There’s been a slight feud between Shia and Frankie since back in the day of “Even Stevens” and “Malcolm In The Middle.” The feud sort of came back last week when Shia was on a radio show talking about the new “Wall Street 2” movie.
It all stems from Frankie Muniz having a show on FOX, and Shia LaBeouf’s show being on Disney Channel. Frankie allegedly had a bit of an attitude because it was a network show.
Back in 2003, Shia told Entertainment Weekly, “I used to see [Frankie] at premieres and stuff and it would always be like he was looking down on me. And then it turned into we’re equal, and then it turned into, ‘Oh Frankie, I know that guy.'”
In a radio interview in Atlanta, the host was talking about his last 6 movies, and how they have all debuted at number one. Shia replied with, “While that’s flattering as hell, you could have put Frankie Muniz into any of the movies I’ve been in and those movies still would’ve been #1.”
Pretty much saying, hey, if you put a nobody in those roles, the movies were so strong on their own, that they still would have been successful.
Shia was asked what he would do if Frankie heard about it and said, “I really don’t hang out in Frankie Muniz-type zones.”
Frankie did hear, and tweeted, “Dear Shia LaBeouf, it’s getting creepy the fact that you can’t stop talking about me. It’s been 12 years now. I don’t know you. Thanks.”
