Evan Rachel Wood and director Fredrik Bond on Nov. 13 promoted their new film Charlie Countryman at a press event in New York City and along the way revealed "raunchy" takes that never made it to the final cut.

The film follows the story of Charlie Countryman (Shia LaBeouf) who meets and falls in love with Gabi (Wood), a Romanian girl whose father dies on the plane sitting by Charlie. Gabi is married to a thug and crime lord Nigel (Mikkelsen), and Charlie decides to fight him to protect Gabi and win her over. Things turn awry as the film moves along.

Bond makes his debut with the film, which is set in Bucharest and has been described as being stylistically surreal with brash and graphic elements, akin to Danny Boyle films Trainspotting and 28 Weeks Later.

In the same vein, the film also features some very graphic sex scenes between Wood and LaBeouf. When Wood was asked about that by the host of the evening she suggested that they were maybe not all that graphic.

"The sex scenes were actually raunchier," she said. "But the MPA has a problem with a woman receiving oral pleasure and they are okay with five heads being blown off."

She went on to talk about how she was very comfortable doing those sex scenes with LaBeouf, also saying that he was very professional.

The actress also spoke about working with her friend, LaBeouf, for the very first time, suggesting they had always been fans of each other but had never found the right opportunity to be involved in the same project.

"I've been trying to get into his projects and he has been trying to get into mine," she said.

She believes it never worked out because Charlie Countryman was meant to be the one.

Before being taken on for the role, Wood had to step in for a chemistry read with the actor. She reiterated that as it was an intense love story it was very important to make sure that the two could feed off of each other's energy and portray the romance convincingly. 

In the film LeBeouf's character seems to be more helplessly in love and sensitive, while Wood feeds a stand-offish attitude into their dynamic as lovers. As the host on Wednesday joked about how this was some kind of gender role reversal, Wood laughed and said that that was exactly why she took up the role.

"She is very self sufficient, she is not a damsel in distress," she said of her character.

Wood also gave LaBeouf a lot of credit for playing his part with sensitivity and not once being nervous about portraying such an emotionally vulnerable character.

"It's rare that you get to act with an actor like that," she said. "He is a sensitive, emotional guy...he goes really deep" she added, while suggesting that he was very focussed and was willing to go the distance.

It is also rumored that LaBeouf actually dropped acid for a drug scene in the film. When asked about that both Wood and Bond were not certain of the fact and chose not to confirm it but judging by whatever Wood said it seems like LaBeouf actually went the extra mile to make the scene realistic.

"If he did anything he did it to make it real," she said.

Wood also revealed that LaBeouf was not the kind to do too many drugs as he was so intense in real life anyway: "Shia hasn't done a lot of drugs before."

She also suggested that it didn't matter if he did, as nobody was hurt in the process and if it assisted in delivering a great performance, it made sense.
