I AM NOT FAMOUS ANYMORE February 2014
Having starred in Nymphomaniac, directed by Lars Von Trier, LaBeouf headed to Berlin for the film’s promotion, starting with a press conference that he showed up to in a grimy white baseball hat and promptly left after taking a sloppy drink of water and quipping about sardines and seagulls. He’d lifted the line, it transpired, from the soccer player Eric Cantona, effectively adding to his ever-growing list of plagiarism accusations. (Before that, he looked to Charles Bukowski for his 2012 graphic novel "Let’s F—king Party," and more recently, a journalist for one of his director’s statements.) Still, that was hardly LaBeouf's oddest appearance for the film: He walked the premiere’s red carpet with a paper lunch bag over his head, with cut-out eye holes and the phrase "I AM NOT FAMOUS ANYMORE."
