Who is Margaret Qualley dating? The actress was spotted kissing Love Me Like You Hate Me co-star Shia LaBeouf, who just last week made the news due to allegations of abusive behaviour from ex-girlfriend FKA Twigs.

Who is Margaret Qualley?

Actress Margaret Qualley is the daughter of 1990s screen darling Andie McDowell, best-known for her roles in Groundhog Day and Four Weddings and A Funeral.

Qualley was born on 23 October 1994 in Kalispell, Montana. She is following in her mother’s footsteps and works as an actress and model.

At 16, she earned an apprenticeship at the American Ballet Theatre in New York, but disliked the emphasis on perfection and body image inherent to the world of ballet. She learnt the craft of acting from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London, spending a summer studying Shakespeare.

Qualley has had some high profile acting roles in the past few years. These include Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, Fosse/Verdon, and The Leftovers. She has also worked on smaller projects such as Strange But True and political drama Seberg, where she starred alongside Kristen Stewart.

Speculation first began about Margaret Qualley dating actor Shia LaBoeuf when the two appeared in a short film entitled Love Me Like You Hate Me, directed by the actress’s older sister, Rainey Qualley. Margaret and Shia play a couple who have an emotionally intense relationship and bare it all for some pretty explicit scenes in the short film, available to watch on Vimeo.

The rumours of Qualley dating Shia LaBoeuf intensified after photos surfaced of them together. The couple had a make out session on Saturday after Qualley had landed in LA airport.

Qualley’s previous relationships have included SNL’s Pete Davidson, Nat Wolf and there were rumours of a relationship between her and Cara Delevingne.

In response to the recent allegations against him coming from ex-partners, LaBeouf has recently told various news outlets that he is currently sober and has enrolled in a 12-step program.
