Shia LaBeouf's 'Pieces of a Woman' Co-Star Vanessa Kirby Says "I Stand with All Survivors of Abuse"
Published Jan 04, 2021Last month, Shia LaBeouf was faced with serious abuse allegations from former partner and Honey Boy co-star FKA twigs as well as another former partner Karolyn Pho. Honey Boy director Alma Har'el shared an open letter of support for LaBeouf's alleged victims, and now LaBeouf's more recent Pieces of a Woman co-star Vanessa Kirby has also commented on the allegations.
In a statement released to The Sunday Times, Kirby said, "I stand with all survivors of abuse and respect the courage of anyone who speaks their truth. Regarding the recent news, I can't comment on an ongoing legal case."
Pieces of a Woman is the English language debut from Hungarian director Kornél Mundruczó. In the film, which debuted at TIFF last year and hits Netflix next week, LaBeouf plays Kirby's husband.
In response to the initial allegations, LaBeouf said, "I am not cured of my PTSD and alcoholism, but I am committed to doing what I need to do to recover, and I will forever be sorry to the people that I may have harmed along the way."
