Shia LaBeouf has irritated his co-stars on the set of his new film Fury by refusing to shower - for weeks at a time.
A source told The Daily Mail: "Shia drove everyone mad on set trying to prove that he was the most dedicated star.

As a result of his lack of grooming, LaBeouf was forced to stay in a hotel away from the rest of the cast.
