Wouldn’t you be pissed if you were Shia LaBeouf‘s girlfriend? Pissed at Shia for being such a douchebag, pissed at yourself for making such questionable choices, pissed at the world for putting you in this position. It would be an unpleasant situation in many ways, for sure. But no, this time, Shia’s girlfriend has a pretty specific reason for being angry. It’s because Shia wants to have sex with other people. You know, for Art.
Despite putting on a brave face at the Lawless premiere last week, Shia LaBeouf’s “method” acting is destroying his relationship with girlfriend Karolyn Pho, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
The 26-year-old actor’s volatile romance with the up-and-coming designer hit the skids after the complex actor agreed to star in Nymphomaniac, the controversial movie by daring Danish filmmaker Lars von Trier. Shia has confirmed that he is expected to perform a real sex scene in the flick with one of his co-stars and Karolyn isn’t happy with it.
“They’ve been on the rocks ever since Shia agreed to star in Nymphomaniac,” a source close to the couple revealed. “Karolyn gets that Shia likes to go method and appreciates his artistic integrity. However, she thinks performing a real sex scene in a movie is going too far. It’s difficult for her to understand why it can’t be simulated – just like in other films. She wants him to do the film, because Shia was desperate to work with Lars – he’s such a hero of his. And she doesn’t mind if he strips off completely – she had no qualms about the Sigur Ros music video. But Karolyn doesn’t want him having sex with somebody else – simple. She’s begged Shia to ask Lars if it’s possible to make the scenes appear real, rather than shoot them real,” the source revealed.
Oh, please. Shia LaBeouf is not a “complex” actor. He’s the kid from Even Stevens and Holes who went on to be the guy from Transformers. If he’s made enough money to focus on the projects that he wants to do, or if he’s going through some phase where he wants to seem really edgy or whatever, then good for him. But let’s not pretend that Shia is a Very Serious Actor with Artistic Integrity who needs to be left alone about his Craft.
But I think it goes without saying that I’m on the girlfriend’s side here. Unless you have some sort of prior agreement, or sometimes even if you do, it’s not ridiculous to be upset when your significant other announces that he’s going to have sex with someone who isn’t you. I don’t care if it’s Art (it’s not), girlfriend has a right to be upset, both with Shia and with herself for falling for Louis Stevens. I mean, honestly.
