Shia LaBeouf Blames Play Firing on Manly Tension with Alec Baldwin

by at . Comments

Well, this was awkward. And hilarious.

Shia LaBeouf stopped by The Late Show with David Letterman last night, opening up about The Orphans and how a feud with Alec Baldwin cost him a spot in that Broadway production's cast.

"Me and Alec had tension as men, not as artists, but as men," explained the young actor. "That became a hard thing to deal with. When you've got tension as men, that's tough."

Also tough? Telling this story to Letterman, an unabashed close friend of Baldwin's. Watch the exchange below:

In other late-night news, did you watch the Jay Leno-Jimmy Fallon duet? It was a rather lame.

Shia is an unusual talent. I know he's known to be a wiseass, but he still should not put up with Alec. Alec is a bastard. Shia talks too much at times but he never had problems on set. Alec has always had problems
