SHIA LaBeouf's new girlfriend is making him eat cheese.

The 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon' star has been dating stylist Karolyn Pho for around five months and he admits she has been expanding his culinary horizons by suggesting foods he would normally never try, including more adventurous dairy delights.

He told the Los Angeles Times newspaper: "Pate? A cheese plate? That's a very 25-year-old deal. I can get down with some fig jelly and some cheese on a cracker . [Karolyn's] having me try different things. I was scared of fish, because of my upbringing, being Jewish. Gefilte can ruin your entire seafood life."

The actor has also spoken about his regret at getting involved in a fight outside the Mad Bull's Tavern in Sherman Oaks, California, in February, and he believes his preparations for the film 'The Wettest County' in the World - which focuses on Depression-era alcohol bootleggers - may have contributed to his mindset on the night.

He explained: "The guy was just being demonstrative, antagonising me in front of a crowd of 50 or 60. My mother said it was below your dignity to engage in it .

"But there's something in a 24-year-old mind where you're in front of a lot of people you respect and love and you're getting ready to ship off and go do a movie about the most violent brothers in Georgia who sell moonshine and you're sort of rooting for a certain mentality. And somebody approaches you and you're in the wrong thinking and you're drunk. I have no excuses. I'm not happy with it, but I don't think it's a calamity."
