Shia LaBeouf recently received a swift kick to the crotch after he attempted to film a woman vomiting while shooting a movie overseas.
According to various reports, the Transformers star and his buddy stumbled across two ladies who were in the process of emptying their stomachs in Leicester Square. Instead of lending a helping hand, the actor decided to film the puke with his phone.
Not surprisingly, the girls weren't too excited about having Shia LaBeouf film their sickness. Although they asked him to take a hike, LaBeouf opted to stick around for a while longer. It was around this time that a stranger decided to get in on the action.
Since the Even Stevens alum wouldn't leave them alone, the anonymous individual asked the actor to pound a little pavement. When he refused to listen to reason, the stranger decided to get physical. Yahoo! explains that LaBeouf was reportedly punched in the face and kicked in the groin.
Of course, the girls had no idea that Shia LaBeouf was the weirdo filming their very public vomiting session. One of the women involved in the confrontation explained that she probably wouldn't have minded if she'd known it was the actor holding the camera.
"I only realized it was Shia after he'd been beaten up. If I'd known, I'd have let him film me as much as he liked. I have a massive crush on him," the woman told The Sun.
According to the Daily Mail, trouble seems to follow the talented actor around. He reportedly got into a fight with a bar patron over a baseball cap last year.
"The guy just took it off him and wouldn't give it back. He tried to get it back and they ended up tussling. It was handbags really. But it shows that even Hollywood stars can't avoid grief down this way," an anonymous source explained.
The actor is currently filming the World War II flick Fury in England. The film also features World War Z star Brad Pitt. The movie should arrive in theaters at some point next year.
