Shia LaBeouf Becomes Famous By Wearing a Bag on His Head
Shia LaBeouf recently showed up at the Berlin International Film Festival wearing a brown paper bag on his head with the definitive words “I’m not famous anymore” scrawled across his face, just to clear up any doubt you might have had about his public standing. It was around this same time that he left during a press conference for the upcoming film Nymphomaniac, Vol. 1 at the festival after sharing a random quote lifted from football’s Eric Cantona, saying “When the seagulls follow the trawler, it’s because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea.”
This most recent stunt is but one of many in the wake of Shia’s short film debacle in which he blatantly plagiarized a comic strip for his creation HowardCantour.com. Since the initial fallout, Shia has been accused plagiarizing and stealing all manner of apologies and other proclamations, and he’s been earnestly Tweeting about the fact that he’s no longer famous since January 13.
Of course, the odd irony is that his continuous publicity stunts and decent into becoming a hot mess have garnered him more attention than ever before. Perhaps this was his intent? Maybe we’ll never know. At least not in his own words, anyway.
