That, it seems, is something of an understatement. He knew he'd be out of his comfort zone, but was nevertheless unprepared for Von Trier's working methods. Also, he'd arrived halfway through the film, and felt a little alienated.

With Lars, you literally get to the set and it's: 'Action! Because I have no idea what I'm doing. For the last few years I've been working with very conventional film-makers. I'm used to rehearsals, finding beats and positions with directors. Lars doesn't do any of that.
A bit nymphomaniac
He records you not knowing what you're doing, to a degree. I hadn't said hello to Charlotte Gainsbourg before I started hitting her in the face. I didn't even say hello to her. I really didn't, I swear to God, I didn't say a word to Charlotte Gainsbourg the entire time we were making that film.
When they said, 'OK everyone, this was Jamie's last day, he's wrapped, that's him done on Nymphomaniac ,' and everyone gives a little round of applause, in my very short goodbye speech I said, 'Charlotte, I have no idea who you are but I'm sure you're a lovely person.

And I walked out without saying hello to her because I felt so embarrassed. Was filming in such an alien environment psychologically tough? I was being asked to do things that weren't particularly comfortable, like drop some coins into a glove then smack her in the face a few times.
That is a weird day at work. It's a weird experience. But it's part of the character, and you somehow manage to justify in your head that it's what you're supposed to do. Now, he did ask me to do things that I said I wouldn't do.
I didn't want to do them. Like what?
