LaBeouf to shoot real sex scenes?

Shia LaBeouf has revealed that he is "terrified" about the prospect of filming explicit scenes for his latest movie.
The former Transformers star has signed up for controversial Danish director Lars von Trier's Nymphomaniac, about a woman's sexual adventures. Two versions of the film will be made, with one more explicit than the other.
Shia told MTV News: "[The movie] 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."
The 26-year-old said the filmmaker "is very dangerous".
He added: "He's the most dangerous dude that I've ever showed up for. I'm terrified. I'm so terrified, which is why I have to go. We'll see what happens."
So far there is no information about Shia's role, although it has been reported that the film will also star Charlotte Gainsbourg and Stellan Skarsgard.
Willem Dafoe and Nicole Kidman have also been linked to roles in Nymphomaniac, which is scheduled to start production in September in Germany.
