USA Today interview with the outspoken Shia LaBeouf:
Then there’s Nymphomaniac, the Lars von Trier film LaBeouf just began shooting in Germany, which requires actors to engage in real sex (he says he’s game).
“There’s a way to do an acid trip like Harold & Kumar, and there’s a way to be on acid,” says LaBeouf, 26. “What I know of acting, Sean Penn actually strapped up to that (electric) chair in Dead Man Walking. These are the guys that I look up to.”
“Sometimes, it does get real,” says LaBeouf, thinking back to the drug-assisted day on set with Cannes’ 2012 best-actor winner, Mads Mikkelsen, under the direction of newcomer Fredrik Bond. “Too real for a (director) who’s trying to keep a diplomatic set.”
