She’s also known for a seemingly volatile on/off relationship with Shia LaBeouf. Here’s what else to know about Mia Goth as news emerges that she will be joining the MCU in an unknown role.
1. While Mia is British, she grew up in Brazil.
She was born in London but moved to her Brazilian mother’s homeland as a child. She was raised there before moving back to England when she was a teenager.
2. Before acting, Mia got her start as a model.
After she moved back to London, she was discovered by Storm Model Management when she was just 13. Her slim figure, alluring eyes and pillowy lips landed her numerous modeling campaigns. She’s currently the face of Prada’s latest fragrance.
3. Mia has had a tumultuous on/off relationship with Shia LaBeouf.
Mia has had a famously tumultuous relationship with Holes actor Shia LaBeouf, punctuated by drama and intermittent splits. The romance began in 2012. However, in Mar. 2016, he told a cashier at an Los Angeles area Gelson’s that he was marrying Mia, and she was spotted with a diamond engagement ring on her hand.
4. She’s reportedly now married.
They held a quickie commitment ceremony in Las Vegas in 2016 — with an Elvis Presley impersonator officiating! It wasn’t a legal wedding, according to a local official — but Shia later confirmed the marriage on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

The duo reconciled in February 2022 amid news of Mia’s pregnancy with the Transformers actor.

Shia and Mia welcomed their first child together in March of 2022, with PEOPLE confirming the news after the couple was seen in April of 2022 pushing a stroller in Pasadena. Later, another outlet reported that Shia had shared both the sex and name of their child.
“I have a little girl, Isabel; she is five months old and just beginning to develop the last half of her laugh; it’s AMAZING,” he reportedly wrote in a letter to Olivia Wilde, published by Variety in August of 2022. “Mia, my wife & I have found each other again & are journeying toward a healthy family with love and mutual respect.”
