I think Alec Baldwin had me fired': Shia LaBeouf on the tense feud that lead to his Broadway exit


Shia LaBeouf thinks Alec Baldwin may have got him fired from Orphans.
The Transformers actor exited the Broadway play due to 'creative differences' weeks before it was due to open, and after admitting he and his would-be co-star didn't connect as 'men'.
He acknowledged the 30 Rock star could have been instrumental in his departure from the production.

He told TV talk show host David Letterman: 'I'm pretty passionate and impulsive, and he's a very passionate individual as well. And I think that impulsiveness and that passion makes for, ya know, some fireworks.
'Me and Alec had tension as men. Not as artists but as men.'
The host then suggested: 'Alec went to the producers and said, "I can't take it another day. Fire him,"' prompting his guest to reply: 'I think that might've been what happened.'
Despite the tensions between them, Shia - who was seated on the front row for the first night of Orphans - went on to praise Alec as 'awesome'.

Alec recently suggested the Lawless star isn't a true theatre actor and wouldn't have coped with the demands of a stage production.
Referring to one of Shia's tweets which read 'The theatre belongs not to the great but to the brash', Alec said: 'I can tell you that, in all honesty, I don't think he's in a good position to be giving interpretations of what the theatre is and what the theatre isn't.
'I mean, he was never in the theatre. He came into a rehearsal room for six or seven days.
'There are people who are film actors who have a great legacy in the theatre. Some of the greatest movie stars had really serious theatre careers and still do. And many film actors, though, who are purely film actors, they're kind of like celebrity chefs, you know what I mean? You hand them the ingredients, and they whip it up, and they cook it, and they put it on a plate, and they want a round of applause.'
Shia is currently wearing an brace after suffering an injury to his left foot in a rumoured kickboxing incident.

Miss Piggy taunts hurt my feelings': Real Housewives

Vicki Gunvalson has spoken out about how cruel taunts led her to get a plastic surgery makeover which included nose job and a chin implant.
The 51-year-old debuted her new 'settled in' face on Watch What Happens Live on Monday night.
The reality star's surgery was featured on the season premiere of Real Housewives of Orange County earlier in the evening, it was filmed just a few weeks after she went under the knife and swelling had hidden the final results.

On the live show last night, she hid behind a cardboard curtain while being introduced by Andy Cohen and then unveiled her final new look.
While the surgery was extensive, the star said she hoped the results were not too extreme.
'Hopefully it doesn't look any different, I didn't even tell my mother until she found out tonight,' she said.

The mother of two said she left it up to doctors to decide what exactly she got done.
'I had fat from my sides put into my face,' the Bravo personality revealed.
'And then they put in an implant (in my chin) because I guess when you do the nose they needed to do the chin.
'I just kind of closed my eyes and said "Just do what you think is going to look good" and they did it.'

For seven seasons of the original Housewives franchise, Vicki's facial features - particularly and earlier nose job - had drawn snide comments from fans and other stars of the show.
Last season Gretchen Rossi's fiance Slade Smiley branded her 'Miss Piggy'.
Vicki insisted Slade's comment were not the only reason she went under the knife. (She said 'Gretchen would kill me' if she blamed Slade).

'I didn't do it because of Slade,' Vicki told Andy.
'At the end of the day it hurt my feelings but there were a lot of people who said my nose was turned up and I look like Miss Piggy and it made me self conscious so I saw a doctor.'
Viki was also shown a video of her co-stars Gretchen and Tamra Barney mocking her surgery.
Clearly upset by their reaction Vicki said she expected nasty comments.
'It is hurtful but I know I shouldn't have been on camera straight away I was only out of surgery one or two weeks but what was I going to do? Hide?'
The Real Housewives of Orange County airs Monday nights on Bravo.

Nick popped the question to Sofia last year and the actress is still overwhelmed by the engagement ring he presented to her.
She added: 'I love it, because it's big enough. If it had been bigger, I couldn't have worn it every day. And if it had been smaller, I wouldn't have liked it. It's heavy, but I don't take it off even to work out.'

Katy Perry jets out of town in tie-dye rock chick ensemble.

He's been famously outspoken when it comes to his previous relationships.
And seeing her ex-boyfriend John Mayer appear on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Monday night seemed to be enough to drive Katy Perry out of town altogether.
The 28-year-old singer was spotted arriving at Los Angeles LAX Airport alongside her older sister, Angela, as she prepared to jet off for the evening.

A far cry from her usual chirpy expression, Katy - who parted ways with the 35-year-old musician for a second time late last month - looked a little glum as she prepared to fly off.

But the starlet didn't need to be worried as it would appear Mr Mayer has well and truly learned to keep his mouth shut when it comes to his girlfriends and matters of the heart.
Appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Monday night, the singer-songwriter spoke about the couple's ill-fated romance for the first time, admitting he struggles to find love and keep it.
 
'I’m on the same journey as everyone else. Coupling is a tricky thing,' John revealed in a segment on that airs on Tuesday.

The chat show host got John to open up by beginning with: 'The last time I saw you. You were at the Grammy’s. You were sitting on the same row as Portia and I with Katy. And, I know Katy she is a good friend as well and I know that since then you’re not together any more.'
'Correct,' replied John, who was looking relaxed in cowboy hat, jeans, checkered shirt and black blazer as he promoted his new album Born and Raised.
'And, I just want to say I love you and my thoughts are with you. It’s nobody's business but…,' Ellen continued.

The musician broke in by saying, 'Thank you. Listen, it was a very private relationship going in. It was a private relationship during and it’s a private relationship, still.
'I can understand asking the question based on some previous answers I have given but I have finally learned how to put the wall between one thing and the other. I’ve been much happier since then.'
Ellen further added: 'It is hard and you’re both in the business and you’re both working all the time. I just want you to be happy. That’s all.'
'I want everyone to be happy,' John responded. 'And you’re happy.'  
'I’m happy,' Ellen echoed.

Since the break-up John has been occupying himself with his music - and improving his health.
'We were talking about health and what contributes to what happened with you,' Ellen said. 'You said, it was acid reflux?'
'Yeah, that’s half of it,' John conceded. 'Half of it is over use and singing and singing and singing. The other stuff is you know, what you put into your body. And, I’m getting to that age now your body doesn’t just shake everything off and it didn’t help that I really loved, love, loved scotch.
'It’s just like applying poison to your body. It’s like applying a shellac of poison. It’s just delicious, wonderful poison that makes you not care how late you’re out till or where you’re going.
'But I had to really say I like signing and writing more than I like delicious scotch so I had to really dial it down. And, I’m a little more boring now.'
Hot and cold: John and Katy started dating last summer, but she apparently couldn't foresee a long-term relationship and broke it offHot and cold: John and Katy started dating last summer, but she apparently couldn't foresee a long-term relationship and broke it off
Katy reportedly called it quits with the musician last month when she realised the couple had no long-term future together.
But a friend of the singer claimed the split is just them taking some time out to work out what they want from each other.
A source told HollywoodLife.com: 'It's more of a break than a break-up. You'll probably see them hanging out sooner then later and hooking up again. They remain very friendly. She's leaving the window open. They have both been so focused on work.'
Katy was previously married to British comedian Russell Brand, while Mayer has enjoyed high-profile relationships with the likes of Jennifer Aniston, Jessica Simpson and Taylor Swift in the past.
