Shia LaBeouf Says He’ll Perform ‘Real’ Sex Scenes in Lars von Trier’s New Movie
According to the Lawless actor, he’s willing to do whatever controversial director Lars von Trier asks of him, even if it means actually having sex on camera.
“There’s a disclaimer at the top of the script that basically says, we’re all doing it for real,” LaBeouf reveals during an interview with MTV. “And everything that is illegal, we’ll shoot in blurred images, but other than that, everything is happening.”
How does he feel about the project?
“[Von Trier] is very dangerous, you know. He’s like the most dangerous dude that I’ve ever showed up for,” he says. “I’m terrified. I’m so terrified.”
“It’s going to be a wild movie,” he adds, smirking.
Von Trier is already known for pushing boundaries with his 2009’s Antichrist, which graphically depicts scenes of sex, masturbation and circumcision.
The famed filmmaker also made headlines when he infamously said that he “sympathize” with Adolf Hitler and professed to being a Nazi during a conference at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival.
However, LaBeouf isn’t without shocking moments of his own.
The actor recently slammed the major studio system, telling The Hollywood Reporter, “[They] give you the money, then get on a plane and come to the set and stick a finger up your a** and chase you around for five months.”
LaBeouf, who’s starred in blockbusters such as Transformers and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of Crystal Skulls in the past, also went full frontal for Sigur Ros’ “Fjogur Piano” music video earlier this year.
