In LA it is quite common for celebrities to run into one another all over town, at restaurants, stores, on the street and definitely at events. It is pretty much expected that when celebs run into one another, they will at least acknowledge one another in greeting even if they do not know one another (and even if they are not fond of one another). Yesterday, Joe Jonas and Shia LaBeouf crossed paths in West Hollywood and altho they walked right by one another … neither acknowledged the other’s existence … like, at all. LOL! Check out the awkward photos below.
If you once imagined that in Hollywood you bump into celebrities every day only to be disabused of this notion, this picture is for you. Because today, in a fairly quiet area of Hollywood called Sunset Plaza, Joe Jonas and Shia LaBeouf nearly bumped into each other on the street. Jonas, 21 , as you can see below, is pulling the same face we all do when we’ve a) seen someone we know but don’t want to talk to, or b) seen someone we know but are unsure if they remember/know who we are. Transformers star LeBeouf on the other hand, seems genuinely not to have noticed the singing Puritan. The 25-year-old is, of course, regarded as one of the coolest men in the film industry today, so perhaps LaBeouf was simply rocking his poker face. And he was heading determinedly to Cafe Med, which serves the most delicious pasta in Hollywood, so perhaps hunger was driving him on. Those of you familiar with L.A and the love of automobiles which renders walking a less acceptable pursuit in the community than even smoking, or heaven forbid, aging, will wonder what the two stars are doing on foot.
HMMMM. I have to say … perhaps it was a matter of mistaken identity? After all, it’s entirely possible that Joe mistook Shia for a homeless person:
And Shia, on the other hand … well, he strikes me as the kind of guy who doesn’t like to get friendly with too many people. Honestly, this inadvertent snub is really no big deal but it is kinda funny. I kinda wish they would have wordlessly high-fived one another or something ;)
