Pretty much from day one of them stepping onto the Transformers set, Shia LaBeouf was rumored to be banging Megan Fox. In 2009, a witness who saw the two together at a party told the New York Daily News:
"They definitely seemed into each other. Shia couldn’t keep his eyes off of Megan: He literally watched her like a hawk all night."
After Megan married Brian Austin Green in 2010, a source told the Chicago Sun Times that Brian was "Plan B":
"She never got over ['Transformers' co-star] Shia LaBeouf. ... Brian has always been her second choice, but he's a good guy and truly is crazy about her. But, I don't think that one-way street kind of relationship will eventually work out, I'm sorry to say."
Popular VideoThis young teenage singer was shocked when Keith Urban invited her on stage at his concert. A few moments later, he made her wildest dreams come true.
So I guess Shia's new interview in Details doesn't really come as much of a shock:
Asked if he hooked up with Fox, LaBeouf nods affirmatively. "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," he explains. "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 I inquire about Fox's status at the time with her longtime boyfriend, Brian Austin Green, LaBeouf replies, "I don't know, man. I don't know. I don't know. I don't know. . . ."—repeating the phrase exactly 12 times with various intonations, as if trying to get it just right. Finally, he says, "It was what it was."
I've got to hand it to Shia -- it took some kind of restraint to keep this quiet for the past two years. If I had sex with Megan Fox, I'd run a full page ad in The New York Times. And that ad would tell everyone to watch my commercial during the Super Bowl where I talk about the time I had sex with Megan Fox.
