Shia LaBeouf's bizarre behavior in Germany over the weekend left some wondering if there is cause for concern.

The actor – who's promoting his new film, Nymphomaniac, at the Berlin International Film Festival – arrived sporting a shaved-down tooth and disheveled appearance for the cast panel, answering only one question before quickly exiting the room.

When asked how it felt to be in a movie with such explicit sex scenes, LaBeouf took a drink of water and said, "When the seagulls follow the trawler, it's because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea."

The actor, 27, then thanked the audience, got up and left.

If you have to make a public apology following a very public controversy, what better place to express said remorse than the sky itself?

That was apparently Shia LaBeouf's thinking: The actor apologized to graphic novelist Daniel Clowes, whose work LaBeouf is accused of plagiarizing, and he did so in appropriately outsize fashion, hiring a skywriter to broadcast the message above L.A.

2003 vs. 2013: Charlie Countryman Stars Evan Rachel Wood & Shia LaBeouf Then & Now

Originally posted 11/14/2013 09:00AM

A lot has changed since 2003. Namely, dogs are climbing Mount Everest and twerking is considered dancing.

But, for now, we're just going to focus on Evan Rachel Wood and Shia LaBeouf.

In their latest film, Charlie Countryman – now playing in select theaters – LaBeouf falls for Wood's character, a Romanian girl who (uh-oh!) is already married.

But before their bad romance plays out on the big screen, let's take a look back at the good ol' days.

Oh, my!

How else to react to the provocative posters for Nymphomaniac – the upcoming film from Danish director Lars von Trier – that capture each of the movie's stars in a seemingly heightened state of arousal.

Set for a world premiere in Denmark on Christmas Day, the controversial NC-17 film follows the erotic life of a woman, Joe (played by Charlotte Gainsbourg) from birth to the age of 50, and stars Shia LaBeouf, Uma Thurman, Christian Slater and Jamie Bell, among others.

Shia LaBeouf Drops Out of Broadway Play Due to 'Creative Differences'

Shia LaBeouf will not be bowing on the Great White Way this spring.

The actor, who was scheduled to make his Broadway debut in a revival of the play Orphans alongside Alec Baldwin, has dropped out due to "creative differences" producers say in a statement released to the Associated Press.

A source confirms the actor's departure, telling PEOPLE, "He was really into it, but at the end of the day he and the director had very different visions of what his character was like. And, unfortunately, they couldn't resolve those differences."

Another source close to the play echoes that the reason for LaBeouf's withdrawal "amounted to creative differences with the director and Shia."

It looks like Shia LaBeouf may take Method acting very seriously.

For his latest independent film, The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman, which costars Evan Rachel Wood, Rupert Grint, Melissa Leo and Mads Mikkelsen, LaBeouf, 26, plays a Mob character – one who trips out on LSD, reports USA Today.

"There's a way to do an acid trip like [the comedy] Harold & Kumar," he tells the newspaper, "and there's a way to be on acid."

Robert Pattinson put on a happy face Monday night, at the afterparty following the New York City premiere of Cosmopolis.

Making his way to the PH-D Rooftop Lounge at Manhattan's Dream Downtown hotel at around 10 p.m., the heartbroken actor – who was recently cheated on by girlfriend Kristen Stewart – sipped a bottle of beer and took regular puffs from an electronic cigarette, according to an onlooker.

"He was very charismatic, all smiles, looking very relaxed and hugging all who stopped by to say hi," the insider tells PEOPLE about Pattinson, who left around midnight. "The general crowd gravitated towards his table, but he was shielded by security. He was surrounded by women and the movie's cast."

Adds the source, "The whole room was watching him, and he looked genuinely at ease and comfortable the whole time."

Other guests at the fete included Judah Friedlander, Shia LaBeouf and the film's costar Paul Giamatti, who stayed "away from the cast, looking over at Rob, and looked like he felt sorry for him," the source says.

Earlier in the day, Pattinson did his best at cracking jokes with Jon Stewart during a taping of The Daily Show.
