Wow — steamy! In a brand new teaser for HBO’s film ‘Behind The Candelabra’, Hollywood heavyweights Matt and Michael share a sexy bath, wear glittery outfits, and of course there is some piano playing!
We are used to seeing sexy hot tub scenes on The Bachelor, but not ones with Matt Damon and Michael Douglas!

‘Behind The Candelabra’ Teaser — New Video
Michael plays the famous entertainer in the new film which will air on HBO on May 26, and Matt, 42, plays his younger lover Scott Thorson. While focusing on his career as America’s best pianist, the film also highlights Liberace’s controversial personal life, including his penchant for younger men and his fascination with plastic surgery.
“He was the biggest act in the world, and the whole time, petrified of his secret coming out,” Matt told EW about the film. “You see him in the movie going to a sex store — nowadays, he’d be [exposed] on Twitter so fast.”
Michael weighed in about playing such an iconic character and said “Of course, you’re never gonna be as good as he was.”
Michael’s face had to be digitally grafted onto a professional piano player’s for the movie because he does not play to that standard, but he sure rehearsed a lot!
“The moment I knew we were fine was the Sunday before we started shooting,” said Matt. “Michael had a brunch at his house, and his son [Dylan] sat up in front of everybody and did the entire monologue with the [piano-playing] hand movements and everything. And I thought, ‘Oh my God. I can’t imagine how much Michael has been rehearsing for his 11-year-old son to be able to actually do the thing!’”
