The National Enquirer is taking advantage of Shia LaBeouf‘s terrible reputation and concocting a story about how Shia and Brad Pitt have started fighting on the set of their World War II film Fury.
According to the Enquirer’s headline, “Brad Pitt exploded on the set of his new WWII flick Fury when co-star Shia LaBeouf… suddenly smashed Brad in the kisser with the smoking-hot barrel of a machine gun!” The Enquirer’s source reveals that when Shia and Brad were both filming in a tank, “[Shia] became a bit too intrigued by the machine guns in the tank’s turrets and started firing the guns wildly between scenes. The guns were loaded with blanks, not real bullets, but Brad was NOT happy with Shia goofing around. He tapped him on the shoulder, meaning to caution him, but Shia whipped the gun turret around and hit Brad smack in the face with the hot barrel!”
Brad then reportedly yelled at the much younger Shia, who supposedly just laughed in response. According to the Enquirer, Brad then got furious and ‘lunged‘ at Shia, and crew members supposedly had to pull the two apart to prevent Brad from tearing into Shia.
Ok, if Shia LaBeouf and Brad Pitt got into such a physical fight, you think we’d be hearing about it from the freaking Enquirer? No, it would be on the news, or some enterprising crew member would have recorded it and leaked it on Youtube, a la Christian Bale‘s rant. Also, Shia’s an idiot, can’t control his anger, and makes a lot of stupid decisions, but I think even he’s smart enough not to get into a fight with Brad Pitt, of all people. Besides, if the turret did hit Brad by accident, I don’t think he’d respond by yelling and trying to beat up Shia. This isn’t the fourth grade, it’s a film set and it’s a professional work environment.
