My disdain, nay, my utter revulsion for James Franco is well documented on this site. But it seems that there is a dark horse waiting in the wings, ready to pry the douche-prize right out of Franco’s well-oiled hands. Yes, Shia LaBeouf, who today, it was revealed, quit a play in which he was to costar with Alec Baldwin. Not only did LaBeouf unceremoniously quit due to “creative differences” with the director (which is a nice way of saying he was difficult), but LaBeouf then proceeded to tweet out apologies to Baldwin for leaving the production. Sweet, right? Except the apology was lifted directly from a 2009 Esquire article entitled “How To Be A Man.”
“A man can tell you he was wrong. That he did wrong. That he planned to. He can tell you when he is lost. He can apologize, even if sometimes it’s just to put an end to the bickering.” wrote LaBeouf, I mean Esquire’s Tom Chiarella.
So let’s take a look and compare LaBeouf’s encroaching doucheiness to Franco’s well-established d-bag card.
I feel very strongly about Crocs. As in, they are the only kind of footwear I cannot tolerate. I hate them even more than I hate those toesies running shoes. And I really hate those. I will excuse Tevas or flip flops or aqua socks or platform thongs, or those Fit sneakers, or even those horrid, pointy toed men’s dress shoes, but Crocs should be illegal. Here’s my thought: you can wear comfy, waterproof footwear without your feet looking ridiculous, right?
I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised that Shia LaBeouf wears them on the regs. Oh, Shia. Don’t make things worse for yourself. Click onward to see more celebs committing acts of Crocery. [Photo: Flame/Flynet]
I’m not going to try to conceal it: Shia LaBeouf creeps the shit out of me. For starters, his name reminds me of an un-choice cut of beef, hence this picture of him in a cow costume. I couldn’t help myself. I realize this is not a legit reason to dislike a person I’ve never met. So let me dig deeper. I am irked by things he says — the way he overshares about his exes, his mother, his colleagues, his life in general. The man is bizarre. For instance, just this week he was talking about his plans for the future … Keep reading »
The hipster formula is as follows: If exclusivity is cool and hideous fashion is undesirable, then adopting hideous fashions because they are undesirable makes one exclusive. And this exclusivity, in turn, makes one cool. Now apply this philosophy to everything you own and… voila! You are a hipster! You will now be in the market for a Polaroid camera and declare that you were listening to bands no one’s heard of before it was cool to listen to bands no one’s heard of.
For those too square to know, hipsters are currently stuck on a nostalgic obsession with both the 1980s and 1880s, adopting the silliest and most anachronistic fashion choices of both simultaneously. The result is a horrifying mix of big glasses, curly mustaches, tight T-shirts and brimmed hats. We couldn’t help but notice that Shia LaBeouf’s Prohibition-era style in the new gangster film ”Lawless” looks oddly… contemporary. So we’ve compiled a look back at movie characters who didn’t realize they were being hip before anyone else was. Read more…
Last night, domestic abuser and homophobe Chris Brown got in a brawl with someone who was possibly in Drake’s entourage, supposedly over Rihanna, and he lost a bloody piece of his chin in the melee.
This morning, The New York Post reported xoJane writer Cat Marnell is leaving the blog to smoke angel dust and “write a book.” Like, she actually said that to a reporter. This is the new plan because she doesn’t want to stop using drugs, as she has been asked to do by her employer.
Then, this South African couple told the Daily Mail about how they keep an adult pet Bengal tiger inside their home as a pet and he sometimes chews up their sofas. This couple also owns several tasty-looking pet dogs.
Typically, I have boundless reserves of empathy, if not outright sympathy, for others. But it is time for some real talk: None of these people are deserving of our sympathy. I mean, it sucks when bad things happen to people, like when your Bengal tiger eats your couch. It would suck if more bad things happened to these people, like if your pet Bengal tiger eats your dogs. But do we feel bad for these individuals for the hard knocks coming their way? No. No, we do not.
After the jump, more people we do not feel bad for at all. Not one little bit. “Unbad,” you might even say: Keep reading »
I’m not sure what hair look Shia LaBeouf was going for at the “Lawless” premiere at Cannes this past weekend. It looks like he had one of those Brazilian treatments gone terribly wrong. It looks relaxed for certain. And crispy with gel. Also, is it too mean of me to point out that there is food in his teeth. Blergh. We can only hope that there is a film to blame for this hairstyle. He could not have done this on his own volition, could he? Having bad hair for a film would put Shia in pretty great company.

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… Keep reading »
