Shia LaBeouf Was Fired From ‘Don’t Worry Darling’ Due to Olivia Wilde’s ‘Zero A–Hole Policy’ (Report)
When Shia LaBeouf left the film "Don't Worry Darling" in September, it was reported that planning conflicts were to blame. According to Variety, however, he was fired by director Olivia Wilde for violating her "zero-hole policy".
"Although filming hadn't started when LaBeouf left, insiders close to the project said LaBeouf had behaved badly and his style clashed with the cast and crew, including Wilde, who ultimately fired him," Variety reported on Thursday.
The film, which landed on New Line after a bidding war in Hollywood, was seen as another step in a career renaissance for LaBeouf, based on his well-received autobiographical film "Honey Boy" and the indie drama "The Peanut Butter Falcon" emerged. "After a string of" legal troubles and a bizarre timeline of erratic behavior, "reported Variety, landing the role in Wilde's film was viewed as a" professional victory "for LaBeouf.
New Line and LaBeouf representatives did not immediately respond to TheWrap.
The report comes after LaBeouf was charged by the musician and ex-girlfriend FKA Twigs of assault, sexual violence and cultivating an abusive relationship in a lawsuit filed in Los Angeles and in an interview with the New York Times earlier this month.
In the lawsuit, LaBeouf was accused of "relentless abuse" and of causing emotional distress to FKA Twigs, whose real name is Tahliah Debrett Barnett, and knowingly inflicting a sexually transmitted disease on her while they were in a relationship between 2018 and 2018.

Both the lawsuit and Barnett described an incident in an interview with The Times when LaBeouf sped down the highway while driving through the desert, took off his seat belt and threatened to crash the car unless she confessed her love to him. Barnett then described how LaBeouf pulled up to a gas station and attacked her, throwing her into the car and screaming in her face before forcing her back into the vehicle.
LaBeouf responded to Barnett's allegations and those of another ex-girlfriend, Karolyn Pho, in a statement to the Times.
"I am unable to tell anyone how my behavior made them feel," he said in an email to the New York Times. “I have no excuses for my alcoholism or aggression, just rationalizations. I have abused myself and everyone around me for years. I have hurt the people closest to me in the past. I am ashamed of this story and I apologize to those I have hurt. I can't really say anything else. "
LaBeouf went on to say that "many of these allegations are not true," but added that he owed Barnett and Pho "the opportunity to share what they said publicly and take responsibility for the things I did".
“I am not cured of my PTSD or alcoholism,” LaBeouf wrote, “but I am determined to do what I must to recover and I will become the people I may have harmed along the way to be sorry forever. "
