Transformers 3 opens at midnight tonight, meaning it’s time for media outlets to run all the stories they have on the castmembers. Details Magazine hit the jackpot with a profile on Shia Lebwaff, who “admitted” hooking up with Megan Fox, and by admitted I mean ran around giving everyone high fours. But first, here’s the summary of the article Details sent me, which isn’t at all grandiose…
LaBeouf has thrown as many punches as he has parties, he has a rap sheet as long as his filmography, and when he’s not pissing off studio heads, he’s messing around with another guy’s girlfriend. But the 25-year-old Transformers star might also be the most honest man in Hollywood. He lives by a code built on fierce integrity, recoils from material possessions, cherishes poetry and art, and despises all things phony. More than meets the eye? Damn right.
What a coincidence, I TOO cherish poetry and despise all things phony! GIVE! MY! INTEGRITY! A SEVEN! (*finger snaps*) Man. Our standards of “tough-guy movie star” have fallen a long way since Charles Bronson was chewing tobacco and losing his virginity at the age of five.
Asked if he hooked up with Megan Fox, LaBeouf nods affirmatively. “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,” he explains. “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.” When I inquire about Fox’s status at the time with her longtime boyfriend, Brian Austin Green, LaBeouf replies, “I don’t know, man. I don’t know. I don’t know. I don’t know . . .”—repeating the phrase exactly 12 times in various intonations, as if trying to get it just right. Finally, he says, “It was what it was.”
Repeating one phrase over and over again? Hmm, doesn’t sound like the LaBeouf I know….
I guess I can understand wanting to be quoted just right. It takes a lot of courage to admit banging a guy’s girlfriend. Especially when he’s as intimidating as this:
All I’m saying is, watch your back, bro. Broaaaahhhoooohhh. B-B-B-R-Oooahhhoooh.
