Shia LaBeouf went on a date with Rihanna
Shia LaBeouf really is the new it-guy of Hollywood, after shooting a mediocre flick with Harrison Ford, starring in what will unfortunately be the moneymaker of this summer with the Transformers sequel and even going out on a date with Rihanna. Wait, when did that happen?
The couple met through a stylist while he was filming Kingdom of the Crystal Skull in 2007, he says in an interview with Playboy: "(I was) filming a sword fight when I got the message. I said, 'Can this be my life?' " he says. Obviously it didn't go anywhere, though.
"It never got beyond one date," he says. "The spark wasn't there. We weren't passionate about each other in that way, so we remain friends."
That's strike on for Shia. Want to read strike two? Check this bizarre quote in the same interview: "Probably the sexiest woman I know is my mother," LaBeouf says. "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 my mother now, if she weren't my mother, as sick as that sounds."
And yes, it does sound sick; about as sick as not working harder on a relationship with Rihanna.
