Eyes cut out and the words ‘I am not famous anymore.’ Just before the red carpet, at a press conference for his movie ‘nymphomaniac’ he stormed out after 10 minutes. They asked him a question about the movie and he gave a weird response … then stormed out. LaBeouf was asked what it was like to shoot a movie with so many sex scenes, to which he answered cryptically: “When the seagulls follow the trawler, it’s because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea.
