‘Michael Douglas was a wonderful kisser,’ says Matt Damon

6a00d8341c630a53ef0147e36b64d7970b-450wiRelax, the former Bourne Supremacy star has not turned gay. He was just commenting on the role he and Michael Douglas played opposite each other on the set of their new movie, Behind the Candelabra, which is based on the true life story of the powerful and adored showman, Liberace and his gay lover, Scott Thorson. Matt Damon, who was understandably nervous about taking part in a number of nude scenes for the movie, has admitted that he is regularly seen in the buff in the forthcoming HBO film about the relationship between his character Scott Thorson  and the 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,” he was quoted as saying. “I mean, it’s tastefully done. But this movie’s not going to be for everyone.”

The 42-year-old actor also discusses his love scenes with Douglas, and even complements him on his kissing technique. “Michael was a wonderful kisser,” he said. “My concerns ended up mattering a lot less once we were filming. The dynamic between the men was complex and interesting.” He also described how the two of them thought hard about how to act out their scenes of passion. “We both have a lot of gay friends, and we were not going to screw this up,” he said.

“It wasn’t 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 lounge and start kissing him.

“And throughout the script, it’s not like I kiss him just once. We drew it up like a football plan,” he added.

And knowing Hollywood, I know this movie will come out making you believe in the faux reality of the movie. Such is the attention these actors and moviemakers give to their work. Make we dey see nah. Shebi the movie is slated for a 2013 release date…issorait.
