Jerry O'Connell Is Also Sorry, Books Art Space Next to Shia LaBeouf
Shia LaBeouf's apology-driven performance art piece is getting its own parody -- very close by.
Actor Jerry O'Connell opened up his own pop-up art show on Beverly Boulevard at Artspace Warehouse that riffs on the Transformers actor's #IAmSorry piece. Titled #IAmSorryToo, the project is affiliated with Funny or Die, the actor's publicist Nicki Fioravante told THR.
By 3:40 p.m, O'Connell had finished his performance, said Artspace Warehouse employee Maggie Devers, who added that the piece was a one-day-only event. A Funny or Die rep said that there would be a video component to the stunt.
LaBeouf's #IAmSorry performance art piece followed his appearance on the Berlin Film Festival red carpet for the premiere of Lars von Trier's Nymphomaniac wearing a paper bag on his head emblazoned with the words "I Am Not Famous Anymore."
THR visited LaBeouf's gallery project on Tuesday, finding the actor seated silently at a wooden table with what appeared to be the same paper bag over his head.
