— Shia LaBeouf, recounting a tense conversation with Steven Spielberg to Hollywood Reporter in an interview posted Wednesday.

But he needs to hear this,” LaBeouf told the Los Angeles Times. And call Spielberg did. Looking back, the actor says, he regrets the gaffe, which allegedly strained his relationship with the summer-flick svengali. “It brought me freedom, but it also killed my spirits because this was a dude I looked up to like a sensei,”
explained LaBeouf, who says he learned his lesson.

The couple’s divorce was filed in October.
