Shia LaBeouf recently discussed his beef with Alec Baldwin on The Late Show.
The Transformers star was on the chat program to promote the upcoming Robert Redford flick The Company You Keep. Letterman used the opportunity to discuss the actor’s feud with the former 3 Rock star.
In addition to asking Shia LaBeouf about his beef with Alec Baldwin, David Letterman also wanted to know why the young actor was “fired” from the Broadway play Orphans.
“Me and Alec had tension as men. Not as artists, but as men. In a room, that became hard to deal with,” LaBeouf explained on Monday evening’s program.
Although the two may have had their differences, the actor seemed willing to put their problems behind them.
“He’s a good dude and the show is terrific. I got nothing bad to say. I’m pretty passionate and impulsive, and he’s a very passionate individual as well and I think that impulsiveness and passion make for some fireworks,” LaBeouf said.
The problem started last month when Shia was reportedly let go from Orphans. The actor said that theater wasn’t a place for “gentlemen.” Alec Baldwin promptly followed up LaBeouf’s comments with a few thoughts of his own.
In short, Baldwin said he wasn’t interested in hearing what his former co-star had to say about the subject. He added:
“You know, it’s a really very, very long, slow, deliberate — it’s the opposite of film acting. It’s a much more intensive and kind of thoughtful process. And there are people who that’s just not their thing. So for those people who I think it’s not their thing, I’m not really interested in their opinion of it. But thanks.”
Although LaBeouf recently weighed in on the controversy during his appearance on David Letterman’s show, Baldwin has yet to address the matter since his previous statement.
