Rachel McAdams is cute as can be as a bridesmaid.

Rachel McAdams won women over by playing a mean teen queen in "Mean Girls" and tugging at their heartstrings in the tearjerker "The Notebook," but will her female fans flock to see her new movie "Passion," which features the actress in a lesbian sex scene?

The movie directed by master of sex-pense Brian De Palma is making its debut at the ongoing Venice Film Festival, and its two famous female stars' steamy scenes will likely garner plenty of press.

The trailer makes the movie look like "50 Shades of Grey" featuring two women - there's sex, masks, and someone who desires dominance. However, in "Passion" that someone is a manipulative businesswoman, and it looks like she runs into trouble when her female subordinate decides that she doesn't want to be toyed with anymore. "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" actress Noomi Rapace stars as Rachel's lover/rival.

Rachel will also be starring alongside Ben Affleck in another Venice Film Festival movie with racy scenes -- Terrance Malick's romantic drama "To the Wonder" features nudity and sex.

But she's the only star pushing her boundaries with racy roles. Here's a rundown of a few other actor and actresses starring in movies with scenes that some might find shocking:

Shia LaBeouf

This former Disney star has revealed that his upcoming Lars von Trier movie "The Nymphomaniac" will feature real sex scenes. Shia said that he's "terrified" of filming the flick about a woman who "discovers her hidden erotic desires." It sounds like the "50 Shades of Grey" movie is going to have some competition.

Nicole Kidman

Nicole is also starring in "The Nymphomaniac," and perhaps it shouldn't be surprising that a movie with real sex doesn't scare her - she didn't shy away from urinating on Zac Efron in "The Paperboy," after all. In the movie that made a "splash" at Cannes, she plays the lover of a death row inmate, while Efron plays a young man who falls for her. In one scene he gets stung by a bunch of jellyfish, and Nicole's character decides to help ease the pain by peeing on him. Here's what she told V Magazine about the scene: "I didn't think [it] was that weird, because I was in character... All of that made total sense to me. I just went for it and didn't overthink it." The movie will hit theatres in October.

Helen Hunt

This beloved actress will be returning to movies in "The Sessions," a Sundance Film Festival favorite that featured the "Mad About You" star playing a very controversial kind of sex therapist -- as a "surrogate," her character actually sleeps with her patients (and yes, there will be nude scenes). "The Sessions" is actually based on a true story and focuses on the surrogate's quest to help a paraplegic (John Hawkes) lose his virginity. The movie is already getting Oscar buzz, so it's no surprise that it's being released during Academy Awards season on October 26.

James Franco

Shia isn't the only guy starring in a movie with sex scenes that will likely cause controversy. Franco recently teamed up with gay art-porn director Travis Mathews to create an art film about the 40 minutes of explicit gay sex scenes that were cut from the 1980 movie "Cruising." The end result will feature graphic gay sex scenes, and the final cut will be revealed sometime early next year.

Leonardo DiCaprio

Leo is also set to bare it all while playing real-life stockbroker Jordan Belfort in Martin Scorsese's "Wolf of Wall Street." According to a set insider, the flick will feature an orgy involving four guys and two girls (top that, Gordon Gekko).

So are you looking forward to any of these films, or do you think that they go too far?
