SHIA LABEOUF STORMS OUT OF NYMPHOMANIAC PRESS CONFERENCE AFTER QUOTING ERIC CANTONA...THEN ARRIVES AT PREMIERE UNDER A PAPER BAG

He claims he's retiring from public life after a series of bizarre outbursts. And Shia LaBeouf doesn't appear to have changed his mind - if his behavior yesterday is any indication. After arriving at the Nymphomaniac Volume I photocall Grand Hyatt Hotel in Berlin, Germany looking grubby and unkempt - and even missing a bottom tooth - Shia then left the press conference after answering just one question. Then, less than an hour later, he cleaned up for the film's premiere in a smart suit, but donned a paper bag over his head reading “I am not famous anymore.”

RUSSIAN OLYMPIC SNOWBOARDER RECEIVES THOUSANDS OF TEXTS AFTER WRITING HIS CELL PHONE NUMBER ON HIS HELMET

Here's hoping Russian snowboarder Alexey Sobolev has unlimited texting on his phone. Sobolev competed in slopestyle qualifying on Thursday with his cellphone number written on his helmet. It was his idea of trying to get through what he called the boredom of the athletes' village on the mountain. Sobolev says he has received more than 2,000 texts since then. “Most of the messages are good luck messages and messages from the girls,” Sobolev said.  “Some of the messages are not appropriate to read aloud.” Olympic rules prevent Sobolev from competing with his number on his helmet in the finals on Saturday. As far as he's concerned, his mission is already accomplished: “Everyone already knows my number.” His number is: +79250222285

CLINT EASTWOOD SAVES THE LIFE OF CHOKING GOLF DIRECTOR BY PERFORMING THE HEIMLICH

Clint Eastwood came to the rescue of a man that was choking while at a golf tournament in Pebble Beach, California on Wednesday. Eastwood was attending a volunteer party on the eve of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am when he noticed tournament director Steve John, 50, choking on a piece of cheese.  Eastwood quickly performed the Heimlich Manoeuver while at the Monterey Conference Center. The tournament director acknowledges that it was Clint's fast action that saved his life. “I was drinking water and eating these little appetizers, threw down a piece of cheese and it just didn't work,” Steve said Friday.  “I was looking at him and couldn't breathe. He recognized it immediately and saved my life.”

FURNITURE STORE OWNER GLAD TO LOSE $7 MILLION SUPER BOWL BET

A Super Bowl bet has cost a Houston furniture store owner $7 million after the Seahawks defeated the Broncos. Jim “Mattress Mack” McIngvale said that he would give a full refund to customers who spent $6,000 or more at Gallery Furniture in the two weeks leading up to the game and had their orders delivered by 5 p.m. on Sunday. When the Seahawks delivered a victory on Sunday, McIngvale confirmed he would deliver on his promise with an announcement on the company’s website declaring “Customers Win $7,000,000.” “The accountant is pulling his hair out this morning, but the customers are happy and that’s what’s most important,” McIngvale said. McIngvale says while the accountant initially told him he was “crazy” for making the bet, he is confident it will pay in the long run for his business. “It worked for making the customer say ‘This guy does what he says he’s going to do,’” McIngvale said. He said over 1,000 customers will receive on average $7,000 in refunds from the promotion. He plans to deliver the refunds during a celebratory party at the store on Feb. 17.

BRUNO MARS SUPER BOWL HALFTIME SHOW DRAWS LARGEST AUDIENCE EVER

Sorry, Madonna, but Bruno Mars has smashed your record. The Queen of Pop's 2011 Super Bowl halftime show had previously set an all-time viewing record of 114 million, but Bruno's show on Sunday, which also featured the Red Hot Chili Peppers, has bested it.  115.3 million viewers -- more than turned into the actual game itself -- caught the halftime show. By comparison, Beyonce's halftime show last year drew only 110.8 million viewers.

JENNIFER ANISTON VOTED OUR GLASSES STYLE ICON

Jennifer Aniston may be known for favoring the Little Black Dress on the red carpet, but it seems that her glasses come out top in the style stakes. The actress has been voted the top role model for wearing glasses as we move from the nerdy stereotypes to something a whole lot sexier. Eva Mendes came in close second in the poll, and if she can bag a man as hot as Ryan Gosling it's easy to see why she was voted. For men in specs, Michael Caine and Johnny Depp are the icons they most want to look like.

HUGH GRANT HAS SECRET SON WITH SWEDISH TV BOSS

Hugh Grant has become a father again for the third time, according to reports. The 53-year-old actor allegedly welcomed a baby boy into the world in September 2012 following a relationship with Swedish TV producer Anna Elisabet Eberstein. His arrival was just three months before the birth of his second child with lover Tinglan Hong, son Felix, according to The Sun. A source told the paper: “They were pregnant with Hugh’s children at the same time. It’s an unusual arrangement.” However, it is unclear whether Tinglan and Anna were aware of the fact they were both expecting Hugh’s child. Hugh's involvement with Anna's child was only revealed when his full name - Hugh John Mungo Grant - appeared on the birth certificate after it was re-registered in December 2013.
