LaBeouf and Wilde are also embroiled in a back-and-forth of their own, with LaBeouf releasing private emails, videos, and texts between him and Wilde to counter her claims that she fired him from the movie to “protect the cast” from his “combative energy.”
LaBeouf then told Variety that he quit because the actors were not given enough rehearsal time.
“You and I both know the reasons for my exit,” LaBeouf wrote to Wilde in an email he shared with Variety. “I quit your film because your actors and I couldn’t find time to rehearse.”
LaBeouf also shared a video with Variety that Wilde allegedly sent him in 2020, in which she appears to refer to tensions between LaBeouf and Pugh and suggests that the two stars should “make peace” with each other.
In the purported video, which was shared online, Wilde says, “I think this might be a bit of a wake-up call for Miss Flo,” referring to Pugh. “If she really commits, if she really puts her mind and heart into it at this point and if you guys can make peace,” Wilde says in the video.
