Shia LaBeouf continues his reign of foolishness.

During a press conference over the weekend in Berlin promoting new film "Nymphomaniac," the actor walked out after 10 minutes when asked why he wanted to do a movie with so many sex scenes, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Before bailing, LaBeouf slowly said "When the seagulls follow the trawler, it's because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea. Thank you very much."

Oh. Right. OK, then.

The line is apparently a quote from French soccer legend Eric Cantona, who uttered it during the credits of the film "Looking for Eric."

The Reporter also said LaBeouf -- who has become notorious for bar brawling, plagiarism, and reportedly "retiring" last month -- is missing a bottom tooth.

The rest of the cast and crew on the panel -- which included Christian Slater and Uma Thurman -- looked a bit stunned by his exit, but "lightly applauded" as he left.

It was probably out of relief they didn't have to deal with him anymore.

The fun didn't stop there. The next day, the 27-year-old Transformers actor posed on the red carpet at the International Film Festival Berlinale with a paper bag over his head that read "I Am Not Famous Anymore." He tweeted the same thing on Feb. 2.
