LaBeouf appears as a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote his latest film, Fury. He also tells an elaborate story of how he chased a homeless man, got drunk on whiskey, and got arrested at a cabaret in New York City.
So I land in New York coming back from Ireland, where I’m visiting my girl. In Ireland you drink whiskey, so I’d been drinking a lot of whiskey.
LeBeouf opens up about his recent rants, jail time and strange behavior.
I went through an existential crisis which turned into some kind of exploration. I had some hiccups some judgement error.
In a statement to Joe Hagan, Baldwin reveals the reason behind LaBeouf’s hasty exit from Orphans. The actor corroborates that the two had “creative differences,” but goes on to say that the younger actor was ultimately fired. Baldwin says he knew one of them had to go and even volunteered to leave the play rather than LaBeouf.
I said, ‘I’ll tell you what, I’ll go.’ I said don’t fire the kid, I’ll quit. They said no, no, no, no, and they fired him. And I think he was shocked.
Star Magazine claims LaBeouf wants a $3 million raise from the $15 million he made with Transformers: Dark of the Moon. The tabloid’s source adds that the actor’s trash-talking about the movie might have also lost him the claim.
LaBeouf tells MTV that the third installment of the Transformers series will be the end for his character Sam Witwicky. The actor says he doesn’t believe there is anywhere to take the character in the franchise. LaBeouf believes that he has learned a lot working with Michael Bay and is willing to work in the director’s future films.
Transformers: Dark of the Moon may or may not be the end of the “Transformers” franchise on the big-screen — I’m betting on “may not,” for what it’s worth — but it’s definitely the end for Sam Witwicky.
