Since they are in the same age bracket perhaps they would have stumbled upon each other one day, or maybe not since the only movies they appear in together came about thanks to Bay’s explosive directing choices.
The two kindled up a friendship for the ages during their time on the big screen, but have they remained friends years later?
Megan Fox and Shia LaBeouf met on the set of ‘Transformers’
Fox and the Disney channel alum found themselves both cast in Transformers over a decade ago. The film, based on a successful ’80s franchise, promised to bring the childhood of many ’80s and ’90s kids to life.
To say it delivered would be an understatement. Sure, the show wasn’t well received by critics, but your run-of-the-mill fan was rather pleased with the performance. The eye-popping effects and insane action-packed scenes made it a visual experience that movie-goers would never forget.
But it wasn’t just the audience that took something away from the movie. Actors, Fox and LaBeouf, also began to form a unique friendship while bringing Mikaela Banes and Sam Witwicky to life.
LaBeouf admitted they hooked up in 2011
Back in 2011, LaBeouf spilled the beans about his and Fox’s romantic relationship to Details magazine. The admission came after a firm nod when he was asked if he and his hot co-star ever raised the stake in their friendship.
“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. 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.” – Shia LaBeouf
The bad-boy actor even went as far as to attack a Taco Bell cashier after the worker made a rude comment to Fox. Sure it was a hot-tempered move, but it was also pretty romantic since he took it upon himself to defend her honor!
Fox recently confirmed her romantic relationship with LaBeouf
It took seven years but the stunning gray-eyed brunette has finally confirmed her romantic fling with LaBeouf. Instead of telling all to a magazine like her former flame, she used her time on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live to finally publicize her feelings.
It wasn’t all her doing though. The stunner took a chance by playing “Plead the Fifth” with Cohen — a tantalizing “truth or truth” game. When asked about LaBeouf’s comments in Details magazine this was her response.
“I mean, I would confirm that it was romantic. I love him. I have never been really quiet about that. I love him.” – Megan Fox
Sure, she says she’s never been quiet about her love for her co-star, but it’s not something she’s ever gone out of her way to address either. In fact, this interview with Cohen was the first time Fox let her emotions be heard.
Are Megan Fox and Shia LaBeouf still friends?
Fox and LaBeouf have pretty much gone their separate ways ever since their “showmance” ended. Fox has been married to Brian Austin Green since 2010. Their relationship goes much further back though, six years to be exact.
LaBeouf, on the other hand, has been caught dishing out the PDA to eclectic singer FKA Twigs. Apparently the perfect pair is currently on a break but hopefully, they’ll find their way back into each other’s arms one day!
That isn’t to say the two Transformer actors aren’t friends. There’s just no word on the grapevine about them hanging out. Perhaps they have a long distance friendship that only rekindles every once in a while. Either way, the pair definitely don’t hold any animosity towards one another!
