Yup, it came as a surprise to us too.

Sure, it seems that Shia LaBeouf has set out to get himself ejected from every single theater on Broadway. Sure, he keeps quitting Hollywood in the most irritatingly press-hungry way possible. And yes, sure, he may have done that whole thing with the paper bag.

But that doesn't mean Megan Fox doesn't still have his back.

  Even if she's got cooler friends now...

Speaking to the NY Daily News, she revealed that no matter what we may all think - and that our eyes, ears and (you can only assume) noses may tell us - Shia's doing alright:

“I love my Shia. He’s perfectly fine. I haven’t talked to him in a couple of years, but I don’t worry about him. He’s a brilliant kid, talented and funny. ... There’s no reason to worry.”

Other than, y'know, the buttload of trouble he's constantly getting into.

  And this whole movie.
And this whole movie.

Which, when you think about it, is pretty darned nice.

Sure, the two of them may have fooled around a few times back on the set of Transformers - if you believe LaBeouf, anyhow - but clearly they were, several years ago at least, friends. And, just as clearly, new-mom Megan Fox still has her bro's back.

  Just like in that movie with the talking cars.

Though, that being said, it's noticeable that the amount of time she hasn't seen him syncs up pretty perfectly with the amount of time she's had kids.

It's all well and good to have a friends back, but a whole other thing entirely to invite a guy who starts fights with homeless dudes around to babysit.


What do you guys think? Is Megan Fox right to defend Shia LaBeouf?
