Shia LaBeouf has joked that he won a role in his new movie The Nymphomaniac by sending the director a homemade sex tape.
The actor laughed off US chat show host Chelsea Handler’s questions regarding the reported live sex scenes he will film in Lars von Trier’s upcoming movie.
When quizzed on how he landed the role, the 26-year-old replied with a suitably shocking answer.
“I sent videotapes to him of me and my girlfriend having sex and that’s how I got the job!” Stuff.co.nz quoted her as saying on Chelsea Lately.
The spirited star hinted that his role in the Danish filmmaker’s controversial production is still something of a mystery to him.
LaBeouf did promise that viewers will see something original when ‘The Nymphomaniac’ is released.
“I don’t know what it’s gonna be… I will when I get out there, I know [Lars is] a very dangerous director, I know we’re trying to do something different,” he added.
