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!

    • It's not that big of a deal

      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.

    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?

      "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.

    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.
