So what exactly does it mean to have “real sex” in this movie? It depends who you ask.
“There’s a disclaimer at the top of the script that basically says we’re doing it for real. Everything that is illegal, we’ll shoot in blurred images. Other than that, everything is happening,” Shia told MTV back in August.
On the contrary, co-star Stellan Skarsgard is singing a different turn and thwarting any high hopes of seeing Shia in action!
“When we call this a porno, it’s meant ironically but irony doesn’t work well in print,” Stellan told The Hollywood Reporter.”The film is sexually explicit but, believe me, it will be a very, very bad wanking movie.”
Stellan also said “body doubles” and “visual effects” will be used. (Boo!)
Shia revealed how he landed the role saying, “I sent him [the director] videotapes of me and my girlfriend having sex and that’s how I got the job. I don’t know what it’s gonna be until I get out there. I know he’s a very dangerous director; I know we’re trying to do something different. It’s not your typical film.”
Two versions of the film, a character study of a self-diagnosed 50-year-old sex addict, will reportedly be shot: one a pornographic cut, and the other a soft core edition.
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Should Shia do ALL the sex scenes himself?
