According to a report from the Post, the 31 West 21st Street penthouse that once played the role of Shia LaBeouf's character's apartment in Wall Street sequel Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, which was purchased in 2011 by Google executive chairman Eric Schmidt for $14.6 million, now serves exclusively as Schmidt's sex penthouse. Because of course it does. Honestly, it would have been way more weird if the Google executive chairman purchased a $15 million apartment that was used as Shia LaBeouf's apartment in the Wall Street sequel and didn't turn it into his sex penthouse. If that had happened, everybody would probably be wondering what was wrong with this guy. But he totally did (allegedly) turn it into his sex penthouse, so it's all good. Another layer of this story is that, according to a source, Schmidt "specifically said he didn't want [a doorman]. He doesn't want anyone to see him and his guests coming in and out." So that makes the whole thing just a little creepy. The apartment is also soundproofed. A rep for Schmidt did not respond to the Post's questions, probably because she was too busy partying it up in the sex penthouse.
