Shia Labeouf Will Have Sex ‘For Real’ in Lars von Trier’s Nymphomaniac

19 August 2012 9:30 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

These days, Shia Labeouf is busy dusting up his his post-Transformers acting credentials, first by method-drinking for Prohibition-era Lawless, then appearing nude in Sigur Rós' latest artsy short, and now telling MTV News that he's ready to perform real sex for Lars Von Trier's newest project, the aptly-named Nymphomaniac. Nymphomaniac 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. As some have noted, and Labeouf himself acknowledged, this isn't the first movie to try such a stunt — Patrice Chéreau's 2001 film Intimacy broke this particular cinematic sex barrier first.

Tribeca, the New York trendoid-magnet, has just started, and Cannes, the swanky Cote d'Azur schmoozathon, has reared its finely contoured head on the horizon. The UK is even getting in on the action, with the much-anticipated arrival next week of Sundance London, an offshoot of Robert Redford's indie-maven event in Park City, Utah.

Sundance London is an example of that industry buzzword "diffusion", whereby name events set up franchises overseas. Tribeca has been doing it since 2009 in Qatar, co-organising the Doha film festival. It's a byproduct of »

'Intimacy' star Kerry Fox: 'I don't regret real on-screen sex'

5 January 2012 2:23 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Kerry Fox has said that she has no regrets about her unsimulated sex scene in Intimacy. The Cloudstreet actress starred opposite Mark Rylance in Patrice Chéreau's 2001 film based on Hanif Kureishi's novel. Asked by Metro whether she regretted a real sex scene in the film, Fox asked if the interviewer had ever seen it. "Well you better watch it," she said on hearing that the journalist had not. "Then you'd know I absolutely have no regrets and it's one of the best pieces of work I've ever done." Of her previous claim that had she worn (more) »
