Shia LaBeouf Shared Personal Sex Tapes With Lars von Trier [VIDEO]

As of late, nothing Shia LaBeouf does can shock us.

The former mainstream actor, starring in blockbusters such as ‘Transformers’ and ‘Eagle Eye’, recently announced his plans to abandon big studio productions in Hollywood. He appeared stark naked in a Sigur Ros music video, admitted to taking acid to prepare for a scene in the upcoming film ‘The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman’ and drank moonshine while filming ‘Lawless’.

During an interview with Chelsea Handler on her popular late night show, ‘Chelsea Lately’, the actor shared the lengths he took to secure a role in Lars von Trier’s ‘Nymphomaniac’.

"I sent him videotapes of me and my girlfriend having sex and that's how I got the job," LaBeouf jokingly told Handler.

"I don't know what it's gonna be until I get out there. I know he's a very dangerous director; I know we're trying to do something different. It's not your typical film."

Lars von Trier is releasing two versions of ‘Nymphomaniac’; softcore and harcore.

In an interview with MTV, LaBeouf suggested that he would be willing to have real sex on camera, if that’s what was required.

There's a disclaimer at the top of the script that basically says we're doing it for real," he told MTV "Everything that is illegal, we'll shoot in blurred images. Other than that, everything is happening."
