It turns out Shia LaBeouf’s departure from the upcoming movie, “Don’t Worry Darling” was not due to a schedule conflict, as previously reported.
In a report Variety ran on Thursday about the actor, LaBeouf was apparently fired from the psychological thriller, centered on an unhappy 1950s housewife, after displaying “poor behavior” to the cast and crew, including director Olivia Wilde.
“He is not an easy guy to work with,” a source told Variety.
The source added that LaBeouf was “off-putting” to those associated with the New Line Cinema project before production began shooting, particularly Wilde, who’s known to have a “zero a–hole policy.”
Back in September, LaBeouf was replaced by Harry Styles, according to Deadline. The singer-turned-actor will star opposite Florence Pugh as a couple who has their own dark secrets. Chris Pine will also star in the film.
The news of LaBeouf’s ousting comes on the heels of a New York Times report earlier this month that revealed LaBeouf’s ex-girlfriend, singer FKA Twigs, had filed a lawsuit against him, claiming physical and emotional abuse.
The actor told the newspaper in an email that “many of these allegations are not true,” concerning FKA Twigs and another girlfriend who detailed abusive accounts in the report. Still, he apologized.
