Ever since it was revealed that Shia LaBeouf will have to commit to real-life sex scenes for his role in Lars von Trier's 'Nymphomaniac' everyone's been speculating on how the actor is feeling about his daring new role. Now the star has spoken out on sex in movies.
It was revealed earlier this month that the 'Transformers' actor would reportedly have to have real sex whilst filming the controversial new film from von Trier. Shia doesn't know what all the fuss is about though as he insists to USA Today he knows exactly what he's getting himself into.
Shia admits to the US paper that contrary to opinion, he does have limits when it comes to his roles, saying:
"There are rules,"
"I have ethics, I'm not completely out of my mind. But I don't think there's anything wrong with sex. Sex is beautiful if it's done right. And I wouldn't just do it for no reason."
"Sex is different than love, and there is a separation, and that middle gap is what the movie's about."
He's certainly got some guts! Shia also talked about his career turn, swapping big commercial successes like the Transformers franchise for independent projects:
"All I'm really trying to say in the most politically sensible way is, 'Thank you so much for giving me the opportunities, I would just like to make movies about people now.' That's it,"
"If I could give the money back and get all the credibility in the world that I'm seeking, I would do it tomorrow. In a heartbeat."
According to Books and Review Rob was quoted as saying: “I love Lars’ films. I think he’s great. It’s bold and brave. Shia did that [nude scene] video already … and would ‘do anything’ for a part.”
