Alec Baldwin Trashes Shia LaBeouf, Says He's Leaving Public Life

Posted: February 24th, 2014 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Alec Baldwin Trashes Shia LaBeouf, Says HeSubmit Comment
In a new essay published on New York Mag's blog, Alec Baldwin attempts to explain that he never wanted to work with MSNBC, which hired the actor to host a talk-show, only to fire him shortly after for terrible ratings and unleashing a homophobic rant.

He goes on to insult another MSNBC host, Rachel Maddow, calling her "a phony who doesn’t have the same passion for the truth off-camera that she seems to have on the air." Maddow responded on Twitter, stating that she had never met Baldwin.

The actor also brought up his relationship with Shia LaBeouf, his co-star in a Broadway production of Lyle Kessler's "Orphans." Baldwin says that he and LaBeouf didn't get along from the start.

"LaBeouf seems to carry with him, to put it mildly, a jailhouse mentality wherever he goes," he explained. "You could tell right away he loves to argue. And one day he attacked me in front of everyone. He said, 'You're slowing me down, and you don't know your lines. And if you don't say your lines, I'm just going to keep saying my lines.'"

The entire thing resulted in Baldwin telling the producers that he was planning to quit, but the producers chose to fire LaBeouf instead. "I think he was shocked," explained Baldwin. "He had that card, that card you get when you make films that make a lot of money that gives you a certain kind of entitlement. I think he was surprised that it didn't work in the theater."

Baldwin also commented on LaBeouf's bizarre behavior, including wearing a paper bag over his head that read "I am not famous anymore" during the premiere of "Nymphomaniac." "There was truly a part of me that felt sorry for him, oddly enough," said the actor.

But just like LaBeouf, Baldwin revealed that he too is done with public life.

Pair him up with Mel Gibson and we have ourselves a dynamic combo.

Mel Gibson has a temper but at least he's very, very talented while Baldwin has a constant chip on his shoulder with much less talent.

Sad news if you're a fan of great 80s comedies. Harold Ramis just died. RIP Egon

"telling the producers that he was planning to quit"

Your grammatical syntax compels me to strangle newborn kittens.
