Back in the summer of 2007, rumors had been circulating that [movieperson id="313344"]Shia LaBeouf[/movieperson] and [artist id="1940303"]Rihanna[/artist] were dating after duo were spotted eating together in Beverly Hills.
Well, nearly two years after the reported romance took place, the "Transformers" star has admitted that the pair were actually on a date around that time, but it just didn't work out for them.
"[I was] filming a sword fight when I got the message. I said, 'Can this be my life?' " LaBeouf told Playboy (for the magazine's June issue) about how he was first contacted by the singer. The two later decided via text message to meet up.
"It never got beyond one date," he added. "The spark wasn't there. We weren't passionate about each other in that way, so we remain friends."
After clearing up the rumors, he did admit that any woman he meets and dates will have to live up to his mom, whom he considers the kind of woman he'd date if she weren't his mom. "Probably the sexiest woman I know is my mother. She's an ethereal angel. Nobody looks like that woman," he said. "If I could meet my mother and marry her, I would. I would be with my mother now, if she weren't my mother, as sick as that sounds."
The actor did, however, list a few other Hollywood ladies he considers hot: "[movieperson id="323117"]Ellen Page[/movieperson], [movieperson id="201379"]Evan Rachel Wood[/movieperson], [movieperson id="204509"]Camilla Belle[/movieperson], [movieperson id="262629"]Kristen Stewart[/movieperson] from 'Twilight,' " he said. "The best of the bunch is [movieperson id="204838"]Amber Tamblyn[/movieperson], from the 'Sisterhood of Traveling Pants' movies. She may be better than all the dudes."
