Shia LaBeouf wants to marry his mother

Shia Labeouf with his mother, ShaynaShia LaBeouf, who stars in the upcoming Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen, told the June issue of Playboy that if he could marry his hippie mother, Shayna, he would. “Probably the sexiest woman I know is my mother. She’s an ethereal angel. Nobody looks like that woman. If I could meet my mother and marry her, I would. I would be with her now, if she weren’t my mother, as sick as that sounds,” he said. LaBeouf reveals when he was a kid, his mother and her friends would walk around the house naked.  “That was strange for me, and it was really bizarre when my friends were there,” he admits. “You’ve got your little buds over, and mum’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.” ~movi_alex

    HILARIOUS…and SICK!! Sexy? He thinks she’s sexy? Look at her! Doesn’t take much to turn him on, LMFAO! As for all her walking around the kids naked and stuff, she needs to get some help.

    He’s obviously attracted to someone who is ‘spiritual’ as this is what he grew up with. Freedom of self. I don’t get that he would literally marry his mother. He’s only speaking metaphorically. Chill people.

  3. Luis Willis • May 8, 2009 @ 10:35 AM

    Well Sarah, he clearly states ; ” If I could meet my mother I would marry her” no metaphors here..

  4. Scuzz • May 8, 2009 @ 10:56 AM

    Of course there is a Metaphor!
    If I could meet my mother I would marry her
    I am pretty sure he has already met his mother so… by any means of logic he is trying to say someone as spiritual as her.

    Come on guys lets not turn Shia into the next Micheal Jackson or something.

  5. Tara • May 8, 2009 @ 11:03 AM

    This could be taken in so many ways. What i think he was trying to say is he wants to meet a woman that has the same personality and spirituality as his mother. Who would marry their mother like seriously.. learn how to read between the lines.

  6. Jen • May 8, 2009 @ 11:40 AM

    Most mothers, would give anything to have such a great bond with her adult child.

    He appears altogether “considering” his upbringing…

    Happy mother’s Day Shayna

  7. Gewher • May 8, 2009 @ 2:10 PM

    I’m sure his friends loved coming over…

    Actually, from looking at her… I’m sure they didn’t.

  8. tributegirl • May 8, 2009 @ 2:16 PM

    Tara, I agree with your comment, he probably means he would like to marry someone like his mother, but still, he said it in a VERY strange way. I bet his comments are going to be totally disected!
    Nancy, what do you think of this quote: “Nobody looks like that woman.” 🙂

  9. Nancy • May 8, 2009 @ 2:26 PM

    Makes me think he’s f-ing sick! LMAO!

  10. tarin • May 8, 2009 @ 2:29 PM

    The mother is screwed up in the head and seriously needs help. She has no boundaries. She didn’t teach her son boundaries and walking around naked in front of him and his poor little friends,–what a freak! Would you want a mother like that? She seems more like a monster to me. She’s not beautiful, inside or out. She needs a psychiatrist!

    tarin on May 8, 2009 2:29 PM

    Second that. If my kids went to their friends house and the mother was naked playing “connect the dots or whatever” I would have called the police or reported it to the school at the very least. Look at them in the picture…she looks like shes not there mentally and he’s dragging her along. Poor guy, he was no doubt the laughing stock of his peers while growing up and now he’s stuck taking care of the nutcase.

    If she was so spiritual she would have been in tune to her kids needs and put some damn clothes on before his friends came over. And for those that think this is normal behaviour for someone that “spiritual”, your all as crazy as she is!

  12. sk8tergirl • May 8, 2009 @ 3:44 PM

    That’s… disturbing O_o

  13. demigod • May 8, 2009 @ 3:45 PM

    I think what Shia is trying to convey is he’s attracted to an uninhibited woman who has no hangups being naked and is open sexually. She’s not self-concious of her appearance. It’s her attitude he loves, more than her ‘spirituality’.

  14. Anon • May 8, 2009 @ 4:14 PM

    demigod on May 8, 2009 3:45 PM

    Hey I’m all for spending the day naked while hanging around the house…but not when my son’s friends are there. Having no inhibitions is healthy, but so is having a son that isn’t pleasuring himself while thinking of you. Just wrong.

  15. demigod • May 8, 2009 @ 6:02 PM

    Anon on May 8, 2009 4:14 PM

    No, nudity in front of some guests can be inappropriate, but parents can be worse.

  16. demigod • May 8, 2009 @ 6:08 PM

    Anon, what’s wrong is having the old man do the same lol

  17. demigod • May 8, 2009 @ 6:09 PM

    Parading around naked that is lol

  18. Carol • May 8, 2009 @ 6:21 PM

    It’s disgusting…he certainly could’ve worded it better, makes them sound like a perverted, wannabe incestuous family. There are boundaries…you don’t parade naked around your house with company, let alone your kid’s friends. There is a boy who goes to high school with my daughter and his friends think his mother is hot. He’s mortified by that…can’t imagine him bringing them home and having her there naked.

  19. Margaret • May 8, 2009 @ 6:21 PM

    “Who would marry their mother like seriously?”…What sort of a sentence IS THAT??? Anyway I`m not sure what some of the commentators call “spiritual” If she wants to run around in her own home in the buff then so be it but not when a group of kids are around(male OR female)

  20. Teresa • May 8, 2009 @ 6:28 PM

    Chill people!! Anyone who has that kind of relationship with his mom at his age is precious.He obvisiously loves his Mother and isn;t afraid to say so. And for her walking around naked …well back in the day people were more open and not taught to be ashamed of themselves also she is beautiful and prob more so back when he was younger.
    Don’t knock him , he’s a son any Mother would be proud of.

  21. tributegirl • May 8, 2009 @ 8:26 PM

    “back in the day people were more open and not taught to be ashamed of themselves”, yeah, but for parading around in front of her young son and his friends, she SHOULD have been ashamed of herself! If my childrens friends mother did that, my children wouldn’t be going to their house!

    Anon, whats wrong is having the old man do the same lol

    lol Hey, I’m down for it! But most men already do! My son is already half way there…..I have to give him shLt when he walks around in a towel or his boxers while my daughter’s friends are over. I’m sure once he’s on his own, he’ll spend most of his days in the buff. To be honest, I miss the freedom of doing the same 🙂 The best I get these days are mad dashes around the house in bra and panties.

  23. Anon • May 8, 2009 @ 9:27 PM

    tributegirl on May 8, 2009 8:26 PM

    Agree with you. Nothing better than spending the day in the buff….at the appropriate times. Seems so sick to be sitting around with all your friends, stroking each others bodies, ooops I mean playing connect the dots in front of your kid and their friends. Besides, whats he going to say? At the kid is smart enough to let the skeletons out of the closet himself before the media found out and ran with it.

    Teresa on May 8, 2009 6:28 PM
    “also she is beautiful and prob more so back when he was younger”

    haha All the more reason to cover up in front of your son. Did you or will you extend the peep show to your boys?

  24. Tara Canada • May 8, 2009 @ 11:21 PM

    I agree with my fellow Tara.

    I believe he meant that he’s attracted to a woman who can be open. Someone who is comfortable with who she is.

    My only dislike about the whole situation is the walking around naked around his friends. Now if she was ok with HER son seeing HER friends nude…so be it, BUT the parents of his friends didn’t get a choice as to wheither their kids get to view stuff.

    I am so pleased though that Shia is so close with his Mother. I hope my son and I can be close (even though I have stopped walking around nude since he has started to ask questions as to why I am different from him and Daddy LOL)

    HAPPY MOMMIES’ DAY TO ALL YOU MOTHERS OUT THERE!!!!

  25. mandee • May 8, 2009 @ 11:49 PM

    happy mothers day ladies !! and i agree that walking around naked in front of children is sick. even if they are the same gender as you. i cant help but wonder if perhaps there is anything from his childhood he is conveniently leaving out? clearly if she was ok with her and her adult women friends being naked in front of a bunch of little boys she has some issues…so doesnt anyone wonder if maybe she DID something to him to make him decide he would marry her? i know it is sick to say or think, but its possible.

  26. Minerva • May 9, 2009 @ 1:37 AM

    I agree that this is a sick puppy. And I don’t believe anyone has been jumping to conclusions or “reading in” to anything he said. Point blank……..what the “H” is it about his mother that he cannot enjoy as her son??? What’s with the marriage roll in this guy’s fantasies? As a son, nobody has to be married to their mother to enjoy a close relationship with her, to love her, admire her, appreciate her, be her biggest fan. I don’t know how marriage even got into this perv’s vocabulary when speaking of his mother. And what’s more….if my mother ever ran around naked in the house when I was having friends over I’d be humiliated and never bring friends home again. And what’s with her friends doing the streaker thing as well? Like attracts like……they’re all sicko’s. Barf!!!

  27. Anon • May 9, 2009 @ 8:19 AM

    mandee on May 8, 2009 11:49 PM

    He doesn’t want to marry her mandee, he wants to marry someone LIKE HER ie personality, values, morals and good looks lol He is just bringing this issue out in the open before someone else does and it gets splashed across the headlines. Could you imagine the hay day the media would have with this little tidbit?

  28. mandee • May 9, 2009 @ 12:36 PM

    yes i know that could be what he meant anon. but what if he didnt mean it that way? what if he meant it exactly as he said? i guess we wont really ever know for sure, unless he really DOES marry his mother lol. maybe he said it in hopes of people assuming he meant someone LIKE HER, but maybe the real reason he said it is because he meant he wants to actually marry his MOTHER?

  29. maariah • May 9, 2009 @ 5:17 PM

    okayy as much as i LOVEE shia labeouff..
    OMFGH..
    wthhh…okay he prolly wants to say that he wants to marry someone “like” his motherr..
    not exactly her…:S…
    but omgshhhhhh…
    look at herr =[ why not someone hotter..
    like Magen Fox..

  30. mandee • May 9, 2009 @ 9:22 PM

    well, megan fox is rude. she probably thinks shes too good for him. 😛

  31. Jo-Anne • May 10, 2009 @ 10:06 AM

    the very fact that Shia felt the NEED to divulge this now speaks volumes…

    obviously he’s well aware of the media attention he’ll garnish with this juicy little tidbit…

    “Hey, Shia what’s new?”

    “Oh, not much, making a new movie, hand is healing well….say, did I ever mention me and the wee lads played scrabble with my Naked Mommy…no biggie, just wondering if all you media peeps had a spare page this week…”

    please

  32. Anon • May 10, 2009 @ 1:44 PM

    Jo-Anne on May 10, 2009 10:06 AM

    hmm Interesting perspective. I thought maybe he dropped the bomb before someone else did which would have dragged the two of them through the gutter…but I think you may be right. Definitely will get him a few headlines.

  33. june • May 10, 2009 @ 1:55 PM

    it’s natural for boys to be attracted to people LIKE their moms… especially if they have a strong relationship with them.
    i really doubt that Shia wants to marry his mom, and probably just meant someone LIKE his mom.

    as for the other part… i think she should’ve put some more clothes on when his friends were over…

  34. lily • May 10, 2009 @ 7:42 PM

    Oh Tribute screeners, is the message from ^w^ really necessary? He just sounds like a pig.
    As for the intelligent discussion going on between other people here, I want to add my opinion that Shia is not a moron so he MUST have known how scandelous he’d sound and this is a cheap ploy for headlines. Also, if his mom really did parade around nude in front of his little freinds, I think she’s disgusting.

  35. ke • May 11, 2009 @ 1:26 AM

    modern day oedipus?

    ‘i’d be with her now if she weren;t my mother’. does he mean like an ashton/demi thing? him at his age with her at her age? okaaay…whatever floats his boat.

  36. MJ • May 15, 2009 @ 2:28 AM

    I find it very interesting the outrage people are voicing over his mom ‘parading around nude’. You people really need to learn to read – not read between the lines. It says his mom walked around naked and had goddess group. NO WHERE IN THIS does it say they flaunted, or paraded – that’s just the worst most of you want to assume. If you know anything about the time period & views, he’s talking about a nude naturalist group that probably had their ‘group’ in a separate room from the children, but if they needed a drink, just walked to the kitchen (nude) to get one. While I don’t do anything like that, what disturbs me more is how quickly you people turned it into something sick, twisted and incestuous. Since you DIDN’T have a mom raise you like he did, WHAT’S YOUR EXCUSE?!?!

  37. Anon • May 15, 2009 @ 3:50 PM

    MJ on May 15, 2009 2:28 AM

    We’re reading between the lines? I think you are just putting your own little spin on things here….

    “NO WHERE IN THIS does it say they flaunted, or paraded” I believe he said while his friends were over they “played connect the dots or whatever”. Your words, I BELIEVE is exactly right yet you go on to chastise everyone else belief of what went on in that house.

    You also go on to say that they ” probably had their group in a separate room from the children” which is another one of your little spins on the situation. PROBABLY, again, YOUR BELIEF.

    So while the rest of us read exactly what was printed in black and white on this page, it is you that is trying to read whatever it is you think you see between the lines. YOU need to learn to read what is written in black and white and forget the analysis. By the way, your little comment about knowing the time period and viewsha. You trying to educate us on that as well? Haha. Thanks but I think Ill pass on your little tutorial after reading your pathetic sermon on what exactly he meant by his words lol

  38. Nancy • May 15, 2009 @ 5:57 PM

    Yeah! So stick that in your pipe and smoke it, MJ! 😀

  39. tributegirl • May 15, 2009 @ 6:33 PM

    MJ, you’re doing a lot of assuming yourself. Here’s an interesting quote from the article above:

    his mother and her friends would walk around the house naked. That was strange for me, and it was really bizarre when my friends were there, he admits.
