    Uh-oh. Do we spot a celebrity scandal on the horizon? After a flood of rumours, Shia LaBeouf has admitted he did have a fling with Megan Fox during the making of the first two Transformers movies, but didn’t know if she was with then-boyfriend Brian Austin Green at the time.


    Speaking of the sizzling chemistry with his 2006 co-star, he said struggled to separate ‘work and life’ during filming of the action-packed movie.

    ‘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,’ he told Details magazine in a new interview.

    ‘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 on screen.’

    Asked if Megan was with now-husband Brian Austin Green at the time – the couple dated on and off since 2004 – sheepish Shia seemed a little unsure.

    ‘I don’t know, man. I don’t know. I don’t know. I don’t know,’ he said, finally adding: ‘It was what it was.’

    Right then.

    Shia, who stars with Victoria’s Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in the upcoming movie, Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon, also branded it a ‘blessing in disguise’ Megan wasn’t in the third movie.

    ‘I love Megan. She was great in the movies she was in, fun to work with, great energy, great personality,’ he told E! Online.

    ‘But it’s kind of a blessing that she wasn’t in this movie, selfishly.

    ‘In the second movie, [Sam and Mikaela] became one character. There was no arc. There was no room for Sam to be heroic. They were sharing the same experience.’
