In summer ’07, reports surfaced linking Rihanna to movie star Shia LaBeouf after the two stars were spotted eating and drinking together in L.A.
Now, in an interview with Playboy, LaBeouf admits that he did in fact date the pop princess–but their match wasn’t one made in heaven.
“[I was] filming a sword fight when I got the message. I said, ‘Can this be my life?’ ” LaBeouf said in the magazine’s June issue about how Ri Ri made her first move. The two later decided to hookup in person via text message.
“It never got beyond one date,” he added before saying his mom was the sexiest woman alive. “The spark wasn’t there. We weren’t passionate about each other in that way, so we remain friends.”
