(USA TODAY) So much for stayingoutof the spotlight.

Shia LaBeouf's recent string of bizarre behavior only got stranger on Sunday when he wore a paper bag on his head at the premiere of his filmNymphomaniac, Volume 1during the 64th Berlinale International Film Festival.

The tuxedo-clad actor posed for photos as he peeked through two eye cutouts in the paper bag, on which the words "I am not famous anymore" were written. It's the same sentence he's beenrepeatedlybeen tweeting since Jan. 13.

Earlier on Sunday, LaBeouf stormed out of a press conference for the film after answering just onequestion, according toThe Hollywood Reporter. And what an answer it was: when asked about his many sex scenes in theLars von Trierfilm, he responded, "When the seagulls follow the trawler, it's because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea. Thank you very much."

His fellow panelists -- including starsChristian Slater, Stacy Martin,Stellan Skarsgard,Uma Thurmanand producer Louise Vesth -- reportedly looked stunned for a moment before lightly applauding while LaBeouf made a quick exit.

Slater tried to diffuse the situation in his next answer, saying, "Obviously, the script is packed with a lot of sardines ... one sardine after another."

In town to promote the film, LaBeouf's troubles began Saturday night when he lunged after three young men who tried to take his photo at theRitz Carltonlounge. The 27-year-old actor's friends quickly intervened to calm him down.

The "seagulls" line is a quote from French soccer legendEric Cantona, who is featured in Ken Loach'sLooking for Eric.

In January, LaBeouf took to Twitter todeclarehe was "retiring from all public life." That came on theheels of a controversythat was ignited in December when it was revealed that his critically praised short filmHowardCantour.comwas lifted from artistDan Clowes' graphic storyJustin M. Damiano.
