(Newser) – Ah, Shia: Known plagiarist and head-butter (oh, and actor) Shia LaBeouf stormed out of a press conference in Germany today and later walked a red carpet while wearing a paper bag on his head, TMZ reports. Ten minutes into the Berlin press conference for his new fim, Lars von Trier's Nymphomaniac, LaBoeuf quoted a French soccer player before walking out:

  • "When the seagulls follow the trawler, it's because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea. Thank you very much."
And at the premiere nearly an hour later, he wore a brown paper bag reading "I am not famous anymore." That, by the way, is the same message that he (or an imposter) would wear in a repentance-themed art installation he's proposed to Los Angeles art galleries, notes the Hollywood Reporter. As TMZ put it, "Britney Spears called ... she wants her meltdown back."
