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.

Hey Shia ... You are embarrassing yourself. Nobody is impressed at you bids for attention. Grow up. You are not the caliber of "superstar" that can pull it off - it's gonna backfire - badly.

Really-what's going on with him? He's sliding further and further away from sanity.

The "shtick" of celebrities who pull these stunts is really getting old. This is what happens when talent is non-existent: ridiculous "actors" and stupid behavior runs rampant.

TMZ - you are the catalyst for this actor's supposed "meltdown". SB was incredibly in Charlie Countryman - seems highly unlikely anyone at TMZ watches any type of indie films - always better than Hollywood movies.

I wouldn't want to be famous either. But if he really meant it he would slowly fade into the dark and not appear in any type of film (tv, movies or other wise) and with time people wouldn't remember him. Case closed

I wonder if that quote was some inside joke or if they used it in the movie...? It's so random. And wearing the brown bag makes him look ridiculous!
