One of Shia LaBeouf’s biggest fans’ dreams came true when she met the “Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen” actor during his appearance on NBC’s the “Today” show Thursday morning.
As the show went to commerical, Matt Lauer was outside, where he put a sign-toting fan on camera, who said she would love to meet the “Transformers” star.
During the interview, co-host Meredith Vieira told Shia that there was a young lady named Samantha outside the studio who was dying to meet him.
“I like Samantha a lot. She seems like a real special person,” Shia said, having seen her being interviewed prior to his segment. “I would love to meet her – is she here?”
And Shia got his chance to meet his adoring fan, when she entered the studio with coffee for the 23-year-old actor.
“You look great,” the actor said, and asked if she is wearing her “say nice things to Shia outfit?”
“I’ve been planning this all week,” the 20-year-old fan exclaimed, “and I bought this [pointed to her floral print skirt] … I can’t believe this!”
Meredith gave Samantha her seat and told her she could ask Shia one question.
“I don’t know what to ask … I’m in shock,” Samantha said, stammering with excitement. “What kind of girl are you interested in? Honestly, just be honest.”
“All kinds,” Shia said, adding that he does not have a girlfriend. “What are you doing the rest of the day? My day is boring.”
Shia then said to Meredith, “Thanks for this love connection,” before the show cut to commercial.
