Shia LaBeouf's disruptive behavior during a performance of "Cabaret" on Thursday — which led to his arrest at intermission — was baffling to many. But PR man Scott Gorenstein knew exactly what to do: He sent a DVD of the 1972 movie version of the musical, which stars his client Liza Minnelli, to the "Nymphomaniac" actor.
"I figured he may want to find out how it ends," Gorenstein told E! News.
After all, Minnelli did win an Oscar for her performance as Sally Bowles.
LaBeouf has made more headlines in recent years for his odd behavior than he has for his successful projects; since 2005 he's been arrested more than once for aggressive behavior or trespassing, and in 2008 he lost his license for a year when he was determined to have been driving drunk. Early this year he announced he was withdrawing from public life, then went on to disrupt a press conference at the Berlin Film Festival and turned up on the red carpet wearing a brown paper bag on his head on which was scrawled, "I am not famous anymore."
He was arraigned on Friday for this latest disturbance and released on his own recognizance. He will be back in court on July 24 to face charges of disorderly conduct, criminal trespassing and harassment.
