Bill Murray Claims Shia LeBeouf's "Funny Name" Is The Reason For His Odd Behaviour
Bill Murray offers a simple enough explanation for Shia LaBeouf's recent acts of bizarre behaviour: "He's got a funny name. That's his problem."
Bill Murray gets straight to the point!
The 63 year-old actor was as sarcastic and hilarious as ever when attending a buyer's brunch at the 2014 International Film Festival Berlinale.
Murray has two films premiering at the event, Wes Anderson's 'The Grand Budapest Hotel' and George Clooney's World War II flick 'The Monuments Men'.
He was also on hand to promote an upcoming comedy-musical titled 'Rock The Kasbah', and couldn't help but take a shot at one of his fellow cast members, Shia LaBeouf, whose recent antics can only be described as confusing and rather odd.
"Shia LaBeouf, I don't know. He's got a funny name. That's his problem...and a cross to bear," Murray said (via THR). "It's like "A Boy Named Sue".he probably got beat up a lot."
The 27 year-old actor hit the headlines yesterday (Feb 9th) for his bizarre behaviour at the premiere of his new movie 'Nymphomaniacs.'
While attending a press conference for the Lars von Trier-directed film, LaBeouf was asked about his frequent and graphic sex scenes, but the 'Lawless' actor didn't reply, he had something else on his mind.
Shia quoted French soccer legend Eric Cantana by stating, "When the seagulls follow the trawler, it's because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea. Thank you very much," before waling out of the presser.

This line is from a film called 'Looking For Eric,' in which soccer player Cantona says while at a press conference and the movie's credits are rolling.
Shia's strange behaviour didn't end there, while walking the red carpet at the 'Nymphomaniacs' premiere, he wore a paper bag over his head with the words "I AM NOT FAMOUS ANYMORE" written across it.
These are the same five words the 'Lawless' actor has been posting on his twitter account every day since January 13th.
Is this the start of a Murray-LeBeouf feud?
