Shia LaBeouf To Have Actual Sex On Screen

Shia LaBeouf is definitely one of Hollywood’s most outspoken and rebellious actors. The 26-year-old actor has no problem criticizing directors he’s worked with like Steven Spielberg on Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull and calling out his famous hookups including Megan Fox and Rihanna. After a few bad experiences on big budget films, LaBeouf has vowed never to do another blockbuster studio movie again. Based on his latest movie role, he’s definitely keeping true to his word.

A few months ago, Shia showed off his “labeouf” in a music video for Sigur Ros. Now he’s going one step further and doing the actual deed for the aptly-titled The Nymphomaniac. No simulated sex here, but full on raging sexual intercourse. Lars Von Trier who wrote the amazing Dancer in The Dark starring Bjork is helming the project. While Labeouf won’t be the first to have sex for the silver screen, he’ll definitely be the most famous.


The Nymphomaniac is about a sexually voracious woman played by Charlotte Gainsbourg. Reportedly, the film will be filmed in two versions, explicit and a more theater-friendly R rating. Also involved in the project are Willem Dafoe, Nicole Kidman and Stellan Skarsgard. All of them have worked with Von Trier previously and have no problem with nudity based on their prior film choices. I wonder if any of them are on board to film an un-simulated sex scene like Shia.

“There’s a disclaimer at the top of the script that basically says, ‘We’re doing it for real,’” revealed LaBeouf to MTV News. “Anything that is ‘illegal’ will be shot in blurred images. But other than that, everything is happening….It’s going to be a wild movie, man. It’s going to be a wild movie.”

If Labeouf goes through with it, he’ll definitely be the most famous mainstream actor to perform actual sexual acts on film. The most notable person that I can recall, that’s previously filmed an actual sex scene is Chloe Sevigny. The Big Love actress performed fellatio on Vincent Gallo in 2004’s The Brown Bunny. Sevigny sure loves to give head. Google it, if you’re curious to check it out.

Would you be more inclined or less inclined to see Shia LaBeouf in The Nymphomaniac if actual sex was shown? I hate to admit it, but for me that would be the main attraction. That said, with Lars Von Trier directing it I’m definitely checking it out since I’m a fan of his work. One person not on board with Shia’s new role is his girlfriend of almost two years. Karolyn Pho reportedly had a very public break down in the street a few days ago. I don’t blame her. I’m not sure I would want my man having sex for the entire world to see.
