Shia LaBeouf says his mother is the sexiest woman he knows

In the same interview with Playboy in which Shi LaBeouf reveals that he beat off to the thought of Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu nearby in their trailers on set, he also talks about his “hippie” parents, smoking pot with his family, and his nudist mother. He’s mentioned some of this before, but one particular sound byte is worth it – Shia says that his mother is the sexiest woman he knows and that if he could, he would marry her.

Paging Freud.

“The nudity was weird, especially when her friends came over,” he tells Playboy in their June issue — on sale May 15. “All of them would just be naked around the house. That was strange for me, and it was really bizarre when my friends were there. You’ve got your little buds over, and Mom’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.”

His mother and father were also open about their drug use, which has given him a liberal attitude toward it as well. “I grew up with a bunch of hippies, and marijuana was always around,” he says. “Pot was never looked at as a negative thing. I could smoke it on holidays with my parents, and we were all good. I like pot. It has never been a monster for me. I can put limits on it. But I definitely saw from a very young age what drugs can do to you.”

As for his love life — he was with model Isabel Lucas at the time of his car crash — it sounds like he’s kinda hung up on… his mom.

“Probably the sexiest woman I know is my mother,” he 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.”

You have to keep in mind that Shia is a comedian, so the beating off on set and wanting to marry his mother could be just completely outrageous comments meant to be funny, and taken out of context. It’s sometimes hard to pick up on humor through transcribed interviews. But maybe what Shia needs to take away from this is the fact that he should keep his mouth shut. He has a promising career on his horizon, and he doesn’t want to be known as only a jokester – even if he is one. We all know that even the most innocent of jokes can go horribly wrong when picked up by news outlets, and though this one is pretty harmless, who knows what will come out of his mouth next.

    I’ve always like Shia. He’s seems fun. But I seriously could have done without this creepy interview.

  2. paranel says:

    His mother is the sexiest? Was she the last woman on Earth?

  3. Jen says:

    It’s sweet giving props to his mom and a little less ooky thinking there was some joking behind it.
    Hard to believe a broken pinky can give you so much trouble though. A sling and a cast again? Must really be fighting to not lose his finger.

  4. Alice says:

    How sweet. He must really love his mom.
    Some women will be lucky to get him.

  5. skldfj says:

    EW. EW. EW. EW. EW. i hope to god he was joking, even though i never liked him anyway

  6. viper says:

    Is he trying to kill his career? What kind of pervert says that about his MOM? EW… first he’s an alcoholic before even hitting 23 then he’s a peeping perverted tom before TF now he is professing his thoughts on his mom. YOU PERVERTED SICK FREAK.

    Whats sad is that some people on here think it’s sweet. No it’s not, you don’t say that about your mom. Callinbg her beautiful is one thing but sexiest?

  7. Iggles says:

    I saw this yesterday elsewhere. Safe I no longer have a celebrity crush on him…

  8. viper says:

    Also pot smoking? OKay this guy needs to disappear. It’s people like him that try to make things that are big deals seem like nothing at all.

    Pot was never looked at as a negative thing. I could smoke it on holidays with my parents, and we were all good. I like pot. It has never been a monster for me. I can put limits on it.

    says the DUMBASS in AAA. He’ll limit pot but hey bring on the vodca. HYPOCRITCAL CONTRADICTING MORON.

    I swear he’s like those morons who wanted to legalize madisinal marowana for it’s ‘ useful contributions to medicine ‘ …yeah right that’s exactly why you druggies want it legalized.

  9. bros says:

    take a legally prescribed valium Viper. jesus. who the hell cares about pot anymore? i grew up around it and i never smoke it cause i dont like it. it isnt dangerous and other more advanced countries dont freak out about it and dont jail 4 million people for smoking it and wasting precious resources-they legalize it and tax it and have fully functioning societies with less problems than the US with its puritanical crap and 10% of its population in jails costing the tax payers unknown billions of dollars.

    its alcohol that should be regulated like pot. alcohol does way more societal damage than pot, and kills a ton more people too.

  10. Annie says:

    It’s true Bros.

    Heck, I vote, legalize it!

    I myself, don’t smoke it. But think of the tax possibilities and how mellowed out people would be.

    Think of the many useful properties of HEMP! We could stop destroying forests around the world.

    And I’m sorry Viper, where the _ did you learn how to spell? “madisinal marowana” I could accept not being able to spell MARIJUANA, but you can’t even spell medicinal? Seriously? And you’re making a case against the legalization of a relatively harmless drug? Man, I’m glad they’ve got someone like you on that side of the fence to condemn the atrocity that would be legalizing a plant that could provide paper, clothing, pain relief, etc.

  11. viper says:

    Who the hell cares about Marowana? Okay, so where does it end BRO? We legalize Marowana then Meth? Or cocain? Who the hell cares about such things right? I mean POT is only the tricycle for drug beginners. BUT it can do noooooooo harm. Oh yeah, marowana is not a big deal at all.

  12. Nneikha says:

    it’s cute that he finds his mother the sexiest woman on earth..but he could spare us the prop thing…that spoils everything…:S…but i like him tons..!!he seems fun…

  13. viper says:

    Okay I don’t know how to spell Marijuana LOL.

  14. bros says:

    viper, see above for your spelling lesson. for someone who doesnt know how to spell it, you certainly have a lot of unfounded opinions about it.
    secondly, there is no evidence that marijuana is a ‘gateway’ drug and that it leads to other drug use. only in puritanical american society is that falsity thrown around when there is no statistical evidence to back it up. marijuana is NOTHING at ALL like meth, cocaine, which are processed, highly highly addictive. marijuana isnt. people dont break into cars to get $$ to buy marijuana. they do that to get a meth fix or crack fix. pot is grown from a plant and dried. simple. as annie stated above, hemp makes an unbelievable amount of stuff, has properties that make it stronger and more durable than cotton, and the plant can grow is so many places that other plants cannot, thus being better for the environment by leaps and bounds because it can grow just about anywhere. you need to do a little bit of reading before you get into a venom-filled argument.

  15. viper says:

    Hey Im not going to try and hide my spelling mistakes dude. We all do it, and you thinking my OPINION doesn’t matter simply because I made a few spelling errors, is picking at straws. My point is vaild, if you legalize pot you are not helping things.

    The law enforcers have it hard enough keeping us safe. They also go above and beyond to fight drug trafficing. Now if we legalize one drug where does it end? It’s like the issue of gun ownership: it’s not a question of IF we should own a gun it’s a question of how resposible we are with them.

    The same can be said about drugs, it doesn’t matter what country legalizes it. Our history with resposiblity when it comes to such things is poor. If we cannot even keep guns out of the hands children we shouldn’t even be considering legalizing any sort of drug. The same can be said about alcohol. America used to have dry states for a reason, the moment we let those regulations go people were anything BUT happy. Domestic violence went up, traffic accidents went up more violence in the streets ect. It’s not the ROOT but it is deffinately a factor and one of the many examples of how irresposible we have become.

    Other places in the world legalize alot of things but none of the countries are the sizes of contients. Every state in our country is a country in itself, we are a gigantic nation. So there is alot we have to deal with. Other countries don’t face our problems because they aren’t as diverse or vast. So of course they can handle such things like drug trafficing better than we can and can afford to be leaniant.

    That doesnt make legalizing a drug right even in their case.

  16. bros says:

    my quibble wasnt with your spelling-it was with your opinions on marijuana that are not based in any sort of fact. so then, are you arguing for more regulation on guns, or are you one of those people who wants your second amendment rights to keep all the guns you want because guns dont kill people, people kill people? in that case, you should be all about giving people the personal responsibility to use a plant like marijuana if they want to as long as they dont hurt anyone else. im not even sure if you are advocating for making the US a dry country, but if not, you are contradicting yourself. outlawing alcohol was more trouble than it was worth? duh! so is outlawing marijuana.

    and PS, the size of the US has nothing to do with ability to control and regulate what kinds of substances you deem illegal and those you deem legal. that’s called smart lawmaking and smart regulation and smart enforcement, none of which the US has. do not see at all what diversity has to do with this argument at all.

  17. Anna says:

    I just wanted to point out from that angle, Shia and his mother look exactly like each other. They both have the same face.

  18. Annie says:


    Yes, atrocious spelling aside, I think Bros and I can agree that it’s your very backward views we disagree with.

    Let’s refute a couple things shall we?

    Prohibition was the dumbest thing to ever hit this country.

    Why? Because alcohol use actually went UP and the government had no idea what was going on and no way to regulate something that was “black market”. Speakeasies popped up everywhere and we saw the birth of some of the most notorious smugglers in our history. Al Capone ring a bell?

    To top it all off, bros is correct about alcohol being far more dangerous than marijuana and that marijuana has not been scientifically proven as a gateway drug. (I’ve actually taken several courses on the subject and there is much debate about that issue alone because of the fact that there’s really no way to prove that the pot smoker wasn’t planning to use something harder later and there are a lot of people who use coke/meth/heroin and have never smoked a joint. There is no direct correlation.)

    And your argument for making all potentially dangerous things illegal is because we can’t be trusted? This paternalistic approach to government is where totalitarianism stems from. People can’t be trusted, so let’s take away everything?

    you know, its been said that when a guy gets older he will look for a woman who reminds him of his mother. the same for girls. When i first met my man, he said i was like his mom alot, i thought it was weird but when i met her, it was a compliment (the best one he could give)

  20. kiki says:

    EVEN STEVENS Shia cutest thing ever,
    pot would become legal when the gov can tax the heck out of it

  21. yadira says:

    I think it is a sweet comment that was taken the wrong way by people who don’t know what sarcasm is.

  22. the original kate says:

    his mother is wearing terrifying pants.

  23. ash says:

    Viper, Shia was just talking about growing up around it, why bring so many other things into it? You are blowing this WAY out of the water and giving me a headache.

  24. Codzilla says:

    So wait, Shia’s mom was walking around naked when his friends were visiting? Not to sound like a prude, but I’d be pissed if I sent my kids to a friend’s house, only to discover that Mom and her pals were lounging around in the buff. Couldn’t they have traced their auras behind a closed door while the wee ones were in the vicinity?

  25. Annie says:

    Pissed and nauseous.

  26. Codzilla says:

    That, too. Gag.

  27. ChristinaT says:

    if he were joking i don’t think he’d quanlify it with “as sick as that sounds.” i think he’s actually serious, except he doesn’t realize how disturbing and creepy this sounds… which is why he’s saying it. NOBODY says something that disturbing unless they can’t fathom the extent of the creepiness in what they’re saying… which, in this case, is A LOT!

  28. Maritza says:

    Boy he really busted his hand bad, it has taken him so long to heal. It’s nice to know that he gets along so well with his mother.

  29. RAN says:

    Weird interview, but well written by Samhill!

    I sort of ‘get’ what he’s talking about with the naked mommy crap. My parents didn’t do that nonsense, but it still exists on some level today. Take (for instance) Heidi Klum walking around in ‘just’ a bikini bottom (no top) feeding her kids and hubby on a boat. All the nudist camps and nude beaches too… Nudity isn’t THAT wacked out. Not everyone’s thing, but that doesn’t make what he’s saying overly creepy. The drawing things on people’s naked bodies in front of children is a little off, but… who am I to judge?

  30. barneslr says:

    “The law enforcers have it hard enough keeping us safe”

    You are right. So they should stop wasting their time and our tax dollars chasing down Bob the mailman for wanting to smoke joint in the privacy of his home after a long day of work. Then they would have more time and resources to go after actual criminals.

  31. Aleksa says:

    Um…about legalising drugs, the point about “if the governement legalised marijuana, where would it end”…I´m on morphine, legally prescribed for pain, and a lot stronger than marijuana. I´d much rather be on marijuana because the side effects would be less atrocious and the long-term harm would be less agressive, but morphine is legal and marijuana isn´t, so I´ll have to keep taking morphine…UGH.

  32. DENISE [MICHELLE] says:

    But you know in a fun way i woulod marry my horse okay hun.

  33. Dangela says:

    Shia is just expression how much he loves his mom what’s wrong with that it’s not creepy . It’s wired that a men can’t love his mom that much
