Shia LaBeouf gives details on Megan Fox affair

Shia LaBeouf admits that he and co-star Megan Fox had an affair while working on the first two Transformer movies. During an in-depth interview with Details magazine, he was asked if he’d hooked up with Fox, and he nodded, saying: “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. 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 asked if Megan was with her longtime boyfriend (and now husband), Brian Austin Green, at the time, LaBeouf replied, “I don’t know, man. I don’t know. I don’t know. I don’t know. . . .” He repeated the phrase 12 times with various intonations, finally concluding, “It was what it was.” He also claims Harrison Ford privately applauded his outspokenness when Shia openly dissed their movie together, Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull, but when the interviewer went to Ford for coroboration, the veteran actor remembered it differently, saying, “I think I told him he was a f**king idiot.”

    He should start in a movie call the Boy Who Cried Wolf.

    … geeze I kinda liked IJ and the Crystal Skull …

  3. C-Dub • June 29, 2011 @ 7:57 PM

    High five LaBeaouf!! Good on ya. And her marriage to B.A. Green will not last anyway. Way to tap it.
    As for his openess on Crystal Skull the ending sucked, the rest was great and same lines as the other films and I remember articles where they wanted to work again together on anouther Indy movie. But maybe at the time everyone just praises each other and how professional they all are.

    I liked the Indiana Jones movie too…… I think it’s pretty shitty to admit to the public whether it happened or not when she is married now…. wow.

  5. Allison • June 29, 2011 @ 10:54 PM

    Um… yeah why do I not believe that?

  6. Karyn • June 29, 2011 @ 11:46 PM

    Well for sure there was something going on between them, probably while she was with Brian. How is that not surprising to me?? After all it is Hollywood where everyone does everyone else but there own partner!!

  7. Monique • June 30, 2011 @ 12:21 AM

    There was a time when a gentleman didn’t disclose who he had relations with. Shia reminds me of a little teen from school, bagging to his friends about who he slept with. Very classless.

  8. jeff • June 30, 2011 @ 12:39 AM

    oh lA LA Monique you nailed it! I agree big time. Is it just me or has Shia LabBeouf turned into Shia Ladouche these days. Recap

    1. War with Harrison Ford

    2. War with Frankie Muniz

    3. Stole Adrian Grenier’s lady

    4. Now war with Megan Fox

    This sounds like to me a guy whose ego was shattered when rejected by Megan Fox. “Hooked up” really? Was the term “got it on” or “frisky” taken? Grow up dude. IF it’s true I take it all back, but me thinks thou protesteth a tad too much these days Shia.

  9. Ambrose Mugwump • June 30, 2011 @ 1:31 AM

    I don’t know who to feel more sorry for, LaBeouf or Fox.
    Actually i take that back. I feel sorrier for Fox, he got a good looking jerk, she got an ugly jerk.

  10. Jo-Anne • June 30, 2011 @ 5:12 AM

    I dont know, man. I dont know. I dont know. I dont know. . . . It was what it was.

    let me spell it out for you Shia…it was you straining pitifully to be LaS-T-U-D when in fact you are just LaB-A-R-F…

  11. jjones • June 30, 2011 @ 7:42 AM

    I have to agree with Monique and Jeff on this one. Why can’t people keep secrets anymore and what does anyone gain by this knowledge. The only thing I can be glad about is that Megan and Brian weren’t married at the time. I would hate for this to destroy a “marriage” that may (or may note) be working for them. They could have been “on a break” at the time. LOL

  12. Azhrei • June 30, 2011 @ 8:21 AM

    @C-Dub – I agree. Good on you Shia. A vast majority of men would love to tap that.

    I wonder why everyone is displaying so much scorn for Shia. No one was hurt during their tryst, and it’s not like he “ran around the schoolyard shouting ‘I banged Megan and she screamed like a banshee!'” He was asked a question “had he hooked up with Megan”, and no, “hooked up” weren’t Shia’s words. I commend him for this. He was asked a question and he responded with the truth. Yes, he had. No details, no embellishments, just an admission. Was this wrong? I don’t think so. A simple and classy admission of truth trumps a tabloid or the papparazzi story any day. Or perhaps the ones offended here prefer to spy on people to find things out or maybe, just maybe, they’d prefer the sleazy sex-tape to get “leaked” to the internet.

  13. Lenny • June 30, 2011 @ 9:41 AM

    I think Harrison Ford summed him up best when he called him a F%#king Idiot!

  14. AK • June 30, 2011 @ 10:05 AM

    Shia took offence to a guy making fun of him at the bar. To make sure that his entourage new he was the man Shia went over to this guy and threw a punch. The guy sidestepped his punch then countered him, knocking Shia to the ground. What does this have to do with Megan Fox. Pattern of behavior. I bet the Megan Fox thing was also a embarrassing swing and a miss..

  15. Brad • June 30, 2011 @ 1:35 PM

    I hooked up with Megan Fox. lol

  16. Tayderhead • June 30, 2011 @ 3:16 PM

    An affair??? With a married “other”??? In Hollywood??? OMG!!!

  17. Jaques Strape • June 30, 2011 @ 4:44 PM

    The beef scores

  18. NomNom • June 30, 2011 @ 6:37 PM

    I like how honest he is about his own films. It is easier to trust him.

  19. Dreg • June 30, 2011 @ 9:13 PM

    I liked Crystal Skull also.

    but I don’t truly think he “hooked up” with her at all. I think he probably made that up. the only way to be sure is if she says its true

  20. Allison • July 1, 2011 @ 2:33 AM

    Yeah I used to think he was boyish cute when he first came out but the more he opens his mouth he seems more and more full of himself, and honestly I think he just said that about megan fox because he wants to be in the limelight and just wants to be talked about. I think there are some actors out there with a lot more class.

  21. S • July 1, 2011 @ 9:09 AM

    There probably was chemistry between them. Despite her being in a relationship, she’s still human, and Shia is not a bad looking boy. However, regardless of whether or not something happened, it’s very immature, crass, and just generally ungentlemanly of him to approach it the way he did. When asked about any relationship, all should have said was “We’re friends, we have screen chemistry.” Evasive yet satisfactory. People would have drawn their own conclusions anyways with a question like that.

  22. Spanky • July 1, 2011 @ 9:45 AM

    I hope BG kicks his ass!

  23. UBDave • July 1, 2011 @ 12:15 PM

    In an interview on Regis & Kelly yesterday, when asked about another Indy movie he said he knows that Harrison has been working out and the director and rest of the crew are ready to go, so he’s in for it. Regis compared Shia to the next Harrison Ford in his rise to stardom.

  24. Elijah Pierson • July 1, 2011 @ 6:44 PM

    Indy 4 didn’t suck!!! okay, the alien part of the ending was strange, but the marriage was good, and so was the rest of the film

  25. fsoiafjaoi • July 2, 2011 @ 5:19 PM

    LOOOOOL wait till she or Brian reads this, ahahhaha. LMAO @ the Harrison Ford quote.

  26. Uduki • July 3, 2011 @ 2:05 PM

    Did anybody else hear we found alien sentient machines on the moon 42 years ago? Blew my friggin mind.

  27. Mike Ram • July 3, 2011 @ 10:51 PM

    Fox is openly bi. So is Angelina. The reason guys who have everything marry stunning women like that is because the girls bring THEIR girlfiends to bed so their husbands can sleep with them as well. Its probably why their marriages last while monogamous hollywood ones eventually fail. Sorry, just the facts.

  28. Mike Ram • July 3, 2011 @ 10:57 PM

    Also as for Shia dissing CRYSTAL SKULL… They were hinting that you would be taking over the franchise when Indy’s hat was blowing out the church door and Indy caught it before Shia saying “NOT YET KID”
    Maybe ASHTON KUTCHER is available for the role since Shia screwed up a dream job. Save your money kid. You will need it burning bridges like that when nobody wants to work with you.

    Here at HuffPost Style we racked our brains to try and figure out the best gifts for our bffs, and we have to admit, it was a challenge. But the best thing about getting gifts for your amigos (unlike your grandmother) is you can pick something that you too would like to receive. After asking all the fashion editors what they were hoping to get for Christmas, and what they are planning on buying their friends, we compiled a list of great gift ideas.

    Exactly what severe application function searching to complete over a pill that you still cannot perform at this time? You should remember whenever Dorrie Job opportunities unveiled the actual ipad tablet, it absolutely was presented for a 3 rd podium alternative (along having desktop pcs and also laptops). Wanting a capsule to perform SolidWorks layout function is absolutely not just what its meant for. In that exact same problematic vein, whatever you could consider for being non-serious job might be opposing great person (think salespeople). It’s all about flow of work and also obtaining what works effectively for you.

    Nach Pressey geben Mentoren eine Mentee eine Chance, in einem sicheren Umfeld auszuprobieren Ideen. Mentoren sollten ihre Mentees zu anderen in Kreisen, die sie normalerweise nicht, vorstellen, was hilfreich, in denen Karriere voranzutreiben ist. Eine relativ kleine Verbesserung in der Netzwerkf盲higkeit kann einen gro脽en Einfluss.
