There's so much explicit sex in Lars von Trier's racy Nymphomaniac that one of its stars, Christian Slater, doesn't feel self conscious about simply showing his "heinie" (his word) onscreen.

Shia LaBeouf's bizarre behavior in Germany over the weekend left some wondering if there is cause for concern.
The actor – who's promoting his new film, Nymphomaniac, at the Berlin International Film Festival – arrived sporting a shaved-down tooth and disheveled appearance for the cast panel, answering only one question before quickly exiting the room.
When asked how it felt to be in a movie with such explicit sex scenes, LaBeouf took a drink of water and said, "When the seagulls follow the trawler, it's because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea."
The actor, 27, then thanked the audience, got up and left.

Christian Slater was a Gen X heartthrob on the fast track in the 80s, before publicly struggling with substance abuse in the 90s. Now the self-described sober father of two – the star of NBC's My Own Worst Enemy – has reclaimed something lost along the way: a high school education.
"High school was not something that I remotely took seriously, and now I have got these kids," Slater, 39, tells Parade magazine in its Oct. 12 issue. "I obviously care for them to get an education, and I want them to take it seriously, so I am going to have to do something."
The actor has two children with ex-wife Ryan Haddon – Jaden, 9, and Eliana, 7. Slater says he swallowed his pride and joined a classroom of much younger students to study for the three-day GED test. Doing so meant facing one of his greatest fears: math.
