MICHAEL DOUGLAS AND MATT DAMON DONE UP AS LIBERACE AND HIS GAY BOYFRIEND
This is the first peek we’ve had of Michael Douglas dolled up in 1970’s polyester finery and bewigged as Liberace along with Matt Damon as his gay lover Scott Thorson for their HBO movie “Behind The Candelabra.” After Liberace dumped him, Scott sued the flamboyant singer for palimony in 1982 and wrote the book that revealed Liberace’s not so secret sexuality. During their relationship, Liberace paid for Scott to have plastic surgery to look more like him – he enjoyed pretending Scott was his son. Matt makes a rather fetching pretty boy – in the scene above the two are shopping for a new car. The photo below is the real Liberace and Cher in character as Laverne.
