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 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.
Shia LaBeouf is running his mouth again, this time about the size of his wee-wee. Turns out he’s no Tommy Lee. Shia talked to Playboy about losing his virginity and all the accompanying awkwardness:
“I was shaking in my boots,” he says about the romp, four years ago. “Getting naked was very strange. It was the first time I’d been naked in the light, in front of a girl, with no hiding place … I remember putting a pillow underneath her because I had seen that in a porn movie … [It] put her at a weird angle, where I couldn’t get in correctly. I’m not extremely well-endowed … and clearly this wasn’t the move.
So let this be a warning to everyone: Trying to copy what you see in porn isn’t always the best idea. Also, it makes you look like a porn star. Seriously, folks, if he wants to to spit on it the first time you get down and dirty, he’s not really all that into your personality. Say no thank you and leave.
In an interview for the June issue of Playboy, Shia LaBeouf reveals that his hippie mother used to wander around the house naked– even when he would have friends over– and that he was exposed to drug use from a young age:
“The nudity was weird, especially when her friends came over. ..All of them would just be naked around the house. That was strange for me, and it was really bizarre when my friends were there. You’ve got your little buds over, and Mom’s, like, playing naked connect the dots or whatever. She’s in the middle of goddess-group time, where it’s literally a bunch of naked women tracing auras around one another’s bodies with incense and then sitting together and humming for prolonged periods of time.”
His mother and father were also open about their drug use, which has given him a liberal attitude toward it as well. “I grew up with a bunch of hippies, and marijuana was always around,” he says. “Pot was never looked at as a negative thing. I could smoke it on holidays with my parents, and we were all good. I like pot. It has never been a monster for me. I can put limits on it. But I definitely saw from a very young age what drugs can do to you.”
Wow.. I can’t wait for his autobiography. A few years ago, I remember reading an article in GQ that gave the more PG, “mainstream” version of his childhood (sans naked mommies and massive drug use) and even that was engrossing and out of the ordinary. Something tells me we still haven’t heard everything there is to tell about Shia’s decidedly non-traditional upbringing.
Thank you, celebrities, for making me realize just how lucky I was to have parents that were weird and embarrassing in what turns out were very “normal” ways. I could have had a mom whose idea of consoling me after a stressfull day at school involved rolling me a joint and tracing my naked aura.
Whoops! Shia LaBeouf has finally had his license suspended after his refusal to take a Breathalyzer test following the July car crash that left his hand mangled.
The Eagle Eye star had his driver’s license suspended Saturday, a result of his refusal to take a Breathalyzer test when he was busted on suspicion of driving under the influence following a July car crash, a DMV official tells E! News.
“It was suspended for refusing a chemical test,” the official said, noting that, even though LaBeouf was cleared of any DUI charges after it was determined that the other driver caused his smashup, the suspension was “automatic.”
California law states that a person’s license can be suspended for up to one year if he/she refuses to take a blood, breath or urine test for a suspected DUI.
I hope Shia’s suffered enough consequences from this that he’ll think twice before he gets behind the wheel drunk.
