Matt Damon Will Be Nude 'A Lot' in Liberace Movie
Get ready to see a lot more of Matt Damon. The actor tells Playboy he filmed nude scenes for Behind the Candelabra, the upcoming HBO biopic, in which he portrays Scott Thorson, the paramour of late entertainer Liberace, played by Michael Douglas.
"Normally I'd say no to nudity, but I just did a lot of it playing the long-term partner of Liberace," the 42-year-old father of four reveals, when asked by Stephen Rebello how raising a family has affected his film choices. "I mean, it's tastefully done."
Damon says neither he nor Douglas had any reservations about tackling such complex gay characters. "We both have a lot of gay friends, and we were not going to screw this up or bullshit it," It wasnít the most natural thing in the world to do, though. Like, for one scene, I had to come out of a pool, go over to Michael, straddle him on a chaise longue and start kissing him. And throughout the script, itís not like I kiss him just once. We drew it up like a football plan." Damon, ever the gentleman, says Douglas was a "wonderful kisser," but refrains from making any pitcher-catcher cracks.
