Who knew Brad Pitt was such a big fan of the Transformers franchise?

That can be the only explanation behind this comment about his co-star in Fury, the one and only Shia LaBeouf:

“Oh, I love this boy. He’s one of the best actors I’ve ever seen. He’s full-on commitment, man. He’s living it like no one else, let me tell you. I’ve been fortunate to work with a lot of great actors. He’s one of the best I’ve seen.”

Um, are you serious Brad? Even Stevens? That awful Indiana Jones movie? That kid is the one of the best actors you’ve ever seen?

Pitt has been in movies with multiple generations of Oscar winners. In what world does Shia fit in with that group?

There’s only one reasonable explanation for this comment: Brad Pitt is the greatest troll of our lifetime.
