LaBeouf admits crush on Barrymore

Single star Shia LeBeouf has set his romantic sights on newly-unattached actress Drew Barrymore, after confessing the 'Charlie's Angels' beauty was his first crush.

The 'Indiana Jones' actor grew up watching Barrymore in kids' movies, and insists their 11-year age difference does not put him off pursuing a romance with the 33-year-old.

LaBeouf, 22, said: "Drew Barrymore was my first crush. As a kid, I loved her in Babes in Toyland. She's spunky. You never watched her and felt bad; you always felt better afterwards."

Barrymore is reportedly dating 'Gossip Girl' star Ed Westwick after splitting from actor boyfriend Justin Long.
