Shia LaBeouf isn't scared to show a little (or a lot) of skin, as he has shown with his increasingly sordid roles. After baring all for the Sigur Rós' music video for the song 'Fjögur Píanó,' before stripping off completely and getting steamy for the screen with his Nymphomaniac co-stars, Shia this time took to Twitter to flash his bits.
Charlie Countryman comes out next month
Sharing an image from his upcoming film, the rom-com meets action adventure Charlie Countryman, Shia told his followers to check out the upcoming film and gave them at least one reason to check it out with the racy image. Early on Sunday (hey what else are you going to do on a Sunday morning), 20 October, Shia uploaded the image to his Twitter account, along with the caption; "tune in, turn on, drop out - #CharlieCountryman 11/15."
The upcoming film will see the former Even Stevens child actor play a regular man who falls for a girl who "belongs" to a violent mob boss, whilst visiting the Romanian capital Bucharest after seeing a vision of his dead mother in a dream-like state. The actor thoroughly immersed himself in the role, even taking LSD to prepare himself for the character portrayal. Last year, Shia described his preparation for the role to Us Weekly and cited Sean Penn and his role in Dead Man Walking for inspiring his acting in the film. He said in an August 2012 interview, "There's a way to do an acid trip like Harold & Kumar, and there's a way to be on acid," before citing Penn's preparation for the 1995 film, when he "actually strapped up to that [electric] chair."
In his next role, Shia will be stripping off again for the Lars Von Trier film Nymphomaniac, in which a self-diagnosed nymphomaniac (played by Charlotte Gainsbourg) recalls her sexual experiences to the man who saves her after being found beaten and left for dead. A series of provocative posters for the film were released earlier this month. The film is the final part of von Trier's 'Trilogy of Depression' and will be released in Denmark on 25 December before being released throughout other parts of Europe. No US or UK date has been set for the erotic film.
