Scott Eastwood: Shia is complete nightmare

Scott Eastwood has called his Fury co-star Shia LaBeouf a "complete pain in the ass".

The two actors appeared alongside each other in World War II film Fury, which followed a crew of American soldiers in a tank as they completed deadly missions.

Shia went to great lengths to get into character as Boyd 'Bible' Swan, even slashing his own face and having a tooth removed. He's also hit the headlines for his off-screen antics, including an arrest for disorderly conduct in New York City earlier this year.

Scott appeared as Sergeant Miles in Fury and found working with Shia deeply hard.

"Oh yeah. Complete pain in the ass. It's too bad, he's a great actor, but he's shi*ting his career away," he told

"We almost got into a fist fight. I was in the middle of a scene with Brad Pitt, and chewing tobacco. He wasn't even in the scene, but he got it into his acting mind that he didn't like what I was doing, so he said I couldn't be spitting tobacco on 'his' tank. He told me to clean it up. I pretty much told him to f**k off, and Brad Pitt had to break it up! It was kinda funny. But I don't get his deal. He wants to be a tough guy, I guess."

The 28-year-old star hinted this was just the tip of the iceberg when it came to his problems with Shia.

"At the end of the day, I am not the greatest actor in the world, but the reason I keep working is that I work hard and show up every day and be easy to work with," he stated.

That said, Scott - whose father is movie legend Clint Eastwood - was thrilled to win his role in Fury. Brad took on the lead role of Don 'Wardaddy' Collier and getting to team up with him was a dream come true for the up-and-coming actor. He called the cast and director David Ayer "the cream of the crop" and believes they have made a film which will stay relevant no matter the year.
