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.

So confusing, is he plagiarizing the Unknown Comic or Joaquin Phoenix?

Why do I have an eery feeling he's the next celeb to hit rock bottom and leave this earth. Something ain't right clearly.

Maybe he could set aside a small amount of money for a modest life and give the rest to charity or make direct personal donations. I'm sure it would be a much more enriching experience than trying to educate entertainment reporters with snappy quotes.

His behavior goes beyond him just trying to get attention or being a little weird. He is really starting to come off as being seriously mentally unbalanced.
In fact there are parts of his behavior that are similar to Amanda Bynes ... doing one erratic, irrational thing after another - including 'RETIRING". He is the same age as Amanda where certain types of mental disorders emerge
It may be time for another 5150 evaluation.

Was that Eric Cantona who said the same thing at a conference back in the 90s?

Oh, I bet the producers, studio, fellow actors and crew just love the way he's hijacking the PR campaign for his film. Way to go, douche bag.
