Shia LaBeouf’s public antics don’t seem as though they’ll be abating anytime soon. It appears the Transformers has pulled yet another publicity stunt that has left onlookers flabbergasted by his actions.
From his long list of legal woes and crass views on religion, to his most recent plagiarism accusations and repetitive Twitter stunt, its quite clear that the actor is either starving for attention or completely bored with his life.
According to TMZ, he’s at it again. Earlier today, the actor attended a press conference in Berlin, Germany for the Lars von Trier two-part drama film Nymphomaniac, which he stars in with Charlotte Gainsbourg, Stellan Skarsgård, Stacy Martin, Jamie Bell and Christian Slater.
However, his attendance was short-lived. The actor stunned his co-stars with his sporadic actions by giving a bizarre answer to the only question he answered during the conference before abruptly storming out unannounced.
When LaBeouf was asked what he thought about doing so many sex scenes for the film, he definitely offered a response no one was ready for.
“When the seagulls follow the trawler, it’s because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea. Thank you very much.”
That was all he had to say before making the infamous trek toward the exit! But, the antics didn’t stop there. The 27-year-old actor took the antics to the next level when he stepped out on the red carpet at the film’s premiere. Less than an hour after his departure from the press conference, he showed up at the Berlin Film Festival in a tuxedo with a brown paper bag over his head that said, “I am not famous anymore.”
The pictures began popping up all over Twitter as fans tweeted to share their sentiments of LaBeouf’s odd antics.

So is Shia Labeouf going to be the next Lindsay Lohan/Amanda Bynes? Because I really had my money on Justin Bieber.

LaBeouf began reciting the phrase about three weeks ago, posting it on his Twitter timeline almost every single day. As a matter of fact, that’s all he’s had to say since Jan.13.
I AM NOT FAMOUS ANYMORE

Then, if that’s not enough, he also caused quite a scene at his hotel yesterday, says The Hollywood Reporter. The publication reports that the actor displayed bizarre behavior at a lounge inside of the Ritz Carlton on Saturday, Feb. 8. He actually lunged at three young patrons who attempted to take a picture of him.
While its no secret that not all celebrities are camera friendly, LaBeouf takes things to a whole new level, and his most recent meltdown is a prime example. He’s definitely going ballistic.
