In a new interview for Details Magazine, Harrison Ford admits that his young Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull costar was a little too flippant when it came to criticizing the film. Back in the day, Shia LaBeouf held no qualms in attributing the flick's meager reception with Steven Spielberg "dropping the ball" with the movie's plot. Being of the old school, Harrison didn't find it very professional that Shia would trash the movie and his director like that and he let the world know it. He explained:
"I think I told him he was a f**king idiot. As an actor, I think it's my obligation to support the film without making a complete ass of myself. Shia is ambitious, attentive, and talented - and he's learning how to deal with a situation which is very unique and difficult."
We'll say! Still, we don't think you need to worry about his big mouth again, Harrison. He's already seen how that can get an actor kicked right out of franchise as well as how it can stir up some much needed publicity!
He's learning the game alright. Just give him a little more time to fine tune his strategies.
