Apparently, nobody ever told “Transformers” star Shia LaBeouf (whose name I continue to never know how to spell) that it was ungentlemanly to kiss and tell, because dude straight up told the world that he hooked up with costar Megan Fox while they were filming the movie. In a new interview with Details, LaBeouf says it’s understandable because, “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 goes on to say that “the time I spent with Megan was our own thing, and I think you can see the chemistry onscreen.” Yes, all that chemistry in the MIchael Bay explosion-a-thon “Transformers.”
And then there’s this, from the Details interview…
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.”
It was what it was? First of all, LaBeouf, use lose a zillion points for using that phrase. Secondly, it’s tacky — tickity tackity tacky — to talk about your alleged tryst with a maybe-attached-at-the-time co-star. No one likes a tattletale. Or a guy who simply thinks it’s cool to brag about his conquests under the guise of faux humility. Next time, La-whatever, just keep it classy and keep your mouth shut. [Hit Dan Back]
