"I learned that it's best to always turn them off," Duhamel, 38, told Access Hollywood on Sunday, adding that the scuff was "not my favorite moment."

TMZ first reported that Duhamel was "very rude" and "taunting" a male flight attendant's repeated requests to stop texting. The Transformers star's outburst forced his plane (bound for Kentucky) to leave the runway, reportedly angering fellow passengers. The actor's rep said he was "sorry" for the incident.
