Shia LaBeouf abruptly exited his Broadway debut, “Orphans,” following apparent disagreements with his hot-tempered co-star Alec Baldwin that made them “incompatible.”
Producers announced that LaBeouf parted ways with the show after just a week of rehearsals due to “creative differences,” even though the play’s scheduled to begin previews March 19.
But last night LaBeouf, 26, posted e-mail exchanges on Twitter revealing divisions between him and bombastic Baldwin.
In a message titled “Creative Differences” LaBeouf posted an e-mail to him from director Dan Sullivan, which reads, “I’m too old for disagreeable situations. You’re one hell of a great actor. Alec is who he is. You are who you are. You two are incompatible. I should have known it. This one will haunt me. You tried to warn me. You said you were a different breed. I didn’t get it.”
LaBoeuf also displays an e-mail to Baldwin that talks about acting like a real man, adding, “A man can tell you he was wrong . . . He can apologize, even if sometimes its just to put an end to the bickering. Alec, I’m sorry for my part of a disagreeable situation.”
An e-mail from Baldwin in response reads, “I don’t have an unkind word to say about you. You have my word.”
LaBeouf’s rep declined to comment to The New York Post.
