Shia LaBeouf made a startling appearance at a performance of Orphans in New York this week after dramatically walking out of the show after a dramatic bust-up with co-star Alec Baldwin. The two actors fell out during rehearsal and verbally attacked each other afterwards on Twitter.

At the end of the performance it was reported in the New York Times that Shia LaBeouf "shot out of his seat and applauded enthusiastically" giving Baldwin a standing ovation. However it was noted that this might have just been the Wall Street star's way of grabbing some more of the attention.

It also didn't go unnoticed by the rest of the crowd when Alec Baldwin saw LaBeouf in the audience and stared at him directly for a short period of time. Well, the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull star was sitting right in the front row!

Later on Alec Baldwin asked his fans on Twitter what they all made of the performance. In a now deleted tweet, LaBeouf replied "good show - all around".

The initial fight between the two actors began earlier this year when Shia LaBeouf was reported to have walked out of Orphans because of "creative differences". Then the Transformers star leaked screenshots of emails that had been sent between him, Baldwin and the show's director Daniel Sullivan.

In the first set of emails LaBeouf appeared to be trying to prevent the fight from going further writing "Alec, Im sorry for my part in this dis-agreeable situation" but later after Baldwin hinted that he didn't think LaBeouf was a very good actor, the bitter young star released emails showing how deep the feud went.

In a heavy blow to Baldwin, LaBeouf leaked an email in which the shows director praised LeBeouf over the Beetlejuice star saying "don't be too surprised if Alec doesn't look up from his script much for the first few days.

"I suspect he's not nearly as prepared as you are. "Not unusual at all when actors have a good long rehearsal time like we have. I just don't want it to throw you."
