Kirsten Dunst weighed in on rumors that the sex scenes in Lars von Trier‘s upcoming film ‘Nymphomaniac’ would be real.
Dunst starred in von Trier’s last film, ‘Melancholia,’ so she is familiar with the director and his style. She predicts that there will be no actual on-screen sex between actors.
“Lars isn’t going to make them have sex for real,” Dunst told MTV, when asked about the rumors. “I don’t think he’s going to make his actors do that, no.”
‘Nymphomaniac’ star Shia LaBeouf has made it clear that he is willing to go all out and do whatever it takes to make the film realistic.
“It is Lars von Trier, making a movie about what he’s making. For instance, 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,” LaBeouf told MTV.
Dunst, who isn’t involved in ‘Nymphomaniac,’ isn’t so sure. “I know Lars,” she said. “I mean, if Shia wants to do it Lars won’t be like, ‘No,’ but Lars isn’t someone who would be like, ‘You have to do that.'”
Alongside LaBeouf, ‘Nymphomaniac’ also stars Charlotte Gainsbourg, Christian Slater, and Stellan Skarsgard. The film follows the sexual life of Gainsbourg’s character over 50 years.
