It’s a rare occurrence that a show like The Insider has an intentionally funny moment, but last night when my TV mysteriously turned itself on and the monumentally stupid celebrity gossip show filled the screen, I was shocked to find myself laughing out loud at Shia LaBeouf’s interview with Lara Spencer. Shia was telling Lara about how, to prepare for his new sci-fi thriller, Eagle Eye, he met CIA operatives who played back his own personal phone conversations to him (which sounds like bullshit, but whatever). “Was it embarrassing?” Lara asks. That’s when Shia starts riffing on his secret affair with Touched By An Angel’s Della Reese, and refuses to let the joke go:
Oops, he might be my new favorite, too. Who knew Shia LaBeouf was that funny?
