Shia LaBeouf has taken some career risks in the past, but he is putting it all on the line for Lars Von Trier's upcoming film, "The Nymphomaniac."
The 26-year-old actor told MTV News of the director, "He's the most dangerous dude I've ever shown up for. I'm terrified. It is what you think it is, it is Lars Von Trier making a movie about what he's making."
"The Nymphomaniac" reportedly focuses on one woman's (Charlotte Gainsbourg) exploration of her erotic desires, told from her husband's (Stellan Skarsgard) point of view. The film will also reportedly also star Nicole Kidman and Willem Dafoe.
"There's a disclaimer at the top of the script that basically says, we're doing it for real. And everything that is 'illegal' we'll shoot in blurred images. But other than that, everything is happening."
The controversial "Melancholia" director plans to release the film in two versions - explicit and censored. Meanwhile, LaBeouf said that he is willing to do "whatever's asked" of him.
The outspoken actor recently appeared completely nude in Icelandic band Sigur Ros' music video for their song "Fjogur piano." In the video, the actor is shown opposite actress Denna Thomsen as a destructive couple, doing drugs dancing, trashing a bedroom, admiring butterflies and reviewing their scars and wounds.
LaBeouf is best known for his role as Sam Witwicky in the "Transformers" franchise. He has also appeared in films like " Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull," "Eagle Eye" and "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps."
The actor got his start in the Disney channel family comedy, "Even Stevens." LaBeouf will appear opposite Robert Redford in the thriller, "The Company You Keep," which is slated for release on October 19, 2012.
LaBeouf will next appear opposite Tom Hardy and Jessica Chastain in the Depression-era bootlegger film "Lawless," which opens in theaters on August 29.
