The words in the post title can be filed in the “Things I Never Thought I’d Hear, Read, Say, Or Write” folder, but life is full of surprises and this is one of them.
Matt Damon recently chatted with Playboy about what it was like to kiss Michael Douglas in the their upcoming HBO biopic about Liberace called Behind the Candelabra, and according to 42-year-old actor, it went down better than he’d expected.
“Michael was a wonderful kisser,” praised Damon of his 68-year-old co-star.
In the film, Douglas plays the legendary piano player and Damon stars as his younger boyfriend.
In addition to the actors’ make out sesh, Damon also says he even agreed to do a nude scenes which you typically don’t see when watching one of his films. He explains, “Normally I’d say no to nudity, but I just did a lot of it … in ‘Behind the Candelabra’. I mean, it’s tastefully done … But this movie’s not going to be for everyone.”
Normally the thought of Damon getting it on with Douglas just wouldn’t do it for me, with these two actors, and the fact that it’s a biopic tagged on with the fact that it’s about Liberace makes this a must-see for me. Why HBO though when I don’t have it?!
