It was the method acting people!

Troubled actor Shia LaBeouf blames method acting for getting fired from a Broadway play (he clashed with Alec Baldwin on the set of Orphans) and arrested while attending a performance of Cabaret (he smacked actor Alan Cumming’s butt).

In the November issues of Interview Magazine LaBeouf claims that he was simply role-playing. The part of an asshole I’m guessing.

“Alec and I butted heads hard. I was sleeping in the park . . . At the time, I was out of my mind,” he revealed about preparing for the brutal, street-smart character, Treat.

“My whole goal was to intimidate the fuck out of Baldwin. That was the role. And it wasn’t going to be fake. I wanted him to be scared . . . So I went about doing that for three weeks of rehearsal,” he said.

Well it worked!

The 28-year-old actor was arrested in June after drunkenly slapping Cumming and later spitting at a cop.

“I was reading about performance art of the ’60s and ’70s and so I thought . . . we’re all involved here. It’s not just your stage. We’re all in here and we’re all part of this,” he said. “I was wrong.”

Ya think?
