If you missed it — and even if you didn’t — the HBO Liberace biopic “Behind the Candelabra” premiered over the holiday weekend and brought us more Matt Damon skin than we can recall ever seeing (PLEASE correct us if we’re wrong). Of course, our “Magic Mike” helmer hero Steven Soderbergh directed the movie, starring Michael Douglas as the legendary Liberace and Damon as his lover Scott Thorson, so what else would one expect?
Here are the 10 Most Important Matt Damon Screen Grabs From “Behind the Candelabra” — but for his bare butt, which we can’t show you here (BUT, on that score, it’s the wonderful superherofan.net to the rescue once again!):
With the release of the full-length trailer for “Behind the Candelabra,” we are getting a better look at HBO’s Liberace biopic and its star Matt Damon. Check out the screencaps from the trailer (embedded below) for Damon and co-star Michael Douglas in various states of undress. We’re loving Matt’s hot white Speedo, but we’re still awaiting that metallic thong!
There is one word and one word only for this photo of Michael Douglas and Matt Damon on the cover of the new Entertainment Weekly, and that word is FABULOUS. The pair are all dolled up as Liberace and his much-younger lover Scott Thorson to promote their upcoming HBO movie “Behind the Candelabra,” and they are BEAUTFUL. No wonder one of their hot ‘n’ heavy sex scenes was a one-take masterpiece… just look at ‘em!
And ya know what’s making the already perfect Damon even more perfect? After enduring his beauty regime to portray a metallic-thong-wearing Thorson, he’s is all to acutely aware of how painful and humiliating prettying ourselves up for our men can be, as he tells EW:
“Every Sunday night, this girl would come to my house and I would stand in my garage and I would hike my boxer briefs up into the crack of my a— and she would give me a spray tan,” explains Damon, who spends plenty of the movie in tiny swimsuits, and wasn’t too excited about his real-life wife seeing his bronzed backside. “We’ve been through three childbirths, we’ve been in the trenches, there are no secrets. But I really wish she didn’t see that. That’s too much.”
It probably was a bit much for his wife, but us? We say BRING ON THE METALLIC THONG!
Matt Damon, why must you always be so awesome? Last night, he took revenge on nemesis Jimmy Kimmel, took over “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” renamed it “Jimmy Kimmel Sucks” and basically ran riot with a host of A-list guests as a tied-up Kimmel squirmed in the background. It was beyond delightful.
