Shia LaBeouf Leaks Alec Baldwin Emails On Twitter Read More »

After he “left” the Broadway play Orphans, Shia LaBeouf spent most of March feuding with Alec Baldwin and repeatedly calling himself a “man” even though I’m pretty sure most men don’t settle their disputes by tweeting leaked e-mails from the safety of their apartments. Anyway, Shia went on Letterman last night where he admitted Alec had him fired, yet chalked the whole thing up to manly tension between two men because have I mentioned Shia LaBeouf’s a man? Via Us Weekly:

“Me and Alec had tension as men. Not as artists, but as men,” he explained. “In a room, that became a hard thing to deal with. When you’ve got tension as men, that’s tough till July. It’s cool for increments, but to do that for a long period of time would have been tough.”
“Can I suggest a couple of scenarios,” Letterman said, “Alec went to the producers and said, ‘I can’t take it another day, fire him.’”
“I think that might have been what happened,” LaBeouf confessed.
It wasn’t over “creative differences?”
“I think that’s what you’ve got to say as a business-savvy answer for what actually happened,” LaBeouf said of the public statement.

So basically Alec Baldwin had Shia LaBeouf fired for being a douche. A statement I can safely make because if you read the emails Shia leaked to make himself look good, he still comes off a douche. In one of them, he literally complains about Alec Baldwin memorizing the script. A man doesn’t read, Alec, a man does. A man drops steaks in the dirt when no one’s looking. And sometimes when they are, but in this case, a man knows a pork chop sends the right message. A man tells you things, important things, like a shoehorn is the wife you never knew you needed and Roger Sterling was the mayor in Underdog. This is man, Alec. This is man.


  1. I’m sure he’s confused because most men will give their own farts a quick sniff.

    It’s when you start believing that your farts are magic and they smell like magic giving you a sense of authority on magic farts, that other people can’t comprehend a fart like you can, that you transcend “man” and become “le douche”

    What are the odds he got canned because he made a pass at Baldwin’s daughter?

    “Dave, there was so much man tension in particular one night, I instantly grabbed his cock and put it in my mouth to shut him up. He kicked me and hit me over the head with a camera.”

  4. “Not as artists, but as men”? He’s not an artist, either.

  5. He strikes me as one of those douche frat boy types that’s always talking about taking away someones “man card” when people do things that aren’t sanctioned by beer commercials.

  6. ChaCha

    How does he do this?? How does he make Alec Baldwin, of all people, look reasonable, mature and dignified? Getting a young actor fired from a play because you don’t like him would normally strike me as a dick move; I have no idea if that’s what happened, but it would be perfectly consistent with my impression of Alec Baldwin as a HUGE dick. And yet, here I am squarely and unquestioningly on team Baldwin, unable to think of a single scenario that would change my mind.

  7. I was thinking that Shia LaPoof is lucky that Alec Baldwin didn’t have him executed.

    BTW, did anyone ever confirm LaPoof’s claim that he banged Megan Fox? I always thought he was talking out of his ass.

    Soooo, if I interpret the lingo, Baldwin and LeBeouf are both hot headed, flaming assholes and their ‘man’ egos couldn’t stand each other so LeBeouf the got the boot. Or as Roxanne Richie said, “Girls!, Girls!, you’re both beautiful. Can I go home now?”

  9. Ren

    Working with Baldwin isn’t like working with Beans, is it, Louis? Get over yourself already.

  10. “Alec called me an ‘ungrateful little pig’and got me fired. As a man, I cried like a little girl all the way to Letterman.”

  11. Maybe he was fired because he wouldn’t take off his rocket boot.
