Shia Labeouf - Shia LaBeouf sent penis pictures to land Nymphomaniac role
Shia LaBeouf says he got his 'Nymphomaniac' role because he didn't hesitate when he was asked to send in pictures of his penis to the production team.
Shia LaBeouf sent pictures of his penis to land his role in 'Nymphomaniac'.
The actor was forced to send director Lars Von Trier's production team close-up images of his manhood before being deemed suitable for the raunchy flick's numerous sex scenes.
He joked in a video interview by the film's Zentropa Productions: ''The first info we got - and I'll never forget this because my entire team reacted with such fear - the first request from the production end, not Lars, was for pictures of my penis.''
Shia - who stars opposite Charlotte Gainsbourg and Stellan Skarsgard in the upcoming risqué drama about a woman's erotic journey from birth to the age of 50 - impressed Lars with his speedy response to the request and believes his fearless attitude landed him the job.
He added: ''Lars goes, 'Send him the letter. The letter was, 'Are you game?' I guess the first test was, 'Let's time how long it takes this motherf****r to send his d**k over the Internet.' ''
''It was like 20 minutes; they were like, 'Alright, kid's ready.'''
Shia, 27, even went one step further by sending over no-holds barred videos of him engaged in intimate acts with his girlfriend.
He previously said: ''I sent videotapes of me and my girlfriend having sex and that's how I got the job.''
