The Tranformers star was attending a press conference for his new movie Nymphomaniac when he was asked a question about the sex scenes in the film.

LaBeouf responded to the question by storming out of the press conference in the exact style of Cantona after he quoted the Frenchman's famous line: "When the seagulls follow the trawler, it is because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea."

Cantona came out with the quote at a press conference back in 1995 after he was arrested for his infamous "kung-fu" kick against an abusive Crystal Palace supporter.

Amazingly, LaBoeuf didn't just repeat the line, he even taking in a sip of water for dramatic effect at the same point Cantona did.


Here's the original Cantona quote in all its glory.
