Shia LaBeouf is Still "Borrowing" Other People's Quotes

With another day comes more strange behavior from Shia LaBeouf, Hollywood's current reigning weirdo. On the spectrum this falls relatively low, closer to "plagiarizing" Gucci Mane apologies than headbutting dudes in bars. Apparently the press conference for Nymphomaniac, the upcoming Lars Von Triers film which LaBeouf stars in, held at the Berlin Film Festival, was rather uneventful until he briefly livened things up.

Shia reportedly wore a hat with the brim down low over his eyes and didn't speak at all for most of the duration, leaving the comments and insight into the shooting process up to co-stars like Uma Thurman and Christian Slater. Then after a while he finally spoke up, said one thing, and quietly exited. His parting words: "When the seagulls follow the trawler, it's because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea."

Important note: there was no anger or aggression in his voice nor his exit. Another important note: Manchester United player Eric Cantona did and said the exact same thing at a soccer press conference before. Clearly, Shia is still trolling the press in the wake of Apology-Gate (co-star Stacy Martin's reaction is more amused than confused). So who did the knowledge drop-and-dip best? Compare both exits in the videos below and praise Shia for consistently throwing sardines of hilarity out to us seagulls.
