Shia LaBeouf 'deeply regrets' dissing Indiana Jones 4 and Spielberg

You remember when Shia "The Beef" LaBeouf said that Indy 4 was a stinky old pile? And then when Harrison "Indiana frakkin' Jones" said Shia was a moron for having done that? Yeah, those were good times. Unsurprisingly, though, Shia is finally backpedaling.

Apparently, shortly after speaking, shall we say, "ill" of Indiana Jones 4, Steven Spielberg himself had some choice words for LeBeouf.

"He told me there's a time to be a human being and have an opinion, and there's a time to sell cars. It brought me freedom, but it also killed my spirits because this was a dude I looked up to like a sensei."

The publicity error he said he "deeply regrets" may have cost Shia much chance of an ongoing Hollywood career (at least in the meantime). But that's not stopping him from moving on to independent features like Lawless and the upcoming Lars Von Trier film Nymphomaniac. LeBeouf seems relieved more than anything.

As for working with the infamous Lars "I understand Hitler ... I sympathize with him a bit" Von Trier, Shia said he took the job "because he's dangerous. He scares me. And I'm only going to work now when I'm terrified."
