Shia LaBeouf to Have Real Sex in Next Film
French Actress Charlotte Gainsbourg Co-Stars
Shia LaBeouf has traded cold robots for hot human skin. In a new film from controversial director Lars Von Trier, the actor will have real, unsimulated sex scenes.
LaBeouf, 26, says in a new interview with MTV that his next film, Nymphomaniac, will feature authentic sex scenes. That means real passion, real emotion ... and real penetration.
"It is what you think it is," LaBeouf said during the interview. "There's a disclaimer at the top of the script that basically says, we're doing [the sex] for real. And anything that is 'illegal' will be shot in blurred images. But other than that, everything is happening."
Directed by Lars Von Trier, he of Melancholia and "I understand Hitler" fame, the film will follow a woman (Charlotte Gainsbourg) on her lifelong journey of sexual awakening. The film co-stars Nicole Kidman and Willem Dafoe, though we hope LaBeouf's sex scenes are not with the latter.
Nymphomaniac is just the latest step in LaBeouf's transformation from Disney comedian to big budget robot fighter to indie eccentric. In June he appeared fully nude in a bizarre, beautiful music video for Icelandic band Sigur Ros.
