The 26-year-old actor stopped by the “Late Show with David Letterman” this week, and soon, the two got onto the topic of Dave’s good friend and LaBeouf’s former “Orphans” co-star Alec Baldwin.
Taking a few pages from John Mayer’s life, LaBeouf was very open and candid about his recent feud with the actor, saying that the reason he was fired from “Orphans” (his first Broadway show) was because the two had massive “tension as men”:
“Me and Alec had tension as men. Not as artists, but as men…In a room, that became a hard thing to deal with. When you’ve got tension as men, that’s tough till July, I think. It’s cool for increments, but to do that for a long period of time would have been tough.”
But the former TRANSFORMERS star didn’t stop there, talking about not being able to get tickets, and even going as far as suggesting that Alec was the one who said to get rid of him in the first place, and “creative differences” wasn’t exactly an accurate explination:
“I think that’s what you’ve got to say as a business-savvy answer for what actually happened.”
While LaBeouf finished off with a nice little “Alec, I think you’re awesome, man,” send off, check out the full interview below, and let us know if you think he is just telling story, or really has some anger and resentment built up against his former co-star.
