Shia Labeouf, Megan Fox hit the back seat for ‘Transformers’

June 28, 2011

Here’s one that goes down in the PR guidebook for good movie promotion.

Actor Shia Labeouf was making headlines on Tuesday — only hours before his new movie “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” premiered in theaters — with an interview published in Details magazine in which he claims that he and former “Transformers” co-star Megan Fox shared some intimate moments on the set of the films. It makes us wonder what exactly took place in the back seats of those shape-shifting “Transformers” cars.

The Details profile says its reporter asked LaBeouf if he had “hooked up” with the 25 year-old sex symbol, and the actor nodded in the affirmative. “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,” LaBeouf told the magazine. “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 on-screen,” he said.

The 25 year-old LaBeouf was asked by Details if, at the time he and Fox were together, she was in a relationship with then boyfriend and now husband Brian Austin Green. “I don’t know,” LaBeouf said, repeating the answer several times according to the magazine. A representative for Fox declined comment.

Fox starred in the 2007 “Transformers” and the 2009 sequel “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen,” but she was dropped from the franchise for the third film. “Dark of the Moon,” in the latest installment Fox has been replaced with former lingerie model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. We wonder what stories the actor might cook up, if any, about hooking up with her four years from now on, say, “Transformers 5″.
