Our favorite weirdo Shia LaBeouf wore a paper bag on his head at the Nymphomaniac premiere that read, “I am not famous anymore,” during the 64th Berlinale International Film Festival. This isn’t the first time Shia has worn a paper bag on his head, he had done so years ago to avoid being photographed by the paparazzi, however this is the first time he has done it on the red carpet, in a tux. What can only be described as a series of PR stunts Shia LaBeouf is jumping off the deep end in the most calculated, “pseudo-performance art” way. After plagiarizing graphic novelist Daniel Clowes, Shia plagiarized about 100 apologies to him from other celebrities including Lena Dunham, Alec Baldwin and even, Yahoo answers, the Transformers star declared he was retiring from the public.
Earlier that day Shia LaBeouf stormed out of a press conference about the film because the first question was about doing so many sex scenes. He replied, “When the seagulls follow the trawler, it’s because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea. Thank you very much.”
I have no idea how that statement applies to anything that had happened, but OK. However the phrase is another plagiarization from French soccer legend Eric Cantona, who said it at a press conference in 1995.
