Smooth, Shia, smooth

During Cannes we did speculate as to whether Shia Lebeouf (Transformers), a self confessed Nat fan boy, would try and meet her while he was there for Indy 4.

TWIST: Have you had any star-struck moments or celeb crushes?

Shia: I remember meeting Natalie Portman in France when I went to Cannes. That was pretty powerful just ’cause I’ve had a crush on her since forever and it’s funny. I walked up to her and I was like, “Wow, it’s so strange, I think I’m in love with you, completely 100 percent.” And she said, “Oh, nice to meet you” and she shook my hand and walked away. And she was very nice about it, but how do you respond to a person who’s completely insane?

I dunno about you but there’s something quite endearing about a big shot celeb like Shia showing so little tact. On the other hand, what was he thinking!
