Shia LaBeouf's run of recent bizarre behavior took center stage in Berlin, Germany Sunday. Shia started at a movie-promo press conference by offering up a strange, borrowed quote and then storming out. LaBeouf then showed up on the red carpet premiere for the film shorty after that wearing a paper bag on his head, according to TMZ on Feb. 9.

Actor Shia LaBeouf, 27, was attending the Berlin Film Festival to promote his new film "Nymphomaniac," alongside co-stars Uma Thurman and Christian Slater.

But just ten minutes in to the presser, he used a famous quote borrowed from a French soccer player in order to answer a reporter. Shia's first question was about what it was like filming a movie with so many sex scenes.

LaBeouf, who was noticeably 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." He then stood and walked off stage.

His co-stars on the panel appeared stunned by his antics, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Christian Slater tried to diffuse the situation by answering his next question joking, "Obviously, the script is packed with a lot of sardines...one sardine after another."

About an hour later, Shia showed up at the red carpet premiere and posed for photographers decked out in a stylish tuxedo, and a paper bag with eye-holes cut out on his head.

Across the bag was scrawled the words "I am not famous anymore." LaBeouf has frequently repeated the statement on his Twitter page.

The troubled actor's bizarre behavior started Saturday night, when three young men tried to snap a photo of him in the lounge at the Ritz-Carlton hotel, only to have LaBeouf lunge at them.

Acquaintances intervened, but reports say many at the hotel were caught off guard by the actor's odd behavior and unkempt appearance.

LaBeouf has developed a reputation for retweeting famous apologies from other celebs, after he plagiarized an apology to apologize for plagiarizing comic Daniel Clowes for his short film HowardCantour.com.

TMZ couldn't help but take a crack at LaBeouf's latest antics, writing, "Britney Spears called...she wants her meltdown back."
