WATCH: That Time Shia LaBeouf Emailed A Pic Of His Penis For A Job

When he’s not picking fights on Twitter with Lena Dunham, being accused of plagiarism, or warding off cease and desist letters, actor Shia LaBeouf is bragging about the time he emailed a photo of his penis to film director Lars von Trier.

While promoting his new film Nymphomaniac, the 27-year-old douche bag actor said: “The first info we got — and I’ll never forget this because my entire team reacted with such fear — the first request from the production end, not Lars, was for pictures of my penis.”

He continued, “Lars goes, ‘Send him the letter. The letter was, ‘Are you game?’ I guess the first test was, ‘Let’s time how long it takes this motherfucker to send his dick over the internet. It was like 20 minutes. They were like, ‘All right, kid’s ready.’”

Nymphomaniac is rumored to be over five hours long and is being released in two parts this spring. We can’t say we’ll be waiting in line to buy tickets, although we’d love to add Shia’s penis pic to our list of celebrity nude selfies.

Check out LaBouf’s full interview below… Or just fast forward to the parts where he talks about his penis. (1:37 and 8:33).

    The distribution company cut it down to four and are releasing it with a disclaimer at the front with a director’s cut coming out eventually.

    Easily found out by Googling.

    And he still got the part?

    I must confess I am at a complete loss to understand why Hollywood actors line up to work in a movie by Lars von Trier, who is the biggest windbag in the business, making overlong movies about overodd people. He’s had famous actresses walk zombie like through 3 hour epics on one set and long after he drives home a point goes on and on and on beating us over the head with it. He is the most boring Scandinavian filmmaker since Bergman. Both are boring boring boring.

    @jmmartin: Well, his movies are a lot more interesting than your comment. So there’s that.

  • JayHobeSound

    Von Trier doesn’t follow the American film formula which I think makes his movies interesting.

    I love Von Trier’s ‘Melancholia’. I can’t help it – it’s beautiful and creepy all at once.

    Not quite sure why Queerty is calling Shia a douche bag. Did I miss something? I think he’s hot, in a scruffy sort of way, and I’m a fan. What’s up with that Queerty?

  • Ottoman

    Couldn’t they have just watched the Sigur Ros video where he gets full frontal naked?

    @Harley: Do a quick Google search for Shia + plagiarism.

    The guy is a major douchnozzle.

    @Harley: My only complaint is that they didn’t use “giant douche bag”:

    On the Transformers franchise: “There are a lot of people that liked the second one, but I hated it. I just didn’t enjoy it. I thought we missed the mark. I got confused, I couldn’t see what the fuck was going on, you know with certain robots… I couldn’t decipher what was happening. There were storyline paths that I just wouldn’t have gone down.” Transformers had storylines?

    On dropping acid to be method for The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman: “There’s a way to do an acid trip like Harold & Kumar, and there’s a way to be on acid. What I know of acting, Sean Penn actually strapped up to that (electric) chair in Dead Man Walking. These are the guys that I look up to.” (Note: Sean Penn didn’t die that way in “Dead Man Walking” and Shia’s character in the film didn’t drop acid – he took ecstasy).

    On his mom: “Probably the sexiest woman I know is my mother. She’s an ethereal angel. Nobody looks like that woman. If I could meet my mother and marry her, I would. I would be with my mother now, if she weren’t my mother, as sick as that sounds.”

    On Justin Bieber: “He’s got this presence like Buddha. He’s like the young prince. Bieber is bomb. He’s like a 16-year-old Frank Sinatra.”

    On the ‘alleged’ plagiarism: “Authorship is censorship Should God sue me if I paint a river? Should we give people the death sentence for parking violations- You’ll not only have less parking violations but less DRIVERS”.

    More than eight minutes I don’t have to spare for this plagiarizing douche bag.

  • mz.sam

    Like it or not, Von Trier’s films are one thing. But Hollywood’s overrated bad boy LaBouf is a total train wreck. He needs to be put out for a premature retirement.
