met on the set of Oliver Stone
’s new film Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps
, so the director is quick to take credit for setting them up.
He said: “It was all thanks to me! I was thrilled when I realized they were going to be an item. It just made their scenes together all the better -- especially the love scenes. Let's just say it was no stretch for them!" Shia and Carey are a seriously cute couple (Bauer Griffin)
Shia and Carey, who were first linked in August last year, didn’t let their blossoming romance distract them from the task of reviving the themes first depicted in '80s Hollywood classic Wall Street
for the sequel.
Stone said: “They were completely professional on the set, but there was no mistaking what was happening. You could see their chemistry right away, and it was pretty powerful.”
The acclaimed filmmaker spoke about Shia and Carey’s relationship at a Cannes party on Friday, where the couple were reportedly inseparable as they partied with co-stars Michael Douglas
and Josh Brolin
Shia and his new girlfriend have so far kept quiet about their relationship, though the Transformers
hunk has said: “It works out. It's not like we're the premiere couple -- we're not the red carpet king and queen.”Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps
will hit theaters in September.
