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.”

Will Smith Beats Out Johnny Depp & Tom Cruise For 2008 Top Money Making Movie Star Title

Will Smith was voted the top earning star of 2008 in the Quigley Publishing Company’s 77th annual Top Ten Money Making Stars poll.

The Seven Pounds star beat out last year’s top Money Maker Johnny Depp and seven-time winner Tom Cruise, who both did not make the list this year. Smith is only the second African American to hold the title after Sidney Poitier nabbed the spot in 1968 following the success of the films Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner and In the Heat of the Night.

Robert Downey Jr., Christian Bale and Shia LaBeouf all made debut appearances on the list in second, third, and fourth places respectively.

The Quigley poll is conducted by the publishers of the International Motion Picture Almanac and surveys movie theater owners and film buyers to vote for the 10 stars they believe generated the most box office revenue for their theaters during the year.
