So Shia LaBeouf certainly wasn't splurging when he took his new girlfriend Mia Goth to the Olive Garden in New York's Times Square on Wednesday evening.
The 26-year-old Emmy winner been dating the 19-year-old natural beauty since November and the loved-up couple clutched hot beverages as they entered the popular restaurant.

The less-than-authentic 'Tuscan-inspired' eatery has over 750 locations worldwide and it's owned by Darden - the same conglomerate as Red Lobster.
Perhaps it was not the most sophisticated, savory option for a Hollywood movie star who reportedly earned $10 million for the third Transformers film.
Shia, sporting a shaved head and beard, protectively touched the small of his Nymphomaniac costar's back as he helped her inside.

Earlier on Wednesday, the Disturbia star continued his Twitter tirade against his former Orphans co-star Alec Baldwin.
Shia quit the Broadway show over 'creative differences' and he was angered when Baldwin compared LaBeouf to a 'celebrity chef' in a recent Vulture interview.
Using Alec's words against him, LaBeouf posted a series of email exchanges between himself, the 54-year-old 30 Rock star, and Orphans director Daniel Sullivan.

'Don't be too surprised if Alec doesn't look up from his script much for the first few days,' Sullivan wrote in an email last month.
'I suspect he's not nearly as prepared as you are. Not unusual at all when actors have a good long rehearsal time like we have. I just don't want it to throw you.'
Shia mocked the Beetlejuice funnyman's age by writing, 'I'm a hustler, I don't get tired. I'm 26, chief.'
Ben Foster replaced the temperamental actor in the role of Treat, and Orphans is still scheduled to open on April 7 at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre.
