Weirdest head shot ever...
Shia LaBeouf says that as part of his audition for Nymphomaniac, he had to show a very different side of himself. LaBeouf revealed in a new interview to promote the film that he had to send pictures of his genitals to the production team behind the film, which sees him play an office worker who is part of the sexual progress of Charlotte Gainsbourg's lead role
LaBouef said, "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."
He added that he was attracted to the role because it was very different from what he usually plays, saying, "Previously in my career I'd been the everyman or the normal guy stuck in this extraordinary situation. Jerome was the opportunity to play a slimy, evil, blasphemous, mini-juggernaut of a man."
