continued to display his antics at the press conference of Lars von Trier's "" on Sunday, February 9. The actor, who was hit hard with plagiarism scandal in December, inexplicably stormed out of the press conference and wore a paper bag over his head on the red carpet of International Film Festival Berlinale.

LaBeouf spent only 10 minutes at the press conference after answering one question using someone else's quote. The first question asked him about doing a movie with so many sex scenes. LaBeouf, who looked thinner and was missing a lower tooth, answered slowly and deliberately, "When the seagulls follow the trawler, it's because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea. Thank you very much." The quote LaBeouf used came from French soccer legend Eric Cantona who also said the same sentence at a press conference for "Looking for Eric".

LaBeouf made his exit and stunned the rest of the panelists including , , , Stacy Martin and producer Louise Vesth. The audience gave LaBeouf a light applause as he walked away. Slater then attempted to lighten the situation with a joke. "Obviously, the script is packed with a lot of sardines ...one sardine after another," he said.

The actor made another statement on the red carpet walk of "Nymphomaniac" an hour later by wearing a paper bag which read, "I am not famous anymore." He has been using the quote on his Twitter since announcing his retirement from the movie industry last month because his creative work has been attacked. LaBeouf would later denounce his retirement and antics by calling them "performance art."
