Shia LaBeouf's girlfriend Karolyn Pho had a very public meltdown in Los Angeles over the weekend, after the 'Transformers' actor revealed that he would be filming 'real' sex scenes in Lars Von Trier's forthcoming indie movie 'Nymphomaniac', reports the New York Daily News.
The 23-year-old was seen breaking down in tears on a public street just days after Shia Labeouf shocked the movie world with the news. Despite being visibly upset during a 15-minute exchange with the actor, she later denied that 'Nymphomaniac' was the cause of their problems, saying, "It's none of anybody's business. Everything is fine with us. It was nothing affiliated with his movie.We're normal people who have normal lives". The incident ended in Los Angeles with Pho wrapping an arm around her boyfriend while he sat on the curb smoking a cigarette. Earlier this week, he had told MTV News that director Von Trier - an auteur known for sexual explicitness - will shoot actual sex on-screen. He said, "He's (Von Trier) very dangerous, you know. He's like the most dangerous dude that I've ever showed up for. I'm terrified. I'm so terrified, which is why I have to go.There's a disclaimer at the top of the script that basically says, we're all doing it for real. And everything that is illegal, we'll shoot in blurred images, but other than that, everything is happening".
Von Trier's 'Nymphomaniac' will be split into two films - one softer version, and one more explicit. It will also star Charlotte Gainsbourg and Nicole Kidman, though it's not clear who will take part in the adult-scenes. Lars Von Trier's Nazi comments led to him being dubbed persona non grata at the Cannes Film Festival.
