Olivia Wilde Fired Shia LaBeouf From 'Don't Worry Darling'

New details are coming to light regarding Shia LaBeouf‘s exit from Don’t Worry Darling.

Shia was supposed to star in the upcoming movie, which Olivia is directing and starring in. Back in September, it was announced that he dropped out because of a scheduling conflict and he was replaced by Harry Styles. However, that apparently was not the full story, via Variety on Thursday (December 24).

Variety has learned LaBeouf was dropped from the film. Though shooting had not started yet when LaBeouf departed, insiders close to the project say LaBeouf displayed poor behavior and his style clashed with the cast and crew, including Wilde, who ultimately fired him. Wilde didn’t respond to requests for comment for this story. LaBeouf’s publicist declined to comment. A representative from New Line also declined to comment on the matter,” the outlet reported.

“He is not an easy guy to work with,” a source told the outlet, adding that he was “off-putting” to those associated with the project, particularly Olivia, who is known to build collaborative sets with a “zero a–hole policy.”

Olivia Wilde also spoke out in support of FKA twigs, who came forward with allegations against Shia of sexual and emotional abuse.
