New couple? Shia LaBeouf’s persistence is winning over Megan Fox

Shia LaBeouf
What’s the conventional wisdom on Shia LaBeouf these days? My thoughts are: very cute, very screwed up, but I really want to take care of him. Soothe him. Cook for him and let him tell me his stories. But Megan Fox has ruined it for me. Both Star and the National Enquirer are running stories this week about Megan and Shia’s undercover romance. She’s an unworthy bitch, right? Hrmph. He would be better off with me, but apparently, Megan and Shia have been into each other for a while – since the filing for the first Transformers movie.

For the Enquirer, the story revolves around Shia’s injuries from his car crash last year. His hand was damaged, but at least he wasn’t charged with that DUI. The accident seemed a wake-up call for Megan, who has started taking care of Shia, realizing how her feeling for him have grown. She even drove Shia to a recent doctor’s appointment. Of course, there’s the little matter of Megan’s on-again-off-again boyfriend/fiancee Brian Austin Green (David Silver!):

Friendship is blooming into love for Megan Fox and Shia LaBeouf!

The 23-year-old actor has carried a torch for the brunette bombshell since they both began filming the first “Transformers” film in 2006, sources say.

So when Megan, 23, called off her engagement to [Brian Austin Green] this winter, Shia stepped in to help her through the breakup, according to insiders.

Now Megan is nursing the young “Indiana Jones” star through physical rehab for his left hand, which required extensive surgery after Shia flipped his truck in a horrific July 2008 car accident.

On May 27, Megan drove 45 minutes across town from her Santa Monica condo to chauffeur Shia to a doctor’s appointment. On the way, the pair stopped for coffee.

The two have grown especially close while promoting the sequel “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen,” added an insider.

But Megan – who recently told an interviewer that “boys in their 20s are a waste of time” – still sees her ex-fiance.

“Megan is torn between Brian and Shia right now,” maintained the insider.

“She loves Brian’s maturity and the life they’ve built together. But she and Shia have gotten much closer in recent weeks. His patience and persistence are winning her over. There’s definitely serious chemistry there.”

[From The National Enquirer, print edition, June 16 2009]

Star has more about the alleged would-be hook-up, and their quotes from Megan are older. But they also have a source who describes Brian (David Silver!) as “a stick-in-the-mud” compared to all of the fun, crazy, 20-something fun Shia and Megan are having. Right? Because David Silver is like 40 years old (he’ll be 36 next month, actually):

“Shia’s had a crush on Megan since the first Transformers movie,” a source tells Star. “They’ve flirted in the past, but Shia wanted to make sure that Megan was totally over Brian Austin Green before he put his heart on the line with her. He wants this to be the real thing!”

Megan confessed to adoring Shia as well. “He’s probably my favorite person in the entire world,” she said. “Shia makes me laugh harder than anybody I’ve ever known in my life. And he’s really super handsome.”

“Brian can be such a stick-in-the-mud; he takes life so seriously and can be difficult to be around. Shia gets Megan to be more relaxed and carefree,” says another source.

“As their filming days on the sequel decreased, she made excuses to see Shia. They recently spent a few days together in Burbank and Venice Beach, just talking. They’re getting closer every day!”

[From Star Magazine, print edition, June 15 2009]

Ah, a lovely romance playing out against the beauty of… Burbank? Okay, sure. If Shia and Megan get together for real, I will totally be disappointed in Shia. He’s an interesting kid, and he could do better. For Megan, though, Shia would totally be a step up. Even if he has personal problems, he’s still one of the most in-demand young actors working today. Just this week two huge projects were just announced, with Shia’s attachment already there: first, Shia signed on the lead in The Associate, with John Grisham’s blessing. Second, Shia has just signed on for a supporting part in the sequel to Wall Street, playing opposite Michael Douglas.

    I can’t see the appeal in him at all.

  2. Lori says:

    She is trash Shia!

    But you can tell by the way he is holding her in these two pictures that there could be truth to this story.

    She looks totally bloated! LOL

  3. SolitaryAngel says:

    His persistence “won her over”? Probably more like “wore her down”! LOL

    @ Kaiser: love your writing, as always!!

  4. nony says:

    Take me back to Even Stevens Shia, this is just no good.

  5. anna says:

    Is it just me – and I’m no Megan Fox fan — but is that the most genuine smile I’ve seen on her face in that first pic? Seriously, she looks downright… happy.

    Maybe there’s something to this…

    Her dress is too short. She still remains on juuust this side of trashy, though.

  6. Iggles says:

    Ugh. She is no Angelina Jolie. This girl slabs on globs of make up and can’t act her way out of a paper bag.

    Even if this is true, it definitely won’t last. Shia is too young to think about settling down.

  7. Maritza says:

    They look perfect together, besides they are the same age. I like them both.

  8. seriously wtf says:

    Honestly, I just dont think he is her type. I think she likes a guy who will treat her like crap. Kinda like how Brian Austin Green does. I think Shia is too nice for her. She needs a really wanna be tough guy. Even tho she usually doesnt make any sense when she is talking. You cant deny that her face is truly beautiful!!

  9. He broke his hand last year & she’s helping him NOW? This story is as dumb as she is (to Star, not you, Kaiser). That said, this skank needs to step away from the Shia.

  10. j. ferber says:

    Seriouslywtf, have you heard any gossip about how Brian treats Megan? Must be something to it, since they’re constantly breaking up.

  11. maggie says:

    Is it just me or does shia have sideshow bob’s feet?

  12. aleach says:

    aw i really like him (and her, for some reason.) so theyre a cute couple.
    i think i should be a hollywood matchmaker…

  13. Jen says:

    The are both gigantic tools.

  14. HashBrowns says:

    LOL @Maggie: He kinda does. I heard tell he just has big feet, even though he isn’t that tall.

    I think he’s a cutie and he’s my age and I’ve been in love with him since he was on Even Stevens.

    Get away from him you, harlot! :P

    I dunno, he seems kinda douchey in a way.

  15. sowow says:

    OK i have a totally different theory about megan fox. I googled “brian austin green”- he has a gay face. a TOTAL gay face. I dont say that in insult to gay people at all of course- im just saying that I can see that this guy is. Most people can identify if a man is homosexual just from a photo because of the muscle tension in the face. So i have a feeling shes his cover, and hes her cover because shes a sex addict who cant stay in a monogamous relationship. LOL well who knows with this chick

  16. Daniel says:

    screw her then dump her dude! then hook up with jen a!

  17. viper says:

    UNless he isn’t a practicing Jew I doubt they are a couple.

  18. Linda says:

    Honestly? I don’t see them together. To tell the truth, I think he could do much better. But that’s just me.

  19. britt says:

    They look like they have great chemistry. She should of hooked up with Shia a long time ago instead of wasting nearly 4 years with doucheBAG.

  20. cc says:

    Gosh, why is everyone bag on B.A.G ? lol.? I think that man is totally fine. He probably made a fortune off 90210 and still getting the residuals. Shia is very hot too. She’d look good with either one of them. Lucky girl.

  21. Freddy Fritz says:

    she is a hooker with no talent. she got her roles by it too. labuffhead is just another doucebag too. hope they both disappear on a hiking trail.

  22. Zebra Spots says:

    bOY who thinks he is an actor hires a prostitute to take pics with! news at 5:00!

  23. Fruitloops says:

    FAGBOY pretends he is with SLUTBAG.

  24. Leah says:

    I thought she said she doesn’t LIKE twenty-something boys??

    Oh well… it’s not like anything she says is to be taken seriously.

    Please don’t, Shia… nooooo…

  25. Zarah says:

    I can believe this. There’s definite chemistry between them. Why not get together until the passion burns out? I like Shia and Megan’s ok when she’s not doing the -auditioning-for-all-the-hooker-parts-in-Hollywood pose thing. And I like B.A.G too! I thought he was hot as Derek Reese in the Sarah Connor Chronicles.

  26. Toe says:

    He’s not that apealing, but reading a story how he is in the sack totally converted me to one of his fans.
    here is the link http://www.backstagepazz.com/2009/05/shia-lebouf.html

  27. Rallah says:

    Megan looks like she is about three months along…

  28. Caitlan says:

    To sowow,
    WTF, I sort of see what you mean about the gay face, but he doesn’t look that way all the time. He has a son with actress, Vanessa Marcil named Cassius. So, I seriously doubt he’s gay. I think he’s hot.

    Megan Fox must really dig Jewish guys. If it’s true about her and Shia. Both Brian Austin Green and Shia are. I like her taste in men.

  29. anti-pathy says:

    And of course this so called romance has absolutely nothing to do with an upcoming movie (sigh)

  30. Caitlan says:

    yeah it’s probably just hype for the movie. But, as I was saying, I dig her taste in men, but that’s it. She should just shut her mouth up when it comes to anything else. . That bit she said about being “too beautiful for work,” is stupid and hypocritical. Especially when she has had a minor nose job and gets monthly collagen injections in her lips. But, at least she doesn’t annoy me half as much as Jessica Biel does, who said the same thing about herself and whom in my opinion, isn’t much better than average looking.

  31. Chris Kryer says:

    bRIAN AUSTIN is GAY even though he porked and had a kid by Vanessa slutbag Marcel. Megan marshmallow is just a skanky ho and she knows this dude will get her further, labouff knows some inside peeps even though he is a mental midget and doucebag.

  32. Lizzie says:

    I agree anti-pathy.

    Great PR for both party, very convenient.

  33. JessicaR says:

    Megan Fox is beautiful, she knows it & so does Shia. I love her physique, very muscular & curvy, the way a real Woman should look NOT scary skeletal skinny like all the other Hollywood femmes. But really I cannot stand Shia. He’s such a boy, not yet a Man! It’s a great PR stunt to promote their movie. After this you won’t see them together again!

  34. Best of British says:

    I agree the boy’s cute but his front view is 10 times better than the side view… please dont show the side view again eww :p

  35. Best of British says:

    She’s a hot hot hottie and I would love to look like her. Her dress is too short and too tight tho, she’s so good looking she doesnt need to wear shit like that.

  36. Christina X says:

    Nah, I think Megan Fox is still with Brian Austin Green. It amazes me how so much a trashy attention whore doesn’t eat up the higher profile celebrities, but whatever. I kind of want to believe Louis Stevens is still likeable.

    JessicaR: you have no idea how bad I resent your statement about how all real women should have curves…I’m not naturally curvy, so I guess I’m not a real woman, am I?

    Believe it or not, thin can still be beautiful and natural.

    And FFS Megan Fox isn’t that great looking. The more I look at her, the weirder looking she gets, and it’s not a bitterness issue, because I have no problem admitting if a girl is physically beautiful despite her annoying personality. ANYONE can look like Megan Fox.

  37. QT says:

    They look good together, glad they’re friends.

    Most of you toolbags sound like the trashy idiots, not Fox & Shia.

    Chistina X you actually sound VERY bitter. If anyone can look like Megan then why doesn’t every chick look like her then?? She has her own distinct look & good genes. They are both is hot.

    Transformers is starting out as the biggest movie in history. It doesn’t need any help in the PR department. Especially these 2 dating. They’re friends & have been since the first movie. You lame haters make me laugh.

    “Ugh. She is no Angelina Jolie. This girl slabs on globs of make up and can’t act her way out of a paper bag.” Actually that’s sounds just like SAINTgelina.

  38. ActaNonVerba says:

    Shia Lebouf is a “made man”. He is a Jewish kid in Jewish Hollywood who, despite his geeky looks and poor acting, is still being groomed for stardom by his older Jewish benefactors such as Steven Spielberg. The whole Megan Fox thing is creepy. I think she definitely feels pressure to stay in the good graces of the “chosen one” Jewboy if she wants to keep her Hollywood money rolling in.
