Actor Shia LaBeouf has revealed that part of his audition for Lars von Trier’s “Nymphomaniac” was to send in photos of his penis.
In an interview with von Trier’s Zentropa Productions, the 27-year-old made the revelation, saying the dick pic was a test of sorts to see how committed he was:
“The first info we got – and I’ll never forget this because my entire team reacted with such a fear – the first request on the production end, not from Lars, was pictures of my penis.
Lars goes, ‘Send him the [offer] letter. The letter was, ‘Are you game?’. I guess the first test was, ‘Let’s time how long it takes this motherf—er to send his d-ck over the internet.’ It was like 20 minutes. They were like, ‘All right, kid’s ready.'”
While von Trier saw the goods, audiences won’t as the two-part film features real sex between porn stars. Their actions are then digitally transferred onto the bodies of the film’s cast.
