'Nymphomaniac: Volume I', the first instalment of a two-part drama about a woman's sexual life from girlhood to age 50, was premiered Feb 9. The 27-year-old actor came in a tuxedo and a paper bag over his head that read "I am not famous anymore", reports

His arrival at the screening followed an unusual behaviour at the film's press conference the same evening.

Director Lars von Trier turned out to be a no-show at the presser, while LaBeouf walked out of it after a reporter asked him whether they were worried about the film's sex scenes.

"When the seagulls follow the trawler, it is because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea," said LaBeouf and left the conference.
