Shia LaBeouf explained on "Chelsea Lately" how he got his role in director Lars Von Trier's forthcoming movie, "Nymphomaniac." Chelsea Handler was immediately interested in LaBeouf's claims that he may actually be having sex on camera for the film, as he told MTV the scripts called for.

LaBeouf admitted he's not 100% sure what will happen, but anything is possible. "I don’t know what it’s gonna be until I get out there, I know he’s a very dangerous director and I know we’re trying to do something different," he said.

He then went on to explain how he got the job in the first place. "I sent videotapes of me and my girlfriend having sex and that’s how I got the job," LaBeouf explained, flashing an "OK" sign to the crowd. But was he serious?

It was never clear if he was joking or not, but the claim, regardless of its veracity, is definitely capable of producing even more early buzz for the film.
