An admittedly “sweaty” Wilde, 38, spoke while driving in the 2020 selfie video, explaining to LaBeouf, 36, that she had just been riding a horse.
“I wanted to reach out because I feel like I’m not ready to give up on this yet,” she said. “I, too, am heartbroken, and I want to figure this out.”
The “Booksmart” director went on to hint at a disagreement between LaBeouf and the film’s lead actress, Florence Pugh.
“I think this might be a bit of a wake-up call for Miss Flo, and I want to know if you’re open to giving this a shot with me, with us,” she said.
“If she really commits, if she really puts her mind and heart into it at this point, and if you guys can make peace — and I respect your point of view, I respect hers — but if you guys can do it, what do you think?” Wilde continued.
The “House” alum concluded by repeatedly asking the actor whether there was “hope,” requesting that he “let [her] know” his decision.
The leaked footage comes after Wilde told Variety that the “Even Stevens” alum was axed from the project and replaced by her now-boyfriend, Harry Styles, to keep other cast members “safe” from his “combative energy.”
LaBeouf clapped back at her allegations in an email to Variety Thursday and also sent the magazine screenshots of texts Wilde allegedly messaged him in August 2020 after he expressed a desire to quit.
“Doesn’t feel good to say no to someone, and I respect your honesty,” Wilde purportedly wrote in one text. “I’m gutted because it could have been something special.”
LaBeouf claimed that he “officially” quit the day after he received that message, which was reportedly sent on Aug. 16.
Now, the former Disney Channel star is asking Wilde to correct her previous allegations, writing in the email published Friday that the “O.C.” alum has made it “harder” for him to “crawl out of the hole” he dug amid previous scandals.
The “Honeyboy” star, who was accused of abuse in 2021 and has since sought treatment, explained, “This situation with your film and my ‘firing’ will never have a court date with which to deal with the facts. If lies are repeated enough in the public they become truth.
“Firing me never took place, Olivia,” LaBeouf continued. “And while I fully understand the attractiveness of pushing that story because of the current social landscape, the social currency that brings. It is not the truth.”
