Harrison Ford has labeled his Indiana Jones co-star Shia LaBeouf an “idiot” for publicly bashing their movie.
The pair worked together on 2008′s Indiana Jones, and while it was a blockbuster hit that earned $800 million, it was panned by critics.
After the movie was released, LaBeouf admitted he was disappointed with the film, saying he had “dropped the ball”.
Last year, he said, “I feel like I dropped the ball on the legacy that people loved and cherished… You can blame it on the writer and you can blame it on (director) Steven (Spielberg). But the actor’s job is to make it come alive and make it work, and I couldn’t do it…”
And LaBeouf even claimed Ford agreed with him, adding, “We (Ford and LaBeouf) had major discussions. He wasn’t happy with it either.”
But now Ford has spoken out about the remarks, calling his co-star a “f**king idiot” for turning against the movie.
He tells Details magazine, “I think he was a f**king idiot. As an actor, I think it’s my obligation to support the film without making a complete a** of myself. Shia is ambitious, attentive, and talented – and he’s learning how to deal with a situation which is very unique and difficult.”
I don’t know if I necessarily agree with Harrison here. Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull DID SUCK. Shia was the only one who actually admitted it!
What do you think? Should Shia have kept his mouth shut?
