Harrison Ford Says What We're All Thinking, Calls LaBeouf A "Fucking Idiot"



It appears that Shia LaBeouf has a mouth that can't be stopped. Just a few weeks after the actor dumped on his former co-star Megan Fox, claiming her unforgivable "Spice Girl strength" and her inability to handle Michael Bay's meticulous directions on where to point her ass got her fired from this weekend's "Transformers: Dark of the Moon." Now, a new Details magazine feature on the actor finds him using the opportunity to throw Fox under the bus yet again, albeit this time in a wholly different way.

Asked by the magazine if he hooked up with Fox he nodded yes, that he did. "Look, you're on the set for six months, with someone who's rooting to be attracted to you, and you're rooting to be attracted to them," he explains to Details. "I never understood the separation of work and life in that situation. But the time I spent with Megan was our own thing, and I think you can see the chemistry onscreen." Pressed as to the status of Fox's relationship at the time with her boyfriend and now husband, Brian Austin Green, LaBeouf replies uneasily, "I don't know, man. I don't know. I don't know. I don't know...It was what it was."

Now, there are two ways to look at this. Details is clearly looking for juice with their follow-up question, but LaBeouf could have easily steered the conversation somewhere else, respecting that Fox is now married to Green and being a bit more mature about kissing and telling. But that's clearly not his forte and he has no filter about his past relationships.

"It was sort of disastrous. Neither one of us, I think, were in love. Just sort of experimenting or whatever," LaBeouf says in the same profile about his fling with Adrien Grenier's girlfriend, Isabel Lucas, during the shoot of 'Revenge of the Fallen.' He also describes a dinner with Hilary Duff as "probably the worst date either of us has ever had." We're kind of surprised he hasn't dished on his former relationship with Carey Mulligan yet.

And it's not just girls, but LaBeouf has been very candid when the movies he's been in haven't lived up to his lofty expectations, trashing 'Revenge of the Fallen,' 'Kingdom of the Crystal Skull' and even "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps," telling the magazine that the Oliver Stone film was too soft. "He's trying to play nice. But for a movie like 'Wall Street' that had so much bite the first time around to come out without fangs and preach a message of hope wasn't what people were looking for."

But while the young LaBeouf is probably still finding out how to carry himself in Hollywood, Harrison Ford reveals he tried to set the actor right after his 'Crystal Skull' comments. "I think I told him he was a fucking idiot," Ford says. "As an actor, I think it's my obligation to support the film without making a complete ass of myself. Shia is ambitious, attentive, and talented—and he's learning how to deal with a situation which is very unique and difficult."

And LaBeouf is continuing to take his bring-it-on attitude to his new movies. He apparently got into a dust up with Tom Hardy on the set of "The Wettest County in the World" and John Hillcoat says of the actor, "He will say what he feels, almost too much so. He wears his heart on his sleeve, and it can sometimes blow back. But it's the same thing that also lets him access the truth of his emotions."

That "truth of his emotions" also makes him totally blind to the ramifications his words have. For an actor who is looking to break out of tentpole land, a little humility will go a long, long way but he hasn't found it yet. LaBeouf claims that though movies like "The Bourne Legacy," "Rise of the Planet of the Apes," "127 Hours" and "The Social Network" came his way, they didn't meet the high standard of quality he aspires to. "I'm looking for Warren Beatty—type game changers," says the "Eagle Eye" and "Disturbia" actor.

You can see LaBeouf's Beatty-like performance in the game-changing "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" when it opens tomorrow.
