Shia LaBeouf got a final word on the matter his final interview after “Don’t Worry Darling” director Olivia Wilde claimed that she dismissed the actor in order to protect the star character Florence Pugh.
“It is what it is,” LaBeouf said to The Hollywood Reporter. “Every blessing to her and her film.”
Wilde 38, who played the role, repeatedly stated that she had decided to dismiss the actor, who was 36 years old according to an interview in Vanity Fair published on Thursday in which she cited his conduct on set as well as her obligation to Pugh 26as reasons why she let the actor let him go. The comments come a few just a few weeks after LaBeouf revealed that he had quit the film of his own accord due to disagreements about Wilde’s direction.
“My responsibility was towards [Florence],” Wilde stated to Vanity Fair. “I’m like an animal mother. The call was a challenge but in a way, he could understand. I doubt it would have been something he would have enjoyed. He approaches his work with a passion that is sometimes violent.”
“It wasn’t the ethos that I demand in my productions,” she said. “I want him to get well and to evolve because I think it’s a great loss to the film industry when someone that talented is unable to work.”
LaBeouf is a celebrity with an poor image in Hollywood because he is currently being accused of emotional and sexual assault by his ex-girlfriend who is his ex-girlfriend, British singer FKA Twigs.
The child actor has denied claims that of being fired from the film, saying the reason he quit was a insufficient rehearsal time with his co-stars. He described it as “attractive clickbait” in documents, emails and video messages exchanged between Wilde and Wilde to show his point.
“Firing me never took place, Olivia,” an email he wrote his director. “And although I understand the appeal of promoting that story in light of the current state of affairs and the social currency it is associated with it. This isn’t the truth.” LaBeouf also posted the video of a message that was apparently written by Wilde In it, she seems to be trying to convince Wilde to return to shoot.
“This issue is so much more nuanced than can be explained in private texts released out of context,” Wilde replied when asked about the leaks of exchanges published by the magazine. “All I can say is that he was replaced which meant there wasn’t way to go forward without his replacement. I wish him the very best for his healing.”
LaBeouf was substituted in the role of Harry Styles in the famous film in the month of December, 2020 in the wake of his “Booksmart” director calling reports of tension between her and Pugh as “baseless rumors.”
