Shia LaBeouf Is Still Pretentious, Alec Baldwin Still Has a Problem With It
If you're not up to speed on this story, let's just say that Shia LaBeouf and Alec Baldwin were going to be in a Broadway show together, but then Shia got fired, and now he won't stop tweeting about it. He's been tweeting personal emails between himself, Alec, and the director of the show, and a couple of weeks ago, he tweeted this gem:
You might be wondering why Shia tweeted something like that when he's never really done theater, and when he's definitely not doing theater now. And you wouldn't be alone, because Alec wondered the same thing, right to Vulture
:"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. I mean, he was never in the theater. He came into a rehearsal room for six or seven days and, uh — you know, sometimes film actors — I mean, there are people who are film actors who have a great legacy in the theater. Some of the greatest movie stars had really serious theater careers and still do. And many film actors, though, who are purely film actors, they’re kind of like celebrity chefs, you know what I mean? You hand them the ingredients, and they whip it up, and they cook it, and they put it on a plate, and they want a round of applause. In the theater, we don’t just cook the food and serve it. You go out in the garden and you plant the seeds and you grow it. You know, it’s a really very, very long, slow, deliberate — it’s the opposite of film acting. It’s a much more intensive and kind of thoughtful process. And there are people who that’s just not their thing. So for those people who I think it’s not their thing, I’m not really interested in their opinion of it. But thanks."
And then Shia - isn't this fun? - tweeted a screencap of a series of emails in which Alec wrote he was tired, Shia said he doesn't get tired because "I'm 26, chief," to which Alec replied "Listen, boy. I'm not your f--kin' chief. You got that? Ha. Hahahahaha. Let's go."
Is anyone else sad that awards season is over? Because how else are we going to be able to witness these two break out into fisticuffs? Wait, Shia will probably take pictures and Instagram them, huh?--Emily Trainham
