Shia LaBeouf turned up the heat on the latest episode of “Hot Ones”.
The actor, who was promoting two of his films, “Peanut Butter Falcon” and “Honey Boy”, got candid about the projects while looking back at some of his favourite films to work on. One of those was 2012’s “Lawless” with Tom Hardy.
Around the time the flick came out, LaBeouf made headlines for allegedly knocking out Hardy. But on the new episode of “Hot Ones”, the 33-year-old star explained the real story, which hilariously involved no clothes.
“Yeah, it’s a bunch of bulls**t,” he told “Hot Ones” host Sean Evans. “We used to wrestle all the time and he’s a big f**king person, especially then. He was getting ready [to play] Bane.”
“My girlfriend at the time was over at my house, we were on this balcony,” he continued. “We saw him and his trainer coming back from the gym. We used to f**k with each other all the time, but it just so happened that, this one week, my girlfriend was in town and he runs into the room. The girl I was with at the time was terrified. She covered up and she ran into the kitchen and he picked me up and I didn’t have nothing on so now I’m naked on his shoulder. We’re in the hallway, we’re wrestling around.”
And after wrestling around for a bit, Hardy accidentally took a tumble down the stairs.
“For the rest of the shoot, he told everybody I knocked him out,” LaBeouf said.
“Honey Boy” premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this month.
