Finding the Art in Shia LaBeouf's Antics

By Jordan Smith, Hollywood Staff

Shia LaBeouf sure had a wacky weekend. While walking the red carpet for his new film Nymphomaniac, the actor wore a paper bag over his head with the words' I am not famous anymore scrawled across it in thick black writing. If that phrase doesn't sound familiar, it should, since LaBeouf has been repeating it non-stop on his twitter account since about mid January. The actor has long had a rash for questionable behavior, but things have escalated to even weirder heights ever since the actor was embroiled in a scandal after plagiarizing much of cartoonist Daniel Clowes work in his short film, HowardCantour.com. In a move that's possibly even weirder, when fielding questions about his role in Lars von Trier's Nymphomaniac, and specifically, the films numerous and graphic sex scenes, LaBeouf sidestepped the question and instead uttered, When the seagulls follow the trawler, it's because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea, a quote famously said by footballer Eric Cantona at the close of the French film Looking for Eric. Labeouf has said that his bouts of plagiarism have been performance art, and these recent outbursts of strange behavior are no doubt a part of whatever message the actor is trying to send the world. We've decided to try and analyze Shia's recent behavior through the artistic lens, and see if we can make any sense of his recent actions.
