Just because Shia LaBeouf appears completely nude in a new music video for Icelandic band Sigur Ros and has said he's willing to perform real sex acts in Lars Von Trier's upcoming film The Nymphomaniac, that doesn't mean he's going through an exhibitionist phase.
The 26-year-old actor says he's "not choosing to be naked all the time" and that he "didn't get into (acting) to be a porn guy."
"We were just playing characters," he explains.
Still, the eight-minute video for Sigur Ros's new single Fjogur Piano shows the Transformers star naked and caressing the bare breasts of his female co-star.
The actor says people have been responding well to the video so he feels "quite confident" about his performance.
LaBeouf does not get naked in his latest film Lawless, which is about a West Virginia moonshine business during the Prohibition era.
The film opens in the US on Wednesday.
