Shia LaBeouf has described the sex scenes as the "real deal" in Lars von Trier's new "Nymphomaniac" film, in comments that will surprise many of his fans and further shows how Hollywood films are influencing a more promiscuous society.
It is unsure whether the Hollywood actor's words about the "real" sex scenes are to be taken at face value, but the star will feature in the Danish director's new film, which will be an erotic two-part drama. Production begins next month and LaBeouf has now come out to speak about the new drama. He has said that a disclaimer was included in the contract for the role basically saying "we're doing it for real."
He has said, "(The movie] is what you think it is. It is Lars von Trier, making a movie about what he's making. For instance, there's a disclaimer at the top of the script that basically says we're doing it for real. Everything that is illegal, we'll shoot in blurred images. Other than that, everything is happening," according to MTV.
The new film is set to document the life of a woman, played by Charlotte Gainsbourg, from her youth through to middle age. Stellan Skarsgard has also signed on for the film, and will play Gainsbourg's husband. Another high profile name believed to be associated with the film is Nicole Kidman.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, LeBeouf has said that he took the role in von Trier's new film because "he's dangerous." The 26 year old actor said, "Because (von Trier's) dangerous. He scares me. And I'm only going to work now when I'm terrified."
Labeouf shot to fame taking on starring roles in Transformers and Indiana Jones films. He is also set to been seen in new film "Lawless" which will also star Gary Oldman and Tom Hardy. John Hillcoat's "Lawless" is scheduled for release on Aug. 29, 2012.
He has also gained a role in Robert Redford's new film "In the Company You Keep." That film is directed by Redford, who also co-stars in the film alongside LaBeouf, and is scheduled to be shown at the upcoming Venice Film Festival and Toronto International Film Festival.
