Is Fame Driving Actor Shia LaBeouf Out of the Biz?

Actor Shia LaBeouf

Actor Shia LaBeouf apparently doesn’t like fame, or answering reporters. During an appearance of the premier of his new film, “Nymphomaniac, Volume 1,” LaBeouf wore a paper bag over his head with cutouts for eyes to accompany his tuxedo. Written in black marker was “I am not famous anymore,” on the red carpet in Berlin Sunday.

LaBeouf said his actions were performance art, and nothing else.

The 27-year-old echoed the same words on his Twitter account in mid January after announcing he was retiring from public life. LaBeouf was accused of plagiarizing from Justin M. Damiano’s comic story with his own short Howardcantour.com.

It’s speculated that the Damiano incident fueled LaBeouf’s riff with fame.

LaBeouf, who is known for his roles in “Transformers” and “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull,” abruptly left a press conference before the premier. Fellow cast members Uma Thurman, Christian Slater, Stellan Skarsgard, Stacy Martin, and producer Louise Vesth all appeared stunned.

The actor wore a dingy beige ball cap, looked fatigued, had a scratch on his cheek, and was missing a bottom tooth. He responded to one question regarding his many sex scenes in the movie, and then quoted soccer player Eric Cantona, who caused a stir after kicking a fan in 1995.

“When the seagulls follow the trawler, it’s because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea. Thank you very much, ” and LaBeouf left the media room.

Thurman laughed and the panel applauded after LaBeouf’s departure.
