Shia LaBeouf, an actress, has harsh words for Oscar-winning director Olivia Wilde. Wilde told Variety in a recent interview that she had dismissed LaBeouf from her upcoming film, Don’t Worry Darling. Here, the performer expresses his own personal view. On Thursday, the actor said that he chose not to continue filming Transformers after reading Wilde’s claims. The magazine received an email from him in which he made this assertion.
The actor replied back to the director, “You and I both know the reasons for my exit.” Since your actors and I were unable to schedule any rehearsal time, I regretfully had to withdraw from your picture,” he explained. “Firing me never happened, Olivia,” Wilde pleaded with Olivia. Even while the story seems appealing to spread in light of the current social atmosphere and the social currency it carries, Page Six knows full well that it is not true.
Wilde said in her cover story that she supposedly fired LaBeouf because his method required a combative attitude and she didn’t think that was good for getting the finest performances out of him. According to her, “his process was not conducive to the ethos that I demand in my projects.” After Shia LaBeouf broke up with his girlfriend and co-star on Honey Boy, FKA Twigs, the allegations of sexual violence came to light a few months after filming wrapped.
To back up his claims, LaBeouf gave the magazine screenshots of his supposed text conversations with the Booksmart director. After the two had met to discuss his departure, Wilde reportedly sent the actor a note in which she described feeling “gutted” by his decision. She supposedly said, “Thank you for letting me in on your thoughts.” I can imagine that would be really unpleasant. You’re being honest, and that’s admirable, but it never feels nice to turn someone down.
After LaBeouf left the next day, Wilde was recorded telling him that she wasn’t “ready to give up on this yet” and the footage was leaked online. In the song video, she implied that Florence Pugh and Shia LaBeouf had a fight, leading LaBeouf to replace Pugh with Harry Styles. In the video, the director says she is “heartbroken” and that she thinks this might be a wake-up call for Miss Flo, and she asks if the subject is willing to try working with her and her team. After that, she said, “What do you think if she fully commits, if she puts all of her heart and mind into it right now, and if you two can come to an understanding — and I appreciate both of your and her points of view, but if you two can accomplish it?” Is there really any way out? Please let me know.
