Shia LaBeouf laughed off, but didn't deny, Chelsea Handler's questions about rumors he's contracted to perform in a live sex scene for Danish filmmaker Lars von Trier's upcoming production, Nymphomaniac.

"Where are we going Chelsea, what's the deal?" the spirited 26-year-old joked.

"I read somewhere that you're gonna have to have real sex on this movie sex on camera, which I think happens on a lot of movie sets," Handler told him.

"I don't know what it's gonna be…I will when I get out there, I know Lars is a very dangerous director," Shia said. "I know we're trying to do something different."

Asked if he had to audition for von Trier, Shia joked, "I sent videotapes to him of me and my girlfriend having sex and that's how I got the job!"

As we previously reported, LaBeouf, who showed full-frontal nudity in a music video for director Alma Har’el earlier this year, is getting grief from girlfriend Karolyn Pho about the role.

"Karolyn doesn’t want him having sex with somebody else -- simple," a source close to the couple told RadarOnline.com. "She’s begged Shia to ask Lars if it’s possible to make the scenes appear real, rather than shoot them real."

Chelsea Lately airs on E! weeknights at 11/10c.
