Shia LaBeouf unwinds on holiday after Don't Worry Darling drama

Shia LaBeouf was anything but worried as he soaked up the sun during a family getaway, far away from the Don’t Worry Darling drama.

The Transformers actor, 36, was seen enjoying some downtime with his wife Mia Goth and their five-month-old daughter Isabel in Portofino, Italy.

Shia showed off his impressive tattoo collection as he splashed around in the sea with actress Mia, as baby Isabel was placed in a yellow inflatable.

The Holes star even took unbothered to a new level after being pictured floating in the sea.

The last few weeks have been somewhat of a whirlwind for Shia after he found himself caught in the ongoing Don’t Worry Darling debacle.

During a recent interview, director Olivia Wilde claimed she fired Shia from the psychological thriller before casting current boyfriend Harry Styles in the role alongside Florence Pugh.

Insisting she was ‘such an admirer of his work,’ Olivia expressed ‘his process was not conducive to the ethos that I demand in my productions.

‘He has a process that, in some ways, seems to require a combative energy, and I don’t personally believe that is conducive to the best performances,’ she added to Variety.

‘I believe that creating a safe, trusting environment is the best way to get people to do their best work. Ultimately, my responsibility is to the production and to the cast to protect them. That was my job.’

Shia later denied he had been fired, insisting he quit the film and publicly asked Olivia to correct the narrative.

According to Variety, the Fury actor got in touch in the days after their interview with Wilde was published, and forwarded them an email he had sent to the director where he said he was ‘confused by the narrative that I was fired.’

‘You and I both know the reasons for my exit,’ he said. ‘I quit your film because your actors & I couldn’t find time to rehearse.’

Attached to the email were screenshots of texts allegedly sent between Shia and Olivia in 2020, in which he said he would have to back out of production and, after an in-person meeting, the director allegedly wrote: ‘Thanks for letting me in on your thought process. I know that isn’t fun.

‘Doesn’t feel good to say no to someone, and I respect your honesty.’

Don’t Worry Darling’s US premiere is set to take place on September 19, following its recent Venice Film Festival debut, which kept the world entertained.

It’s been reported that leading lady Florence will not be attending the New York premiere due to her filming Dune 2 in Budapest.

While attentive fans noticed that Florence hasn’t mentioned much about the film on her socials, the Black Widow star shared a string of snaps from the Venice Film Festival while keeping quiet on the feud speculation.

‘I’m still taking it all in! Qwoaaar. What a moment this was? A massive congratulations to everyone standing on that carpet,’ she began. ‘We premiered in Venice! A huge wonderful win in itself.

‘I’d never been to Venice Film Festival before.. It was mega! The crowds! The cheers! The energy was incredible.

‘And to all the cast and crew who helped to make this movie, thank you for all of your hard work. We genuinely wouldn’t have been there without your talent and we appreciate it hugely.’
