Shia LaBeouf has gone a little weird lately, so who better than a former friend to point out how silly he is being.

Emile Hirsch and Shia LaBeouf are apparently not friends anymore, and Hirsch took the opportunity of LaBeouf's meltdown to mock him.

LaBeouf's recent eccentricities began when he was accused of plagiarizing his film from a comic book writer. He later apologized, but soon reacted on Twitter. On Jan. 13, he tweeted, "I AM NOT FAMOUS ANYMORE." He tweeted the same message many more times for the next month. On Feb. 9, he showed up to the premiere of Nymphomaniac with a paper bag on his head saying the same words.

LaBeouf's weirdness only started there. Earlier on the 9th, he walked out of a news conference after answering only one question. A reporter in Berlin asked him about being in a film with so many sex scenes, and he responded, "When the seagulls follow the trawler, it's because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea. Thank you very much."

The quote was from French soccer player Eric Cantona, and LaBeouf failed to give him credit for that one too.

But the fun really started with actor Emile Hirsch. The brand-new dad started tweeting a string of messages on Wednesday, Feb. 12, that were obviously a response to the media attention LaBeouf has been garnering later.


LaBeouf has not yet commented on Hirsch's messages (at least not publicly), but you can assume he probably will soon. He is currently in Los Angeles for his art exhibit called #IAMSORRY.
