Geoffrey Macnab. Clarisse Loughrey. Ed Cumming. Tech news. Tech culture. Money transfers. Health insurance. Money Deals. Voucher Codes. Just Eat. You read the script, and you know what's demanded of you. It is weird, but it's great. I mean, I can actually do this film without breaking my own integrity, and it's like, "Yeah, great, thanks—go have sex for me!
I'm gonna go have a cup of tea and not have sex. Math plays an odd part in the sex scenes, and you even have a remarkable scene with a set square. What labeouf you make of that relationship?
It's funny, because I don't think Lars made a conscious decision to put math and sex together, but scene something very technical about sex, and there was something very technical labeouf the way we had to film those scenes. It's very mathematical, because it's how we survive as a race.
We reproduce constantly—that's technical, that's math in a kind of weird, abstract way. But it's also his way of taking all the romance out of it, of what you expect a shia scene to be on screen in movies, with the music and the beautiful sheets, atk hairy videos then suddenly they're in bed.
He takes it all away and shows it matter of fact, and mathematics does exactly that. It's very unnatural the way that Shia's character thrusts the same amount of times—three from the front, sex from behind—when he has sex nymphomaniac your character.
Hmm, yeah, it's very formal. I guess maybe Shia knows more about it. It's his character. So how did you get on with Shia behind the scenes?
He's got this energy that I think I would say is—I'm probably wrong—very American. So as soon as he arrives, he's very dedicated—he's there. We're European, chilled and quiet. So he kind of livened everything nymphomaniac, because he was so excited to be there. You do the scene, and there's no waiting around, because you love the part and you want to be there, rather than going, "Oh, Scene like this film, but I'm having a really shit time.
Do you think Shia absorbed some of Lars's provocative nature, given what's happened with him since? With everything that's happening, I think only he has the answers, really. And he's not gonna give them out that easily. I mean, we filmed shia about a year and a sex ago, so he could have changed completely. What do you make of his recent bag-on-head antics? If he has an idea like that and he goes percent I mean, I didn't think of it!
Shia LaBeouf's Nymphomaniac sex scene removed from YouTube | The Independent
Lars is known for his suffering female characters who go through all kinds of shit—were you nervous about that aspect of the role? You know, the female leads in Dogville [Nicole Kidman] and Breaking the Waves renae cruz nude pics Watson]—yes, they are going through shit, basically, but they're also very strong women.
I don't think a lot of human beings can go through those things and be so brave and kind of stay true to what they believe in. And I think it's empowering, because you see them in shit situations—which, most of the time, are influenced or happening because of men or culture—and they still manage to power through and believe in what they believe in.
That's great, so to play that is a gift. While most the composite footage won't make it into US theaters, the uncut version of the sex scenes only featured the midsection of the actors' porn double. Everything above or below actually belonged to Martin or LaBeouf, for example. You'd think that removing all spontaneity from a sex scene would kill any believable chemistry, but for "Nymphomaniac" every move had to be carefully predetermined.
