Class Act: Shia LaBeouf Suggests Megan Fox Cheated On Her Boyfriend With Him During 'Transformers'

Harrison Ford Says What We're All Thinking, Calls LaBeouf A "Fucking Idiot"



It appears that Shia LaBeouf has a mouth that can't be stopped. Just a few weeks after the actor dumped on his former co-star Megan Fox, claiming her unforgivable "Spice Girl strength" and her inability to handle Michael Bay's meticulous directions on where to point her ass got her fired from this weekend's "Transformers: Dark of the Moon." Now, a new Details magazine feature on the actor finds him using the opportunity to throw Fox under the bus yet again, albeit this time in a wholly different way.

Asked by the magazine if he hooked up with Fox he nodded yes, that he did. "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 to Details. "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." Pressed as to the status of Fox's relationship at the time with her boyfriend and now husband, Brian Austin Green, LaBeouf replies uneasily, "I don't know, man. I don't know. I don't know. I don't know...It was what it was."

Now, there are two ways to look at this. Details is clearly looking for juice with their follow-up question, but LaBeouf could have easily steered the conversation somewhere else, respecting that Fox is now married to Green and being a bit more mature about kissing and telling. But that's clearly not his forte and he has no filter about his past relationships.

"It was sort of disastrous. Neither one of us, I think, were in love. Just sort of experimenting or whatever," LaBeouf says in the same profile about his fling with Adrien Grenier's girlfriend, Isabel Lucas, during the shoot of 'Revenge of the Fallen.' He also describes a dinner with Hilary Duff as "probably the worst date either of us has ever had." We're kind of surprised he hasn't dished on his former relationship with Carey Mulligan yet.

And it's not just girls, but LaBeouf has been very candid when the movies he's been in haven't lived up to his lofty expectations, trashing 'Revenge of the Fallen,' 'Kingdom of the Crystal Skull' and even "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps," telling the magazine that the Oliver Stone film was too soft. "He's trying to play nice. But for a movie like 'Wall Street' that had so much bite the first time around to come out without fangs and preach a message of hope wasn't what people were looking for."

But while the young LaBeouf is probably still finding out how to carry himself in Hollywood, Harrison Ford reveals he tried to set the actor right after his 'Crystal Skull' comments. "I think I told him he was a fucking idiot," Ford says. "As an actor, I think it's my obligation to support the film without making a complete ass of myself. Shia is ambitious, attentive, and talented—and he's learning how to deal with a situation which is very unique and difficult."

And LaBeouf is continuing to take his bring-it-on attitude to his new movies. He apparently got into a dust up with Tom Hardy on the set of "The Wettest County in the World" and John Hillcoat says of the actor, "He will say what he feels, almost too much so. He wears his heart on his sleeve, and it can sometimes blow back. But it's the same thing that also lets him access the truth of his emotions."

That "truth of his emotions" also makes him totally blind to the ramifications his words have. For an actor who is looking to break out of tentpole land, a little humility will go a long, long way but he hasn't found it yet. LaBeouf claims that though movies like "The Bourne Legacy," "Rise of the Planet of the Apes," "127 Hours" and "The Social Network" came his way, they didn't meet the high standard of quality he aspires to. "I'm looking for Warren Beatty—type game changers," says the "Eagle Eye" and "Disturbia" actor.

You can see LaBeouf's Beatty-like performance in the game-changing "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" when it opens tomorrow.

    Yea, so if he's a douche for being honest, then what does that make Megan Fox for hiding it from her then fiance???? Bunch hypocrites on this board.

  • jingmei | June 29, 2011 1:42 AMReply

    sounds like he has been qualified to be a Hollywood badboy, except he's true enough to his heart. he is not deserved of Carey Mulligan for sure.

  • JP | June 29, 2011 1:20 AMReply

    Well, when you have Steven Spielberg as your seemingly permanent love buddy, someone like Shia LaBozo can afford to continue running his mouth and maintain his undeserved A-list spot.

    I will be watching "Wettest County" for everyone in the cast except him. How an acting goddess like Mia Wasikowska got saddled in the role of his love interest, I have no idea. Her role will probably be brief but she'll undoubtedly run circles around him.

    Oh Jagernauth, I love you.

  • samir | June 28, 2011 10:15 AMReply

    I'm also not sure why this article paints what Shia previously said about the Megan Fox firing as throwing her under a bus. He said that Megan Fox didn't want to be just a sex symbol and respected herself too much to go through Michael Bay trying to turn her into some sex symbol. I respect her more for than that and I'm sure she's happy he said that.

  • Sean | June 28, 2011 8:46 AMReply

    Well "w11", wouldn't you also believe Shia to be hot in Hollywood as well?
    What I'm getting at, is that out of all the actors that left, he stayed. He knew he was part of a good film. He stuck by Hillcoat. Sure, the rest of his filmography is just loud, dumb movies, but at least he took a step in the right direction with Wettest Country.

  • w11 | June 28, 2011 8:21 AMReply

    "He can say some stupid things, but this was the only fucking guy that stuck with Hillcoat’s next film. So there’s that."

    And what does that even mean "Sean" ? The reason the other people in the original cast moved on is because they are highly sought after actors who found work elsewhere when the financing fell through. So what point are you trying to make with that inane comment?

  • hmm | June 28, 2011 8:18 AMReply

    "I’ll say it again - he is a fucking idiot! Someone shoot him in the head!"

    That seems a little harsh to me. Unless "Mr. Anonymous" is Brian Austin Greene.

  • Sean | June 28, 2011 7:59 AMReply

    He can say some stupid things, but this was the only fucking guy that stuck with Hillcoat's next film. So there's that.

    Plus he'll always be the kid from Even Stevens to me. Or that cheerleader kid from that one Freaks and Geeks episode.

  • rodie | June 28, 2011 6:53 AMReply

    I don't get what is so douchey about Shia telling the TRUTH. It's not like he and Megan Fox were married, and now he's dishing on his ex-wife. He's under no obligation to protect her "virtue" or lie for her in this situation. They acted in two movies together and had a fling, a physical relationship. He's not putting her down, or throwing her under a bus, he's just stating it as a fact.

    Get mad at the magazine for asking the question, not at Shia for answering honestly. I love the fact that he calls the situation "disastrous," and admits that neither loved each other. People, especially young people who idolize movie stars and think that everything they do, including sleeping around, is so glamorous...People like that need to hear things like this, because in reality these types of physical flings just leave those involved feeling more empty.

  • Mr Anonymous | June 28, 2011 6:47 AMReply

    Harrison Ford got it spot on and i've said it all along - he is a fucking idiot of the nth degree!

    So even though the multi-Oscar nominated 127 Hours and The Social Network came his way, they didn’t meet the high standard of quality he aspires to eh?

    I'll say it again - he is a fucking idiot! Someone shoot him in the head!

  • jonathan | June 28, 2011 6:44 AMReply

    As much of an idiot I think this guy is, I can't deny that he's keeping me entertained by his foolishness. Someday he's gonna become self-aware and it won't be fun anymore.

    Are you shitting me?!

    That's like Bamba trying to take on King Kong.

  • Beezy | June 28, 2011 6:28 AMReply

    This guy is a complete joke.
    I've seen this borderline-midget at a theater in Sherman Oaks, where he was by himself.
    The guy is, maybe, 5'6", 140 lbs soaking wet. The only reason he can take leading man roles is because the camera doesn't show his whole body, and very small costar women can be cast along with him.

  • adrian | June 28, 2011 6:25 AMReply

    Tom Hardy can beat the shit out of this asshole only with his thumb. Good luck in your new job at Starbucks, Shia!

    “I’ve been running for a team of people for a long time and I don’t take any of it back. I’ve learned a great deal about a certain type of filmmaking. But I have ambitions toward another type of filmmaking that I haven’t been allowed to engage in yet.”

    How about silent films?

    Just a thought...

  • hank | June 28, 2011 6:17 AMReply

    to be fair, he admits to being a part of shitty films. later on in the article, in a quote you forgot to include, he says:

    "I've been running for a team of people for a long time and I don't take any of it back. I've learned a great deal about a certain type of filmmaking. But I have ambitions toward another type of filmmaking that I haven't been allowed to engage in yet."
