Mia Goth felt the sex scenes in 'Nymphomaniac' came "naturally" and got very deep into her character
Mia Goth says her 'Nymphomaniac' sex scenes came "naturally".
The 19-year-old actress - who plays P opposite real-life boyfriend Shia LaBeouf and Charlotte Gainsbourg in Lars Von Trier's controversial new movie - immersed herself in the character so never worried about any of the raunchy scenes she had to shoot in her debut role.
She told ID magazine: "I knew I had to give myself to it, but I'm a rookie - I'd never done this before. I decided to be P. Any situation I was in, I'd imagine what would P do. Throughout the whole of 'Nymphomaniac', and even now, P never died. I became her.
"P had never known love, so she mistakes everything for sexual love. I was very deep into that character, so the sex scenes came naturally. It helped that Charlotte's a girl, so we both knew what we were doing."
Despite the raunchy subject matter, Mia insists she would have done "anything" the director asked of her.
She said: "I was like a little kid [on set]. But I just felt so hungry. I would have done anything Lars asked. I didn't have fear because I trusted him."
