Shia LaBeouf's Baldwin beef (and other celebrity fights)
The actor's departure from Orphans got us thinking about other Hollywood and Broadway feuds.

After issuing a vague Tweet alluding to strife on the Orphans stage, actor Shia LaBeouf announced his departure from the Daniel Sullivan–directed show over "creative differences." To explain his decision, LaBeouf posted another missive with a screen grab of an e-mail to Sullivan, playwright Lyle Kessler and co-stars Alec Baldwin and Tom Sturridge. (We're not sure what's shadier: displaying the e-mail for the world to see or plagiarizing half of his words from a 2009 Esquire essay on manhood.)
The former Disney and Transformers star may be the latest performer to bow out of a project because of intracast drama, but he's certainly not the first. Which of the following feuds (some purported, some fully in the open) is your favorite? If we missed one, let us know in the comments and on Twitter (@timeoutnewyork).
