Shia LaBeouf Wears Paper Bag to Berlin Film Festival: VIDEO


Shia LaBeouf arrived at the Berlin Film Festival for a screening of his latest film Nymphomaniac, directed by Lars von Trier, wearing a paper bag that said "I am not famous anymore."

The incognito arrival came hours after a bizarre press conference in which he answered a single question. LaBeouf, who was also missing a tooth, was asked about his multiple sex scenes in the film and said,

"When the seagulls follow the trawler, it’s because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea. Thank you very much."

The line was taken from the film "Looking for Eric" and said by French soccer star Eric Cantona.

  1. He's headed straight for the looney bin. Careful what you wish for, pal!

  2. Hetero sex is so boring

  3. If he wants to be not famous anymore, go drive a bus for a living. Stunts like this will just make him more famous.

  4. He has a collection of bags, some casual, some formal:
    "I am not getting enough attention"
    "I am hot under here"
    "Don't look at me"
    "Haven't you ever seen a grocery bag before?"
    "Paper or plastic? Paper is safer" (public service announcement)

  6. Oh, FFS, Shia. Quit embarrassing yourself. If you're going to be a try-hard, then follow James Franco's example and make lots of gay faux-porn.

  7. I'm sorry but he is so hot. To quote the Simpsons: "he's troubled, but I can save him!"

  8. He sucks. Everything about him sucks. Poor little rich, famous boy. He has the ultimate first world problems. Cry me a river, dude. Seriously.

  9. Mike, I was thinking the same thing. Shia, Joaquin Phoenix has already elevated the crack-up to performance art. We've been here before.

  10. Time for rehab Shia.

  11. It's weird, cry for help.

  12. Rehab, possibly. Then, bipolar medication.

  13. Either this is a Joaquin Phoenix-style prank, done for publicity/business purposes, or he is genuinely reacting to the weird artifice of celebrity.

    Either way, I am only mildly interested at best.

  14. Lame-ass straight, uptight white boy.

    Posted by: Raybob | Feb 10, 2014 10:53:01 AM

  15. Lame and boring. A big fail if it's some kind of stunt.

  16. Well... actually because this is the US and not Europe, what he's done is to repeat an infamous quote from the legendary French Footballer called Eric Cantona. Once you understand the context you wlll appreciate that it is a complaint or expression of frustration about the media and press intrusion into his life.

  17. he needs to get over himself

    Posted by: Moz's | Feb 10, 2014 11:33:39 AM

  18. If I was missing a prominent bottom tooth I'd put a bag over my face too.

  19. Again and again Shia's behavior shows that he has psychological problems. Hopefully he has family and friends who are trying to get him into therapy.

  20. Joaquin did it better.

  21. Gurrrl, hot mess walkin'

    Posted by: Brandon h | Feb 10, 2014 1:35:37 PM

  22. I always thought he should wear a paper bag over his face.

    Posted by: Jase | Feb 10, 2014 2:52:31 PM

  23. CRAIG: So what you're saying is he's plagiarized AGAIN?!?!?!
