Shia LaBeouf Continues To Seek Attention In Paperbag At Nymphomaniac Premiere

For the 23rd time (and counting), Shia LaBeouf is no longer famous. No, really, he proclaimed it on the front of a paper bag that he wore on top of his head at the premiere for his film Nymphomaniac at the Berlin Film Festival.

The actor, who was in the German city for the premiere of the Lars Von Trier movie, which has garnered much attention thanks to it's promise of graphic sex scenes, made sure he was the centre of attention with his paper bag antics and later stormed out of the movie's press conference.

“I am not famous anymore,” Shia wrote on the lunch carrier and has tweeted every day since Jan. 26. He also committed a fashion faux pas with pairing the brown bag with a black tuxedo.

Not sure this will help Shia's quest to become not famous again. (Clemens Niehaus/Future Image/WENN)

Later, a reporter at the film’s press conference asked the Transformers star about filming a movie with so many sex scenes and Shia gave this cryptic quote.

“When the seagulls follow the trawler, it's because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea," he said. "Thank you very much.”

Shia then stood up and exited the stage, leaving his co-stars and press stunned.

For you non-philosophy majors, the seagulls are the press, the trawler is Shia and the sardines are these magical moments Shia continues to hand us.

The controversial actor didn’t create this latest quip on his own though. Eric Cantona, a football player for Manchester United, uttered that quote at a 1995 press conference after he was suspended for a physical altercation with a fan, according to Gawker.

Next time, try for some originality Shia.
