Shia LaBeouf Says He Sent Director Lars von Trier His Sex Tape

When actor Shia LaBeouf went on "Chelsea Lately" this week to promote "Lawless," the talk show host couldn't resist asking him a few questions about his next role in the upcoming Lars von Trier film "Nymphomaniac."

LaBeouf explained how he got the role: "I sent videotapes of me and my girlfriend having sex and that's how I got the job."

We would assume he was joking, but it was hard to tell with his delivery (and the clip we watched is cut off almost immediately after he says it). Neither E! nor The New York Daily News seem sure either, and we don't blame them since LaBeouf seems to be at a point in his career where he's ready to do pretty much the opposite of whatever you'd expect from a big-budget movie star.

Earlier this month, LaBeouf said that he was prepared to do whatever von Trier asked him to do for the role, including having unsimulated sex on screen.
