It's clear Shia LaBeouf was not in the mood for a press conference this weekend.

About 10 minutes after a presser in Berlin began for his upcoming flick "Nymphomaniac" Sunday, the actor got up and walked right out of the room when he was asked why he wanted to do a movie with so many sex scenes, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

He did answer the question before walking away, saying slowly, "When the seagulls follow the trawler, it's because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea. Thank you very much."

Apparently, the line is a quote from French soccer legend Eric Cantona, who says those words in the film "Looking for Eric," while the credits are rolling.

What that has to do with sex scenes or "Nymphomaniac"...LaBeouf didn't say.

The mag, which also reported that the actor is missing a bottom tooth, said 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 pulled themselves together and "lightly applauded" as he left.

LaBeouf's antics didn't stop there, though.

The 27-year-old Charlie Countryman star also posed on the red carpet for the film at the International Film Festival Berlinale Sunday with a paper bag over his head that read, "I Am Not Famous Anymore."

He also tweeted those same words last Sunday, Feb. 2.
