fod210Harrison Ford has spoken out against walking waxwork Shia LaBeouf for criticising Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull labelling him “a fucking idiot”.

Speaking to Details Magazine, Ford said “I think I told him he was a fucking 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.”

LaBeouf lamented last year that it was his “fault” that the fourth instalment “did not work” and added that Ford was also not “happy” about the finished product.

“I feel like I dropped the ball on the legacy that people loved and cherished. You get to monkey-swinging and things like that and you can blame it on the writer and you can blame it on Steven Spielberg, who directed. But the actor’s job is to make it come alive and make it work, and I couldn’t do it. So that’s my fault. Simple.

“[Harrison and I] 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.”

Yes, well we appreciate Shia coming clean but the truth is the unmitigated disasted that was Indie 4 probably wasn’t his fault. Yes, his character had about as much charisma as a bit of rag on a stick but then the plot was so haphazard and ill-conceived, it was never going to come off well. Still, don’t look a gift apology in the mouth – you’re never going to hear any apologies from the likes of George Lucas.

LaBeouf is currently being out-acted by giant animated CGI robots in Transformers: Dark Of The Moon.
