Morning Sideboob: Channing Tatum Recalls Wild Drunken Night With Shia LaBeouf
Channing Tatum’s Wild Night With Shia LeBeouf
Channing Tatum is really spilling entries from his personal diary in the latest issue of GQ. First he admitted to being a high-functioning alcoholic his wife has to deal with cuz she married him knowing it. And now he’s revealing the details of a drunken night he shared with Shia LeBeouf, his co-star at the time of 2006’s A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints.
Me and Shia, I think we had just met that day. We were, like, ‘What shall we go out and do?’ We were drinking. And I think our initial thing was ‘Alright, let’s go out and try and get in a fight!’ This was just young, dumb idiot actors thinking that that’s going to bond us. Because we’ll shed blood together, blah, blah, blah. I’ve never seen him since then.
GQ has ways of making people talk, cuz in 2008, Shia spoke about this same night. His retelling was a lot juicier, of course.
Shia’s version was:
We were walking around the Upper East Side in this rebel mind-set, trying to be like street kids, Channing was supposed to be the head honcho in the movie, so he goes, ‘All right, you see that bookstore? Somebody throw a rock. Let’s break in and steal a Spider-Man bookmark.’ And Peter and me look at each other like, ‘Dude, what? Are you f–king kidding me?'” According to LaBeouf, Tatum then broke the plate-glass window, setting off the security system. “He grabs the bookmarks and jets,” LaBeouf told the magazine. “So now you got these little actor kids running down the street in New York, freaking out.”
When the interview initially came out, Channing’s camp said it was “inaccurate.” Nice to see Channing is now copping to his part.
I definitely kicked in a window that night. But it wasn’t Barnes and Nobles. Just a window. I was running. I think Shia even punched a cop car—we weren’t even sure if the cop was in the car, he punched the window of a cop car. It was pandemonium. It was just one of those nights that the volume just keeps getting turned up, turned up, turned up.
A lot of time has passed since that night, and the two actors have grown up. Channing is now an alcoholic stripper, while Shia is an alcoholic boxing-enthusiast performance artist.
Macaulay Culkin’s Pizza Underground Band Booed Off Stage
You know what happens when you make a ridiculous amount of money as a child actor? Things like worrying about how you’re going to pay rent or afford to eat go out the window. Work? Forget it. As long as you don’t snort it all up your nose and invest wisely, you can call it a day on punching the clock long before you’re even of legal drinking age. For instance, that “Malcolm in the Middle” guy? He’s driving race cars and playing the drums in some terrible band.
After hiding away from society for a spell, Macaulay Culkin has emerged in a very interesting manner. It has nothing to do with being on the silver screen, even though he showed strong acting chops as an adult in Party Monster and Saved! No, now he’s in a Warholian-type performance band that sings songs about pizza set to Velvet Underground.
Here he is eating a piece of pizza—a take on Andy Warhol’s hamburger-eating “art.”
We know you’re dying to hear the band. Yes, that’s Mac wearing a piece of pizza on his face while playing a kazoo.
Somebody thought it was an extraordinary idea to book the band at UK’s Dot To Dot Festival in Nottingham, England, over the weekend. Exactly what you think would happen happened: lots of boos and beer bottles thrown.
Macaulay Culkin reportedly asked the crowd why they were throwing beer, when he’d rather be drinking it. Culkin and his band lasted just one more song before they finally gave in and abandoned the stage.
There has to be ways in which free time can be better spent.
Rick Ross Gets a Terrible Tattoo
Celebrities are not known for having stellar ink. Off the top of our heads, the only one we can think of—A-lister or otherwise—who appears to have put some thought and money into his is The Rock, with his Samoan-inspired tattoo.
The examples of badly done designs range from Angelina Jolie’s “Billy Bob” tattoo to Mike Tyson’s tribal facial design, everything on Justin Bieber’s body, the kitty on Miley’s lip,
Kesha’s “Suck It” tattoo,
and Chris Brown’s beat-up-woman-no-it’s-a-Day-of-the-Dead piece.
Well, there’s a new member in the “what the hell were they thinking?” bad celebrity tattoo hall of fame: rapper Rick Ross.
“Rich Forever”…since he’s reportedly worth $30 million, the piece seems fitting. It’s good to know he has the option of growing in the beard completely.
