Such truth telling hasn't always amused his colleagues. After being anointed by Steven Spielberg, LaBeouf gave a lukewarm review to Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull, blaming himself as well as the legendary filmmaker for its failings ("When you drop the ball, you drop the ball," he said at the time). "I got lambasted for that, and understandably so," he says, smiling. "Because you can't be an actor and be honest—that's crazy!" Although LaBeouf tells me that Harrison Ford privately applauded his outspokenness, Ford recalls the conversation differently. "I think I told him he was a flunk idiot," the famously reticent star says. "As an actor, I think it's my obligation to support the film without making a complete ass of myself. Shia is ambitious, attentive, and talented—and he's learning how to deal with a situation which is very unique and difficult."

Any major insights about him on this special day?
