The three paragraphs about Shia LaBeouf, who, according to Baldwin, behaved like an insolent twat on the set of the Broadway play Orphans, are an obvious highlight.
He describes LaBeouf as a sulky, impatient little boy who “loves to argue.”
“There was friction between us from the beginning. LaBeouf seems to carry with him, to put it mildly, a jailhouse mentality wherever he goes,” Baldwin wrote. “One day he attacked me in front of everyone. He said, ‘You’re slowing me down, and you don’t know your lines. And if you don’t say your lines, I’m just going to keep saying my lines.'”
He makes it clear that only he is allowed to frighten his family, saying he hasn’t changed “but public life has.” You know, because yesterday’s newspapers were too classy to care about the antics of an aging chauvinist, but bloggers (moi) aren’t.
