Shia LaBeouf is back at it again. After getting caught numerous times for plagiarism and tweeting that he’s no longer a famous celebrity, he pulled more crazy stunts at the Berlin International Film Festival.
While at the festival to promote his controversial film Nymphomaniac with the rest of the cast, he abruptly walked out of a press conference after answering a question about the film’s sex scenes. After taking a drink of water, Shia replied, “When the seagulls follow the trawler, it’s because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea. Thank you very much.” He then walked off the stage as the audience and his cast laughed and applauded him.

As it turns out, Shia stole his answer, word for word, from French soccer player Eric Cantona back in 1995. We now just think that Shia can’t answer anything for himself anymore – it’s all quotes and phrases that have been used in the past. But if that wasn’t weird enough, he kept up the act by showing up to the premiere of Nymphomaniac wearing a tux with a brown paper bag over his head that read, “I Am Not Famous Anymore.”
Shia tweeted last month that all of his actions within the past couple months have been “performance art,” and we’re guessing everything that went down in Berlin is a part of his project. Hate to break it to you Shia, but you’re not Joaquin Phoenix. Stop trying to pull what he did years ago.
