Is there a bigger toolbox in the world than Shia LaBeouf? I know that’s a difficult question to answer when people like Justin Bieber and Chris Brown exist, but I feel like they’re in a different league. Shia is just… corny, and a total dickhead who doesn’t realise he’s a dickhead, he thinks he’s being “artsy”. That’s why, in preparation for his role in Charlie Countryman, he decided to drop acid to really get into his character’s head. One problem with that: the character never took acid, he took ecstasy, and according to the film’s director Fredrik Bond, he didn’t need to take anything at all.
“In the script, it’s Carpathian ecstasy, a special hostel ecstasy that exists in maybe just Bucharest … So, Shia said he took acid? I didn’t know he went out and said that. But it was always ecstasy in the script.” Did Bond know Shia was going to take Method acting this far? “No, he informed me that he was going to go out on a limb and push the envelope,” Bond said. “He said he wants to make this like they did in the seventies; he was like, ‘I want it to be like there’s a gun against my head.’” Must have been the acid talking.
I’m rolling my eyes so hard. The whole thing is so contrived and try-hard… and Shia isn’t even a GOOD actor. What an absolute idiot.

Shia LaBeouf is a total mess, and I can’t imagine any woman would find him attractive. And yet, he obviously thinks he’s the shit and that it was a good idea to post a photo of himself naked on Twitter. Of course, it cuts off just above The D (thank God, I’ve just had my breakfast), but even the little bit we see is enough to make me gag.
The photo isn’t some random selfie he took when bored (though I’m sure he’s got plenty of those on his phone), but it is from a movie called Charlie Countryman, in which he plays an American living in Romania who falls in love with a woman that has ties to a gangster. Sounds pretty generic and not at all exciting, but Melissa Leo is in it and she’s great. On the other hand, Rupert Grint (Ron from Harry Potter) also stars. LOL, I kid, love u Ron.

Shia LaBeouf has always been a bit of a douchebag and frankly, I think a punch in the face is the least of what he needs. In any case, apparently he got two of them while out in London recently. He was walking around Leicester Square one night when he noticed two drunk women walking around. One of the women was sick, and Shia thought it’d be a totally awesome idea to start filming them both on his phone. He was asked to stop, he refused to do… and so a stranger punched him twice in the face.
The Sun claims that a bouncer from a nearby club split up the scuffle, and Shia and whatever friend he was with ran away like little bitches. Because of course they did.
Listen, there are so many things wrong here. I don’t condone violence, but what grown man thinks it’s a great idea to film two women against their will – drunk or not – on his phone while out at night? That’s not at all creepy or fucking weird or anything. Then, you’re asked to stop, and YOU REFUSE? I want to meet the stranger who socked him in the face so that I can shake his hand and thank him for his contribution to society.

Chris Brown is a hated celebrity but apparently not as much as Anne Hathaway (which James Franco totally gets, btw). Star magazine released their super scientific list of top 20 most hated Hollywood celebrities. Weirdly Jay Leno is more hated than Chris Brown, which is making me laugh really hard. Here’s the stupid list:
20. Chris Brown
19. Jesse James
18. Taylor Swift
17. Shia LaBeouf
16. Lindsay Lohan
15. Angelina Jolie
14. Jay Leno
13. Ashton Kutcher
12. LeAnn Rimes
10 and 11. Kris Jenner and Kim Kardashian
9. Anne Hathaway
8. Justin Bieber
6. Matt Lauer
5. Katherine Heigl
4. John Mayer
3. Jennifer Lopez
2. Kristen Stewart
1. Gwyneth Paltrow
This is a pretty good list. I’m shocked to see that Kanye West isn’t on here. I love him but I thought he was one of the most hated people around. I’m not sure if he’s psyched or pissed not to be included. I also didn’t realize that people hated Matt Lauer this much. Damn. Too bad this poll was taken after Justin Bieber’s idiotic Anne Frank statement or I’m sure he would be higher up. Kristen Stewart now has the dubious honor of being one of the most hated and least attractive female celebrities. Hey, good for her! At least she’s good at stuff!
Who is your ultimate most hated celebrity?

Shia LaBeouf has been a bit of a mess since… well, always, but especially ever since quitting Broadway’s production of Orphans in February over “creative differences” with co-star Alec Baldwin. Then he started posting all of his private emails and antagonizing Alec and even showed up to a performance of the show and stared him down the whole time. But he’s totally not fucking with him, not at all!
While appearing on David Letterman, Shia explained that he “had tension, as men – not as artists – as men” with Alec. Uh, okay.
“I’m pretty passionate and impulsive, and he’s a very passionate individual as well. And I think that impulsiveness and that passion make for some fireworks.”
He went on to say that he went to see Orphans as “a fan” and thinks Alec Baldwin is generally a “good dude”. Well, that’s a relief. I don’t even get what this whole thing is about. Shia was probably being a little twerp during rehearsals and Alec swatted him down like an annoying fly, which he didn’t take too well to and up and quit. That’s just my take, but what else even makes sense here?

Shia LaBeouf is a really good internet troll, and he’s bringing his love of unleashing madcap asshattery to real life! You may recall that Mr. LaBeouf was going to make his Broadway debut with Alec Baldwin in a play titled Orphans. About 2 weeks in, Shia “You’re Not My Real Dad, My Real Dad Always Lets Me Have Tostinos Pizza Rolls Before Bedtime” LaBeouf started to lose it and was fired. There were rumors he brought a real knife to rehearsals and couldn’t work with Mr. Baldwin.
After Mr. LaBeouf’s exit, he got 4chan on everyone by turning into an internet troll, screwing with his former cast and crew. He sent everyone a long and bizarre letter about “what it means to be a man” that sounded sort of like an apology and turned out to be an article he copied from Esquire.
Not done yet, he tweeted screen caps of private emails. Emails from the play’s director to Shia “I Play By Fourth Grade Rules” LaBeouf and emails from LaBeouf to Baldwin and vice versa. He also tweeted something about theater actors that was definitely a veiled reference to Baldwin, so Baldwin referred to film actors as “celebrity chefs”. This provoked LaBeouf to then tweet a screen cap one of Baldwin’s emails, coupled with the word “chef.”
You caught up?
The damn play finally opened (in previews) yesterday, with Ben Foster in LaBeouf’s role. And guess who was sitting in the front row?
A spokeswoman for the production told The New York Times that LaBeouf turned up solo after buying a ticket and did not formally alert producers that he planned on attending.
Well, duh. What fun would that be for him? E Online has more,
At one point midway through the play, Baldwin appeared to notice the thesp from the stage, but did not react. At the curtain call, LaBeouf reportedly was among the first rise to his feet for the standing ovation and applauded fervently. When Ben Foster—the actor who replaced him—took his bow and pointed to him, Shia was said to have smacked the stage with his palm in approval. He then bolted the theater shortly thereafter and could not be reached for comment.
I wish I could have seen Alec Baldwin’s face.
Shia LaBeouf is like a really scaled down, non-threatening, just really annoying version of The Joker. Some men just want to watch the world get lukewarm.
