Caught in Gay Swarm, Shia LaBeouf Activates Heterosexuality Shield

Transformers actor Shia LaBeouf got caught in one of those terrifying Gay Pride 'swarms' over the weekend.

Gatecrasher reports: Shia

Shia LaBeouf could have used some protection from Optimus Prime at the SoHo Grand on Sunday night. A source tells us that when the "Transformers" star asked the hotel's staff where he could find a "cool" soiree to attend, he was directed to the Pride Party at the Yard, an outdoor space that the Grand recently opened, where the Misshapes and Matt Kays were providing the entertainment.

Little did LaBeouf know, the celebration was chockablock with gay men who, our insider says, "swarmed" the actor when he arrived with his girlfriend. The source says the quick-thinking LaBeouf used his lady as a buffer and the two started "hard-core making out," just in case any of the boys were getting ideas.

  3. Does Towleroad cover this guy because someone here thinks he's attractive? It certainly isn't his awful acting or his arrogant personality that has won me over.

  5. First of all, there are too many holes in this story and it sounds like the publicist did a quick thinking job to cover why he was at a pride party.

    If it is true then gay men are seriously desperate. Come on, just cause he is famous?

  6. sorry, but what's "swarming"?

  7. If Chia LePet's "people" care that he's perceived by much of the public as an arrogant tool, items like this aren't helping.

    "Actors" in Summer Blockbuster Special Effects Extravaganzas are interchangeable and replaceable (See: Fox, Megan). Once the audience decides they don't care for an actor personally (See: Cruise, Tom) they stay away in droves, something his publicists would do well to keep in mind.

  9. What made-up crap. Another insecure so called straight man being stupid. Shia is not handsome nor his he a good actor. He's just simply ewe.

  10. Maybe the "swarm" was about the "bees" trying to establish who the 'Queen" was and Shia's pheromones were the most powerful. He's lucky they didn't drag him to a mailbox and try establish a colony, like some other bees did with a hunky mailman a few weeks ago in NYC!!!!

  11. Is that picture Photoshopped? Anybody know?

    Shia's easy on the eyes but he's a one note actor He has the same expressions in most of his movies and he lacks the gravitas to play serious roles.

    But,hey, I'll give him the benefit of the doubt and hopes he improves.

  12. That picture is smoking hot. What is it from?

  13. Should we all thank Harrison Ford and Steven Spielberg for making him a star?

  14. What an odd post.

    Posted by: Fenrox | Jun 28, 2011 12:06:43 PM


  15. I never found him to be attractive. I think he tries too hard to seem macho and that is a turn-off. I'm surprised he's still famous. I always imagined him to have a short-term career.

  16. This article suggests gay men are uncontrollably horny and deterred only by calling in emergency vagina. He's famous. He's going to get mobbed anywhere. Get a bodyguard or a new career and stfu.

  17. Shia Labeouf is a hottie. And I don't think his .masculinity' is an act.

    The story though is goofy.

  18. I suppose the question arises as to how much attention a celebrity is supposed to give fans in public before being left alone to do their own thing.

    I suspect that he would have done the same thing at any event, gay or not, in an attempt to gain a small amount of alone time with the person he was dating. It's easy to interrupt two people talking together, but more awkward to do so when they're kissing.

  19. Haahaa. I think the story is funny. Anyone who gets upset by this needs to calm the hell down. If it was a story about a gay man who used a PDA with another man to establish his sexuality in a room full of straight women no one on here would blink and eye. Kissing his girl friend was a quick, non-offensive way to establish some boundaries.

  20. Hold up! How many of you out there have never done this before? I've let it be known that I was with my date when I didn't want people hitting on me. Hugging, kissing them etc a) lets people know you're unavailable and b) lets your partner see that you're staking a claim and they shouldn't feel insecure.

    Does everyone in the world want to be hit on at all times by everyone?

    This is a non-story, IMO.

  21. @jay

    it was a quick way to prove he's a dumbass. he can keep his boundaries,ick.

  22. Some time ago I watched a short video where Shia and another male friend were playing some type of slapping game thingy where they were screaming "FAGGOT" at each other. Not someone I would pay to see.

  25. He is obviously an insecure straight guy in what is basically a profession filled with gay men- they can't all be as cool as James Franco
