You can always count on Shia LaBeouf for some candor, and the actor continues to bring it in a new Hollywood Reporter interview, where he complains, "[Studios] give you the money, then get on a plane and come to the set and stick a finger up your ass and chase you around for five months." Still, there's one thing LaBeouf regrets speaking his mind about: his Indiana Jones dis, which ruptured his friendship with Steven Spielberg. "He told me there's a time to be a human being and have an opinion, and there's a time to sell cars," remembers LaBeouf. "It brought me freedom, but it also killed my spirits because this was a dude I looked up to like a sensei."
