Frenzied reports in the past twelve hours of “Transformers” star Shia LaBeouf getting at least one of his fingers amputated are “totally untrue” according to the actor’s publicist.
Speaking with The LA Times, the rep shot down the report which originated at Star Magazine yesterday. That report alleged that the 22-year-old actor called producers of “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” the other day to tell him that his left pinky finger, which was injured during his car accident in West Hollywood two weeks ago, may have to be amputated
Like all online gossip it quickly took on a life of its own, one finger became 2-3 fingers and still others speculated that the missing fingers would actually be worked into the film’s storyline. That particular nonsense started when quotes from an Access Hollywood interview with Michael Bay indicated that he’s figuring out a way to shoot around LaBeouf’s injuries.
