In the past few months, actor Shia LaBeouf's strange behavior was overlooked by most people. However, in his appearance at the premiere of his film Nymphomaniac, Volume 1 at the 64th Berlinale International Film Festival on Sunday, February 9, people couldn't ignore he wore a paper bag on his head with the sentence "I am not famous anymore."

This is the same sentence that the actor has been repeatedly tweeting since January 13.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Transformers actor also walked out of a press conference for the film after he was asked about the number of sex scenes in the film. His response was: "When the seagulls follow the trawler, it's because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea. Thank you very much." He then thanked the audience then made a quick exit. The other actors in the panel- includes Christian Slater,  Stellan Skarsgard, Stacy Martin and Uma Thurman appeared shocked but quickly got over it.

Slater then said: "Obviously, the script is packed with a lot of sardines ... one sardine after another."

The response is a quote from French soccer legend Eric Cantona who also walked out on a press conference. What was its connection to the film? LaBeouf did not say.

In January, LaBeouf was involved in a plagiarism controversy involving his short film HowardCantour.com, which was said to be copied from Dan Clowes' graphic story Justin M. Damiano. He apologized to Clowes then took to Twitter to declare his retirement from the public life, People reported.
