Oh, Shia LaBeouf. He, too, has fallen victim to the “child stars are fucked UP” trope and has completely lost his grip on reality. Sure, he tried to masquerade it as “performance art” for a while, but dude, no one is fooled at this point. He needs to step away from the public eye FOR REAL and spend some serious time with a mental health professional, for his own good (and for ours).
The above photo is from the German premiere of Lars Von Trier’s Nymphomaniac, where he showed up with a paper bag bearing his Twitter-debuted phrase “I Am Not Famous Anymore” along with a barcode in the top right corner of the bag, because, you know, celebrities are commodities, etc.
If that’s not all, he also walked out of a press conference for the film after quoting football player Eric Catona when asked about his sex scenes in the movie:
“When the seagulls follow the trawler, it’s because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea. Thank you very much.”
Uh… LOL. Everyone sorta awkwardly applauded and he just walked off the panel, because, you know, that’ll really show everyone how “artistic” you are? Look, there’s even video!
I don’t know what’s wrong with Shia LaBeouf, but it’s something only a certified mental health professional can determine – and treat – at this point.
