Shia LaBeouf(?): “Indy 4 was a stinkbomb”

Shia LaBeouf was brutally honest about Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull while promoting the new Wall Street sequel:

“I think the audience is pretty intelligent. I think they know when you’ve made … . And I think if you don’t acknowledge it, then why do they trust you the next time you’re promoting a movie. … We [Harrison Ford and LaBeouf] had major discussions. He wasn’t happy with it either. Look, the movie could have been updated. There was a reason it wasn’t universally accepted.”… Asked whether this was difficult to say, given his deep relationship with Spielberg, LaBeouf continued with the directness.  “I’ll probably get a call. But he needs to hear this. I love him. I love Steven. I have a relationship with Steven that supersedes our business work. And believe me, I talk to him often enough to know that I’m not out of line. And I would never disrespect the man. I think he’s a genius, and he’s given me my whole life. He’s done so much great work that there’s no need for him to feel vulnerable about one film. But when you drop the ball you drop the ball.”

As with George Clooney and “Batman and Robin”, Shia goes overboard in taking on a lot of blame that really belongs with the director/producers/writers.  It’s not his fault that he was told to swing from vines like Tarzan.

Christian Toto says: Time to stop the Shia hate.
