What Matt Damon didn't want his wife to see
Matt Damon said he and Luciana Barroso, his wife of seven years, have “no secrets,” but there’s one thing he wasn’t ready for her to see.
(Hint: It's not the intimate scenes he shares with Michael Douglas in “Behind the Candelabra.”)
The actor, who plays Liberace’s lover Scott Thorson in the HBO movie told Entertainment Weekly that he had to get spray tans on his backside to rock his character’s metallic thong.
“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,” Damon said.
Despite having been with Barroso “through three childbirths,” Damon added, “I really wish she didn’t see that. That’s too much.”
Douglas stars as Liberace in the Steven Soderbergh-directed TV movie, which is based on Thorson’s 1988 autobiographical novel, “Behind the Candelabra: My Life With Liberace.”
It’s Douglas’ first role since announcing he “beat” throat cancer in January 2011. As he told EW, “It was great to get back. It gave me a new appreciation for what I do, taking advantage of it.”
“Behind the Candelabra,” which also stars Debbie Reynolds and Dan Aykroyd, is expected to air on May 26.

Definitely consider that that you stated. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the internet the simplest thing to remember of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed whilst people consider issues that they plainly don't recognise about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the entire thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal. Will probably be again to get more. Thanks
Liberace was gay. Well, I never saw that one coming.
Matt Damon sounds like an ASS.
If he can't play a role of a gay man without making such a big fuss about it maybe he's not meant to be an actor!
I'm pretty sure he means he didn't want his wife to see him with his underwear jammed up his ass because he didn't think his wife would find it attractive.
It has nothing to do with gay or straight.
Who in this century refers to a woman as "this girl"? Or was it a nine year-old who spray-painted his fatty rear end?
It's an affectionate term. I always say my 83 year old Dad's girlfriend is his girl. She's 76,
your more boring then we thought
You know, I should be offended by all the gay jokes, but I'm way too excited about Matt Damon and far too busy cleaning the saliva off my mug to be bothered by that much stupidity.
This reminds me of that other time I was bored...
so many want to say, "well, why did you click...." and should be proud that you are so dopey
Don't be such a prude, Matt. It probably turned her on.
He is just another self absorbed, overpaid Hollywood actor creep.
It was his teeny weenie! He didn't want his wife to see it! How preposterous!
Why does Michael Douglas disgust me but Matt Damon just makes me laugh?
How disgusting, this will be one I don't need to see.
I agree. Matt Damon does not need to lower himself to parts like this. What an example to set for his kids.
don't make people think your low....your not low
She will give him the perfect stability he needs as a friend and in a positive direction....
go tell your daddy
i find that rude to someone who is not gay...makes the man look like an idiot i'm not sure why people do that
RIGHT AFTER RUFUS UNDER MILEY ARTICLE...
AND DELETE THEM TO SABOTAGE MAR....THAT'S WHY WE KEEP THE ORIGINAL
WE KEEP THE ORIGINALS AND WHAT YOU DELETE FROM THE SYSTEM FOR MONTHS NOW...KAY?
Celebrities and crack if they aren't smoking it they are getting it spray tanned.
One too many town insults and for that–tina and amy
tina and amy
will have too take a professional hit for their behavior and what information has returned too me in the last 6 months
by the tina's mouth
all in shape for him soon and then we go!
So many stupid comments, mostly anti-gay but some that are otherwise just plain stupid.
Here's a spoiler alert... Liberace was GAY! If you don't like gay people, why the h*ll did you open this article up? If you don't like Matt Damon, the same question should be asked.
Honestly people! How sad are your lives that you feel compelled to read articles that offend your particular sensibilities?
Actually the head line didn't suggest anything about gays. It said " what Matt Damon doesn't want his wife to see."
This is Matt and Michael's coming out roles apparently.
Well, Johnny, you fell for it (a phony headline) one more time.
everybody knows anyway its not like the movie doesn't suck
Keep your mouth shut your better off–would not go near this move EVER
If you don't like the idea of the movie, why did you read the article?
was going too ask you the same question...if you don't like it don't view it.
"Suffocated"- You used the word "your" twice. Is it totally lost on you that they aren't both possessives and that one should be "you're"?
Yes, grammar and spelling matter. Yes, your message is more important than those things. However, if you write like crap it distracts from your message, which is then lost on the intended reader.
keep you mouth shut your better off....
So we're supposed to take a guy that spray paints his ass seriously on other topics...?
Yes. Far more seriously than we should take you, who either have no understanding of context, or pretend to have no understanding of it.
that's is why i like too analyze the big picture first before determining conclusion
i don't like too judge until i research.
that's is why i like too analysis the big picture first before determining conclusion

2 want me as their gf...takes time i've only been out there a short time..gotta date the pic above first..lolol
i will care for him forever but snaps are only for the man ...
don't worry about gaga and she's not good at it..
Never never saw pictures of Liberace looking that lean. He was more on the hefty side. Maybe Danny Devito with a wig and stilts, would have looked more like the real Liberace.

mine are purple.
she was set up...
Stop the presses! Debbie Reynolds is still alive?
your aware she's in the car also right?
what else is new.
POOOOOOOOOP. : )
As long as they love each other then who cares? Congrats to a wonderful couple.
How long have Matt and Michael been a couple? I think they look so cute together.
Woulda been better to get Tom Cruise and John Travolta in the starring roles. They have years of practice being queens.
Please quit picking on them. I think it is sweet that Matt is gettng his behind painted for his boyfriend. He must love him very much.
GROSS. REALLY GROSS.
Don't be jealous that he looks better than you in a thong, honey.
Ms. J is in the house!
you need creativity in your lives...
