I think Shia LaBeouf must have some sort of chemical reaction to the presence of a microphone, because every interview he does makes him sound like the reporter caught him right after doing an eight-ball in the bathroom. I mean, the guy just goes on and on with no filter whatsoever—do you remember that Playboy piece where he said his mom was the sexiest woman he knew, and that if he could meet her and marry her, he would? HELLO SHIA YOU SOUND DERANGED AND POSSIBLY REALLY HIGH.
His latest overshare is in the August issue of Details magazine, where he confessed that he did in fact hook up with Megan Fox on the set of Transformers back in the day. Here's how he explained it:
Look, you’re on the set for six months, with someone who’s rooting to be attracted to you, and you’re rooting to be attracted to them. I never understood the separation of work and life in that situation. But the time I spent with Megan was our own thing, and I think you can see the chemistry onscreen.
Right, how can you possibly separate work from life when you are immersed in your art? That's just solid method acting, people. For six months Shia apparently believed that cars turned into giant robots and that it was his job to swarm Megan Fox's vagina like a horny weak-chinned spider monkey.
When asked if Fox was still with her then-boyfriend/now-husband Brian Austin Green at the time she inexplicably allowed LaBeouf to, ah, detail her interior, Shia reportedly said, "I don’t know, man," then repeated the phrase "I don't know" TWELVE MORE TIMES before concluding that "it was what it was."
God, this guy is obnoxious. I have disliked him ever since I saw him as a child actor on the show Project Greenlight. He had just rocketed to fame from Holes and he was an insufferable little jackass with what appeared to be a giant perm. Now he thinks he's the hottest shit on the planet, and when he's not bashing the big-budget films that have made him a star (on Indiana Jones: "I felt like we dropped the ball on a legacy"; on the second Transformers film: "I wasn't impressed with what we did"), he's apparently telling the world how he likes to bang his female costars.
The really gross thing about this disclosure is how he totally implies that Fox cheated on her boyfriend with him. I mean, if she did, well, that was clearly a bad move for her, but what's the point in him telling a magazine about it now? Especially considering Fox actually married Brian Austin Green and is now a stepmom to his kid. I'm not exactly a big Megan Fox fan, but even I'm on her side on this one.
Plus, I think he just wants everyone to believe he also got it on with uberhot Rosie Huntington-Whiteley on the set of Transformers: Dark of the Moon because, you know, he can't understand the separation of work and life and all. Please please PLEASE let us find out that Huntington-Whiteley's nickname for him is "Shia LaBarf."
What do you think about Shia LaBeouf's confession about Megan Fox? Fair play, or low blow?
