Matt Damon has some risqué scenes in his new film ‘Behind the Candelabra’. In a January issue of Playboy magazine [via the Gossip Girls], Damon spoke of appearing nude in the film, saying, “Normally I’d say no to nudity, but I just did a lot of it playing the long-term partner of Liberace, Scott Thorson, in 'Behind the Candelabra. I mean, it’s tastefully done…But this movie’s not going to be for everyone.'”
Damon co-stars with Michael Douglas in the film, and said they drew up their love scenes in the film like ‘football plans’. He spoke of their kissing scenes, saying, “Michael was a wonderful kisser. My concerns ended up mattering a lot less once we were filming."
In real life, of course, Damon has been happily married for quite a while now and is happy to remain that way. He says, "The narrative about me kind of goes, ‘He’s a boring married guy,’ which is great, because I don’t get any of that other stuff like Brad Pitt and George Clooney do. People think I’m kind of vanilla and they leave me alone to work, have an actual private life and be a husband and dad."
The film, ‘Behind the Candelabra’, is about the life of celebrated pianist Liberace, who Michael Douglas plays. The film was made by HBO, and will screen on TV in 2013.
