Celebrity feud #459,034 is in high gear!
Alec Baldwin has been plenty unhappy with his former Orphans costar Shia LaBeouf since he released some private emails hinting at creative differences, and time is most certainly not healing this wound.
“The theater belongs not to the great but to the brash.”
So, what did Alec think about this little comment? You better believe he didn’t hold back one ounce!
“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.”
Shia just got serrrrrrrrrrrved!
Considering how outspoken Shia has been lately, we wouldn't be surprised if he takes the bait and responds.
This feud might just be starting up!
