The 2014 FIFA World Cup has delivered beautiful bodies, thrilling upsets, and attractive fans far too pretty to stay put in the stands. Watching nearly one month of games has made us more familiar international players, but our pop culture obsessions make it difficult not to notice that more than a few could be stand-ins for some of Hollywood’s biggest stars.
Before you leave the office and head for the couch, here are the some of the biggest celebrity stories to take with you.
Truths are revealed about Kendall and Kylie Jenner‘s new book, Shia LaBeouf is spotted outside of a rehab center and lucky for us, Zac Efron table dancing to “Wiggle” was caught on camera.
NYC may be the new Hollywood, Courteney Cox announces her engagement and what does Transformers director Michael Bay have to say about the haters?
Shia LaBeouf is not the child star he used to be. He’s 27 years old now. He’s starring in the sexually explicit Lars von Trier film, Nymphomaniac, which hits theaters today. Most notably, his recent bouts of eccentric behavior have placed him at the center of a near-constant controversy for the past several months. To tell the truth, we think all of it’s kind of awesome—bar fights, an ultra-meta #IAMSORRY exhibit, an I AM NOT FAMOUS ANYMORE paper bag over his head on the red carpet. This has to be performance art, and if not, we can’t blame a rich, successful guy who’s been working in Hollywood since he was a kid for getting a little weird at some point.
Our main takeaway from this entire ordeal, though, are those clothes. Shia’s been on a heavy homeless chic wave, and we couldn’t help but imagine how odd his new appearance would look in his old films…so we went ahead and combined the two. Check out the gallery above to see how we’re Imagining Today’s Shia LaBeouf In His Most Beloved Roles From The Past and watch the video below to see what his co-star Christian Slater had to say about working with the young actor on the set of Nymphomaniac.
Do you want almost fifteen minutes of behind-the-scenes Game of Thrones scoop? Can Kristen Stewart handle the spotlight? What would The Lego Movie look like if it was filmed in real life?
So much for retiring from “all public life.”
Shia LaBeouf made headlines today following a brawl in a London pub. The actor allegedly head-butted a patron who insulted his girlfriend’s mother. According to video from TMZ, Shia appeared irate and didn’t initially back down, despite calls from his crew for him to stop.
Lena Dunham defends one specific aspect of HBO’s Girls, Hilary Duff is starting 2014 on her own, and Mark Wahlberg is planning a major beatdown against one of music’s biggest acts.
Darn that Jewish calendar — Hanukkah is crazy early this year, isn’t it? The Festival of Lights begins at sundown tonight, and we’ve hardly had time to shop for presents. We did, however, plan the most amazing Hanukkah on the planet, featuring the most beautiful and famous Jews on the planet, from Bar Refaeli and Drake to Shia LaBeouf and Scarlett Johansson.
As Disney stars gone wild go, Shia LaBeouf has been a little overshadowed lately by a certain girl formerly known as Hannah Montana, but with the release this weekend of Charlie Countryman, we were reminded of his tales of dropping acid to prepare for his role in the movie. LaBeouf plays an American visiting Bucharest, Romania, who falls in love with a beautiful cellist (Evan Rachel Wood) and gets mixed up with some dangerous mobsters (after getting slipped ecstasy, not acid, by his youth hostel roommates). When VH1 sat down with Wood this week, we asked what it’s like to play opposite a guy who’ll alter his brain to get into a scene.
