Harrison Ford slams Shia

Writer: Naseem Randhawa

1 Jul – Harrison Ford has branded his "Indiana Jones" co-star Shia LaBeouf an "idiot" in a recent interview for publicly slating the film during its release, according to a report by Zimbio website.

The pair worked together on 2008's "Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull", the follow-up to the adventurer's third outing in 1989.

The blockbuster was a box office hit, grossing almost US $800 million worldwide, but it received mixed reviews from critics and fans. Following its release, LaBeouf admitted he was disappointed with the movie.

Last year, LaBeouf said, "I feel like I dropped the ball on the legacy that people loved and cherished... You can blame it on the writer and you can blame it on (director) Steven (Spielberg). But the actor's job is to make it come alive and make it work, and I couldn't do it."

LaBeouf even claimed Ford agreed with him, adding, "We (Ford and LaBeouf) had major discussions. He wasn't happy with it either."

But as of recently, Ford has spoken out about the remarks, calling his co-star a "f**king idiot" for turning against the movie.

He tells Details magazine, "I think he was a f**king idiot. As an actor, I think it's my obligation to support the film without making a complete a** of myself. Shia is ambitious, attentive, and talented, and he's learning how to deal with a situation which is very unique and difficult."

Shia LaBeouf currently stars in Michael Bay's "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" now showing in Malaysia and Singapore.
