How far are you willing to go for a role? Shia LaBeouf claims he sent a sex tape to notorious director Lars von Trier to secure his role in NYMPHOMANIAC, a film that promises to be so wild that it will come in both a hardcore and a softcore version. He says he’s willing to do whatever it takes to make the film a success… and we started thinking about the long and illustrious history not just of sex tapes, but sex tapes as cinematic devices. Luckily for us (and you), THE ORGASM DIARIES airs Saturday at midnight, and we assembled a little list to, ah, get you in the mood.
We never thought we’d say this, but we feel kind of bad for Jennifer Lopez. Apparently she made a sex tape of sorts — there was no actual sex in it — with her first ex-hubby on their honeymoon back in 1997, and now he’s shopping it around. J.Lo fought to stop him, but an L.A. judge recently ruled that she had no case against him. Which means he can now sell to the highest bidder.
When we read the horrifying news that there’s a John Edwards sex tape out there, we wondered, yet again, when celebrities will realize that the only way to guarantee your sex tape won’t leak is not to make it. But we guess that as long as egotistic, power-drunk celebs continue to think they can get away with cheating on their spouses, they’ll also think they can get away with making private sex tapes. However, we’d like to speak up in defense of all the poor innocent citizens (like, um, us) who will have trouble sleeping tonight, just at the thought that we might someday accidentally click on a link that shows us John Edwards’ O-face. For the love of god, please let us be spared that. In fact, while we’re making our plea, here are the top 10 sex tapes — whether real or imaginary — that we really, really, really don’t want to see.
John Edwards and his kooky toe-ring-wearing mistress Rielle Hunter.
Anything involving Hugh Hefner that was shot in the last four decades. Actually, anything starring Hef, ever.
