Celebrity Friday: Michael Douglas and Matt Damon

The upcoming HBO bio-pic Behind The Candelabra about the life of Liberace directed by openly gay, Oscar-winning director Steven Soderbergh is getting huge buzz. It stars Oscar-winning Michael Douglas as Liberace and Matt Damon as his lover Scott Thorson who famously sued the flamboyant piano showman for palimony in the 1980s.

Soderbergh has said publicly that despite the participation of such famous, highly decorated film talent he could not find a single Hollywood studio to back his movie adapted from Thorson's revealing book Behind The Candelabra: My Life With Liberace because they said it was "too gay."
