Shia LaBeouf & A Paper Bag. WTF??

Previous Dickens Cider


Okay, seriously, what’s up with this guy?

ACTOR Shia LaBeouf has stormed out of a Berlin Film Festival press conference and then taken to the red carpet with a brown paper bag on his head. Because, you know, why not.

The 27-year-old actor, wearing a dirty baseball cap and chomping on chewing gum, marched out of the press conference about his new film Nymphomaniac Volume I after fielding his first question.

The question, about doing a movie with so much sex, prompted the actor to quote French footballer Eric Cantona’s infamous insult of a pesky press corps, as he marched out.

“When seagulls follow the trawler it is because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea,’’ he said.

He later took to the red carpet wearing a brown paper bag over his head featuring the words “I am not famous anymore”. Hmmm, tantrum, anyone?


It is the latest display of increasingly odd behaviour from the star, whose film credits include Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

Last year, LaBoeuf was accused of plagiarising parts of his short film HowardCantour.com from David Clowes’ 2007 comic Justin M. Damiano.

The actor made an attempt at apologising, first on Twitter and then via skywriting, before getting embroiled in a social media war of words with Girls creator Lena Dunham.

In January he announced he was stepping out of the public eye.

“In light of the recent attacks against my artistic integrity, I am retiring from all public life,” the 27-year-old actor, tweeted. “My love goes out to those who have supported me. #stopcreating.”

About a week later he was accused of headbutting a man in a London bar fight.

His new movie Nymphomaniac, which screened out of competition in Berlin, was directed by scandal-courting Danish director Lars von Trier and stars Charlotte Gainsbourg, Stellan Skarsgard, Christian Slater, Uma Thurman and newcomer Stacy Martin.
