Alan Cumming on Shia LaBeouf’s Cabaret Meltdown

By

Tonight on Conan, Alan Cumming gave his account of the now-famous incident wherein Shia LaBeouf was arrested for being disruptive during a performance of Cumming’s Cabaret. LaBeouf gave his own account of the whiskey-fueled debacle on Kimmel earlier this month, and Cumming adds, "I think he was really messed up, obviously … he was just wasted, and he was wasted from the second he walked into the thing." Still, Cumming was very gracious and forgiving about the whole thing, explaining that LaBeouf's justification for slapping him was that he was "the sexiest man he'd ever seen." There's no real good excuse for drunk-slapping someone in the midst of a live Broadway show, but we guess that's as good a reason as any?
