Shia LaBeouf knocks Baldwin as their Twitter feud heats up. According to Yahoo News on March 5, LaBeouf knocked his former "Orphans" co-star Alec Baldwin, responding to some of Baldwin's recent criticisms of him.
This all started when Shia LaBeouf quit the Broadway show "Orphans" shortly before it was set to begin. LaBeouf called it "creative differences," and at the time Baldwin said that LaBeouf was a great actor and he had nothing bad to say about him. That changed rather quickly.
Baldwin came out and said that maybe LaBeouf was not made for theater. He then made the slicing comment that LaBeouf is like someone who wants the applause but doesn't want to work for it. Baldwin said great movie stars have had great theatrical careers, but LaBeouf is probably just a "pure film actor."
LaBeouf responded by posting a letter from the director that praised Shia for being "more prepared" than Alec Baldwin ever is. After that Shia LaBeouf knocks Baldwin for his age. Baldwin tweeted that he was tired and LaBeouf responded that he doesn’t get tired because he's only 26 and then called Baldwin "chief."
Baldwin responded that he isn't a "fu***n" chief.
Ben Foster replaces Shia LaBeouf in "Orphans" but don’t think this feud between LaBeouf and Baldwin is over with yet. Baldwin chimed in again.
"I can tell you that, in all honesty, I don't think he's in a good position to be giving interpretations of what the theater is and what the theater isn't," Baldwin said. "I mean, he was never in the theater. He came into a rehearsal room for six or seven days."
