Actor Shia LaBeouf poses on the red carpet during a screening for the movie "The Company You Keep" at the 69th Venice Film Festival September 6, 2012.

Will Smith's son Jaden reportedly reached out to Shia LaBeouf following the actor's unusual behavior of late.

LaBeouf has sparked concern after displaying very unusual behavior recently, including his appearance at the premiere of his latest film "Nymphomaniac, Volume I" last week- the actor paired his tuxedo with a paper bag reading "I am not famous anymore" over his head at the event. The "Transformers" star held a one-man art show in Los Angeles on Sunday called "#IAMSORRY" where he sat in a room and refused to speak to or interact with anyone.

Over the weekend, 15-year-old Smith tried to attend to seemingly spontaneous art exhibition, but after failing to get in, the young star posted a message to LaBeouf via Twitter.

"I wanted in line today on Beverly Blvd to see [Shia LaBeouf] I never got to see him but I had a very important message to deliver," Smith wrote to his Twitter followers. "It was a message that only could be understood artist to artist."

It is believed that LaBeouf's art show involved viewers reading criticism aloud to the actor while he listens quietly, Reuters reported. Smith went on to take a supportive stance of the troubled 27-year-old actor, declaring his compassion and loyalty.

"I'm here for you I believe in what [you're] doing I'm here is you need a fellow insane person to talk to," the teen actor stated. "But I'm seriously here not like one of those 'I'm here for you's' that everybody says."

Smith's support arrives following LaBeouf's announcement that he is "retiring from all public life" after the backlash from him plagiarizing a script last year. In recent months, the actor's behavior has grown increasingly erratic. Even before he wore a paper bag over his head at the "Nymphomaniac" premiere last week, LaBeouf offered peculiar comments at a press conference for the film earlier the same day. Alongside co-stars Christian Slater, Stacy Martin, Stellan Skarshard, Uma Thurman and producer Louise Veth, the actor answered only one questions before suddenly exiting.

A reporter asked LaBeouf why he chose to star in a film with so many sex scenes, and the actor replied: "When the seagulls follows the trawler, it's because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea. Thank you very much," and then walked out.
