    Shia LaBeouf, who starred in Steven Spielberg's 2008 film "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull," slammed the iconic director in a new interview with Variety Magazine.

    "You get there, and you realize you’re not meeting the Spielberg you dream of," LaBeouf said. "You’re meeting a different Spielberg, who is in a different stage in his career. He’s less a director than he is a f—ing company."

    The "Transformer" star has made more news for his off-the-set antics in recent years than for any work he's done in front of the camera. In 2014, LaBeouf, 30, was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct at the Broadway musical "Cabaret."

    His last big-budget production was the 2014 Brad Pitt vehicle "Fury." LaBeouf said in a recent interview he was in talks to star in "Suicide Squad," but those talks ended when Will Smith joined the cast.

    Odds are he won't be appearing in another Spielberg film anytime soon. 

    "I don’t like the movies that I made with Spielberg," he told Variety. "The only movie that I liked that we made together was ‘Transformers’ one."
