Shia LaBeouf Might Have Real Sex In Next Movie, Stupid Or Worth Seeing?

Shia LaBeouf may have risen to fame playing relatively conventional characters in audience-friendly works, but in recent years, heís done just about everything in his power to distance himself from that image. A few months back, that quest convinced him to disrobe in Sigur Rosí absurd new video, and now, itís apparently taking him even crazier places.
The actor recently boarded Lars Von Trierís new erotic drama Nyphomaniac, and the early buzz is LaBeouf may be having real sex with at least one of his co-stars for the role. Thereís no word on how LaBeoufís girlfriend might feel about him sticking it somewhere else for his art, but hereís what the actor told MTVÖ
"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."
Apparently, LaBeouf finds the prospect of working with Von Trier on this movie dangerous, and since not many prospects have the potential to push him in such a direction, he feels like he needs to take the journey and do whatever it is the director asks.
On the one hand, itís pretty noble that LaBeouf has eschewed the easy, big budget event films to work on projects he finds more intellectually satisfying. On the other hand, itís kind of insulting that he thinks fucking someone on screen is a more worthy use of his time than making movies most people would actually be interested in seeing.
I think LaBeouf is an awesome actor, but Iím not sure I can defend this career choice. What do you think? Does this sound like pretentious BS or legitimate art? Let us know your thoughts by voting in the poll belowÖ
