Los Angeles: Shia LaBeouf, who split from actress Carey Mulligan about a year ago, said he is still in love with her.

The 25-year-old actor admitted that though their relationship has run its course, they continue to be friends, reported Details magazine.

"I still love her. I think she`s an awesome person and an incredible actress. We`re still pals. I wouldn`t take any of it back, and I don`t think she would either. It just ran its course," said LaBeouf.

After establishing himself as one of Hollywood`s most sought after actors, LaBeouf admitted he has become the envy of men.

"It`s not extraordinary envy, like Robert Pattinson fan-worship stuff, but I do feel animosity from men. They feel like they want to challenge me."

The actor recently completed filming John Hillcoat`s forthcoming crime-drama movie `The Wettest County in the World`, about Depression-era bootleggers in the American South.

The film is scheduled for release in 2012 and also stars Gary Oldman and Tom Hardy.
