Shia LaBeouf and Alec Baldwin aren’t exactly on the best of terms lately. So, it probably didn’t help when the Transformers actor posted his private exchange about their beef on Twitter.
In the newest celebrity feud to sweep across news outlets, the actors apparently had a tiff while collaborating on the Broadway production of “Orphans.”
Producers announced that LaBeouf was no longer on-board for the production, citing “creative differences.” Their press release to the New York Times reads:
“Due to creative differences, the producers of ‘Orphans’ and Shia LaBeouf will be parting ways and he will not be continuing with the production … An announcement on the replacement for the role of ‘Treat’ will be made shortly.”
Well, Shia apparently wasn't too happy with that interpretation of what went down. He took to Twitter, posting emails that documented the ongoing difficulties of working with Baldwin.
In a message titled “Creative Differences,” the show’s director Dan Sullivan writes:
“I’m too old for disagreeable situations. You’re one hell of a great actor. Alec is who he is. You are who you are. You two are incompatible. I should have known it. This one will haunt me. You tried to warn me. You said you were a different breed. I didn’t get it.”
In another email Shia writes to his co-stars about what a real man is:
“A man does not know everything. He doesn't try. He likes what other men know. ... He can apologize, even if sometimes it’s just to put an end to the bickering. Alec, I'm sorry for my part of a dis-agreeable situation.”
A later email signed “AB”—in what is presumably from Alec Baldwin—reads: “I don’t have an unkind word to say about you. You have my word.”
