In an interview on First We Feast's Hot Ones web series in which celebrities are asked probing questions while eating increasingly hot chicken wings, Shia LaBeouf alleged he once wrestled naked with Tom Hardy,. We — and, I honestly can’t stress this last part enough — would like to see it.
The Peanut Butter Falcon star, appeared in the series’ season 10 premiere in which he shot down rumors that he fought his 2012 Lawless co-star on and off set. Some of those rumors even alleged that LaBeouf once knocked Hardy out, but the actor has finally come clean.
“Yeah, it’s a bunch of bulls**t,” LaBeouf said. Although LaBeouf denied the rumors he did mention the two getting in an … interesting … “fight” offset.
"We used to wrestle all the time, and he was a big fucking person, especially then: he was getting ready for Bane," he said. "My girlfriend at the time was over at my house, we were on this balcony, we saw him and his trainer coming back from the gym, and we used to fuck with each other all of the time, but it just so happens this week my girlfriend was in town. And he runs into the room and the girl I was with at the time was terrified,” he said.
LaBeouf continued, "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... then I got upset about it, because he got the better of me, but I'm in some weird twisty naked position, my shit's over here and his shit's over here... We wound up inching over to where the stairs were and he fell down the stairs and he wound up hurting his back. So for the rest of shoot he told everybody I knocked him out, but that wasn't the case — we were having some weird cutie wrestling match."
According to LaBeouf someone named Peanut filmed the entire encounter, much to his chagrin.
LaBeouf’s latest film The Peanut Butter Falcon, directed by Tyler Nilson and Michael Schwartz, tells the story of a 22-year-old man with Down syndrome who runs away from a residential nursing home to pursue his dream of becoming a pro-wrestler. The film was released in September..
And while that’s all great, we’re wondering when the other Peanut film is going to drop.
