Shia LaBeouf’s groin sees plenty of action in his upcoming erotic film, Nymphomaniac. However, according to UK tabloid The Sun, he experienced some far more unpleasant groin action during a night out in London. The actor was reportedly kicked in the nethers by a bystander who witnessed Shia filming a drunk woman puking in the street.

The whole assault seems to be an act of misguided chivalry. Here’s the situation as we understand it: While out with friends, Shia reportedly began filming two women, one of whom was doing the technicolor yawn all over London’s Leicester Square. When the girls asked Shia to stop documenting this low point of their evening, he refused. In response, a man passing by took it upon himself to hit Shia twice in the face and kick him in the baby maker. Oof.

It’s unclear whether the attacker knew he was beating up a famous actor, but the two women Shia was filming only recognized him after he was brought to his knees. “I only realized it was Shia after he’d been beaten up,” one of the girls told The Sun. “If I’d known, I’d have let him film me as much as he liked. I have a massive crush on him.”

Well, we know if we ever meet our celebrity crushes, we totally want them to have a home video of us barfing. #sarcasm
