HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — Actor Shia Labeouf will be in the buff next month when he reports for work on the set of acclaimed international filmmaker Lars von Trier controversial new film "The Nymphomaniac." 

The psycho-sexual drama follows a woman's (Charlotte Gainsbourg) erotic life from youth to age 50 as she vividly recounts her experiences to her husband (Stellan Skarsgard). While details about LaBeouf's character remain a mystery, the 26-year-old "Transformers" star has revealed what taking on the part requires.

In a video interview with MTV.com, LaBeouf described von Trier as "dangerous" and nervously confirmed that the film's sex scenes will be authentic. 

"It is what you think it is," he told MTV. "There's a disclaimer at the top of the script that basically says, we're doing it for real. And anything that is 'illegal' will be shot in blurred images, but other than that, everything is happening."

"The Nymphomaniac" is slated for release in 2013.
