Scott Eastwood recalls ‘volatile’ on-set moment with Fury costar Shia LaBeouf


Scott Eastwood recalls ‘volatile’ on-set moment with Fury costar Shia LaBeouf… that saw Brad Pitt ‘get in the middle’ to defuse situation


Scott Eastwood recalled an allegedly ‘volatile’ on-set moment with fellow actor Shia LaBeouf in a new interview with Variety.

The actor, 35, co-starred with the Honey Boy actor in the 2014 war movie Fury alongside Brad Pitt, Logan Lerman and Jon Bernthal.

The incident allegedly occurred after Eastwood spat on a war tank during a scene – an action which the LaBeouf was not aware would happen.

‘[LaBeouf] got mad at me and it turned into a volatile moment that Brad Pitt ultimately got in the middle of,’ Eastwood claimed. 

Pitt talked about the issue on-set in an interview with British GQ in 2014, and he chalked it up to an actor really connecting with a set piece. 

‘I said, in the scene with the cameras rolling, ‘You’re going to clean that sh*t up,” Pitt said. ‘Shia clocks it, and you have to understand, we’ve been through severe boot camp already, we’ve been through a lot in this tank. Shia saw it and felt he’s disrespecting our home. So Shia had the same reaction I did, and started having some words.’

However, Eastwood’s more recent comments make it seem pretty clear that the Wrath of Man actor feels LaBeouf took things too far. 

‘I never think your process as an actor should ever hinder how people are treated on set,’ he told Variety. ‘It should always enhance the production, not take away and put people in a situation where it’s a shitty work environment or you’re rude or people have to be in an uncomfortable situation.’

He continued, ‘You got to put things in perspective. This is make-believe, it’s fun, and at times it’s serious and you’re doing emotional work and you give people space to do that in, but everything has to have its parameters.’
