Oh, Shia.

Okay, I lied about not posting on the weekend, because someone’s having a busy one! From The Hollywood Reporter:

BERLIN – Shia LaBeouf stormed out of a press conference for Lars von Trier‘s Nymphomaniac Sunday after answering one question.

He slowly and deliberately said: “When the seagulls follow the trawler, it’s because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea. Thank you very much.”

The rest of the panelists in attendance — including stars Christian Slater, Stacy Martin, Stellan Skarsgard, Uma Thurman and producer Louise Vesth — looked stunned for a moment before lightly applauding while LaBeouf quickly exited.

The “seagulls” line is a quote from French soccer legend Eric Cantona who is featured in Ken Loach‘s Looking for Eric. The film ends with footage of Cantona at press conference where he made the seagulls statement while the credits roll.

Well, if nothing else, he finds some interestingly obscure things to plagiarize, especially for a no-longer-famous person. (Click that link. Definitely click it.) Shia, I hope you’re just messing with us at this point, because if not, I’m getting concerned. Maybe talk to someone? In actual sentences, not weird stolen quotes?

(Also, Christian Slater is in a movie again…? Good for him!)

Thanks to Artdork for the tip!

    I can’t believe he just left those poor seagulls (reporters) high and dry (wink) and without a sardine (his responses) like that.

    Oh Shia…it’s so hard to miss you when you won’t go away.

    AND…if we had figured this posting image thing out (which we will!) I would have posted a pic from the Simpsons where Thomas Pynchon wears a bag on his head and offers people his autograph, etc. Pretty funny, artdork, you’d all say. And then we’d laugh!

    I kinda miss the days when not everybody hated that guy as much as I did. We had a very special relationship.

    I saw his paper bag head earlier and thought how this would definitely have been a Mr. Cool Disguise post.

  5. Can a person troll themselves?

    I feel like his code speak to the Illuminati is a bit TOO obvious right now.

    Well I, for one, am looking forward to the unauthorized shot for shot remake of I’m Not Here. I just couldn’t get enough of shenanigans the first time.
