Shia LaBeouf finds a friend in Bonnie

Excerpts from a recent article about Shia posted on

Shia Labeouf and his New “Girl” Friend

The Indiana Jones star Shia Labeouf, 22, opened up in an interview in L.A. about his infamous trouble with the opposite sex. He says he has the problem figured out. Asked if he had anyone specific in mind, he just laughed and said, “You wouldn’t believe me if I told you.”

Pushing for more details he finally said, “She is actually a regular on another film franchise. Uh, it has wizards in it.” Harry Potter anyone? Shia blurts out, “Yes, but it’s not who you’re thinking about.” He paused. “The one with the crazy eyebrows? No way.” Then he quietly mumbles to himself, “I never knew I’d like redheads.”

He went on saying, “I’m so surprised I even know her.” Believe me, so are we.

Oh, he is talking about the Harry Potter actress Bonnie Wright, who plays ‘Ginny Weasley’, Harry Potter’s latest love interest. How did he meet this young british actress you wonder? “When I was promoting Transformers I met her after the screening in London. We kept in touch.” The Indy star continued saying, “Last time we talked she had me laughing at –no I’m not gonna say what it was– but I ended up spilling my Starbucks drink all over my computer. She’s too normal and I think I kind of like that.” He goes on to say, “It’s nice to have someone to talk to and just, I don’t know. She has insecurities and worries, and thankfully, they go beyond the usual “Does this dress make me look fat?” crap I usually hear from most girls.”

Do you tease her about having to kiss Daniel Radcliffe in the upcoming Harry Potter film “The Half-Blood Prince”? His laughter sort of fades at this point and he manages to say, rather more subdued, “No, we didn’t really talk about it.”

Bonnie Wright is currently starring in the major Harry Potter movie franchise with “Half-Blood Prince” releasing on November 21, 2008. She was last spotted out at a London party. Bonnie’s parents own a high class jewelry store in Mayfair, London, called “Wright & Teague” with celebrity clients that include Keira Knightly, Kate Winslett, Clare Danes and Super Models Jessica Stam and Gisele Bündchen.
