There are a multitude of rumors everyday about the scandals and secrets behind Hollywood’s golden doors. But Matt Damon, star of The Talented Mr. Ripley The Borne Trilogy and Good Will Hunting feels that he lives his life as authentically as possible. That’s why he’s so passionate about his role in the upcoming bipoic of Liberace in the HBO film”Behind the Candelabra

First Damon addressed why he’s never addressed the rumors that he may be gay:

I never denied those rumors,Because I was offended and didn’t want to offend my friends who were gay, as if being gay were some kind of fucking disease. It put me in a weird position in that sense.” 

When discussing the relationship portrayed in the film, Damon felt that the relationship is real and honest storytelling:

“These two men were deeply in love and in a real relationship – a marriage – long before there was gay marriage. That’s not an insignificant thing,Their conversations when they’re dressing or undressing or having a spat or getting ready for bed? That’s every marriage.” 

“It feels like you’re witnessing something really intimate you would normally see with a man and a woman, but instead it’s two men, which was thrilling. There’s stuff I think will make people uncomfortable. Great. It’s HBO – they can change the channel.” 

Damon is also sure to give his costar Michael Douglas praise for his performance and noted that both actors have many gay friends so they did not want to mess up their intimate scenes or “bullshit it”:

“Michael was a wonderful kisser. Normally I’d say no to nudity, but I just did a lot of it. … I mean, it’s tastefully done,. But this movie’s not going to be for everyone.” 

The release date for the upcoming biopic is still tentatively scheduled for sometime in 2013.
