Shia LaBeouf is behaving very oddly lately, storming out of a Berlin press conference for his movie “Nymphomaniac” on Sunday, after answering one question.
The actor also walked the red carpet with a paper bag over his head with “I am not famous anymore” written on it. WTH?
The 27-year-old actor was asked about his sex scenes in the Lars von Trier movie “Nymphomaniac”, responding with, “When the seagulls follow the trawler, it’s because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea. Thank you very much”.
The line is a quote from French soccer legend Eric Cantona, as recited in the movie “Looking for Eric”. His behavior is bizarre but people applauded as he left.
LaBeouf got up from the press conference and left, after only being there for maybe ten minutes.
Shia’s co-stars, which included Christian Slater, Uma Thurman and Stellan Skarsgard , looked a bit shocked by his comments and abrupt exit.
Slater attempted to lighten things up by joking, “Obviously, the script is packed with a lot of sardines… one sardine after another.”
LaBeouf walked the red carpet with a paper bag on his head which read “I am not famous anymore.” It’s the same sentence he has been repeating on his Twitter page since January 13.
The actor looked like a hobo and even had a missing bottom tooth.
Is Shia LaBeouf losing it or trying to drum up publicity for the film? Who knows but he is acting like an obnoxious brat.
