INTERVIEW from Rönkkö / Turner on Vimeo.
Shia LaBeouf gave a shocking interview with Dazed
magazine, claiming that he had been raped by a woman during his infamous "I am Not Famous Anymore" gallery showing in Los Angeles last February.
"One woman who came with her boyfriend, who was outside the door when this happened, whipped my legs for ten minutes and then stripped my clothing and proceeded to rape me ... There were hundreds of people in line when she walked out with disheveled hair and smudged lipstick. It was no good, not just for me but her man as well. On top of that my girl was in line to see me, because it was Valentine’s Day and I was living in the gallery for the duration of the event – we were separated for five days, no communication. So it really hurt her as well, as I guess the news of it travelled through the line. When she came in she asked for an explanation, and I couldn’t speak, so we both sat with this unexplained trauma silently. It was painful."
Rape, whether it's male on female or female on male, is still a very important issue and we are glad the actor is shedding light on it.

Ok, so maybe Justin Bieber really is serious about this whole religious awakening, because on Wednesday the pop superstar spent the day with pastor Carl Lentz's family.
The 20-year-old singer posted the above photo with Lentz's daughter and wrote, "Made a snowman with this little cutie. Make memories with the ones you love! #HappyThanksgiving." It's not clear where Bieber was on Thursday, but seeing as he's Canadian and their Thanksgiving was last month, it doesn't appear as though the Biebs had any big plans. And he certainly wasn't with Selena Gomez -- she was with her friends and family in Texas.
Bieber and Lentz, who preaches at Hillsong Church in New York City, have been friends for 6 years now, and the two have been spending quite a bit of time together. Earlier this month it was reported that Bieber was on a mission to learn how to spread the word of God, and while he was supposed to spend two weeks with Lentz, it seems like he came home early.
Still, if Biebs looks to Lentz as a role model, that's going to help him get back on track. After a number of legal problems over the last few years (not to mention his relationship with Gomez becoming tabloid fodder), he could certainly benefit from cleaning up his act.
"I have a special role in Justin’s life, spiritually," Lentz told the New York Post
recently. "But I’m not a life-motivational guy. We’re talking about making sure his life remains a blessing, not a burden." OK then!

Angelina Jolie appeared on Australia's Today Show on Friday, and the 39-year-old actress didn't comment on the photos that surfaced of her and hubby Brad Pitt having a huge argument, but she did reveal that working with him wasn't a piece of cake.
"We haven't acted together for ten years. We decided we would do it again and we did a very small drama about family, about marriage in fact," she said. "We did a drama about a bad marriage." When the interviewer commented that was "skating on thin ice," Jolie said, "A lot of friends of ours thought is was a really ... they didn't say a bad idea ... but they asked us a few times if we were sure we wanted to do it."
During a chat with Australia's Channel 4 News earlier this week, Jolie said of her time with Pitt on set, "It (was) uncomfortable but we've already shot it, we've survived it and we're stronger for it. It was very tough material, so for any actors it was heavy dramatic emotional work."

Some of our favorite stars went big for turkey day and some kept it a little bit more low key, but most of them couldn't resist posting a few Instagram photos of themselves -- or their meals!
Miley Cyrus posed for a picture with her sister Brandi, and we're not sure what the ladies are drinking, but it looks like the Cyrus family had quite the feast at their Toluca Lake home. Miranda Kerr posted an adorable snapshot with her son Flynn, and while it was slightly less traditional, Demi Moore and daughter Rumer dressed up in animal onesies and posted a selfie. John Legend and wife Chrissy Teigen also posted a ton of pictures, and Jessica Simpson posted an adorable snapshot of her two children, Maxi and Ace, calling them her little "wild turkeys"!
Of course, the couples were taking over social media as well -- Kaley Cuoco and hubby Ryan Sweeting posed for a quick pic and Portia de Rossi took a sweet selfie with wife Ellen DeGeneres from the dinner table. Click the gallery below for more photos!

On Wednesday afternoon Gwen Stefani rounded up her three sons and went to a pre-Thanksgiving bash in their neighborhood, and as always, she looked amazing. We'd never try to pull off wedge sneakers and houndstooth-print leggings with an Adidas track jacket, but this is Gwen, people!
The 45-year-old singer carried her youngest son Apollo, and while Kingston was ready on time, little Zuma seemed more interested in shooting hoops in the driveway. Aww!

We're not sure what Lisa Rinna has done to her lips, but she needs to stop! Her mouth seriously looks like something that belongs on a wild animal...
On Wednesday the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
star went for a hike near her home in the valley, and while her bod looks amazing, her face is downright scary! Yesterday Lisa tweeted a meme that read, "I'm not perfect, but I'm always myself." Really though? We highly doubt those are the lips she was born with, so how can she really be herself if she's morphing into someone we don't even recognize?

Oooh, how artsy!
Kendall Jenner appears in the new issue of Dazed
Magazine, and though the 19-year-old starlet is in some utterly bizarre outfits (or wearing nothing at all!), she still looks stunning.
The publication honors "100 cultural renegades" who are changing the face of fashion, film, art and music, and other famous figures mentioned in the issue include Balmain creative director Olivier Rousteing and actress Kiernan Shipka.
Kendall chats with the mag about her rise to fame, and she even recreates the burn book scene from Mean Girls. That picture isn't on the mag's website, but we have a feeling they will release it sooner or later.
Check out the gallery below for more photos from Kendall's shoot!

Iggy Azalea appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon
on Wednesday evening, and at first it looked like the Aussie rapper was wearing a pair of reasonably (but not obscenely) fitted pink pants, but when she whipped around during her set, it was like she was wearing spandex in the back!
Iggy performed with The Ruths, but as soon as we got a peek at Iggy's cartoonishly perky derriere, we kinda stopped paying attention to the song. She looks great and we dig her music, but we just can't wrap our minds around what it would be like to have an ass like that.
In case you missed it, check out her performance below!
