    “You get to monkey-swinging and things like that and you can blame it on the writer and you can blame it on Steven [Spielberg, who directed]. But the actor’s job is to make it come alive and make it work, and I couldn’t do it. So that’s my fault. Simple.”

    LaBeouf said that he could have kept quiet, especially given the movie’s blockbuster status, but didn’t think the film had fooled anyone. “I think the audience is pretty intelligent. I think they know when you’ve made (slop). And I think if you don’t acknowledge it, then why do they trust you the next time you’re promoting a movie.” LaBeouf went on to say he wasn’t the only star on the film who felt that way. “We [Harrison Ford and LaBeouf] had major discussions. He wasn’t happy with it either. Look, the movie could have been updated. There was a reason it wasn’t universally accepted.”

    Asked whether this was difficult to say, given his deep relationship with Spielberg, LaBeouf continued with the directness.

    “I’ll probably get a call. But he needs to hear this. I love him. I love Steven. I have a relationship with Steven that supersedes our business work. And believe me, I talk to him often enough to know that I’m not out of line. And I would never disrespect the man. I think he’s a genius, and he’s given me my whole life. He’s done so much great work that there’s no need for him to feel vulnerable about one film. But when you drop the ball you drop the ball.”

He couldn't have fucking mentioned this to Stevie before they started filming?

I'm gonna do a round up of memorable quotes from all the press conferences here. Haven't actually been in one myself yet, queued really really for the woody allen one but still couldn't get in. I'm going to try to get into one with stephen frears and gemma arterton for a film called Tamara Drewe. It won't be as busy I don't think.

You know, after thinking about this quote, what a douche. Not that he's wrong and he certainly worked hard to sound gracious, but think about it. "Steven needs to hear this."

Well why HADN'T he heard it before, face to face, rather than at a press conference? That seems like such an asshole thing to do.

Also, how does he justify Transformers?

I reckon he probably regrets saying that now.

True. If you are going to do any old big blockbuster that comes your way, you can't really moan about the lack of quality afterwards. I can't really blame him for wanting to be a superstar but you can't have it both ways, in most cases anyway.

Yep. Good point. I mean a few folks have had savvy and the blind luck to strike it big with a series of good movies (right?), but most have a few stinkers on their resume. Shia has what ... Disturbia was pretty good. But the rest range from silly (Transformers) to idiotic (Eagle Eye) to downright retarded (Transformers 2, Indy 4).
