Actor reportedly takes 'method' too far in second world war tank movie, alienating the likes of Brad Pitt and Jason Isaacs
Actor Shia LaBeouf alienated the rest of the cast of the Brad Pitt tank movie Fury according to the Mail on Sunday. An item in the paper's showbiz diary suggests that LaBeouf pulled one of his own teeth out, and failed to wash himself during the entire shoot, the better to replicate conditions of life on the frontline in the second world war.
According to the Mail on Sunday's "source", LaBeouf's behaviour proved so unpopular among cast members, which include Brad Pitt, Jason Isaacs and Logan Lerman, that he was installed in a bed and breakfast away from them. "Shia was warned about his behaviour by several people on set, including Brad Pitt and director David Ayer," the MoS confided.
LaBeouf now appears to have become one of Hollywood's premier gossip-column mainstays as reports of his eccentric behaviour multiply. The Fury item follows his attempt to limit the damage from the plagiarism accusation over his short film Howard Cantour by commissioning a skywriting apology to writer Daniel Clowes.
