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.
Gotta love Shia and his throw-caution-to-the-wind ways. You just know that boyfriend’s going to get an angry, shrill phone call from Megan, like, later today where she threatens him to retract his statement or suffer the wrath of David Silver‘s cheap 90′s 90210 hoop earrings.

Before I start, let me just say that I am not a huge fan of the Indiana Jones movies, not by a long shot. I never watched them as a kid, just like I never watched Star Wars. I watched them when I was a teenager because my best friend wants the best for me and, for what it’s worth (and also please don’t hate me for this), I liked Indiana Jones way more than Star Wars, although I never got to watch The Last Crusade. I did watch the Crystal Skull nonsense though. So just know that I am not taking this from a fanatical viewpoint, I am taking this from the viewpoint of someone who enjoys quality films.
“I talked to Harrison. He said he’s staying in the gym. He said he’s heard no word, but he does know that George [Lucas] is out there looking for a MacGuffin (plot device),” said LaBeouf. “He said he’s staying in the gym, so it means, you know, it’s not so far off.”
The way I see it, I’m either completely justified in my fears for all you hardcore Indy fans or I just need to calm my heart and stop feeling so strongly about things I’m not that invested in. What do you guys think?

So, at first I didn’t really get Shia LaBeouf and Carey Mulligan as a couple. I guess I didn’t realize that she’s completely adorable and seemingly normal and that maybe, just maybe, having his fingers taped together for over a year has taught Shia a lesson in slowing down. Then today I saw these photos of the pair at a craft store in the Valley. They were smiling, consulting with each other on purchases, she adorably propped her little head up against the canvas she was holding outside while he enjoyed a cigarette. She doesn’t even seem annoyed that she has to stand there and wait with him while holding that huge thing. I mean, I think I have a crush on this cool-looking, put together, sweet girl. I want to do crafts with her too! That seems safe and comfortable, and dare I say, the kind of normalcy that most people crave. I think these two could hang in there for awhile.

Shia LaBeouf enjoys a cigarette and does a little bit of adjusting on the set of his new film, Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps (can you believe they’re actually making that???).

Shia LeBeouf has been seen around town with a new lady friend who has a not-so-familiar face and many want to know: Who’s the lady who’s boning the kid from Even Stevens?
Turns out this little lady’s name is Cary Mulligan, she’s a 24 year old British lass who’s Shia’s co-star in the upcoming film Money Never Sleeps. You may recognize her from Pride & Prejudice and claims that she used Keira Knightly as her acting coach while filming, telling the New York Times “I was a real tomboy until was 15 – I didn’t have my first kiss until a month away from being 16. So I just copied everything Keira did for weeks. She is still amazing to me.”
Copying Knightly turned out to be a smart move for Mulligan, as she landed a role in a film that put her right next to LeBeouf who she’s been quite friendly with while filming in NYC. A witness who saw the two in Greenwich Village spilled, “They were talking, laughing and smiling and seemed very close.”

Transformersactor Shia LaBeouf is one troubled dude. He’s talked before about his non-conventional upbringing, but now is relating more details of his disturbing childhood.
He explains that his sense of humor comes from an inappropriate childhood of “seeing my parents have sex, smoke weed, my mom being naked … [and] twisted R-rated humor.”
And yeah, he may have issues, but apparently he’s in good company. “The good actors are all screwed up. They’re all in pain. It’s a profession of bottom-feeders and heartbroken people.” Honestly? Thank God everyone in Hollywood is screwed up. What would I do with my days?
Despite all the instability and substance abuse that surrounded him as a kid, he still hasn’t connected that to his own demons that he is struggling with. “I have no answers to anything. None. Why am I an alcoholic? I haven’t a damn clue!” Personally, I was just so relieved for Shia to admit that he’s an alcoholic. It allows me to go to the safe place in my brain that assumes he was drunk when he talked about wanting to bang his mom.
Therapy, dude. Therapy. It will help work through so many of these issues that no kid should be saddled with.
