Oh, good. Just what we need: Shia LaBeouf, out in the wild.
For his latest performance art piece, LaBeouf is teaming up with frequent collaborators Rönkkö and Turner and of course Vice to travel the country using GPS coordinates and like, hitchhiking everywhere and doing things for fans? Sure, fine. Art. But, why do we care?
For the next 30 days, you can find the actor and his friends using the GPS coordinates they tweet or by visiting the #TakeMeAnywhere website, where you can track their movements. And I guess the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art is sponsoring it, so, hey, somebody still likes the guy.
According to Time, LaBeouf thinks the project is about “making friends” and “finding meaning” in life and has pledged to do just about anything strangers ask of him along the way. And if you need any suggestions, he’s reallly good at having a bag over his head, plagiarizing and heck, he’ll even terrorize his own girlfriend!
The piece started in Lyons, Colorado on Monday, where five friends met up with the actor for a free lunch at the mircrobrewery Oskar Blues. Next stop? Irrelevance.

Oops! Unintended shade thrown!
Here’s Anne Hathaway looking very Victorian-witchy at the premiere of Disney’s Alice Through The Looking Glass at the El Capitan Theatre. This lovely photo was taken right before she had a little Instagram drama on Monday night, back when all was calm and some Kardashian fans did’t get POUTY. So what’s the deal? Well, Anne had to quickly clarify an earlier picture she posted which some took as shade thrown towards the KarJenner crew.
The original post (which has now been deleted,)was a meme, featuring actress Helena Bonham Carter with the words “In a world of Kardashians… Be a Helena Bonham Carter.”
That post has now been replaced with a picture of a message that reads, “Post removed for unintended shade thrown.” The new mom captioned the post, “It never occurred to me I was pitting anyone against each other. Not my style. Peace x.”
Really? Did it REALLY REALLY hurt the Kardashian’s feelings? Please. While this move was okay, it seems a little TOO sensitive, don’t you think? Like, COME ON.
What do you think of Anne Hathaway’s instagram post removal? Too sensitive or super mature? WEIGH IN BELOW!

After the debacle that was By the Sea, hell, why not?
Angelina has always emphasized her humanitarian work. And because Brad is currently filming a movie with Marion Cotillard in England and all over Europe, it’s convenient that Angie stick to her nonprofit and advocacy stuff and get a side gig. And so, she did: A visiting professorship at The London School of Economics.
Angelina Jolie Pitt is taking her passion for women’s rights and gender equality to the classroom. The actress, 40, is set to join the London School of Economics as a visiting professor for the new masters course on women, peace and security for the 2016-2017 school year. As a visiting professor, Jolie Pitt will deliver guest lectures, participate in workshop and public events, and continue research on projects.
“I am very encouraged by the creation of this master’s programme. I hope other academic institutions will follow this example, as it is vital that we broaden the discussion on how to advance women’s rights and end impunity for crimes that disproportionately affect women, such as sexual violence in conflict,” Jolie Pitt said in a statement. “I am looking forward to teaching and to learning from the students as well as to sharing my own experiences of working alongside governments and the United Nations.”
The course, which is the first of its kind internationally, was launched last year by Jolie Pitt and Britain’s former foreign secretary, William Hauge – who will also serve as a visiting professor.
The Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace and Security Ambassador Melanne Verveer said they, too, are looking forward to bringing the program to the stateside campus.
“I was pleased to meet with Angelina Jolie during my recent trip to London on ways we at Georgetown University can continue the collaboration between our sister programs on both sides of the Atlantic,” said Verveer. “We look forward to welcoming Angelina and former foreign secretary Hague to Georgetown in the future.”
Can you even imagine being a nerdy British econ nerd and walking into your classroom and Angelina Jolie is there, taking role call? OMG.

Tom Cruise is moving to a different coast…
The Mission Impossible star’s Los Angeles compound is currently in escrow after selling for $40 million, and the actor is hitting the ROAD. But don’t stress about Tom not making a return on his investment- he bought the property (that he shared with Katie Holmes during their six-year marriage) in 2007 for $30.5 million.
“Tom has long planned to leave L.A.,” says a source. “He doesn’t need to be there for work – he’s off doing movies all around the world. It’s not the center of his life anymore.”
So where’s he headed?! Find out, after the jump!
