While you were working ...

Today's gossip news you might've missed:

  • Robert Pattinson is the subject of our favorite rumor of the day, about a report that he's selling the Los Angeles home that he reportedly once shared with ex Kristen Stewart. A supposedly in-the-know source claims that "he said there are too many memories." Can you still hear the melodrama over the sound of our guffaws? [Us Weekly]
  • If the "Support Prince Harry with a Naked Salute" move takes off as much as planking did, we're all going to get to know our co-workers a lot more than intended ... [EW]
  • Apparently everything that happened while you were working involves a Brit, because here's our second favorite rumor of the day: The idea of Russell Brand and Ginger Spice dating. [The Sun]
  • If the combination of Britney Spears and Demi Lovato didn't clear up any lingering ratings concerns for Simon Cowell, adding Justin Bieber as a guest mentor should take care of them. [E!]
  • Sure, an alternate opening scene from "The Avengers" will be available on its DVD/Blu-ray release September 25, but why wait a month to see it? That's what the Internet's for. [GossipCop]

Shia LaBeouf: Credibility over money, please

By now you should be confident that Shia LaBeouf has a "by any means necessary" approach to acting. Having unsimulated sex, trying some moonshine ... he's willing to do it if it'll get him in character.

It's all part of an approach that his "Lawless" director John Hillcoat referred to in an interview with USA Today as "Method-like."

So in order to prepare for his role in 2013's "The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman," LaBeouf set aside a day for a quick acid trip.
