Shia LaBeouf Walks Out of NYMPHOMANIAC Press Conference in Berlin
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Shia LaBeouf abruptly walked out of a press conference for Lars von Triers' NYMPHOMANIAC today after answering one question.
When asked about taking part in a film featuring so many sex scenes, he reportedly said, quoting French soccer player Eric Cantona: "When the seagulls follow the trawler, it's because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea. Thank you very much."
LaBeouf, who mysteriously lost one of his bottom teeth per the report, then got up and exited, while his castmates, including Christian Slater and Uma Thurman, looked "stunned."
The actor recent came under fire for plagiarizing Daniel Clowes in his recent short film HOWARDCANTOUR.COM, LaBeouf, then when on to hire a skywriter to pen his apology.
Lars von Triers' NYMPHOMANIAC also stars Charlotte Gainsbourg, Stellan Skarsgard, Jamie Bell, Connie Nielsen, Willem Dafoe, and Jesper Christensen.
NYMPHOMANIAC is the wild and poetic story of a woman's erotic journey from birth to the age of 50 as told by the main character, the self-diagnosed nymphomaniac, Joe. On a cold winter's evening the old, charming bachelor, Seligman, finds Joe beaten up in an alleyway. He brings her home to his flat where he tends to her wounds while asking her about her life. He listens intently as Joe over the next 8 chapters recounts the lushly branched-out and multi faceted story of her life, rich in associations and interjecting incidents.
LaBeouf began his career in the Disney Channel series Even Stevens, for which he received a Daytime Emmy Award, and with his film debut in Holes (2003), based on the novel of the same name by Louis Sachar. In 2004, he made his directorial debut with the short film Let's Love Hate and later directed and shot the music video for "I Never Knew You" by rapper Cage.
In 2007, LaBeouf starred as the lead in the commercially successful films, Disturbia, Transformers and Surf's Up. His other films include Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008),Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (2009), Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps (2010), and Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011).
