8 Of The Most Bizarre Things Shia LaBeouf Has Done – If You Haven’t Had Enough Already

Though Shia LaBeouf’s known for appearing in a number of hit films, including the first three Transformers movies, FuryNymphomaniac and Disturbia, he’s also known for his public art performances. Over the years he’s done quite a few things in the name of art that people think are downright crazy. There’s probably a deep message behind all of his crazy acts, but most people just haven’t got a clue what it is. Here are 8 of the most bizarre things Shia LaBeouf has done.

  1. The Nymphomaniac premier

During the Berlin Film Festival, Shia turned up to the premier of Nymphomaniac with a paper bag over his head that said ‘I AM NOT FAMOUS ANYMORE’.

For the press conference for Nymphomaniac, Shia turned up wearing casual, baggy clothes and when he was asked his first question, he simply said ‘when the seagulls follow the trawler, it’s because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea. Thank you very much,’ then he upped it and left the press conference, leaving everyone perplexed.

3. His Nymphomaniac audition

Going back to Nymphomaniac again, Shia took photos of his private parts and recorded himself and his girlfriend having sex – he sent these to the film’s director and got the part!

4. Preparation for his role in Fury

To prepare for his role as a US army private in WWII action movie Fury, Shia reportedly pulled out his own teeth and stopped showering for several weeks. He even got put up in a separate hotel because the cast and crew couldn’t stand his smell.

5. The #IAmSorry exhibit

To try to make amends for his bizarre behaviour, Shia held an exhibition entitled #IAmSorry at an art gallery in downtown LA. Visitors to this exhibition saw Shia sitting at a table wearing his ‘I AM NOT FAMOUS ANYMORE’ paper bag while dressed in a tuxedo. Some people even took the paper bag off his head to make sure it was really him and found that he appeared to be crying.

6. The homeless man chase
