Shia LaBeouf

Storms Out Of Press Conference

Paper Bags Own Head

breaking news



Shia LaBeouf proved he's dying for attention during the premiere of his new movie Sunday ... by storming out of a press conference in Germany ... then showing up to the red carpet with a paper bag over his head.

Shia attended a press conference in Berlin for Lars von Trier's "Nymphomaniac" ... and ten minutes in used a famous quote from a French soccer player to answer a reporter's question.

Shia -- who was missing a bottom tooth -- said, "When the seagulls follow the trawler, it's because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea. Thank you very much." Then walked off stage.

And if that wasn't thirsty enough ... he showed up to the actual premiere less than an hour later with a brown paper bag over his head (pictured below) that said "I am not famous anymore."

Britney Spears called ... she wants her meltdown back.

The thirst for attention and fame has turned into a mental illness in this Country. The entertainment now is watching them self explode. This goon is fried.

So, he is "not famous anymore"? Good, go away so that we do not have to hear about your pathetic, self pity party anymore. You're an insufferable bore and a mediocre actor at best. See ya.

this guys is so desperate for attention then when he gets it he pukes out someone else's words trying to be prolific.

he needs to just be happy he's being asked questions, because he's such an attention whore, when that stops he'll make the news with his suicide

Great...here comes the next celebrity meltdown...whoop! When they feel they are falling from spotlight why not do something smart like perhaps work on their acting skills but I guess we lice in a society where idiocracy is fame.

I don't think this is a cry for attention. It appears to be more of an, "I don't give a f**ck kind of attitude. Something "Hollywood" only views as either a melt down or a cry for attention because in Hollywood, it's all about being fake, not showing your true colors so people will like you and pay money to go watch your movies.
