The actor, 23, shot a steamy sex scene for a movie version of EL James’s erotic bestseller, Fifty Shades of Grey, according to The Wrap.

Director Gus Van Sant Arrested for DUI

Academy Award-nominated director Gus Van Sant was arrested Thursday in Portland, Ore., on a drunken driving charge.

Van Sant was pulled over and arrested at 1:48 a.m. Thursday after an officer noticed the headlights on Van Sant’s black Porsche SUV were not turned on, as was first reported by The Smoking Gun.

“His eyes were watery and red and glassy,” Portland police spokesman Sgt. Brian Schmautz tells PEOPLE. “His speech was slurred and he smelled of alcohol.”
