.

"I have been incarcerated five times. The first time I was only nine years old. It was in Pacoima, California. I was arrested for stealing a pair of Nike Cortezes from a local shop and held for six hours," he writes.

That time he stole a Gameboy Pokémon.

"The second time I was eleven, in the city of Tujunga, California. I was arrested for stealing a Gameboy Pokémon from Kmart. That time, too, I was in a substation for about six hours," he continues.

That time he tried to stab his neighbor.

"The third time I was twenty, in Van Nuys, California. I tried to stab my neighbor and spent two days in jail. While I was there, I at least understood that being in jail is not the move," he admits. "It sucks ass."

That time he wouldn't leave Walgreen's and that time he disrupted a Broadway show.

"The fourth time I was in Chicago and I wouldn't leave Walgreen's, so I was taken to spend the night in jail. For some reason, I had the best sleep ever," he writes. "The most recent time was 2014, when I was twenty-eight and in New York City. I went to see the play Cabaret. I didn't behave very well during the performance and ended up spending twenty-five hours or so behind bars..."

Your kids may never sleep again.

Jack Zipes, a professor emeritus of German and comparative literature at the University of Minnesota, has released the first English translation of the original book of fairy tales by brothers Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm.

The first edition was published in December 1812, and over the years, the stories went through a gradual transformation, edited to be less disturbing and and to include more Christian references.

"The Original Folk and Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm: The Complete First Edition" included all the really creepy stuff that was originally filtered out.

For example, in the heartwarming tale "How the Children Played at Slaughtering":

A boy cuts the throat of his little brother, only to be stabbed in the heart by his enraged mother. Unfortunately, the stabbing meant she left her other child alone in the bath, where he drowned. Unable to be cheered up by the neighbours, she hangs herself; when her husband gets home, "he became so despondent that he died soon thereafter".

Look out "Frozen." Sounds like Disney has its new princess!

Author Lois Lowry's modern despotic tale written specifically for a younger audience takes place in a future where all the unpleasantries of life have been taken away; even color became a thing of the past. The story's main character is a boy chosen to become the Receiver of Memory -- the only person who can recall what life was like before all of these changes occurred. But as he begins this process, he realizes things aren't exactly as they seem and decides to take measures into his own hands for the sake of good.
