If we know anything about Shia LaBeouf by now it’s that the actor doesn’t bite his tongue, least of all about former co-star Megan Fox.
The 25-year-old star has explained that it may have been Fox’s “Spice Girl strength” that led to her bouncing from the “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” set, and also chimed in when Michael Bay claimed that it was Spielberg who fired Fox after she made those Hitler comparisons. (“She started s- talking our captain. Which you can’t do,” he told GQ.)
And now, in an interview with Details for its August issue, LaBeouf alludes that he and Fox were closer than some may have thought. According the magazine, when LaBeouf was asked if he “hooked up” with 25-year-old Fox, who is married to Brian Austin Green, the “Transformers” actor nodded in the affirmative.
LaBeouf went on to explain, “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 says.
“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," LaBeouf adds.
As for what was going on between Fox and Green, LaBeouf says he doesn’t know – 12 times to be exact, according to Details. “It was what it was,” he adds.
But Fox isn’t the only woman LaBeouf has loose lips about. He also pipes up about his ex Carey Mulligan, a relationship that ended last October.
“I still love her,” he tells Details. “I think she’s a f-–g awesome person and an incredible actress. We’re still pals. I wouldn’t take any of it back, and I don’t think she would either. It just ran its course.”
One starlet he doesn’t have as warm feelings for appears to be Hilary Duff. “Probably the worst date either of us have ever had,” he says of their one time meet-up.
Read the rest of LaBeouf’s interview in Details when the issue hits newsstands July 12. "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" opens Wednesday.
