    With each new interview, Shia LaBeouf continues to lose friends and infuriate people.

    After the "Transformers" star aired behind-the-scenes dirty laundry through which the world learned that co-star Megan Fox was fired and may or may not have cheated on her boyfriend, he has now managed to anger "Indiana Jones" co-star Harrison Ford.

    LaBeouf publicly bit the hand that fed him in 2010 when he claimed that he and director Steven Spielberg "dropped the ball" on "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull."

    "I feel like I dropped the ball on the legacy that people loved and cherished," he told the Los Angeles Times while at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival. "You get the monkey-swinging and things like that and you can blame it on the writer and you can blame it on Steven [Spielberg]. But the actor's job is to make it come alive and make it work, and I couldn't do it."

    When asked by Details magazine - which currently has LaBeouf on the cover - what went down when Ford confronted LaBeouf about his comments, the veteran action hero did not mince words.

    "I think I told him he was a f***ing idiot," says Ford. "As an actor, I think it's my obligation to support the film without making a complete ass of myself."

    LaBeouf's response? "I got lambasted for that, and understandably so," he says. "Because you can't be an actor and be honest - that's crazy!"

    That sound you hear is another bridge burning.
