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.

More and more I am starting to believe he is pulling a joaquin phoenix type of thing. Just seems so staged.

Pathetic. Maybe he should've kept his ass home.

He paper bagged his head because douche bagging his head would be too literal.

If this was someone that was an amazing artist...maybe it would be understandable. Someone should tell Shia that he really hasn't done anything that comes even close to being that type of artist. He's a lot lower on the scale than that.

You just gotta love it when a actor hits the rare jackpot and becomes so full of himself , he just turns into a ungrateful batch, this dude is so annoying, just go away if all this good fortune is below you.

The Britney Spears comment was so unnecessary. She was suffering from mental illness. Shia is just being an ass.

That beating he received in Vancouver has knocked his marbles loose.

Someone should tell this fool that Joquin Phoenix already did the "pretending your crazy" trick. This fool is empty inside. He has no emotions, common sense or basic intelligence. And he's freakin' ugly.

The bag over his head is a major improvement.

If I was director, producer of this movie, I'd be upset with how Shia is doing PR for his art movie.
