In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Jimmy Fallon makes us laugh, Shia LaBeof shows us his abs, and Kris Jenner makes a sex tape.
HIT: Fallon, Timberlake and Carell make us laugh
When these three get together, it’s nothing but laughs. Carell and Timberlake pose as salesmen with fake arms and who’ve names their suits after former ‘N Syanc members Lance Bass and Joey Fatone. Justin also makes some refernces to his song Suit & Tie . Brilliant.
MISS: Kris Jenner Sex Tape
Okay ew, eww, ewww! Like mother, like daughter. Kim isn’t the only one who’s showing off her assets on-screen. According to Enquirer‘s source, ”Kris was talking about how liberating it was to be filmed having sex and how it was a turn-on to watch herself with her lover.” Kris you better go back and burn that tape. Ain’t nobody wanna see that!
HIT: Shia LaBeouf’s hot abs
With Spring Breakers in theatres, you can’t help to wonder – when did Selena Gomez grow up? It’s only been a year since the Disney star has appeared on Wizard of Waverly Place, but with her career continuing to skyrocket, it’s been a busy one. Then you look at her co-star Vanessa Hudgens who has completely transition herself from sweet Gabriella on High School Musical to her own person, taking on mature roles. Too bad some other Disney stars can’t say the same.
Here’s just a quick and handy chart to show you what life is like after Disney.
The legacy of Indiana Jones is shot to shi*t in this honest trailer, which pokes fun of Harrison Ford’s age, awkward plot arcs and Steven Spielberg’s unbelievably BAD special effects. We all thought it. The new installment of Indiana Jones is a sham of the once adored franchise. As this honest trailer confesses “you will wish you were watching the mummy.”
Maybe it’s time for the franchise to pull a James Bond and recast Indiana Jones? I love Harrison Ford but the guy is getting a little old for swinging on ropes and battling extra-terrestrials. And about that, since when is Indiana Jones about aliens? Isn’t it about history and past beings? Maybe I’m too young to remember. This “honest trailer” is hysterical and acknowledges everything we thought when we watched the film the first time. Fun fact: There WILL be another Indiana Jones with Harrison Ford. Maybe the honest trailer for that will just be Ford and Spielberg running in a jungle asking “why are we even trying?”
These honest trailers have exploited the true nature of many other films like Twilight: New Moon, and The Lord of the Rings. You can be sure there are plenty “precious” Edward Cullen puns. What other awful movies do you think screenjunkies should make honest trailers for?
Watch the Honest Trailer here
The official trailer for the new American gangster drama ‘Lawless’ is out and it looks totally wicked.
Set in Virginia during the Depression-era, the film is based on the true story of the infamous Bondurant Brothers (played by Shia LaBeouf and Tom Hardy), two bootlegging siblings who are threatened by authorities who want a cut of their profits.
While I see a couple of parallels between this flick and ‘Gangster Squad‘, it’ll definitely be interesting to see LaBeouf acting in something a little more different than the Transformers movies. I can’t wait to see him broaden his acting horizons!
Set to release on August 29, the film directed by John Hillcoat also features a star-studded cast. Already receiving positive reviews from the Cannes Film Festival, Jessica Chastain, Jason Clare, Gary Oldman and Mia Wasikowska also star in the movie.
If Transformers was marketed correctly, this is how the trailer would look. From the horse-faced director who starts shooting before finishing scripts, and the children’s cartoon designed to sell toys, comes the movie designed to sell toys. That’s how this honest trailer for
Battleship Transformers begins.
The movie stars Burger King, eBay, GMC, X-Box, Mountain Dew and Chevrolet. It also features a stuttering teenager and gratuitous porny shots of Megan Fox. ”Seriously, it’s f*cking stupid,” says epic narrator guy.
Now this movie I would actually see. Oh, and these guys have Honest Trailers for Twilight and Titanic too.
There once was a famous actor named Shia Labeouf who wowed us with his acting skills. But he had a deep, dark secret. He stalked through the woods at night, hunting for his prey — ready to strike with a blunt weapon.
Yes, he is a cannibal. And also, someone has a lot of time on their hands to create this video about Cannibal Shia LaBeouf. The original song “Shia LaBeouf” was created by Rob Cantor and the visuals were created after.
Watch it here:
Apparently everyone is really into hairstyles today. Earlier, Lindsay Lohan made national headlines when she
did something worthwhile died her hair. And now Shia Labeouf is getting the same treatment for sporting a big, burly lumberjack beard. He completed the look with an old Grandpa sweater and plaid shirt, and was presumably running from his stylist.
This sends a horrible message to celebrities: instead of gaining attention for a producing a cool new project, just change your hairstyle.
In case the first, second and third blockbusters weren’t enough for you, there will be yet another Transformers installment with director Michael Bay at the helm. He even gave out the release date on his website, so if you’re so inclined you can mark June 29, 2014 on your calender:
Last year’s “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” was a cash cow, rounding out as the fourth highest-grossing film ever — that’s right EVER — earning $1.24 billion worldwide.
There’s no word on whether star Shia LaBeouf will be back for another go but there’s speculation that he won’t be. That makes sense. The film’s producer, Lorenzo di Bonaventura told MTV News that the film will be a reboot that’s an evolution of the previous film.
“I think the challenge there is that we are really going to do a reboot and what that’s going to be, we don’t even know yet,” di Bonaventura told MTV News.
I’d like to think that as the years go by, we get better and better looking. We always evolve from an ugly duckling to a beautiful swan.
Just look at these before and after pictures of some of the hottest stars in Hollywood. They used to have bushy eyebrows, but now they have neatly threaded brows. They used to have frizzy hair, but now they have lucious long locks. They used to have a crooked nose, but now it’s thin and even due to many surgical procedures.
Oh No They Didn’t posted dozens of before and after shots and we’ve picked our favourite 10. Check them out.

Amber Rose still looks the same.
Shia LaBeouf lets Optimus Prime and Bumblebee sit this one out while he directs Kid Cudi in a short film called “Maniac”. This isn’ the first time the 25-year-old Transformers star collaborated with the rapper. Last year he directed Cudi’s music video for “Marijuana” which featured the avid rhymer partying and smoking weed in Amsterdam – a typical Kid Cudi scenerio.
This time around, “Maniac” is like a disturbed episode of Criminal Minds that didn’t make it past the cutting room floor. Inspired by one of his songs off Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager, Cudi is seen with fellow rapper Cage as they go on a murderous rampage throughout town. It’s mega-creepy and graphic for just a 10 minute shortie. Expect to be soiling your pants by the half-way mark.
Last night Shia LaBeouf got a severe taste of street justice after a fat guy beat him like a red-headed-step child (we’re allowed to make the jokes, @itsbooyeah is a ginger).
According to TMZ Shia was involved in an altercation outside of a bar in Vancouver called Cinema Public House when this happened:
Why would anyone want to take a swing at Shia LaBeouf? (Pause for sarcasm to take effect)
Well, you could speculate it was on account of a number of drunken altercations, his DUI, the press junkets where he compares his work in Transformers to cinematic masterpieces like Citizen Kane, or the simple explanation that he is a douchebag. After all, this is the very same actor that has such a severe Oedipus complex he openly stated he would sleep with his mother (if she wasn’t his mom).
Furthermore, he’s a deliberate bohemian that basks in controversy and celebrates confrontation. So, good for you Shia, Napoleon would be proud. The fact that you threw your 105 pound manorexic frame into an ass-kicking and attempted to go for seconds proves that you’re a true warrior. It’s too bad that all those stunt fighting classes never really paid off, but seriously, I’m glad that aside from a bruised ego, no one actually got hurt.
This shouldn’t really surprise anybody – but still nice to know. In a recent interview with Details.com, Shia LaBeouf indicated that he hooked up with Megan Fox – nice!
Although its not 100% clear, during the interview, the interviewer asked LaBeouf directly if he ever hooked up with Megan. His response? The article said, “LaBeouf nods affirmatively.”
LaBeouf explained, “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 onscreen.”
OK is this really that surprising to anybody? Two hot celebrities in the same movie – it was bound to happen.
Shia LaBeouf lived out every celebrity’s fantasy this week by dumping coffee on a paparazzi in Washington D.C.
PopSugar reports the actor was sitting on a patio having a coffee. Suddenly LaBeouf is seen packing up his stuff and running up to the photographer and splashing him with the coffee. Shia is then seen running off.
So is LaBeouf a little brat or standing up for celebrities everywhere?
That’s right! You are not alone. That is, if you were disappointed by the Indian Jones sequel, Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. And guess what … star of the movie, Shia LaBeouf, felt the same way, reports MTV News.
Last week at the Cannes Film Festival, LaBeouf made his opinion on the movie very clear.
“I feel like I dropped the ball on the legacy that people loved and cherished,” LaBeouf said. “You get to monkey-swinging and things like that and you can blame it on the writer and you can blame it on Steven [Spielberg, director]. But the actor’s job is to make it come alive and make it work, and I couldn’t do it. So that’s my fault. Simple.”
But the star was not just concentrated and concerned about himself. LaBeouf is aware of the perception that’s out there and he shows respect for the audience.
“I think the audience is pretty intelligent. I think they know when you’ve made [crap],” LaBeouf said. “And I think if you don’t acknowledge it, then why do they trust you the next time you’re promoting a movie?”
This unusual display of honesty in an industry typically driven by studios and publicists is quite nice. But there is always the down side for speaking out.
“I’ll probably get a call,” LaBeouf said. “But [Spielberg] needs to hear this. I love him. I love Steven … And I would never disrespect the man … But when you drop the ball you drop the ball.”
Sorry “New York, I Love You,” not everyone will fall head over heels for you. The film interlocks a series of shorts from 11 directors – all based in The Big Apple.
Of course, a vignette set in New York City has only one place to start off: a yellow taxicab. “Hangover” buddies Bradley Cooper and Justin Bartha kick off the movie by playing strangers who land the same cab. But aside from the yellow car, a few distinct restaurants and references to Central Park, “New York, I Love” seems like it could take place in any other metropolis. It fails to show what makes New York one of the most visited cities in the world.
To be fair, each director had only two days to shoot their short film and a week to edit each segment. But you would think that a diverse group of directors from around the world (including Yvan Attal from France, Jiang Wen from China, Shekhar Kapur and others) would paint a multicultural picture of New York –which is not the case. That being said, at least there’s an abundance of love in this movie, ranging from platonic love to parental.
There are definitely worthwhile moments as well as both acting and directing revelations in “New York, I Love You.” Natalie Portman, for example, takes both a behind the camera role and an on-screen one (playing a Hasidic diamond broker). The short she directs, featuring Taylor Geare (who plays Portman’s daughter in the upcoming movie “Brothers”), is a highlight of the movie. Also keep an eye out for Anton Yelchin who had a supporting role in this year’s revamped “Star Trek.” He proves in this movie that he could very well give both Michael Cera and Jesse Eisenberg a run for their money.
After the hit gambling movie “21,” Kevin Spacey is once again teaming up with author Ben Mezrich to produce “The Social Network,” an adaptation of the the new book “The Accidental Billionaires.” The book tells the story of Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg.
There have been rumours that actors including “Transformers” star Shia Labeouf, Canadian Michael Cera and “I Love You, Beth Cooper’s” Paul Rust are up for the lead role. However, in an interview with MTV News, Spacey set the record straight and said no one has read for the part.
“I can’t imagine anyone’s read for it because we haven’t really announced the director…So I don’t think anyone’s read for it. Maybe in their fantasy they’ve auditioned for it,” he told MTV News.
Critics may have given thumbs down to “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen,” but that sure isn’t stopping fans from watching the action flick on the silver screen.
After just 14 days in theatres, the sequel to the highly successful “Transformers” raked in an impressive $300 million in U.S. ticket sales, making it second to last summers blockbuster hit “The Dark Knight” in terms of box office figures.
The first film — starring Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox — grossed $319.2 million domestically during its entire time in theatres and $700 million worldwide.
Jason Mesnick and Jillian Harris — reality stars of ABC’s “Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” — may have to move aside because “Gossip Girl’s” Chase Crawford is “the hottest bachelor” according to People magazine.
After all, the 23-year-old actor has had quite a busy year. Crawford starred in one of the most buzzed-about TV shows, garnered a role that allows him to share the screen with Kiefer Sutherland and has recently been cast as the lead in the highly anticipated “footloose” remake.
But don’t be fooled by his success, Crawford’s ideal date involves a simple beer and pool table. “All you need is a pool table, beer, an electric jukebox and good conversation,” he told People magazine. “The day a girl beats me in a game of Beirut [a kind of beer pong] is a good sign!”
“Star Trek’s” Chris Pine and “Transformers” star Shia Labeouf have also made the cut. This year’s list also includes “American Idol” runner-up Adam Lambert and “90210’s” Ryan Eggold. From “Twilight,” both Robert Pattinson and Kellan Lutz are listed among the 45 bachelors.
Actor Shia LaBeouf had his license suspended on Saturday due to his refusal to take a Breathalyzer test when he was busted on suspicion of driving under the influence after a July car crash, a DMV official said to E! News.
“It was suspended for refusing a chemical test,” said the official, who explained to E! News that although LaBeouf was cleared of DUI charges after investigators determined the accident was caused by the other driver, the suspension was “automatic.”
The young actor has required two surgeries due to a crushed hand after his rollover crash on July 27. The accident was caused after a driver ran a red light, crashing into LaBeouf’s car.
According to California law, drivers who refuse to take a breath, blood or urine test for a suspected DUI can have their license suspended for up to one year.
According to E News, Shia LaBeouf is going to be taking a little break from filming due to a severe injury to his left hand in a July 27 rollover crash.
“Shia’s hand is totally shattered, it’s much worse than anyone thought,” the source said.
LaBeouf, 22, somehow managed to film through his injury in “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen”, however, was forced to drop out of the upcoming technology-themed thriller Dark Fields. Production on the film had already been delayed thanks to its now former star’s medical issues.
LaBeouf, who already underwent one extensive surgery in the days immediately following his accident, requires a second procedure to further repair the area around his thumb.
