Actor Shia LaBeouf must be hitting the truth serum again. The 23-year-old actor told The Los Angeles Times that he thinks Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull sucked donkey balls … and that star Harrison Ford agrees with him.
I think the audience is pretty intelligent. I think they know when you’ve made shit. And I think if you don’t acknowledge it, then why do they trust you the next time you’re promoting a movie.
He [Harrison Ford] wasn’t happy with it either. Look, the movie could have been updated. There was a reason it wasn’t universally accepted.
LaBeouf, who owes his career to director/producer Steven Spielberg, goes on to say that he’s not scared to piss off the Hollywood giant, adding that Spielberg needs to eat shit (I’m paraphrasing).
I’ll probably get a call. But he needs to hear this. I love him. I love Steven. I have a relationship with Steven that supersedes our business work. And believe me, I talk to him often enough to know that I’m not out of line. And I would never disrespect the man.
I think he’s a genius, and he’s given me my whole life. He’s done so much great work that there’s no need for him to feel vulnerable about one film. But when you drop the ball you drop the ball.
Last month, LaBeouf poo-pooed all over Michael Bay’s Transformers 2 (also produced by Spielberg), stating that he felt the film had “missed the mark.” That said, LaBeouf had no problem signing on to star in Bay’s upcoming Transformers 3.
You know who else talked crap about Spielberg? The kid from E.T. I get a feeling LaBeouf is about to have his career Henry Thomas-ed if he keeps talking crazy.
No comment from Spielberg or Ford on LaBeouf’s comments. The duo, however, are reportedly developing a fifth Indiana Jones film.
