Matt Damon gets respect for hot tub scenes

Jun 16 2013, 3:34am CDT | by

Michael Douglas' admires how exposed Matt Damon allowed himself be for 'Behind the Candelabra'.

The 68-year-old actor plays gay pianist Liberace in the film, while Matt plays his lover Scott Thorson, and Michael was impressed with how well the younger actor handled their hot tub scenes.

Michael told the Hollywood Reporter: "We did have a lot of pages in the hot tub. But Steven is very tasteful, and we have had a couple of sections choreographed so as not to embarrass anyone. We just got it on. Look, I so tip my hat to Matt. I know in my prime, I don't know if I could have done what he does here."

Michael chose to appear in the film as it had an emotional depth and resonance, rather than just being a camp romp.

He added: "We knew, with [director] Steven [Soderbergh], this was not going to be about winking at the audience. It was not going to be La Cage aux Folles. This was a relationship between two people who loved each other a lot.

"I swear after a few minutes of watching it, I forget it's Matt and myself, and then I literally forget it's two guys.

"In their arguments in Richard La Gravenese's screenplay, you can hear a married couple having at it."

Jon Hamm: ‘I don’t get the mystery of faith. I’m too much of a math guy’

Sep 16 2014 6:35am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

I’m not sure if Jon Hamm gave this interview to The Irish Independent or if the newspaper has reprinted an interview Hamm gave with another outlet. For what it’s worth, I can’t find these quotes anywhere else, so I think this is an original piece. Jon is promoting Million Dollar Arm, Mad Men and various assorted projects, and as always, he’s brassy and opinionated. You can read the full piece here and here are some ...

Hold Up - Matt Damon Used What For His Ice Bucket Challenge?!

Aug 26 2014 4:16pm CDT | Source: Pop Sugar

Unlike most of the celebrity ALS Ice Bucket Challenge videos we've seen, Matt Damon's version tells a story, specifically about why he decided to pour toilet water (you read that right) all over himself. As Matt explains, he has a very good reason for doing something that sounds so ridiculous. Don't let that keep you from watching the video, though - you wouldn't want to miss out on Matt's infectious smile, which makes more than a couple of appearances. Plus, ...
